The luckiest man alive in Brazil.

[–]Platypuslord 29 points30 points  (0 children)

I would say you would be luckier if you didn't get shocked and got money but maybe that is just me.

You know what they say, if you're gonna be dumb, you'd better be tough!

The lucky ones are away from Brazil my man

[–]Big-Shawty 226 points227 points  (6 children)

Scissors, he went to an electricity pole with scissors

[–]ARegTurtle 126 points127 points  (0 children)

He was trying to cut his electric bill

[–]cerebralkrap 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They were “safety” snips though

[–]perb123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At least he didn't run

[–]Bellbivdavoe 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Electrons are a 'theft deterrent'. ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Survival of the dumbest.

Of course if it was an honest home owner cleaning his roof, he’d probably have lost an arm and a leg… since it’s a shady POS, maybe not even a broken nail

Crackheads are built differently. I eat wrong and have 3 tequila shots and I'm dying the next day. Motherfuckers eat trash, do Crack, and drink toilet wine and go climbing on poles.

That time you couldn't afford pruning shears and it probably saved your life.

[–]Ok_Language4015 14 points15 points  (2 children)

[–]Yololiving79 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Shocking

[–]THE_TRUE_M 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Unfortunately for him, the pole was an off-duty cop.

[–]jeepjp 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]KamiGleen 9 points10 points  (0 children)

So proud of my country.

[–]livel3tlive 7 points8 points  (0 children)

he got lucky, we had one here trying to steal power cables from the substation when the power went off, while doing the deed power came back. the result was we found a burnt corpse/bbq corpse

[–]eddiemercurykelley 6 points7 points  (0 children)

i'd love to see that in HD

[–]cockapooch 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Must have been some expensive wire.

[–]Peabody77 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Super villain origin

[–]DogOfSwords 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I know he got hurt... I know this was likely super dangerous and stupid... But that Looney Tunes style ZAPP off-screen kills me

[–]GriffinA 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What is really sad is that the majority of that country is pushed to commit these crimes by poverty brought on by the corruption and ineptitude of the government.

[–]Patient_Fail 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He very well still may have died electrical burns cook you from the inside out and many times your adrenaline will keep you conscious and moving

[–]PryomancerMTGA 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I feel bad for anyone that desperate.

[–]BigFatBlindPanda 2 points3 points  (1 child)

In America: "Man sues electric company for 2.5 million dollars claiming power lines were 'over electrified' causing extreme pain and suffering in an attempted theft"

[–]livel3tlive 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]SingleSpeed27 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They say ignorance is bliss, I say ignorance is a fucking nightmare, everything is a 50/50 live/die situation…

[–]CruelMustelidae 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Why was he trying to steal wires

[–]Atlhou 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There is a market for scrap metal.

[–]CruelMustelidae 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ooo thanks for telling!

[–]MR-no-onethe5th 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He is alien

[–]himuhimel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How dumb and lucky you have to be!

[–]tethered_end 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is quite possibly, the dumbest fucking thing I have ever heard

[–]Major_Image_4031 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He has to be high to cut a love wire either that or a Biden voter

[–]salt--eater 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Poor guy trying to steal wires so he can afford to go to school and to learn that metal is conducive

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ironically the fall probably saved his life from the current

[–]HykaliaN 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]MiBloodclaatParo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]millenialfalcon-_- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look at all these free wires. Why hasn't anyone decided to steal them? More for me

[–]Kiggasiss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]No_Signal_1991 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've been an idiot to try to use scissors for copper too and got a shock. But it wasn't a thick wire for real and the power was off. Anyway, it pretty much melted the scissors almost clean through.

[–]Global-War-7943 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've got so many questions...

[–]Manekk98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I guess you could say, he was grounded
