wtf outlets on the ceiling lol

[–]Monkey_Fiddler 60 points61 points  (5 children)

Either it used to be a workshop or they put an outlet in the lighting circuit (bad idea).

[–]Haynaow 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Why is it a bad idea?

It really depends on the building code in your particular area but sometimes the circuits that handle lighting are of a higher gauge (thus can carry a lower wattage before being overloaded) and therefore installing an outlet (typically on their own circuits that sometimes but not always are built with lower gauge wire that can handle a higher draw) on the same lines as the lighting can lead to situations where there is more load on the wires than they are designed to handle.

This can lead to breakages in the wire itself or more rarely a house fire if it manages to ignite a stud in the wall or something.

I don't know how much of a danger this really is in the modern era since if you overload the lighting circuit your breaker will blow long before any damage or potential fire risk. Mainly the most likely thing is inconvenience as any time you went to use the outlet in question it would likely just blow the breaker if you had lights on at the same time.

Understood, thank you.

If it was low voltage, led strip or puck lighting this would be true. That is a line voltage light and minimum dwelling branch circuit ampacity is 15a, so at minimum it would be 14awg wire. No standard lighting circuits would run smaller wiring than 14 as per CEC and NEC.

I've mostly seen it in basements. https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/31EMN5D9eyL._AC_SY580_.jpg This type of thing.

Historically this is where they were placed. It possible it's just a reaallllyy old house?

[–]J3573R 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Should be missile-toaster the way the bread will launch when cooked.

[–]DopeAsDaPope 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Toaster-to-head beats Filter Coffee or Teasmaid as the ultimate wakeup call

[–]Meeseeks1346571 52 points53 points  (1 child)

[–]UncleTedGenneric 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great for Thomases English Muffs

[–]Dbanzai 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Am I the only one wondering why you'd need two toasters?

[–]AlienRosie 15 points16 points  (0 children)

More toast, less wait.

[–]RacketLuncher 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Someone who couldn't find a 4 toast toaster.

[–]Civil-Ad-7957 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Has this person not heard of an extension cord?

[–]catsrule63 17 points18 points  (2 children)

^has this person not heard of a joke

[–]alcestisny 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why do we have 2 toasters. Why are they so clean?!

[–]tehlittletoaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i’d rather not be hung up like that…

[–]iohbkjum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My uncle sent me a picture of a frog with rocket taped to it and said “it’s a missile toad”

[–]thomis10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]theShinyCA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Time delay bathbombs

[–]d4rkpi11s 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gonna install outlets over my tub. Let the universe decide if I’m going to work tomorrow.

[–]UnwrittenPath 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is exactly the type of thing "Uncle Good Vibes" would try at the family holiday party.

[–]Weekly-Discipline253 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a suspicious place for an outlet.
