Nobody would, safety shoes or otherwise. That's kinda why this person is dead.If it's not an approved safety shoe, I wouldn't step on cables with it. Simple.
Electrical Safety Shoes - Electricians and other personnel who work with electrical equipment can not only fall victim to electrical shock, but from objects that could roll or fall onto their feet that could either penetrate or crush them.www.arc-flash-clothing.com
The truth here is that, if it weren't for all the thievery and mismanagement at Eskom, the rollout of electricity infrastructure, together with cheap electricity prices (since SA has enormous amounts of coal reserves), would've proceeded as planned in the 90's, none of this would even exist.And nothing will be done about this as usual.
Which prompted the little gears in my head to engage and I'm now wondering - should Eskom default on its loans with our Chinese masters, will they take Eskom over and try to cut all illegal connections off?
Now that will start the real fun.
They should send a nice power surge through that specific transformer (especially at peak time when a lot of appliances is connected) and have said "minister of electricity" deal with the fallout...Area near us has a "minister of electricity" who organises al the illegal connections, some with fencing wire, others use the fences wires as a conductor etc. The people who get the power pay him, no dodging, it just isn't worth it. Municipality occasionally (once every few years) comes with massive security and disconnects the illegal wiring from street lights, sewer pumps etc but never follow up. The said Minister waits until they have buggered off then his minions connect it all up again. Business, S African style.
If water conducts electricity and he peed on the cable that would send a current straight back to his peen?
Nasty nasty way to go.
I wonder if there was someone with him or did they just find him lying in the grass with his dick out ?
I feel for the dude but flip I hate people pissing on the side of the road. Its really dangerous to just pull over on the highway and get out the car. Then people always need to piss on something for some reason so you see yellow marks on walls etc.
FFS.... we are not animals.
I am sure there is a by law prohibit you from doing that, pee next to the road.
I can never understand why it’s acceptable to do this.. I’ve driven in a lot in Gauteng, Western Cape and longer road trips between these and other provinces and have never felt the need to pull over end whip it out.
I suspect this may be on the municipal by-law level but I’ve not seen it ever enforced.
Reminds of the number of times I’ve seen a random guy(and lady once too) walking along the highway heading in to Cpt. Weird ****.
I can only think of 2 occasions where I had to do that, and that's in 22 or some such years of driving.
Does the 24m include infants? They piss pretty much where they want to.22 years is about 8000 days. So you pissed on average every 4000 days. So with say 24 million males in SA, there would be an average of 6000 of them pissing on the side of the road every day if they were like you.
