A "buttload" is an actual measurement, next time someone tells you that they need a buttload of something, tell them 126 gallons might be a bit too much.

Yeah those US plugs look really flimsy, our plugs are cylindrical so bending them doesn't happen easily.
Australian plugs are not as sturdy as UK ones which 1) are rated to 13A* rather than the 10A standard here and 2) use the earth (ground) pin to engage mechanically with a cam that pushes open a protective shutter over the live and neutral. This is what Aussie plugs and sockets (receptacles) look like:


*There is an urban legend that 13A is the standard in the UK to allow electric kettles powerful enough to boil enough water for a pot of tea within the time taken for a commercial break on TV.

Imgur is only able to host files like these because they reformat them into videos... but the direct links are still the giant gif files.

Who decided gifs were the best way to share short video?

...are bending plugs a real problem?
I suppose it's a matter of perspective, I'd say clenching too much is the real problem here.

Peristalsis is a radially symmetrical contraction and relaxation of muscles that propagate in a wave down a tube, in an anterograde direction.

AKA bowel movement, or also how earthworms move.

Those look much better than the grounded 3-prong ones we use in America.

They always look like they're in distress.

Or saw something that shocked them...

From http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-32144005

Quote
10. A US entrepreneur has pledged to rid China of "farcical" western names such as Lady Gaga, Elvis and Washing Liquid. Chinese people commonly take a "yingwen ming" or "English name" to help Anglophone employers address them. But often these result in them being "laughed at behind their backs" when they choose such monikers as Furry, Twinkle, Pussy or Volcano, says businesswoman Lindsay Jernigan, who has launched a website to help Mandarin speakers adopt more suitable titles.

This person needs to be stopped. Right now. I can only imagine how awesome my life would have been if my parents had called me Volcano.

         "TAX not the royal Saint with vain expense,
          With ill-matched aims the Architect who planned--
          Albeit labouring for a scanty band
          Of white robed Scholars only--this immense
          And glorious Work of fine intelligence!
          Give all thou canst; high Heaven rejects the lore
          Of nicely-calculated less or more;
          So deemed the man who fashioned for the sense
          These lofty pillars, spread that branching roof
          Self-poised, and scooped into ten thousand cells,
          Where light and shade repose, where music dwells
          Lingering--and wandering on as loth to die;
          Like thoughts whose very sweetness yieldeth proof
          That they were born for immortality."

So I remember seeing this about a year or so ago and it really spoke to me.  It made me want to write my own G-man/MiB type story.


So last night I was struck by some inspiration and couldn't sleep.  I stayed up for a couple of hours and finally put pencil to paper and wrote a very rough draft of an interrogation scene with a witness.  The idea was to make it the prologue.  I may comb through it and smooth it out today.
