Gut Rumbles

One reason I visit his site every day is because Eric finds off-the-wall-stuff to blog about.

I'm just trying to get the facts of this "case" straight in my mind. A woman was skateboarding down a hot street, she fell off her skateboard and landed on a sizzling-hot manhole cover. She was "branded" by the hot manhole cover.

Hmmm.... I know some wimmen who pay good money to have that crap done to them. I think Con-Ed should counter-sue for AT LEAST local tattoo rates.

The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan's state Supreme Court, accused Con Ed of "negligence, carelessness, recklessness and culpable conduct" related to Wallenberg's injuries.

Hmmm... let me sort through THIS information, too....

Okay, I've decided. The woman never saw a manhole cover before, she has NO thermostat to let her know that the street is hot and the dingbat was riding a skateboard instad of flying around on her broom, the way that bitchin' witch usually does. She's also clumsy enough to FALL DOWN, which isn't HER fault.

Yep. Con-Ed is guilty as hell in this case.


.. every day.. and in every way... the World is getting stranger and stranger...

I read about this on the Daily Pundit and came to the same conclusion.

Rob, you sure attract some sick mo-fo's, don't you?

I'd love to play with the IP address on THAT one!

I would ban her from ever riding on a skateboard, and give her a restraining warrant to stay 10 feet away from all manhole covers.

For the sake of her safety, of course.

She's 27 years old and she was riding her skateboard after midnight?! Any odds-takers for my bet that she's a hairy-pitted filthy hippie lesbian and that she was skating under the influence?

Just watch. ConEd will remedy the hot manhole cover issue, then the fuggin' bums will sue them because they won't have heat in the winter time. This is a lose-lose proposition.

woops. Con Ed. [Isn't there a ComEd somewhere?]

How the fuck can a "hot" manhole cover brand you after midnight? What, they flew it in FedEx from Death Valley an hour earlier? Oh, I know... some idiot installed a steam pipe, with an open end, pointing directly at the manhole cover and let 'er rip. 'Course, that's not really a "manhole" in that case. We usually call that a "vegetable steamer" and keep it in the kitchen. Must be a government thing, underground cooking facitlities. Maybe in case of aliens landing.
Dementia is not limited to the elderly, apparently. And no need for an opinion about the lawyer, because we already know what that Edwards clone is about.

This was not a manhole cover to a sewer or water line. This was covering one of the thousands of electrical junction running just under the streets in NYC. This manhole cover was hot because the power cables located underneath the cover had been shorted out. The constant motion of the cover against the jacket of the power cables had created a short circuit. This caused the metal cover to get rather "warm" and thus when Susie Rottencrotch fell on the cover, instant tatoo.

These covers routinely electricute people, dogs, and the occasional carriage horse also. Working in the power cable business leads to some very odd stories.

The cover was over a STEAM PIPE. OF course it would be hot even at that hour. My sympathies to her, its tough going through life being an idiot. put me on the jury, she will get the cost of a tube of salve, and con ed will get their attorney fees paid.
