Things That Scare You « on: July 07, 2016, 10:22:11 PM » Author: wattMaster
As a compliment to Things Which Annoy You, what things scare you? One thing is this one catchy Italian song, with horrid, evil 3D models, can't remember the name.

Why can't they just turn it off?

Because it would mean turning off power to lots of clients. Rerouting electricity is sometimes possible but on a line that serves customers directly, then it would mean a power outage, which the utility tries to avoid.

Then you are in a very dangerous position, does the power company care about Safety Or Convenience?
In this case, Convenience, but other utilities may care about Safety.

-Insanely loud and bright fireworks (think they are called salutes?)
-Being outside at night in COMPLETE darkness (you never know if there are raccoons that will suddenly scare the daylights, soft whites, and cool whites out of you)
I have more but that's all I can think of for now.

Depends a whole lot on what work is done, and the age and condition of equipment. For example low voltage distribution cables today are isolated and use isolation piercing connectors, so there are no energized bare conductors involved at all when you are splicing a branch to the line, all the work is clicking Plastic connectors onto the cable. Something like taking voltage measurements can only be done live. Some other things would be better done offline

Also, on a scale of danger, how bad you think connecting live wires is compared to driving on the highway ? A wrong movement in either position can kill you, and in driving on the highway you cant "freeze and think" either (the car is moving at speed), yet driving is ok and live electricity is considered more dangerous ?

I remember! It's called Sempre Di Domenica. Search at your own risk.
Little Note: I saw the music video, but It did not have any sound, which is odd, and I skipped around, but I don't actually know for sure if it has horrid, evil 3D models.

Disco classic `Automatic Lover` by Dee D Jackson from 1978 had a robot in the video, I was only 6 years old when this song came out, and use to have nightmares about this robot! ;D

Sounds scary, robots in 1978 must have been rudimentary!

I get terrified of Wasps, and will do anything to avoid them.
But actually kind of like going to the dentist! What makes you scared?

I am TERRIFIED of wasps. They seem to be aggressive for no reason and take joy in harassing me.  ???
