Electric Fireball Traveling Down Residential Power Lines

November 5, 2013


Note: Several dirty words but they aren't nearly loud or distinguishable enough so yell your own as you watch.

So if you don't follow Geekologie on Facebook because you're too embarrassed to admit to your friends you and I are in a relationship, my hard drive crashed yesterday. And, because I never learn anything from the past, I hadn't backed up my computer in ten months. I dunno, I guess I just think nothing bad will ever happen to me. I'm an optimist -- a real glass half-full kind of guy. Unfortunately, that glass was filled with chocolate milk and now I've spilled it all over myself and am left trying to explain why it looks like I shit the front of my pants. Anyway, I installed a new hard drive and I'm back now. I'm not sure if I can salvage my old drive, but what do you care about the flowery poetry I write in my spare time anyways? This is video of an electric fireball traveling down a residential powerline in Montreal until it dies at a fuse cutout in a sparkling finale. It was all filmed in stunning portrait mode because apparently some people have a harder time learning from the past than I do.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to TTTT and Gumbo, who wants a body massage?

    If we don't get a book of GW's poetry I will riot.

    I can forgive the sideways filming, but the lack of video editing (excessive build up at the beginning) and then hiding around the corner when the action starts is unforgivable.

    However I'd probably hide too, given the circumstances...

    There was also one that happened on the high way not far from this location, it almost caused a huge accident as people were hitting the breaks scared as fuck. I was there!
