Alfonso:

You can see my cranium on display at the Smithsonian Museum of Anthropology
in the Neanderthal section.  In spite of my primitive lineage, I walk
upright, know how to make fire (by pushing the "light" button on my gas
grill), make tools, speak a primitive language known as "geek" (80% of the
words are acronyms), and am even capable of designing electronic circuits
that actually work!  ;-)

Your analogy about the fuse is faulty.  People are not electronic
components.  If people were electronic components, here is how crime would
transpire:

1) A component shorts out (i.e. a transistor).  The transistor is now a
criminal.  If he is a small-time criminal, he is in a SOT-23 case.  If he is
a big-time criminal, he is in a TO-220 or TO-3 case.

2) The criminal transistor moves around to other components on the board,
killing them and stealing their color bands, enamel, or epoxy encapsulation.
That's like stealing the shirt off a person's back.

3) The criminal transistor is chased around the PCB by red and blue flashing
LEDs and piezo buzzers.  If the transistor comes to the end of a PCB trace,
he jumps over to an adjacent one and the pursuit continues.  Occasionaly,
the transistor jumps to another PCB, which is analogous to escaping the
country.

4) Once the criminal transistor is caught, he is put into protective custody
(anti-static foam) until a trial begins.

5) The trial is presided over by a microprocessor as judge.  The jury
consists of various components of all types, but most are low-quality
rejects, because the defense bins the jurors and tosses out the high-quality
ones.

6) The prosection is a dual comparator configured as window comparator, to
show how the accused actions are outside the range of what is legally
acceptable.

7) The defense is random noise generator followed by a high gain stage,
which attempts to drive the jurors into saturation with random noise.

8) The jury suffers latch-up, and cannot arrive at a guilty verdict.
Sometimes, the microprocessor judge may obtain some operating current
through the input protection diodes on his I/O pin that interfaces with the
defense.  This is known as a bribe.  Unfortunately, the watchdog does not
reset the judge, because the watchdog was not enabled.

9) Unable to be convicted, the criminal transistor is freed.  Some time
later, he strikes again and the cycle repeats.
