The vacation time of year...and I am always on the look out for code violations! These pictures were taken at a highway rest stop in Colorado.

Thanks for sharing with us. I like to carry the camera too. It sure gets some strange looks when I start aiming it at things like this while everyone else is pointing at the scenery!

A hydro powered light? A fuel cell biproduct (H2O) drain? How does it work?

The pipe is to keep the Ohms contained as they pour out. LOL! Saw this at a car wash. The "Tech" that did such a job told the owner it was better because it was "designed for water and therefore is water resistant."
Just imagine, they let these people drive motor vehicles!?!?
