More Crazy Wiring


As though life is not complex enough...

Thanks to your active contribution, we have another set of simply outrageous wiring jobs (read the whole series here). Almost everyone at some point had to unravel one tangled mess, or the other. Observe these pictures and be glad that this time it's not your job to straighten them out.

Electric (not quite industrial) Light... and Magic -

The wiring shown below belongs to the vintage Russian telephone switch systems (a small population of rats loves it!) -

Intricate wiring job inside the electronics bay of a Boeing 757 airplane. It's a small space underneath the forward passenger floor; only part is shown - there are a few kilometers of wiring inside the plane. (Photo courtesy of Andy Rottiers) -

Kyle R. Brunick sent us his own little nightmare that he had to unravel:

Completely ad-hoc and incomprehensible pipe plumbing system:

To offset the previous photo, here is VERY organized pipe set:

Some wiring requires good "hairstyle", and the advertisers make smart use of this fact:

Keep sending us spectacularly bad wiring... it makes boring office job so much more exciting.

Makes the back of my TV look tame. Thanks for saving me a Saturday of detangling. I think I'll let it go...for a little while anyway.

These pictures make the OCD in me cringe.

I actually took the second pic - the green and yellow wires connecting two cabinets.

The pic was taken sometime around 2001 and shows the connections between two floors in the building where I worked, very surprised to see it on the blog as I only emailed it to a few people years ago :D

another view, from the side: http://pics.spiny.co.uk/dialers/cables.jpg

cheers, Phil.

I bet that the electric authority's employees in China have to walk around with a ladder in order to reach the counters in every building. They have to climb at least 3 meters on the wall!
