Too bad one of the poles didn't come down and fry the dumbbell.... sorry, I have no sympathy. Would have served them right... if it is as hot as the guy said in the video, it would have done an instant dead shock to them.... what they deserve. Rather than hurt innocent people..

most people don't realize just how far a spark can travel from one of those electric lines. We're not talking inches, we're talking feet! A lot of innocent people get hurt every year because they think that as long as they don't touch it, they're safe.

Zone 6B or 7 can't decide

High voltage lines are no joke

I heard about a guy that was building a deck for his house; it has taken several months so far, because he can only find a couple of boards at a time.

I live only a few miles from an International paper plant. They cut pine, make lumber and paper product like fount in diapers or such (?). Huge piles of lumber there. Not treated, so indoor use. Flood and fire has affected lumber sources....as well as grain crops. Add to that the issues with transporting, sick people and there you have it...limited availability.
