Not an electrician, but almost...
When I was very young (back in the 70s), I was fascinated by how the world worked, constantly pulling things to bits, trying to basically reverse engineer everything. (Much to the annoyance of my parents, as I sometimes also disassembled things like kitchen appliances and other items that were actually in use in the house!)
Electricity seemed such a mystery to me at the time, how can energy pass through wires! Pipes with liquids, levers, rotating shafts I understood, but a solid wire, how can anything get through that!?
One day, I was about 6 I think, in my bedroom, with my trusty Meccano screwdriver in hand (which were solid metal back then, and you can guess where this is going now), and a few bits of wire I pulled out of something, I decided to investigate.
BANG!!! Me now sat on the other side of the bedroom floor, some distance away from the now slightly blackened smoking mains socket where I'd been a moment earlier, with screwdriver still stuck in the live hole. Parents rush in, see me motionless, thinking the worse. At that point I apparently just started smiling, wide eyed!
After that, I regularly got donated electrical items to experiment, sometimes to try and fix (radios etc), electronic kits for Christmas way above my age range etc.
After leaving school some years later, where I'd focused on the sciences, especially physics, I went on to study Electronics, then got an apprenticeship at a local firm, later becoming one of their Electronics engineers for a few years.
In my 50s now, and I still want to know how everything works!
