=== Crowbar Circuits ===
Not sure where the term comes from, in some cases it is like throwing a crowbar in a machine, perhaps that is it.  Generally a crowbar circuit detects a fault and responds by creating a short of the input voltage.  In some cases removal of the input will reset the circuit, in other cases it may go on to blow fuses.
