    Code is for City Slicker folks. We just Git-R-Done on the City Slicker Farms in Texas.
    Yes it will WORK. Keep the foil hat on, and you will be safe, I know because I wear one
    OK, now I understand why the Midwest and wild Wild West have so many lightning storms. Lightning currents start from the ground up to the clouds that are stripped of their electrons and need to be replenished by the abundance of them spare ones in Texas just jumping around the place looking for a new home And I just realized what makes those Texican/Mexican jumping beans jump too

    That is true, but new NEC codes (BR549.1234.0987) don't allow a ground conductor to carry current in a Normally operating mode, It is for a fault and safety only.

    The most important code is Morse Code.
    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.
