    Not on the electric companies' part, but everyone else. Fuckin morons will dig the god damn thing up. And not just private morons, town/county/state workers too! Don't think it's just electric cables either, phone/internet as well, I remember a thread from a reddit boad (tales from the help desk or something) posted by a telecom worker, where a huge region loses telecom because a work crew dug their backbone (Giant fucking mass of cables) right out of the ground while re-doing a sidewalk!

    This is why we can't have nice things billy.
    Don't you
    I don't know
    Have documentation of what is in the ground and why it should not be taken out?

    Because that is some serious negligence and likely to get people sued

      Assuming that proper procedure is followed, yes we do. There's a number, 811, that pretty much all areas have that directions are posted to call before digging. That service has the list of where lines and such things are buried...

      Then, it's up to the digging company/people to actually call and verify. I believe that there might actually be fines or some such if there's no call, but some idiots refuse to check, preferring to "get things done quickly" so that they can move on to the next project, assuming that they don't get pulled to do something else first.

        This^

        And that's why Stupidity is the answer to number 3. Why spend more money burying EVEN MORE stuff for idiots to dig up?

          Can confirm this, when digging out our water line to repair a leak (which at the start we really didn't NEED to dig it all the way to the back alley...) we wound up having to check lines, as the gas line also goes into the house from that area.

                In the 21st century, two criminal cases in Germany stood out above all else.

                In 2001, 9-year-old Peggy disappeared on her way home from school. The police quickly zoned in on a mentally handicapped man and got a confession from him - however, it turned out they coerced and pushed him into making a false confession so one of the higher-ups could report a quick success for a nice career boost. Ever since then, barely a year went by without some form of development making waves in the news. However, Peggy's body wasn't found until earlier this year, confirming that she was indeed murdered.

                The National Socialistic Underground (NSU) was a right-wing extremist terror cell, consisting of two men and one woman. They weren't uncovered until 2011 and were subsequently linked to several murders and bombings, the targets of which were almost exclusively immigrants. They operated with the help of a tightly-knit support network of Germany's neo-nazi community, several of which were actually police informants that neglected to mention the cell's existance to their contacts.

                This Friday, DNA of one of the terrorists was found on a scrap of cloth from near Peggy's grave, linking two of Germany's biggest criminal cases.

                  I vaguely recall hearing this more often. This seems to be a theme with police informants.

                    More of a theme of authorities in germany(and elsewhere) seeing a bit worse on the right eye. Nothing new.
                    I wouldn't say they stand out above all else though, the talk of the day in germany is the new upcoming of small scale terror attacks, ever since taking immigrants in too carelessly.

                      Well sheeeeit son. All that's left now is for Trump to get on stage and say: "told you so."

                      https://youtu.be/hDc8PVCvfKs

                      and part one, since the second video assumes you watched the first:

                      https://youtu.be/5IuJGHuIkzY

                      The gist of it is: some guys decide to do something the mainstream media(it's more legacy media now, like newsprint) journalists haven't done in a while, some actual journalism. It turns out people working under the DNC or Clinton's donors are making use voter fraud to rig elections. That's not all! Allegedly, there are more videos to come. I can't wait to see what those are all about.

                        That Germany story tho... not good for my mood at all.

                          What did you expect then?

                          US voting machines are owned by a private party that has been funding Clinton.
                          And there is exactly zero oversight to prevent stuff like this.

                          Your elections are jokes, really. But I still follow them because the drama can get amusing.

                            Is it really a conspiracy if its well known and acknowledged? I've seen pro-hillary folks be like 'Yeah she lies and manipulates, buut.. hey, shes not trump, yey!'

                              Could be, easily, since masses knowing something might be part of the plan.
                              It's actually similar story to what happened in Ukraine, people there were to pick a murican puppet for president or one that had jail-time in the past.

                              Some choice huh?

                              So, they didn't want murican puppet even if they had to choose former convict, and so orange revolution happened cuz murica invested much cash into it's puppet and didn't want that investment go to waste.
