This is what it looks like when it burns a hole in my pocket.

Right now, Jason and I are both standing next to the battery pack, staring at it and waiting for it to charge. Uh, Reed I guess is sticking butter knives into electrical sockets. I'm not really sure.

I really wonder where this saying came from. I mean how many times have you actually heard of someone burning a hole in their pocket? Is it from cowboys who stood too close to the fire? Those victorian pocket heaters that you kept live coals in? Perhaps an ironing gone awry? I'll have to investigate...
