I once saw a transformer blow up right near me in my car. Almost made me boost in my pants. Also seen power lines drop down and catch trees and bushes on fire looked kinda cool from a distance.

I don't know if I would be playing with that green and blue stuff. If that stuff is the result of a transformer going it could be dangerous for your health.

Not radio active, they aren't nuclear. There are just certain chemicals and substances in large transformers which are toxic.

Got to watch a substation burn and explode last year in Indiana. Thing took a lightning hit while I was about half a mile away under a bridge. I'd stopped for heavy rain.
Monster big flash, deafening bang, and then this sizzling noise and a hell of a light show. It finally blew one of the transformers with a pretty good fireball.
