As of a few days ago I'm officially a home owner. Hopefully by January I can start on building my own reloading shop in the basement.

Well, turns out I get to keep the leg. Funny, the notion of becoming one of the earliest human cyborgs did not entirely disagree with me. But yeah... yeah, better to keep the existing wetware.

Holy shit what?

I just moved back to CA from being on the least coast for 5 years. I was updating the garage lighting from fluorescent to LED. Turned off the light switch and put masking tape over it, (proper lockout/tagout) and my non-contact voltage tester kept going wild near the wire.

Turns out it was wired so the neutral was connected to the switch, and the hot was, well, always hot. Good thing I didn't touch the wire or ground it while handling. Pulled apart the garage light switch and fixed it. Looks pro now.

Before pic. The white wires are "neutral" and should be tied together. The black wires are "hot" and should be connected to the switches.

Good to hear man!

Jesus! I have some outlets that aren't grounded. But there fixable. However the home inspector missed some wood rot underneath my bathroom... I got a refund for the inspection but I still may sue. Going to have to get a plumber and carpenter and a quote Monday.

I'm a'ight bru, just some fall damage that could've gone muuuch worse, and took forever to heal. The only reason I'm even revealing it now is that it's basically no longer an impediment anyone could exploit knowledge of.

  Going on a Ride-Along with the Australian Police - The Jim Jefferies Show

2:46 In Australia, 22 police officers were killed on the job between 2003 and 2016, but last year, in 2018, 55 police officers in the US were shot and killed.

The annual number of US police officers killed has fallen by more than 65 percent since 1976, but the number of people US police kill remains relatively high, at around a thousand people per year. Last year police shot and killed 998 people, 11 more than the 987 they fatally shot in 2017. In 2016, police killed 963 people, and 995 in 2015. About 54 percent of those killed have been armed with guns and 4 percent unarmed.

Four years in a row, police nationwide fatally shoot nearly 1,000 people: https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/four-years-in-a-row-police-nationwide-fatally-shoot-nearly-1000-people/2019/02/07/0cb3b098-020f-11e9-9122-82e98f91ee6f_story.html

US ranks 19th in Wikipedia's list of killings by law enforcement officers by country:
United States: 996 killed out of a population of 328,485,000 in 2018, making that a rate per ten million people of 30.4.
"2018 police shooting database". Washington Post. January 3, 2019.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_killings_by_law_enforcement_officers_by_country

But the #1 spot goes to Venezuela with 5287 killed out of a population of 32,381,000 in 2018, making that a rate per ten million people of 1632.7. More than 53 times the rate of the United States cops gunning down people.

Gotta wonder if those Venezuela killings count the non-uniformed ones. It's a shitshow there.
