Welcome to IWETHEY!

New I'd climb a radio mast
Would also take a shot at being a high-tension lineman. Or painting the Golden Gate Bridge. (The cables, not down inside the caissons.)

New ya, well when it is lit up you better have tin foil over your private parts
"Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts" – Richard Feynman
New I roomed with a cell tower repair guy
In rehab.

The guy would climb to the top, strap in, shoot up, and nod out.
New Smart. Not much chance of being caught sleeping on the job.
Was he smart enough to do the work first?

New This may be self-adjusting;
do the Work stoned and.. well, you know.. Hi-voltage RF is not your friend.

I know one tale (not apocryphal, still.. first-degree hearsay)
An actual-EE® opens a panel wherein lay conductors carrying ~20 KV (at center of enclosure.)
Spots a piece of debris near open panel and at the outer wall, decides that the 'wall' is far enough away and reaches in--inches-away--to grab it.
mSec later: sayonara. And this.. not-stoned.

HV has some unUsual tendencies in path choices; math explains but the reptile-brain is like Trump's main one. La-La-La will Getcha if you live there.

When I visited C.E.R.N. (Euro-accelerators) in early '60s, you could walk through the 'ignitron-switchyard' for the hi-current HV to main field, the presumptions being:
A) You *are* smart enough to move accordingly ..which carried the corollary,
B) Surely you won't! er, trip, slip/whatever.

Probability: the religion of Science? moi/coward; moi still here, not sniveling.
New Speaking of unUsual tendencies
My father claims to have witnessed ball lightning coming off an electrical panel he was working on in Labrador while in the Air Force in the 60s.

New Dunno
Heavily tattood crazy fucker. But really nice.

When I was in rehab I started writing a script for a sitcom. Standing cast of counselors and administrators. Revolving cast of patients. Then I realized I could never write the script, I was merely recording the insanity I was experiencing, and if it was to be ongoing I'd have to live there forever. Then I abandoned the project.
