real bright yobbo, this one..

interesting user remarks on the story (at the bottom of the page) as well:

>>"He is completely safe if he's only touching the wires. Also, voltage is not a measurement of current.

- Bob, UK"<<

safe until he tries to get down, I guess..

Probably a stunt done on a dare. I would have said to the person making the dare: "What, you got ___ for brains, trying to get me killed you ______!". I've defused a few "peer pressure" dares back when I was a kid with responses like the above.

I hope the above isn't too explicit for this forum. If it is, my apologies in advance.

(Edit)Wa2ise, FWIW, I agree with you, but I go along with Bob's post, and that is the reason for the edit, I hope you understand.

It's always been a G rated site, it will remain that way.

Speak here as you would in front of young kids.

There is no reason not to keep it clean.

Is that the overhead feed line for the train's pantograph?

If so, that would have been one for a Road Runner vs. Coyote cartoon.
