So THAT'S what happened to my bowl of polychromatic spaghetti!!!!

Someone must have read the term "Box Fill" backwards!


No wire bias here- I'm standing on neutral ground.

Hey, it's not full yet--there's still space to add several more conduits.

2 weeks ago I was at a restaurant (vacant at the moment) and in the kitchen I just found something like that: Except for the fact it didn't have a cover and every wire was covered with 30 years worth of grease and dust...
