Subterranean

Beneath the main admin building of the school is a colossal, labyrinthine cellar.

This is good in some ways, because it means a lot of ground floor wiring jobs can be run through the cellar, avoiding drilling through lots of walls in a showcase building. However, I still don’t like going down there, for two reasons:

  1. Monstrous spiders.
  2. Hideously monstrous cabling:

I spotted this running along the top of one wall earlier in the week. I’m pretty sure it’s actually not part of the Ethernet infrastructure, and is instead part of the telephone system cabling, which I thankfully have nothing to do with.

I’m also fairly sure one of the spiders did it.
