It's no less safe to discharge them gently, first using a resistor then 
discharging directly, than discharging them with a "bang."

Besides, if you discharge them with a "bang" a tiny piece of molten metal 
could hit you in the eye.

I don't normally wear safety goggles while working inside a transmitter.  
That itself could be a hazardous distraction.
