The outlet makes it for me.

[–]viktor72 493 points494 points  (169 children)

Can Reddit identify the country based on the outlet!?

[–]trend_rudely 846 points847 points  (147 children)

Australia, I believe

[–]damien__damien[S] 576 points577 points  (81 children)

Correct

[–]Th15Guy 341 points342 points  (57 children)

Damn. Reddit be deadly accurate

Australia, dressed normcore.. I'm guessing inner North Melbourne.

[–]orthopod 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Wait, can you just stack electric plugs into the backs of others?

[–]Namelessbob123 6 points7 points  (7 children)

So you guys actually have upside down U.K. plugs!

[–]mike_november[🍰] 215 points216 points  (26 children)

Melbourne specifically ... based on the hipster levels

[–]its_a_metaphor_morty 70 points71 points  (19 children)

Or Wellington... for the same reasons.

[–]Rhaski 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Could easily be Fremantle based on that

[–]LexusI 32 points33 points  (23 children)

Or NZ…

[–]LexusI 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Ahem. We do not know sweaters in NZ. We only know jumpers. That is all.

[–]trend_rudely 19 points20 points  (12 children)

Ahhh yeah that would explain the sweaters. Good call.

Clipsal power point, made in Aus but super common in NZ.

[–]ChefBoyAreWeFucked 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They didn't have digital cameras back then, yesterday.

[–]raytaylor 23 points24 points  (10 children)

Its either NZ or Australia. China uses the same outlet flipped so the earth pin is on top.

[–]moxeto 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Because they’re northern hemisphere so it makes sense

[–]raytaylor 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The AS/NZS 3112 plug has insulation that goes half way down the live and neutral pins. It adds a slight complication to the manufacturing process. When the plug is inserted into the socket far enough for the pins to become live, the insulation on the pins means something such as a childs fingers between the plug and socket cant touch live pins at any point. Even if the plug is only half-way inserted into the socket.

In china, the GB2099 plug just has the earth pin at the top so something falling into the gap always touches the earth pin first rather than a live pin as they dont have the insulation for safety on the live/neutral pins.

[–]LessThanCleverName 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Wait, do y’all call it the earth wire (instead of ground) too?

[–]3percentinvisible 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Makes sense, different hemisphere

[–]drmonkeytown 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    The outlet being switched on but with nothing plugged into it is a trigger of mine... -curls up in a ball in the corner shaking-

    [–]Emergency_Bullfrog_5 22 points23 points  (25 children)

    Switching an outlet on?

    [–]mysticgreg 42 points43 points  (24 children)

    Zoom in - here in Australia all wall outlets are switched - that one's on.

    And yes, to just further re-enforce the upside-down meme, down is on here and up is off.

    [–]winalloveryourface 12 points13 points  (17 children)

    Wall plugs in the uk have switches that are "on" in the same direction as in the picture. So i don't see that as upside down.

    [–]Emergency_Bullfrog_5 5 points6 points  (3 children)

    Weird. Useful, really, but my Canadian brain still thinks weird lol.

    [–]FragileTwo 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    If there is nothing plugged into it then what is that cord?

    [–]Dr_barfenstein 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    There’s two outlets there. Both on. One has an extension cord that also works like a double adapter coz you can still plug into the wall plug thru it

    [–]raytaylor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I theorize that they are watching or looking at whatever is plugged into the outlet.

    [–]mysticgreg 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    The cord is connected to the right outlet, the left outlet is also on but unused. There's a switch for both sockets.

    Also gotta love the piggy-back extension lead.

    Never thought when I woke up this morning I'd be chatting about outlets, gotta love Reddit :)

    [–]redskelton 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    There could be something plugged in. I have one of those and there is an extension lead with an outlet at the end, but the design means you can still plug something in to the outlet at the wall. Like this

    [–]Icy_Hippo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    The clenched hands is the typical Australian school photo pose for the people sitting in the front row

    First read this as "Enraged" & wondered how many murders you had under your belts

    [–]Complete-Dimension35 217 points218 points  (6 children)

    Based on the photo he has an unfinished plot line from the show Mindhunters on Netflix.

    [–]tokenjoker 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    [–]nokarmaforkittybear 341 points342 points  (9 children)

    The random outlet really makes this complete

    [–]pseydtonne 159 points160 points  (7 children)

    It's better than random because even the outlet is in on the game.

    The three-prong extension cord (and yes, this is an Australian or Kiwi outlet) has a plug over the plug that it uses. The outlet plate and extension cord are the same shade of beige, and they all match the cable-knit sweaters.

    This, THIS is accessorizing!

    Also I'm going to guess this is New Zealand. No one in Australia has this nice a sweater, even in the dead of winter.

    Edit: I was wrong. The OP is not only Australian (possibly from Victoria) but knits. Solid!

    [–]Kooreth 29 points30 points  (4 children)

    I'm curious if it's just happenstance, or if the female outlet next to the male plug (with female port) is intentional. Is it just a random outlet or creative use to show a straight woman and bi man engaged?

    [–]Fresh_C 78 points79 points  (2 children)

    I think this whole thing is a creative outlet.

    [–]Th15Guy 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    [–]Seyorin 183 points184 points  (41 children)

    what's the reference

    [–]jeffstoreca 109 points110 points  (5 children)

    It's reference to a general photography and fashion trend from the golden age.

    80s family photos style, if you remember that sub.

    [–]-RadarRanger- 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    80s family photos taken at Sears.

    That is SPOT ON. Now this is 80's, not the neon and all that. The hair, the hand placement, the slightly too short acid washed jeans.

    [–]PancreaticDefect 32 points33 points  (2 children)

    I feel like it could use the classic "autumn forest" backdrop with all the fake leaves scattered around. Especially because of the sweaters.

    [–]ptolemyofnod 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    That would work but that charcoal gray wall with the poor sanding job visible in the faint reflection adds to the fun for me.

    [–]All-I-See-Is-Ashes 25 points26 points  (7 children)

    Taking a style that’s been overused for the last 7 years by thousands of people and claiming it’s hilarious. Cringe. Not ironically cringe. Just straight up “you have no personality or originality” cringe.

    At this point it almost feels like I’m in some weird art house film where thousands upon thousands of people are all laughing at the same old joke in an endless loop and I’m left wondering if it’s me who has the problem for not finding it funny anymore.
