How does that get through all the phone and power lines?

  1. When I was a kid, there was a house being moved up the road in front of our house. There was a guy on the roof with clippers cutting all the phone lines that crossed the street. I guess the power lines were high enough to be ignored.

  2. They take them down before they get to them and, immediately following, another crew puts them back up.

  3. It's an advanced country. They don't have power/phone lines. Everything is underground. No outages from storms either.

    1. Here in western Washington most lines are still above ground because of the cost to bury them but also due to flooding in many areas. Amazingly poor drainage around here for all the rain we get.

    2. (Rickvid in Seattle): Gets even worse every 20 years or so when hurricane force winds push over half the Douglas firs taking out most of the above ground power lines.

    3. The temperate rain forest of Western Washington are on glacial till. That is, when the two miles of ice receded, it left behind some really garbage soil.

      Climate change is real. And so, apparently, are time machines, so that humans could travel many, many millennia back to the past to cause it.

  5. That is a wind tower mask. Did you know that you can not recycle it? They bury them. It also takes more energy to make than it can produce.

  8. It is Europe, there are no air strung wires and the street lights are on corners on posts, wiring is all underground (cost has no bearing on making the city "nice).
