"anna tag your horror"
no i had to see this you do too
@anna you ignore the slight lingering scent of smoke and then a fuse blows
@anna imagine like, accidentally spilling the spice pack to ramen, or kool-aid powder, or just the general accumulation of dust, and that's why you die.
@anna i reckon the screws hitting each other would be less dangerous if ur circuit breaker is working as itd shut that abomination down
@toilet the circuit breaker is a screwdriver jammed between the ledes
@anna love a 30 ampere fuse
@anna but does it work?
@DMX i have no idea and no intentions of finding out
@anna ahhh a little electrocution never hurt anybody
@anna I do not see the problem here
@bryceyoungquist its not a yacht
@anna this is fine
@anna are those from an old lamp cord??
@burgin no idea lol
@anna I have to do electric safety testing for work but thankfully have not encountered anything like that (yet).
such practices are (usually) less common in 230V countries, also we have had Telefunken mains connectors on portable electronics for about half a century in Europe so there are usually spare leads around in many houses.
hopefully the circuit breaker would open or the loosely wrapped end of the cable melt before any serious fire occured started (in UK plug top fuse would open)
@vfrmedia yeah dont you have to like, make your own plugs in a lot of european countries?
@anna we had to until around the mid 1990s (in UK you were taught in high school how to wire a plug, get the colours right and select the plug top fuse), after that it became law that appliances were sold with the moulded plugs that are more common today.
About 1994 in UK, not sure about rest of EU/EEA (each country might still have local domestic laws) but nowadays you can end up with multiple leads being supplied (UK, Shucko or Europlug for smaller equipment)
In some countries the 230V supply was (originally) also derived from two phases like it is in the USA (although its increasingly one phase of a 230/400V three phase distribution); and we are taught that any conductor which is not obvious protective earth (earth ground) should be treated as live and carrying current..
@cobra2 dont worry about it thats just the electricity
Jesus anna tag your lewd pls
@Lumb theres no fire. yet.
@anna that's terrifying
Pictured: the genius of invention in action.
@anna This looks like a "Hold my beer" idea
@anna hey Anna what the actual fuck
@t1psyGnostalg1c someone found the most gamer way to find out if there's homestuck in the afterlife
@anna this is so concerning and terrifying
@t1psyGnostalg1c its one of the worst ideas ive ever seen
@anna i mean same tb
@t1psyGnostalg1c my dad always told me if you're gonna do stupid things, do them smartly
and thats why i cant respect this. at least wrap the screws in electrical tape ffs
@anna seriously thats just fuckign dangeroua
@anna I refuse to believe this is real.
( Yes, I know it's real.)
@anna I now can't rest until I know whether this works
@SanfordianPhil please dont die
@anna hell yeah i love banana plugs!
@anna this made me shiver
God this image makes me so hornt idk why
God I wish that were me.
@Lumb a fire slimegirl that is always on fire
