So I ran across this cartoon on the web. It shows President Obama up on a pole, with headphones and a laptop with leads going up to wires above.
Now let me state – I know a thing or two on how to tap a phone. In the olden days you had to basically hook up to the line physically. Now you just tap it via the telephone switch – because those switches – they’re at the basic level computers.
But to the cartoon:
Now if you look closely – you’ll see he’s jacked into the 480V feed on the pole. Not a bloody good thing to do. I guess the cartoonist doesn’t know how to tell what the order of wires on the poles are. It usually goes 480V, 125V, Cable TV and then phone at the lowest level.
