    he should try to patent it. make it like a toilet paper roll or some way, or even with the arms that hold the ladder. many cable companies would use it and electricians

    As an electrician studying IT, it feels good to see linus on the other side of things, where usually he says things I dont get, now hes hearing a bunch of things that are as basic knowledge to me as need water to survive

    In a more recent episode, when they attempt to hang a new projector and screen, they bitch about the trunk line being romex stapled to the studs inside the wall. That happened in this video, and it's the right way to do it.
    PS, somebody tell Linus about fish tape and glow rods. Running wire in a warehouse should be the easiest thing in the world, even after you put up walls.

    You're not serious. It's how you check the ethernet connection. No network protocol... Ahlala

  • Tony Crabb

    Surprised that trunking wasn't used for the electrical and networking. As that would have meant a tidier installation and no cross talk between the network and power.

    That is definitely why you don't leave shit on top of a latter. My uncle left a hammer similar to Linus's a top a latter similar in height to the orange latter. I moved the latter and split my skull open. I was 13 good times.

    Are you aware how popular this channel is in Scandinavia and are you also aware that we celebrate Christmas on the 24th? Posting this video on Christmas Eve might have been a mistake.
