    They can do that to themselves without anyone's for all I know. Any internet they have has to come from China.

    You mean like stuxnet? Possible but highly improbable. I don't think the US would be foolish or even insane enough to do something like that to China because it would be easily identifiable. We also need to know how connected and automated the systems are in these warehouses for something like this to be even possible.
    My guess would be IF it is indeed sabotage it would be done 'manually' not via some cyber attack.
    It would also constitute an act of war. Sabotage is one thing but sabotage that causes massive loss of lives to the civilian population bring it up 10 notches.

    Maybe is the broswer you are using that's the problem if you are using IE, I had the same problem with IE but not Firefox. It's probably have something to do with the setting of the broswer that I didn't bother to find out and change. I just use Firefox instead when uploading muti images to imgur.com.

    I'll tell you if you're dealing with branches that bend, it'll be a little more difficult holding it steady in the one place you want to cut. Otherwise expect a little pain in your arms from holding one end of an imbalanced pole. With a regular chainsaw you have some leverage to work with. Not as easy with a pole. Wear goggles because sawdust is going to be falling on top of you. And don't forget the chain oil.

    How much extension do you need and how thick are the branches? I use a 5-6 metere length of bamboo with a hand saw used for trimming tree branches tapped to it , more than does the job. I have taken the tops off dozens of pine trees as well as branches using this method.If you cant get a long enough length of bamboo, then aluminium tubing or electrical conduit might do the job.. It cost me under $10 in materials for saw and tape.

    He mentioned electric chained saw. It would be very dangerous to extend it.
