Re: Logic bombs are unprofessional


Same in my sphere of employment. (Commercial/residential electrician). I am forbidden by law to interfere with power company gear, and forbidden by elfin safety law to work 'live'.. The power company charge enormous amounts to do a disconnect/same day reconnect and can't guarantee it. So if you ask the power co guy nicely, and don't look too much like someone who's likely to grow certain green plants, they'll give you seals and tell you to be careful.

All hell would break loose if the messing with the power company's main service head blew up on you, from a legal liability P.O.V and from pure physics. But we're careful.

Ideally the rules work. But the world ain't ideal
