This guy is retarded: 1/2 million volts can travel through quite a bit of material... that means out there in that jungle like place, if a spider spins a web from a tree to that heilo... lets just say u have one very expensive bomb

@goryarbiter Pot calling the kettle black!: Yeah, through those high winds I'm pretty sure the spider would have a hard time getting to that heli.

Mecapalero - 2 years ago
Huh?: So what does he accomplish?
@Mecapalero He maintains: the power lines without shutting them down.
LordoftheMilfs - 2 years ago
he's putting old power lines out of service: and he's not getting electrocuted because the electricity has nowhere to travel to.

@TehNetherlands You are so right: its a pity they wont let you out of the retard school.
Bulldog3071 - 2 years ago
@TehNetherlands Not Fake: This is standard patice in the industry to do PMI in remote locations, its clear you did not stay in school or slept thriugh most of it.
Littledigz27 - 2 years ago
@TehNetherlands Think about it: I love how on very video there are people calling them fake, many probably are but this one is not, they would not be electrocuted because they are not grounded, hence the current has no solid path to the ground. If there is no path there is electroshock. The electricity you see going from the power line to the helicopter is simply the helicopters atoms becoming positively charged from the line itself

@TehNetherlands think about it: it obviously not fake and by replying in detail you just gave this little fa99ot an erection.
timmahhh - 2 years ago
@TehNetherlands It's called equal potential: no electricity will travel through you if it has nowhere to go. turn off your computer and open a book once in a while.

He repairs: power lines while they're hot so they dont have to go out of service. If he's not making six figures, nobody should.

Valkyrie - 2 years ago
@devkor777 I hope all those figures: are to the left of the decimal! That would take some major cajones to do that
