Lesson #373 - Warnings

Normally, these signs do not have any image of a man, or at least have the standard circle-with-a-dash-through-it way of representing 'BAD IDEA'. But every now and then you find a high voltage sign with an image of a man like this, which looks every more superheroic when the stray wire just beyond his hand has worn away from rain or vandalism.

Seriously, firing lightning/energy bolts may be a boring and overly common superpower, but it's still a superpower. It's almost like the electric companies added the man to get people to weigh the odds. "Well, jumping the fence would kill me . . . but on the other hand, I'd have the potential to have an amazing costume!"
