Most 120 volt circuits consist of 3 wires:

1) Hot wire
2)Neutral ground wire
3) Equipment/device ground wire

The hot wire is generally black, but can be any color except white or green. The neutral ground wire is always white and the equipment/device ground wire is either bare copper or green. (Some homes built in the 1970's may have aluminum wire which is silver rather than copper.)

The hot wire brings charged electrical current to your devices and the neutral ground carries discharged current from your devices. The equipment/device ground is a safety wire that is used in the event of a fault in the equipment or wiring.

240 volt wiring combines 2 hot wires to provide the current required for the device. Along with additional current come a higer amperage rating. The higher amperage delivered by 240 volt circuits makes them particularity dangerous. All household electricity is potentially lethal.

Try to guess the meanings of various Scottish colloquialisms (sp).

1) Edgy
2) Bamm
3) Mosh (not quite scottish)
4) Whitey (verb = to "white")
5) Rattle (verb = to "rattle")

That should keep ya going for a while!

Hehe, you did ask me to guess:

1. A fallen Paladin's laugh as Stormy throws lightening bolts at his feet
2. Bamm the sound a fallen Paladin makes after Stormy successfully hits him (hitting the ground, of course)
3. The Sound a fallen Paladin makes while chewing his own fingers (finger liking good...)
4. The only food a fallen Paladin can eat after chewing his fingers off. See maggets.
5. The action a fallen Paladin makes when Stormy and The Black Knight Say his name in conversation. Done without said fallen Paladin knowing why. hehe

How can I resist such a challenge. Since it's the NHL playoffs, here are some hockey questions.

1) What is a hat trick? A natural hat trick? A Gordie Howe hat trick?
2) Where did hockey originate (something a little more specific than just Canada)?
3) Who made the original hockey sticks?
4) What was Lord Stanley's full name? His position?
5) What did he intend to call what became known as the "Stanley Cup"?
6) What year was the cup first awarded, and to which team?

1. Three goals in a game, three goals in a period, a goal, and assist, and a fight?
2. Nova Scotia
3. Best guess is here: http://www.rose-hulman.edu/Class/che...key/hockey.htm
4. Sir Frederick Arthur Stanley, 1st Baron Stanley of Preston, 16th Earl of Derby; Governor General: 1888 - 1893
5. Dunno what he called it, but it was to go to the top Amatur team in Canada
6. Montreal AAA in 1893
