I don't know what publication this illustration came from, but a copy of it is hanging on the wall in our shop at work:

Squirrels definitely have electrical bridging skills

A similar thing happened several years ago at a radio station I was working at, though it was a large bird rather than a squirrel.

The lights went out, the UPSes started chirping, and the generator fired up and transferred automatically. Commonplace at broadcast stations in small hick towns on the outskirts of the distribution grid. After an hour of the generator being on, I started to get a little concerned. Went outside and saw that the lights were still on all around us. Looked at the pole outside, and saw the big breaker on one of the three phases tripped out at the primary.

When the power company arrived and went up the pole, the lineman found the remains of a pair of bird feet welded to the top of the can. Nothing else was left, though upon closer inspection we did find some feathers on the ground. Probably a hawk.





Searching youtube produces a variety of interesting results on this topic; some animal, some human. They are not for the squeamish. This is one of my favorites. Don't click unless you want to see a man die:

This is a cactus needle that poked through my hand guards.They are ~1/8" thick polypropylene(i think, poly something). It happens about once a year, but ive never seen one penetrate so deep and with so much girth.



And a 2nd once happened about an hour later! it was the normal size and penetration though... lol

Why dumb? It's pretty clever seeing that large slabs of concrete take ages to cure and this is already premade. The only thing i'd do differently is use glue/concrete between the pieces to seal them.

That's not exactly helping the point. I mean, Rome was only the dominant military and economic power on earth for, what, not even 1,300 years? And then *boom*, no more native speakers of Latin.

******* aqueducts... Look at 'em sitting there, all like "hey, look at me! I was built prior to the birth of Christ, and I'm still reliably carrying water across Italy without any external power input."

I'll bet you a dollar they collapse under their own weight long before the sun goes supernova.
