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.

Surfinsparky, I didn't do it, and I'll even let it remain here for the time being. [Linked Image]

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.
