    the ability for this to happen is not rare.

    during bad lightning storms the last thing you want to do is be anywhere near steel fencing or metal guardrails. the current can travel FAR and if there's a puddle touching the fence or rail and you step in the puddle for the split second there's a strike you're toast too.

    do NOT forget power lines making the same connections during wind storms if you're stuck on the side of the road. the lines coming down will throw more than enough juice into the metal to do the same damage.

    that shit happens all the time on farms ,,as a kid my uncle had a game farm called Adirondack game farm .I can remember going to different farms to pick up the dead animals and taking them back to the farm to feed the wild cats . that wire makes one hell of a conductor .

    I really hadn't considered what you wrote. I guess my life being spent away from such things if that makes sense I hadnt thought of these dangers. Good you pointed this out, living in America is very different to UK.

    it's just from jobs i've had that i picked up the information.

    there's tons of hazard out there but some of it people never encounter.

    Seventeen hours on a plane... I've done thirteen before and thought I was going to lose my mind at nine hours. This would be an unholy terror.

    Business class, yes, anything below and I'd choose stop overs before subjecting myself to that torment. Either that or I'd pay for whatever knockout drugs they were willing to give me for the flight.

    That being said, I always thought that airplanes should move over to a hammock or sling chair system. Imagine the comfort of all being slung in rocking seats that lull you sleep as you fly. Think battleships of old ...
