and Doc, as for flipping a telephone pole..that's already sort of done during any good Highland games. I believe it's called the caber toss..fairly close to size of a tele pole, but they have to flip it for accuracy and have it land between 11 and 1, nearly perfectly straight...

Caber toss - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Doc, you'd probably be pretty good at the local Highland games man....you should check them out. Of course, you'd have to try the Haggis man...everyone loves friggen Haggis, with the lights of course...
I know the event you're speaking of, those poles get upward of 600lb, a solid telephone pole weighs over 1000.

EDIT: a 90' pole weighs over 7800lb.
