    Stranded man cut down power poles to get rescued

    Smart guy, and ballsy; I don't think I'd have had the guts to cut down power poles, and with an axe no less.

    Wow, way to go for him!
    Worry looks around, guilt looks back, fear hides it's eyes, but faith and hope hold hands and look up!

    Do you call a fly without wings a "walk"?

    Glad he survived, BUT... having said that, in most situations he would be stupid to cut down power poles! Not only does he face death by electrocution, he is also liable to get sued by the utility companies if he is caught!!! My husband works for the phone company and he's had to work through the night to find crews in the middle of the night 1a.m. & 5a.m. to replace the ones idiots have knocked down!!!
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    True, but this wasn't sheer stupidity on the man's part. I think the companies would be willing to forgive a stranded man who might otherwise have possibly ended up a UID or missing.
