If they're caught, they'll be jailed faraday or two, that's for sure.

Looks like it's going to be a Happy Festivus for 41 families that otherwise couldn't afford poles.

phrawgh: SwiftFox: We figured it out eventually, didn't we?

There's the problem. Right there.

Actually it was Ben Franklin's invention of fire insurance that guaranteed the churches would fold sooner or later, so they could buy some. Now that was almost sinister.

When nobody was looking, Texx Tweaker took forty-one lightning rods. 41 lightning rods! That's as many as four tens plus one. And that's terrible.

Ohm man, <b>subby</b>. Nothing impedes you people from electrical puns, does it? Fark seems to have a hell of a capacitance for this kind of silliness, or maybe just very low reactance to it. I mean, watt the hell, it's not like this isn't the umpteenth time we've done this.

I guess it was time for an inductance of new farkers into the tradition anyway, huh? Puns are apparently Fark's crown joules.

from the ones I've seen, the lightning rods are literally a sharpened 5/8" rod of copper about two feet long. very easy to scrap at a recycler without getting asked too many questions, unlike showing up with a truckload of fire hydrants or manhole covers

It's just for a little weather experiment.

Ohm my Glob! What would induce someone to commit a crime of this amplitude? I hope charges are brought.
