zwarte piet Re:Score one for the other team (173 comments)

I have no evidence of your existence, your posts on slashdot can be explained in many other ways. Would "you" find it very delusional if I sort of assumed (wich is a form of believing) that you do, without doing any research?

Why Morgan Stanley Is Betting That Tesla Will Kill Your Power Company

zwarte piet Re:Good, I say (502 comments)

Ah yes, found those in my house (1926) when I was renovating, they were in steel pipes and in reasonable condition. No crumbling. I also found thick steel gaspipes leading to the center of every ceiling. They were still pressurized. Needless to say I removed all those. I kept the bakelite switches.
