Any of y'all catch " Beyond Tough " this week on TLC?

Pretty cool clip of transmission linesmen doing their "hot" thing. Some clips of us regular Joes getting some sparks too...

That's Beyond Tough, Baby!


Ice-T didn't want to become (a fresh boiling cup of) Earl Grey!

(After seeing the clips of arc-flashes, my step-son asked me "Is that what you do, Dad?" my answer: I try not to do that... and the look of horror on my wife's face was priceless! I love my job {sometimes}!)
