Saudi Boys Use Live Power Cables as Swing
Emirates 24/7 ^ | Thursday, May 15, 2014

Posted on 05/15/2014 10:52:20 AM PDT by nickcarraway

In a small town in Saudi Arabia, local boys found an innovate way to kill boredom by severing live power cables and using them as swings, not realizing it could be a fatal game. They just do this for fun although they know this would result in power cuts to several parts of the area.

A U-Tube film published in Sabq daily showed the boys jumping on the swing surrounded by the main power pylons that feed a large area near the Western Saudi town of Medina.

“It is a deadly game…they don’t realize they could be committing a suicide,” the paper said, quoting an official at the electricity company in Medina.

Sad when a young boy dies of a stupid act, before he can grow up to be a suicide bomber.

I think it's a pretty sure bet that their membership has been revoked.

Should be OK, as long as they aren’t touching the ground at the same time... :)

Saudi Arabia seems to be a nation of the terminally bored.

Wow. That is terminally insane!

To be fair, I’d go nuts eventually if trapped in the desert and not allowed to drink a beer.

This is shocking. I’m sure they really got a charge of doing that.

Google “Why God Gave Them Camels.”

Funny video.
