Watching "Crazy Christmas Lights" on TLC, kinda ticked me off. One of the people told everybody watching how to bypass the fuses in the XMas Light Strands, "Take a galvanized nail, pop that fuse out, put the nail in, no problems with tripping."

I can't believe a TV network would let that slide. Those kinds of "Antics" fry wires and burn houses down! I expect that from HGTV.


Sorry for ranting (again),
Ian A.


Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Well at least the EC can cash-in on the fire restoration job afterwards.

Insurance companies pay quite well I understand.
