And the irony is he was trying to pay less for his power. What is that I smell? Smells like burnt flesh, electricity, and a Darwin Award Nomination. [grenade]

Chances are nobody really wants to see this. Please repost it as a link, with a warning of graphic content. Otherwise it's gonna have to go away...

Is there a story to this? Is this real or a

It's from rotten.com, under powerline thief.  There are 8 shots.  Apparently this took place in Russia.  The guy was attempting to steel insulators!

[b]This man was found atop a transmission pole after an unsuccessful attempt to steal aluminum power cable in a state of the former Soviet Union. Even little crimes become capital when the laws of Darwin are in play. [/b]
