    Default Generator Safety

    When hooking up a portable generator to your Service panel, please do it properly so you do not put these guys safety in Jeopardy. Where are there safety harnesses?

    They look like Plumbers.

    What are Plumbers doing on a power pole ?

    I guess they were making sure the water pipe was grounded. Or maybe looking for a Hot Rod. (Ground ?)

    Good thing that is only a 7200 Volt line.

    at 15KV/inch, they'd need Joan of "ARC" to protect them (or their union) And don't stand under them; watch out for bird droppings.

    Default Shooting the Moon

    That reminds me when I was working at Edward Air Force base supporting Shuttle landings.

    After the landing we would have a big Pizza and Beer party.

    On the way back from the party I would drive and 4 other guys that were riding with me would jump out of the car at stop lights and Moon the other party goers that were behind us. The guys loved it when I caught every red light.

    Many times it was the Astronauts and the top NASA people that were around us getting Mooned.

    I don't know how we all keep our jobs after some of the silly things we did.

    It sure gave people something to talk about when we got back to Houston.


    I am not sure why Guys get such a big kick over shooting the moon. Guess they are the same ones that light their farts for a good laugh.
