When I was a kid (a LONG time ago) I used to frequent a surplus house 
here in Dallas and they had rows on monster capacitors lined up around 
the walls, all with the terminals wired together.  I learned the 
importance when I started to unwire one (who knows why, I was a kid!) 
and the clerk chewed a chunk out of my backside!  I guess it scared 
him.  He later explained the importance of the shorting wire and I have 
never forgotten it.   ....true story.
