If he'd had his seatbelt on, we wouldn't be discussing this. I hope they wrote him a ticket(assuming seatbelts are required in MO).

Gees, man!
I bet that guy is feeling good that them wires weren't bare power wires.
I find it amazing, them wires held his wieght,if it was me swingin' on them, they'd snap,for sure!.

stamcon,
What type of wires are those, that run perpendicular to the wire(s), that the guy is holding?.
Are they HV lines?, as they seem a lot thinner than the phone lines.
Just wondering.

There are so many wires I would have to think primary and secondary of ? voltage. It's hard to determine their distances relative to each other.
