That actually is not supposed to happen. They were testing the breaker system for a substation. The one in the back broke like it should have but the one in the front did not. If that substation was online and that happened during a failure it would have fried every home and business that was on that grid. Either was it is still cool as hell and a good demonstration of the power of electricity.

I saw something like that when lightning hit a power station down the road, but it didn`t last nearly as long, and it had a weird green color.

Ok dont wont to be the know it all a-s-s-h-o-l-e but it was a power company doing a test on the circuit breaker. Thats why its on camera. They`d been having problems like that before so they did this.

The freakiest part of it i think is the complete lack of any end to it.. It simply instantly disappears. ZZZZTZTZTZTZZZTZZZZZZZZZ > silence.

^^Okay, Jimbo, first off there`s this super-big exercise wheel and they put a hamster in there. He has to run really fast. Now, when he does that, for reasons only known to the hamster god, Retsham, electric sparks come out of the hamster`s ass. A brave guy with an electric engineering degree who double majored in animalology goes in with a coupla wires and puts one on the hamster`s balls and the other up his own ass. This makes electricity. See, simple. :-)

"Ouch! That would likely hurt if you touched it--just a for a little bit, though. "

Urm, yeah, it would, before you died.
My dad almost died from a mains electric shock.
This is more powerful than maines.
