    We need new, sustainable ways to electrocute ourselves with solar and wind power.

    I find it interesting that while most are directed as warnings to humans, some are warnings for animals who may happen to be reading the book and one is actually an instruction on how to create for a lethal prank.

    I suspect that a lot of these hazards haven’t really existed since the days of knob-and-tube wiring, particularly the plenitude of ungrounded appliances in bathrooms, and high-voltage telephone circuits.
