Video Of Some Sweet Power Line Arcing During An Ice Storm

April 20, 2018

Note: Some brief, appropriate language.

This is a video shot from outside a gas station in Ypsilanti, Michigan during an ice storm that causes the power lines in the area to enter arc-madness mode. They almost sound like a jet flying overhead. It sucks Ben Franklin wasn't around to see this, it probably would have blown his mind. Or at least blown his bifocals off. Did you know I wear bifocals? "Because you need them?" No...I just put my dad's on whenever I want to get dizzy in a hurry. "You're a wild child, GW." I sure am. Plus when I was six I'd lost a lot of baby teeth and my adult teeth still hadn't grown in yet so I'd use my grandma's dentures whenever I wanted to eat jerky.

Keep going for the whole video. Also, can an arcing power line cook a hotdog? I'm asking for a friend with a hotdog on a string.

Thanks to Christian, who would have stopped that arcing with one well-thrown pair of shoes tied together.

    It's easy to forget the raw, awesome power of electricity when we have so many gadgets that use it, even in our pockets. We should all pay deep respect to the power of electricity.

    By brutally murdering everyone who films video vertically.
