Read on -- it gets better...

"I assume this is pvc conduit. It was glued with the coax already in it??? How long is it? The only time I've ever done anything like that was when I was running a long buried line. When it's a couple hundred feet, assembling the conduit as you go, with the wires already in it, is easier than pulling the wires afterwards."

Even though that BB is BS.
Ferrets used to be used to pull strings through conduits. Parts of Buckingham Palace were done that way. Honest!
