  • Adapter

    Went to plug in an extension cord at the neighbors cabin and discovered I needed an adapter (old cabin with non-grounding plugs) He handed me this (see pic). Notice anything strange?

    Looks like it might have a ground prong broken off inside it.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
