Green electricity box/pillar in front of house

Hi guys

Whilst in Harrison yesterday, I noticed many of these mini green domes/pillars in front of every 4-6 houses.

What are they and are they safe for occupants (e.g. Do they emit dangerous levels of radiation or electromagnetic waves?)

I did a bit of research and understand they may be either a distribution link containing fuses or a transformer reducing power provided to nearby houses.

But I am not sure and would be interested to hear your views.

If you have a detailed description of what’s in them, that’ll be great!

Thanks

Shane

Reptoid nesting boxes. If you have one out the front of your house, I’d recommend leaving bacon outside it from time to time, so the hatchlings grow up thinking you are a friend.

They only want you to think that until they’re big enough…

i, for one, welcome our new reptoid overlords. and don’t visit gunghalin very often, so shan’t disturb their nesting sites.

I’m more concerned by the unnaturally green lawn surrounding the box. Looks almost radioactive. Is it real or fake turf? If the latter – it’s sad that these manufactured slivers of greenery pass for front lawns these days. Still I suppose its better than the weedy mess that LDA and other developers leave in new housing estates the days

Thanks for the replies, I’m learning so much. I thought those green boxes were storage containers for emergency tin foil supplies in case you’d left your hat inside.

They’re part of a government population control program. You’ve seen the ones in Harrison that are designed to sterilize the good citizens of the outer North.

They are definately mini transformers.

Canberra will be transformed when two races of robots–the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons (which are able to change into a variety of objects, including cars, trucks, planes and mini green domes/pillars)–make Earth their final battleground.

Thanks peeps.

Anyone know if they are simply fuse boxes connecting power lines or mini transformers? Thanks.

Why so curious? You’ll have the AFP knocking on your door..

Its a mind control transmitter, the fact that you noticed it means that its not working.

Take four red capsules. In 10 minutes, take two more. Help is on the way

Pretty sure they aren’t safe, and that’s how the Hulk got his powers. Doc Banner just walking through the streets and … boom! Hope that helps.

Unlike the older suburbs with overhead power lines, Gungahlin has underground power lines. These boxes are part of that infrastructure.

They are safe… well maybe not if they get hit just like any piece of electrical infrastructure.
You do realise the sun emits electromagnetic radiation and people still seem to have no issues going to the pool or beach.
