A photo from RobbieD

I apologize for the quality of the photo but you can still make out something that is extremely odd to say the least. Anybody see something strange? LOL

Just passin through! Must have been fun to assemble? Must line up with a hole in the stud the box is nailed to. Or... is the box nailed through the back?

Well, I have heard about that newfangled directional boring ending up with gas lines through sewers, telephone cables through gas lines, hey, even EMT through handy boxes!

That is a good one though. Things that make you go "HMMMM".

This is in a poured wall. Someone actually ran a piece of rigid right thru the box. LOL I guess it was in the way and they were too lazy to go around it? Really lazy I guess because they did it before the concrete was poured. Very wierd. I was told that there was a receptacle in this box, must have been tight! Just thought I would share this photo because it is something I have never seen before.

Your lucky, I guess. I wouldn't want to see this, unless it was being demolished [Linked Image]
