    I don't know who originally said it, but there is a quote for times like these:

    "Stupid Should Hurt".

    Glad to see he got hurt.

    Ok, so how much would that have wire been worth? $50 $100? Is it really worth probably dying over?

    The worse part is he'll probably sue the electric company and win.

    From what I know about substation design, this idiot had to cut through a 8 to 10 ft razor-wire covered chainlink fence just to get to the grounding cable. He wouldn't stand a chance in court.

    I'd like to see him sued by the utility for the damages they incurred resulting from the outage, but it would probably be pointless since he probably doesn't have much for assets.

    After 80,000 volts and 100% of his body burned, I have a feeling it's going to be his surviving family that will have to sue.

    I assumed dude was dead, considering everyone else has been talking about him as if he was dead and how Darwin Awards was brought up. If he's dead, he's the winner for sure. If not, unfortunately, he'll only be honorable mention...
