@Fluorescent05, I know right? LOL Funny thing is, I don't even know where in the heck he's getting all that stuff from. (I'll ask him)
But it's like his own virtual world that he creates, with... surprisingly accurate lighting. Very satisfying to watch, and I really don't know
why it's so satisfying.

Watching a line crew intentionally blow a fuse on a 13.2kv line to locate a faulty underground cable. The sound of the fuse blowing along with the intense flash of light is more exciting than anything I can think of.
