And you thought your computer cables were in knots? Ha! Check out this internet spiderweb in Wuhan, China.

Recently, photos of an area with one helluva tangled cable mess appeared on numerous Chinese news sites. According to reports, the cables are for the internet (though, I'd imagine there are some power and telephone lines in there too).

Apparently, the renters are procuring their own connections. So, more renters crammed in numerous one-room apartments means more lines out the window. This is a low-rent district, so don't think the nice parts of town look like this.

As news site Jinghua notes, some residents joke that if someone fell from the roof, the web of cables would catch their fall.

      Nah, throw a line with a laptop attached out to the boat and let them use it. Once they see how much slower our internet is they'll turn right around.
