    Right. We wire everything hot here, to save time finding the right
    breaker to shut off.

    Yeah but your wimpy little electricity doesn't even have enough Volts to
    hurt.
     
  4. At 440 kV, good luck getting close enough to the lines to do anything but
    fry.
     
  5. Well, we are judging Yanks by you, so . . . . .

    About 38p at the supermarket, I guess that makes 76 cents US these days.
     

  7. I've seen them, and I wouldn't use them. Somewhere, i have a box of
    new IEC power cords with one of the European AC plugs that are going to
    have the plugs cut off, and be hardwired to a workbench for test
    equipment.

  12. Big deal. Have you ever worked on a 195 KW TV transmitter, 14 KV
    power lines, or even 480 three phase?

    Compared to a US plug? Sure. BTW, one can buy outlets or switches
    at HomeDespot for $.39 in onesies.

    A duplex outlet or switch can often be found for $.39. Two pronged
    plugs are pennys.
     
  20. Some of which applies to their females as well, electrically speaking,
    of course.
