From an episode (37) of a cheesy cable show called 1000 Ways To Die (very loosely based on real stories, if at all), a Soviet chess master plays against a dedicated chess super computer with a robotic arm. The game does not go as easily as the chess master thought it would, which causes him to sweat profusely. As he touches a piece to make a move, his sweat drips on to the board, causing him to be electrocuted.

A cautionary tale for Steve Blincoe Shocked

I will see if I can find a clip of it online.


My memory failed me. The Comrade 5000 did not have a robotic arm.
