Maybe having a better name too. And a different director. And lead. And writers.

/you know what, not being made would have made that franchise much, much better
//or a live action beast wars adaptation

Volunteer firefighters removed the man's body about 11pm while a kaumatua blessed the scene.

Ohm, well what a shocking story. Watt I really want to know is why he climbed up the pole in the first place.  Was he so amped up from the fight that he lost his head?

He got a modified Shocker: yelling from the pink and two hundred volts up the stink!

Did he go to Robot Heaven afterwards? According to Shia, they'll let just about anybody in these days.

That is sad.

Question is... was he actually trying to commit suicide, or was he just trying to get away from his girlfriend?
'Cuz, that is a really bizarre, yet original way to commit suicide.  II wonder how common that is. His girlfriend is lucky she didn't also get completely fried when she made contact with him.

I've watched about seven of those videos so far, and the idiot keeps electrocuting himself in every one. You think he would've learned after the third video.

reportedly the man was last heard to shout "Bumblebee!"

There once was a young man named Blass,
Whose balls were made out of brass.
When he'd bang them together,
They'd play "Stormy Weather",
And lightning would shoot out of his ass.

P=IE.

It's not just a good idea, it's the law!

Obviously there's more than meets the eye.

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: P=IE.

Don't forget E=IR. The resistance from hand to hand is going to be several mega-ohms, and you'll need to factor that in before you can find the amps through his body.

You're grounded for not resisting such bad puns.

I liked the bonus factoid in the story: 32 homes lost power oh noes!

also FTA: "Fire Service volunteer support officer Colin Kitchen said...."

Let's see. He already has a silly surname at birth, then his parents go "Alliteration in someone's full name doesn't sound goofy at all. Let's give him a first name starting with the "k" sound." Then they choose a name with the last syllable being "in" to ensure he endures lifelong taunts of "gee it's cold in the kitchen" and "anyone seen Col?" "yeah, he's in the kitchen."

He had his promising career as a conductor cut short.

The guy wasn't very fond of keeping up with current affairs.

This was one of those headlines that made me think, "shiat, I might know the person." Alas, no.

My former roommate collected Transformers. He displayed them in huge bookshelves and sealed glass display cases (5-6 feet tall). And if one of those tipped and fell over onto someone, I'm sure the person would leave in a bodybag.

Actually that's exactly what happened in Revenge of the Fallen. LaBeef died after he and Thumbs got into a fight because he wouldn't say "I love you." (Granted not right away, but it was after their fight.) The problem was he was brought back to life in the stupid dream.

/God I hate that I know those movies almost by heart.
//loved Transformers as a kid.

That's an odd response to an argument

"When they arrived they discovered a young man had climbed a power pole and been electrocuted." How is that for a tribute to Douglas Adams?

Not killed by a transformer. Killed by the electric current going though a transformer. If the transformer had, for example, fallen down on top of him, then one could say the transformer killed him.
