Anyone who has picked up a charged capacitor that has been lying for a spell will tell you just what a myth self discharge really is.
I pulled a piece of kit off a shelf, where it had been sitting for a couple of years, and got the motherf..... of all belts. It had a couple of 1500v, large capacity, capacitors mounted on the rear, and unbeknown to me the bleed resistor was open circuit. I accidentally came in contact with the ungrounded terminal and it nearly killed me.
