"you see me over here with electric and you don't dare ask"

the law told my parents that they needed to remove a power line that went from their house to the patio on the backyard. they said they'd be back in a few days and would fine my dad if it wasn't done. my dad decided to remove the wire with an old pair of all metal wire cutters during a lull in a pretty nasty lightning storm. to his credit he did turn off the circuit breaker, although he wasn't entirely sure that it was the correct one. i decided to record him in the event that he did get electrocuted. it would be a waste of a perfectly good electrocution if others weren't able to enjoy it afterward. i'm not saying i want the old man to die... just take a bit of a zap.
the best part is what my grandma is saying to him the whole time.
