You know, when I caught some blokes in the pub reading a train enthusiasts magazine, they asked if I was going to be all "tch, trainspotting" or find it boring. No, I said, in a sudden flash of self-insight, I find everything interesting. Trains exist, therefore they are interesting[1].

So I bring you my newest geeky thing:

Plugs And Sockets of the world

My favourite is Type K, the Danish 3-pin:

How cute! What small child couldn't resist poking a paper clip in those cheeky eyes? Just imagine it giggling insanely as it toasted aforementioned child in an electric arc of pure evil!

[1] This doesn't apply to Botany, or any science that is entirely reliant on microscopes. If it requires equipment more delicate than a big hammer, it's not proper science, it's just poncing about in a lab coat.

If it requires equipment less than 10 miles long then it's not proper science :->

OK, "equpiment not smaller than a hammer" covers all the butch sciences, but what the f*ck requires equipment more than ten miles long? Road building??

The kind of conveyor belts that lift ores from mining are very long, but I'm not sure how long.

Or particle accelerators?

Yeah - I want one.

I don't know what I'd do with it, but I still want one.
