sparking


Explanation:
I cannot argue with my colleague's references. I can only say that I never heard that expression in 7 years as an electrician. We simply referred to the phenomenon as "F**K! That F**king circuit is f**king sparking again! Will someone get their ar*e in gear and fix the fu**er?"

Ah those were the days.. pure poetry on the shop floor ;-)
