I woke up this morning with the biggest WTF look on my face, but it was actually an awesome dream nonetheless.
Daktologist and I were hanging out in my garden, chilling on the lawn with some deck chairs, enjoying the sunshine. For some reason, there were power cables running overhead and Dak, being the crazy fucker he is, decides to climb up and cut one down. He doesn't electrocute himself, presumingly because he's some kind of electrical expert. He brings the cable down to me and electrocutes something - it shoots across the lawn and the wire glows red hot. I was shitting myself at the thought of being so close to the cable, but I let him carry on regardless.
"Now, that's what happens when the cable is still in it's protective casing. Watch what happens if I strip the cable - it becomes 100 times more powerful!", he says in his funny, borderline insane voice.
Sure enough, he strips the cable, exposing the wires inside. We bring the cable over to some decking in the garden, and set it down so that the exposed wires are facing towards the sky. He says "you're going to want to film this", so I rush inside to grab any camera I can find. I also set up the video recorder on my phone, and he produces a camcorder when I get back outside. I start recording, and step back slightly. He grabs a tennis racket and drops it onto the exposed wires. With a loud bang, the tennis racket shoots up into the air like a rocket, and then produces a little red parachute as it begins falling back down to earth!
The bang caused my gran to come outside and give us both a good telling off :facepalm:
