Some guys here were talking about providing power (years ago) in a remote area, with a little third world village nearby.  The load on the generators seemed too high, and when they shut things down to investigate the village went dark.

They found nails through their feeders and burried telegraph wire heading towards the village.

The first problem is the wire is wrapped the wrong way around the screw.

I wondered about that...but then I realized it's LH threads.

I saw this on the BookFace the other day. My reply was (and remains), "someone would be getting an invoice for new feeders."

I wonder if they killed the power before drilling the feeder with a drywall screw?  ::)

How can you see the nut, it must be on the other side of the wire.
