From Not Always Learning:
The security guard in this story started teaching himself about electrical equipment because he was tired of his houses burning down from faulty wiring. Not only does he save a tech-inept tech student from himself and fix several other students' busted projects, the last line of the story says that he knew enough to test out of all but the most advanced classes! note For those that might not get what that means, the guard already knew enough about the subject that only the more advanced classes would have provided him with additional knowledge, and so, after passing tests to prove it, he was excused from needing to take the redundant courses.
