    Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience

      LOL we would have changed.. but we were too far ahead technically than the rest of the world... with high priced appliances like wash machines and electric stoves in our houses by the 50's and 60's. I guess it bit us in the ass.

          Well tbh a mandatory ground pin doesn't make that much sense for simple devices that don't have any metal casing the current might leak to. Legislation has changed also, i think newly built homes have grounded sockets everywhere (the house i live in only has a few of them: The washing machine, the central heating/geyser room and the kitchen, that's it). Devices get certain kinds of plugs based on their wattage and design. And not all plugs fit.

          Aren't UK plugs required to have fuses in each and every single one of them, too?

              That's because they only introduced electricity into Ireland in 1982.

                    Have you tried installing a second jack in your pants?

                        Forget the sofa, the outlet and the protecto-gizmo, it's your apartment that's incompatible, time to move! You might be even lucky enough to trash the sofa in the process, making life so much easier.

                          LOL thx.. my new house and my brand new sofa.. lets trash em all! We just need to invent appliances that work by inductance or super duper batteries that are the size of AAA but can power a refrigerator for 2 years.

                            The plugs? Indeedy. Not the wall sockets, but the plugs yes.
