    How NOT To String Phone/Cable

    Thought you might find this amusing: Man on Wire, telephone wire. Really. This is how phone / cable lines are strung in big cities in parts of Asia. I've cut the audio volume in half, it's actual MUCH louder than this!

    He's about 1.5 floors above the street on phone wiring. The wires above are mains.

    And you thought birds on the wires above you were bad!

    Don't even think about trying this.

    Kind of looks like some fellow ham radio operators stringing up a new wire antenna.....

    So that's why I don't have cable.
    My phone line is underground
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    This is similar to what happens in South Africa, but here instead of stringing cables 'they' remove them and sell the copper, leaving the public without power and phones.

    I see the worker believes in safety - he is wearing a handkerchief over his face to eliminate toxic fumes and gloves for hand protection; what more can you ask?
