Yesterday was a 'black' day for the train traffic in Denmark.
Three places around Copenhagen the train traffic was brought to a grind when the power lines which supplies the trains with electricity fell down within a few hours of each other.
But the most funny excuse that DSB(national train company) could come with was this.
A 'wet' pidgeon had been sitting on the power line as do so many birds since the dawn of power cables. And when the train passed by the power line was lifted up so the pidgeon touched some uninsulated metal on the power line mast.
Thereby the pidgeon became grounded and became a biological plasma torch when it burned through the power line causing it to fall down and pierce the windscreen of the locomotive.
Quite the shocker for the driver of the locomotive, i'd say.
So if all of you wannabe terrorists out there are wondering how to hurt a country. Here is my suggestion.
Train lots of pidgeons to sit on power lines by railroad track. Especially near uninsulated metal parts on the power line masts.
