Isn't that the same thing that happens when you place two dissimilar metals together? Fourth of July came early this year.

i do it to buy more beer!

john

btw,

if you look at the video closely in the beginning you can see the small flash on the right. that is the sf6 interuptor failing causing the flash over.

the best thing to do is run! fast!

the guys in the video are lucky, they have remote contol. when we do it you have to stand directly under the switch to operate it!

new shorts please!
