EP has turned about as backwards as this ridiculous fundie town I live in. Still trying to learn the ropes of this site but so far it is very accomodating to say the least. It is definitely nice to see a lot of familiar faces on here...plus a Richard Dawkins group where he gets the respect he so rightly deserves.
"The whole black-hot, white-common in AC wiring always struck me as being a bit odd, with my DC Red-hot, Black-common background, starting in high school. I suppose if you wanted to dig, you could find out."
Maybe, but it may also be buried in myth. All I can think of is the hole theory vs. electron flow conundrum. Electronics people use different language than Electricians. This may be tied to language and thought designed to make you think like an electronics type rather than a electrician type.
"Greets, yourself. One thing: just what happens when you take this red wire and this black wire and put 'em together...!" ZaPPP.,
Say, do you know why in AC the hot is black, and in DC the ground is black? I suppose it has something to do with hole theory, rather than electron flow.
I've seen a few electronics people connect AC power up with the black to ground causing circuit breaker trips and fuses to blow because of this confution.
technically, i have two cats, but my mom is taking care of one. she has grown to love her as a comfortable companion. in fact, she (the cat, not my mom, lol) had her two top canines removed yesterday. they were badly infected and i guess were ready to fall out on their own. my mom felt so horrible so not knowing and she spent so much time in pain. tara, the cat, is back at mom's and is doing very well. it's funny to see my mom indulge the cat with treats and brushings...she totally babies her. there's a photo of oreo, my cat on my page. i'll put tara up for you...big, black, fat, fluffy one...
Good Morning Loren!!! I hope all is well with you today. Still busy as a bee lately, and the Stunt Toddler decided to use a jumbo bottle of sunscreen to 'clean' his room today . . . all over the freaking place, better than the poop he used 2 days ago I guess. Anywho, have a good one!
I'd imagine it does. If you've ever been to Boston or Baton Rouge, you'd have to know that english is about as static as gasoline. ;)
You have some beautiful kitties Loren! They all look pretty fit and healthy, they must get plenty of play time.
Well we'll see. I'm never sure of when I'll have time to do anything. The only reason I'm able to be here now is because our little tater tot is snoozing in her chair beside me. Sometimes the wife unit has to work on Saturdays, so I get to spend the entire morning with her.
Troubleshooter! Good to see you outside of EP. Sometimes that site leads one to banging their head against a brick wall. It's refreshing to find a site filled with people who are, how can I put it delicately.... not complete retards.
