Big Data Cultivation - Chapter 19
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Feng Jun had a very clear understanding of his own plan.
He couldn’t rely on good luck to make a fortune.
Smuggling was the best way for him now, but he hadn’t figured out a good way to charge himself without causing any damage.
He probably had to collect a large number of magical stones in the space which seemed to be a Xianxia world, which might be his best choice. Magical stones were quite effective in charging.
If he could find a way to learn cultivation techniques, it would be for the best.
Anyway, all the above was his guess. Feng Jun wanted to enter the strange space to take another adventure to see whether he could find a gold mine.
He wasn’t sure how much danger was hidden in that space, so he must be well-prepared.
This time, he needed to buy more than just clothing, food, and other things for him to survive in a wild place. He must have something for self-defense. Although he couldn’t buy weapons with great lethality, he better had the ability to protect himself.
Feng Jun shopped for a long time on Taotao. He had bought a Kukri before, so it wasn’t strange to him, but he wasn’t adept at it as a graduate of arts.
He chose several online stores and talked with their owners, then bought lifelines.
Actually, he bought more than just lifelines. Although he needed them, he bought some supplies that were not on display in the name of buying life-saving ropes.
For example, a powerful crossbow or a Kukri for an actual fight would never be shown on the shelves. He could only have a private chat with the store owner and buy them in the name of buying other things.
Although Feng Jun didn’t know much about survival equipment, he knew that good things cost much. While he enjoyed shopping online, he spent nearly ten thousand yuan without himself realizing it.
This speed of spending money was really terrifying. At this moment, he deeply felt why the hand-chopping buyers were called “hand-chopping”. In fact, even he himself wanted to chop his hands to stop himself from spending so much money.
Besides, what he bought might not be genuine, and could only be not fake.
Anyway, Feng Jun didn’t regret it. Safety was the most important thing in his eyes, and he wouldn’t hesitate to spend a lot of money to protect himself well. If he lost his life, he wouldn’t be able to enjoy the adventure no matter how exciting it was.
When he closed the page of Taotao, it was already 4 pm, so he stood up and walked outside.
The old man was yelling at the door, asking all the people who secretly connected his wires to take the initiative to withdraw them; otherwise, he would cut the wires himself.
Some people who stole the electricity had bribed him, but a guy had made his light dimmed twice today. He failed to catch the person, and even nobody listened to his threat.
He was very unhappy about it, and must do something to stop it from happening again. The old man was a villager in Xiaowu Village. Although he was a little greedy, he wouldn’t care about his past good relationship with other people once he got angry. He wasn’t a man who had a sense of the overall situation.
In his eyes, he only had asked for cigarettes and drinks when they stole the public electricity in the old days, and they didn’t pay much for it. He only wanted them to stop doing that right now, and they should feel grateful.
Feng Jun was in no mood to listen to the old man shouting, so he rode a shared bicycle and went to buy more fuses and chargers.
On the road, he couldn’t help but complain that it indeed cost much money to do scientific research.
On the day Feng Jun was fired, he kept on buying stuff, and time flew fast when he was busy dealing with his own things.
It was already 6:30 pm when he rode back to his rented room with several bags.
It started to rain halfway.
The rain this time wasn’t as heavy as the one last time, but the raindrops weren’t small and were quite dense.
He didn’t bring an umbrella with him because he was a man and didn’t care about that, and he had to ride in the rain now.
The chargers and fuses he bought shouldn’t be exposed to rain, so he stopped at once and carefully wrapped them with two layers of plastic bags.
This was his life as a poor young man in a big city. He could be in the rain, but the goods couldn’t.
When he finally arrived where he lived, the denim clothes on her body had been soaked and water dripped along the hem.
At the factory, the old man called an electrician and cut along the mainline after pulling the switch off, but it started to rain halfway, so they had to stop.
When Feng Jun came back, the switch in the factory was just pulled on. Seeing him coming back wet, the old man said, “The wires in the factory are aging. Don’t use the electric stove to dry your clothes. Change your clothes instead.”
Feng Jun nodded and went to change his clothes in his room, then he dined at the small restaurant by the gate. He ordered a big bowl of hot rice noodles, which was accompanied by five pancakes. He didn’t go back slowly until he was full.
The rain wasn’t very heavy, but the land in the factory was already a bit muddy. He walked on it and felt lucky that he had already leveled the ground roughly, otherwise he would have to change his clothes again when he walked inside.
As he walked to the door of his room, he stared at a wooden board in a daze.
He planned to use this wooden board to level the generator at the beginning because the generator would be shaking with a lot of noises once it started to work. Although the machine he bought was a famous brand, it was produced by an OEM factory. It lacked some shock absorbers and noise isolation, so it was noisier than the genuine one.
Therefore, he flattened such a wooden board on the ground outside the door, and it could absorb the force when the generator began to work.
Unfortunately, the wooden board was covered in water now. He originally planned to try to use the generator to charge at night after he had learned the basic rules by testing, but he didn’t expect to encounter such a situation.
What was worse, it was still rainy now, and the generator might cause accidents if it worked in weather like that.
As a result, he could only continue to use the public electricity. Luckily, it was a rainy night, and the old janitor hid in the house, drinking and chatting with the electrician from the village.
Feng Jun quietly put on a 10-amp fuse and picked up a charger. This time, he planned to hold the charger directly with his own hands instead of charging through the phone.
In his eyes, the voltage of the charger was very low. Even if he was shocked by the electricity, it shouldn’t be a big problem.
However, he didn’t notice there was rain in the charger in his hand.
The next second, he was heavily hit by the electricity, but luckily he didn’t scream out loud.
The old man was also affected. As soon as he raised his glass to drink, the light was off, and it was totally dark in his sight.
The electrician next to him laughed. “Ha-ha, it’s tripped.”
The old man was about to be mad, but gave it up when he heard the laughter. “Did you replace the main brake fuse with a thin one?”
“Yeah, isn’t it what you want?” The electrician smiled at him. “The fuse will melt once there is too much power. Whoever uses much electricity will suffer the pain.”
The old man wanted that effect because he used little electricity in his daily life. He even didn’t watch the TV often. As long as there were batteries in his radio and he could listen to shows as usual, he would be satisfied.
He also had a mobile phone, a real old phone, with big buttons and loud voice. He would be fine even if it was out of power. He wasn’t a young man who couldn’t live without a smartphone.
Therefore, the old man lit a candle afterward, but he stopped the electrician from lighting the other one. “What? Are you worried about pouring the drink into your nose?”
“You are so mean!” The electrician laughed at him. “It’s more convenient to eat with two candles.”
The old man rolled his eyes. “I would rather replace the fuse than light two candles.”
Actually, he wasn’t used to living a life without electricity, but he insisted on not changing the fuse upon thinking that others might live a harder life than him at this moment.
When they were chatting casually, they heard noises from the building in the factory.
The electrician couldn’t be more familiar with the noises and he cocked his eyebrow. “Does the graduate have a generator?”
“Yeah.” The old man nodded. “He needs to do phone tests, and he can’t be short of electricity.”
The electrician shook his head and didn’t think it was important. “Why couldn’t he wait for a while?”
Feng Jun absolutely couldn’t wait, and he was happier than ever now.
The moment the charger was plugged into the socket after rain entered it, an electric arc was released, and his left hand was electrocuted.
Feng Jun didn’t realize that he was just electrocuted by 220 volts until the electric power was tripped off.
This wasn’t the first time that he had been electrocuted. It had happened once when he was a kid, and it was an accident because he was too naughty back then. It didn’t cause a serious result, but he could never forget the feeling.
However, he didn’t have strong feelings this time.
Feng Jun thought about it for a long time, and finally he was sure that he did not wrap the charger tightly, which caused the rain to enter. This major negligence brought him a different experience, and it was a surprise in his eyes.
For a long time, Feng Jun had the idea of directly charging himself with the city electricity, but the accident that happened in his childhood gave him a deep and bad memory. It also left him the psychological shadow.
He always wanted to charge himself without a phone, but he didn’t dare to do that until now, which happened by accident.
However, he felt that 220 volts weren’t so scary this time.
Although it sounded scary, it didn’t cause any injuries. He was still fine even when the main switch was off.
Since he could directly charge himself with the city electricity and it didn’t feel bad, Feng Jun decided to do some new tests.
He turned on the generator again in his room.
When the generator was running stably, he took two more wires, stripped the insulation on both ends, and carefully inserted them into the two holes of a socket.
This socket was connected to the output terminal of the generator, and there was a 100-amp protection switch in the middle.
One end of the two pieces of wire was inserted into the socket, while the other end was exposed to the light. At the top was a bright copper core, which was silently telling the danger.
Nevertheless, it was a pure temptation in Feng Jun’s eyes now.
