So what's stopping you from flipping the breaker off, and testing the
circuit to make sure its dead? I see the maintenance guys and electricians
change outlets and switches on live circuits, but I wouldn't do it. I'd
rather go find the breaker. If worse omes to worse, I can short the line
to neutral with a disposable screwdriver, and the circuit will certainly be
dead then! Probably have to wait awhile for the effects of the blinding
spark to go away..
