near my office pg&e are stringing across some new power lines. instead of having to drive the guys and climb the poles they are flying them pole to pole by helicopter. you couldnt pay me enough to do that!

Kind of looks like fun to me. I bet they make some good $$$ unless they're using Illegals.

Have you seen one hovering with the lineman sitting on the skid working on the lines?

Let's hope the guy flying the helicopter isn't the same guy that used to operate the chair swing ride at the local carnival.

Yeah, I agree. It's hard enough to rifle through (by memory or otherwise) one of those emergency checklists when you're sober as a judge. I wouldn't want to have to do it anyway, but particularly not with a hangover.

They should just get UMP or Camo boy to do it. With thier super powers they wouldn't need the helicopter :D

Damn, I thought it was eight feet :)

8 hrs + there's a max alcohol level too. But flying hung over ain't fun

I should have been drinking a whole lot more, that way both my pride and body wouldn't be hurting from sliding down the alley, flat on my face. Forgot to remove the shoe condom, and S*** that hurts. Seeing the Dr this afternoon for the probably broken finger.
