Repairing High-Voltage Cables from a Helicopter is One Badass Job

You've gotta have serious balls to repair high-voltage cables from a helicopter while wearing a faraday cage suit. Not only are you dealing with heights, but tons of electricity as well.

His suit is 75% Nomex to prevent him from catching on fire and 25% stainless steel thread, which creates a faraday cage around him that pumps about a half a million volts around him at all times. The steel allows the electricity to flow around the outside of his suit, completing a circuit, but none of it touches him.

The best part of this video? The quote at the end: "There's only three things I've ever been afraid of: electricity, heights, and women. And I'm married." Kudos to you, my friend, for facing all three of your fears. [Neatorama]
