What would make this really funny is if the recpt in the first photo was being fed by the cord.?

Horrible. Even on my worst 'I need power here now' day I wouldn't do this.

How do you know it doesn't?.
Power might go into the recept through the bottom plug and come out through the top socket.
But boy, would you have to be really messed up to do it like that.
Permanently installed suicide cord. [Linked Image]

In the first pic, the cord powers a light in a stairway. The second pic is a 240v line coming from the panel, on the left.

Whoever used the extra-deep plaster ring as a box must really wonder what devices fit into the shallower ones!
