FTA "I'm glad that I'm still kicking and alive and I got all five fingers and five toes,"
heh, I know what he meant but a happy one armed one legged arborist reminds me of the start of one of those Polish jokes.

Pet Peeve. "Eletrocution" means the person DIED. The word subby is looking for is "Shocked".

Maybe this guy should branch out towards some other career.

"I'm glad that I'm still kicking and alive and I got all five fingers and five toes."

Uh, on which hand and or foot?

That's almost 8 volts per sting. Is that bad?

He should charge more for what he does.

rev. dave: He should charge more for what he does.


Does that mean a cab driver who repeatedly gets into near-fatal accidents should charge more?

FTA -- "I'm glad that I'm still kicking and alive and I got all five fingers and five toes," said Benavidez

And can't count.

Sadly, he was the one charged - with 13,000 volts!

Sorry.

that's simply too fast for civilian use, would we please consider banning assault arborists like this maniac?!

I'm going to need to know how many aircraft carriers that is equal to. Without that comparison, I don't really know what to think...

TFA:While trimming an Afghan pine tree in Las Cruces, New Mexico, arborist Craig Benavidez accidentally came into contact with a power line, instantly sending 13,000 volts coursing through his body.

Obviously, this is a new method of attack by al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

wow, this must be a new record, I just got two reverse greenlights!

Both of my links were greenlit, then were discovered to be dupes!
