Re: sort of reminds me

Then they showed a slide of a (real)huge fiber cut that had probably a dozen or more carriers in the same pipe, I want to say the pipe or conduit was 1 to 2 feet wide buried in the ground.

Was that of the Really Big Cut(tm) near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel? The one caused by a gentleman with a very big backhoe and a very small brain? If it was, then the conduit was 18" in diameter and was made of reinforced concrete. It was Class IV or V, I think. See http://www.ncp-inc.com/price1.html for how much the stuff costs per foot. There were lots and lots of signs saying don't dig here, but he knew better.
