I always think of...

by Doc Nickel

Stories like this always make me think of the one news article from several years ago, where some street thug decided that the clean, unsullied boxes in a transformer substation needed to be tagged.

So he jumps the fence, gets out his spray can, and apparently the moment the mist hit the air, he became the local ground to a multi-KV line, and became, as they say in the parlance, DRT- daid ra'at thar.

Mr. Tagger having forgotten- or, more likely, never learned- that there are often times where the fence or door or gate is there to protect you, not to protect what's inside. happy.gif
