Words of Wisdom from Dejan

Yesterday's nugget of wisdom from Dejan, our global mechatronics instructor:

"Do not touch the wires if you do not want to be carmelized."

Many of his sayings belong on T-shirts.

(Definition, carmelization, from (
"Caramelization is a culinary phenomenon that occurs when carbohydrates like sugar are heated to temperatures of 300°F or higher, causing them to turn brown.")

N.B. Dejan's English vocabulary is impressive. I don't recall the last time I used the word "carmelize" in normal, everyday conversation.
