    Is this safe:

    I think you know the answer to this. It is answered with one word that only has two letters.

    I'm sure that the person "Don't want no Gub'ment tellin' me what do do in my own home".

    As long as it doesn't adversly affect someone else.

    Does he have pennies in the fuse boxes?

    Or, like the person I saw that had his dryer connected to the 100 Amp buss bar, before the main breaker, because he kept tripping the clothes dryer breaker. "How'd you do that" I asked. "I pulled the meter out of the socket and did it." he replied. You can't fix stupid.

    I got the 2010 Darwin Awards sent to me the other day. Maybe this person will qualify for 2011.
