A cabling clusterfuck

If you’ve seen the movie Burn After Reading, you’ll undoubtedly remember when one of the characters, totally exasperated by the utterly confusing mess that has built up over the course of the movie, simply states, ”What a clusterfuck.”

We stumbled across this picture the other day, suitably named just that: Clusterfuck.

This is apparently a mess consisting of motor cable, socapex and data cable that got twisted together by accident. Good luck fixing that mess…

“Where the #&%& do I start………….?”

Thankfully we’ve never had to deal with anything even close to that level of cable entanglement over here at Pingdom. That’s not anyone’s idea of fun, unless you’re obsessed by puzzles.

Electrical cables may be made more flexible by stranding the wires. In this process, smaller individual wires are twisted or braided together to produce larger wires that are more flexible than solid wires of similar size.

Oh my! If I were the one who will fix that. I think I'm going to have a headache with those cables.


Welcome to the world of roadies! I deal with this everyday :)
