I was very curious where this SO cable came from after the panel cover was removed.

In addition to the problem with the SO cord, it looks like that 1/2" coupling is missing a set screw.

Randy,
Looks like a piece of "larger" romex.

Had they put the extra length of pipe on this installation they would have been forced to derate the conductors, and that would have totally fouled up a code compliant installation. And that other wire entering the two inch conduit dosen't have conduit on it and it was installed by a real electrician.
