I wish people would stop saying the phrase "for real".

The house must have been previously owned by a retired schizophrenic plumber, who tried to be an electrician in between the double doses psychotropic drugs, while slipping in and out of consciousness. :(

Ok, as long as the splices are well done and well isolated with pvc tape it's nothing to worry about.But running a "power-line"(110-220VAC) along the fence it's just stupid and dangerous, it should be at least put in a protecting plastic tube or something.This i call a "fast job",it will do the trick but please when you do something do it right, especially when electricity is involved!

The low current draw of a 1/3 hp motor for a short duration (while the door is going up or down) is on the short list of reasons I can think of for why the house hasn't burned down.
I don't understand the psychological reasons why it is this way, but #2, you may be on to something...

I completely agree with #3. By the way, Ash-BG, I think this blog will put a wide smile on your face:

I kinda expected it to either go next door or to a lamppost on the pavement. :(

#3, #8: I guess you're used to deadly wiring in your country?

In Western Europe, Nordics, US etc. connections like that are illegal for a good reason.

I'm from Romania, and everyone has some sort of improvisation like this, nothing unusual, in the city or countryside it's the same. God bless electrical tape and wires :)) with those two, anything is possible

Maybe It's the other way around. When the guy presses the garage activator the light goes on and his wife sends away the milkman because:"Damm my husband home! Quick you have to leave."
