Don't Piss on the Electric Fence OR This Pole On Street 51 and 310 (Unless You Want To Die)

Post by General Mackevili » Thu Aug 04, 2016 6:55 pm

Apparently a car crashed into this pole last month causing a short (or "ground"? I don't know what the correct term is, I'm not a fucking electrician), and as of July 23 it's still be electrocuting people, knocking them unconscious, who happen to touch it.

According to a Facebook post, they talked to authorities and the EDC, but they're not sure if it's been fixed.

Locals have been kind enough to tape it off and put up a warning sign.

Don't piss on it.

I can see people walking up to it & touching it just to test the accuracy of the signage. Just like a wet paint or fresh concrete sign. Yep, it' wet paint. Yep, it's wet crete. Yep, OUCH FUK. Yep.

When the US "Survivor" show taped its second season (in Australia), host Jeff Probst accidentally pissed on an electric fence. He lived to tell the story. I bet it was a rude shock though.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Luckily pissing in public is not done by the majority of people, who have been brought up with manners
