  • 25. In Alaska, during ice storms along the coastlines, there are major problems concerning removing ice from power lines • There are a lot of bears in Alaska; maybe we can use them somehow. • Yes, we could make them climb the poles, thus making the power lines vibrate, so that the ice will fall off. • …and if we place fresh meat on the top of each pole, this will attract bears, and make them climb the pole to get the meat. • Yes, and let’s bring the fresh meat in helicopters to the top of the poles. • Hey, what about we let helicopters hover over the power lines. Their hovering will vibrate the ice off the lines, thus solving the entire problem. • Then we need stockpiles of gasoline in the area for the helicopter. • Hey, what about pouring gasoline on the wire and burn the ice away? • Yes, or we could wrap heating elements around the wires to heat it off?
