I have often wondered about whether or not 3 phase Electric Fields would cancel out. Appears not to be the case.

Depending on soil characteristics, it isn't unusual to run local single phase high voltage distribution (4.8KV & 12.4KV, etc) with only one wire & using the earth for the neutral/return. Looks a bit strange to see only one wire at the top of the power pole.

Take a couple of fluorescent bulbs and walk under a high voltage power line and watch them glow, then put one end in the ground and watch them really light up. Get really brave and walk barefoot under the line and see your hair stand straight up Things my brother and I did when we were young and dumb. [emoticon]
