So, Why Doesn't This Happen More Often?

After watching a recent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the following cut scene came to mind:

After being tasered, Agent May wakes up handcuffed to a chair while a HYDRA agent stares menacingly down at her. After the usual banter, the HYDRA agent tells May that he wants information and he intends to torture it out of her.

HYDRA AGENT: I have a colleague who is an expert in making people... comply.

Agent May is suitably unimpressed.

HYDRA AGENT: But since we don't have any time...

The HYDRA agent pulls a hanging light out of its socket and breaks the bulb, leaving two exposed wires dangling free.

HYDRA AGENT: I'll just have to improvise...

The HYDRA agent touches the two exposed wires together. There's a spark and...

...and with a loud and final click, every single light and electrical appliance in the room, and possibly even the building, goes out. There's a pregnant pause.

HYDRA AGENT: Damn circuit breakers.

At which point Agent May kicks him in the nuts.
