I believe the supposed "number 7565" may actually be a sound effect with poor kerning: "TSSS", the crackling of the electricity traveling down the line. Worth considering, I think. -- 04:12, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

It is "TSSS". Why a bolt of lightning would make the sound ”7565" is beyond me. But I've added a trivia section. Herobrine (talk) 12:26, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

I think that fuses rated to break a high voltage are actually full of sand. When the wire in the fuse heats up in a fault it melts the sand and makes a bead of glass around the wire. This insulates the wire and stops the electricity from just arcing through the gap in the wire. If you cut one of these fuses open after they blow, you will see a bunch of sand pour out with a bead of glass in the center. This may be what the text in the comic that says “fuse” is about.--A person with a computer of some kind (talk) 07:22, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
