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.
