UK's Virgin Media celebrates the end of 2019 with a good, old fashioned TITSUP*


Re: Across, not down

I must confess I spent nearly a decade working for a "major" Cable Avoidance Tool supplier, so this article was always going to trigger my interest.

I recall some immensely powerful and sad gas line explosions, often in remote farmland locations striking gas/oil. Christ, I even recall some tale about an untrained builder trying to drill through a UK major airport fuel supply line... Only prevented because it was a thicker pipe than expected and it broke his drill.
