    I cut through the lead of a circular saw.

    Total non event.

    Didn't spark.

    Didn't trip the trip.

    I only found out when I picked the fecking thing up to cut another piece of wood.

    Must have cut through the wire exactly at zero volts.

    Even the fuse in the plug was ok.

    I once ran the lawnmower over its own cable. A bit of a bang. Reconnected the wires (proper electrical tape then securely wrapped in gaffa tape) and it was fine although the part where it plugged into the mower wasn't all that great afterwards.

    I know it's Monday morning and you're probably hungover and depressed, but this is particularly poor attempt. Purpose != Capability. If I plug a hedge-trimmer into my extension lead, that's what it powers.

    I thought it was about a massive bet on GBP/USD pair, also known as cable.

    Well thankfully it's not a thread boasting about your latest trip to the toilet.

    started a topic Laying a massive cable

    Laying a massive cable

    Electricity cable that is. The world's longest under-sea electricity cable, transferring green power between Norway and the UK, has begun operation.

    Pretty neat. from a brief read it sounds to be basically a load balancer.

Working...
