    "Feel the power of Jesus! Plug in!"

  • That's actually quite useful. There's always this conflict between big adaptors facing the right direction…..

    Next try a swastika. It's a more efficient shape and they massacred far fewer than the Christians over time.

    looks hilarious without anything plugged in – all of the little screaming outlet faces!

  • It doesn't matter the shape of this extension, too many outlets are not good!

    so to quote the article this surge protector can, 'accommodate oversized adapters'. does anyone think it's funny that in the very first picture of the article [with all the plugs plugged in] it clearly looks like you face the same problem? the black plug on the left clearly is too large to let you plug in an appliance to the plug next to it!

    if you set out to solve a problem that plagues everybody [lord knows i would love to not have to worry about my adapter being too large and taking up 2-3 plugs] why don't you solve the problem??!! geez….

    I can certainly appreciate the many metaphors this work conveys within todays urbane society and the artist/maker/designer's post modernist art practices. It certainly does make the viewer think and look.
    Yes, it is not very green, but I don't think the maker had that intention when making the object.
    Apart from the above, another thought came to mind.
    There is a musical rock band named "ACDC" they had a song title "High Voltage Rock and Roll" !!
    I am sure the performers of this band would have enjoyed plugging in their not so green instruments into this not so green appliance when they initially performed this song all those many decades ago!
