Quite a long time ago there were some very amusing articles on one of the electrical forums that I am now searching for with no luck. One of them explains how a GFCI works, complete with a little operator inside of it, and another one explains how electricity works and how the POCO just keeps selling us the same electrons over and over again. If anyone remembers these articles or who posted them I would appreciate it very much.

It was a youtube video. Its titled "Basic Fundamentals of Electricity". It will pop up as the first video if you search on youtube with that title.

Thanks, that was it! Now if I could find the one about how the GFCI works. It was pretty funny.

That youtube "Basic Fundamentals of Electricity" was submitted by none other than Evan Williams.

Electure, my friend, you are far too cynical.

I'll have you know that I work with, or deal with, folks with the following names:
John Walker
Charlie Daniels
David Jones
Donald Duck
Diego Garcia
Mary Hartman
Jessie Lange
Charlie Brown
James Bond and
Kent Clark

I have no doubt there really is an Evan Williams laugh

I think that a homeowner, intent on getting a permit to wire his new 8500SF houes watches this video over & over.

He calls and asks me if I approved his application at least 3 times a week. His last submittal was rejection #9.

Yes, I'm for real. Donald is currently a guest of the Tennessee governor.

Personally, I think his parents should be sharing some responsibility for his troubled life.
