    If you are going to rewire your house, I'm your huckleberry. I've got all kinds of pliers, dikes and screwdrivers and electricians' tape. I hope that I get the grounds right and that I calculated the service capacity correctly and your house wont burn down.
    Oh, I'm not a qualified electrician. I have a host of electricians I consult, but in the end I go with my gut. If it's more convenient to put a junction box inside the ceiling, that's where I put it. Hopefully the 20 pod lights and oven hood don't overload anything. I don't worry about splicing copper wire to aluminum with wire nuts and tape. How hot can it get?

    Wouldn't you feel safe with me on the job?

    Yes, because you're very very intelligent, you should know, you say it all the time.

    I'd dearly love to be able to gloat, but I live in the UK, and right now we are in the same position. Populism has trumped intellect (pun not intended).

    I support the right to speak your mind in regard to the OP. Insert the old adage here about not agreeing ,but defending your right to say it.

    I am an American who supports my President. I even supported “The One” who held the office previously.
    My rant and you can call it a rant, was directed at bringing politics in to a guitar forum. I’m sure I read something to the effect that this is a SG forum and politics was not discussed.

    sorry if I offended you or anyone here. And for the record I don’t melt, been through a career of too many nights away from my wife waking up with sand in my kit, boots and rack, waking up smelling canvas and cordite.

    Now Spiral...Spring is upon us, suggest you ask your mom really ( or is it wheeley wheeley in your case) nice if you can bring your Esteban guitar and amp up from the basement so it does not get water damaged when the big melt happens, or you blow-out your Huggies which ever comes first.

    Don't worry. Your president has said the USA will reopen in three weeks - the pandemic will be over.

    Happy guitar playing everyone.
    It is a great stress reliever and a source of benevolence.
    Peace to all.
    Just gonna play my guitars and chill. “Imagine there’s no virus, no flu virus as well. You may say that I’m a Patriot, but I’m not the only one, and happiness is still a warm g*n (did you hear what he said, oh my!) (clutches pearls!)Imagine figuring out and remembering the scales”.

    seriously great website, but have had enough rhetoric.

    going to my safe space now. Bye

    Personal insult and unpleasant name calling is unacceptable here, no matter how inaccurate. Cut it out.

    Actually if that was the case this would be a friendlier place but I've seen people call each other retards and all kinds of sh!t over the most ridiculous of issues and that doesn't seem to have resulted in anything. I'm glad to note that politics seem to be a no-no though, even though it doesn't seem to have been enforced in an overly enthusiastic way in this thread.

    That math just doesn't add up and is certainly unreliable and partial.

    WHO estimate of mortality rate is 3.4%. That is worldwide, and will include many people who have a much lower base health rate than the average American or European. I'm doing my best to avoid it, of course, but I'm not going to lose sleep over a figure like that.

    Can the mods just take this thread down please. I happen to agree with Biddlin, but this isn't a site that people come to to talk politics. Shut up and show me some guitars to drool over

    Hmmm...
    Seems to me that all sorts of things go on backstage that some folks might be offended by. If you don't want the sex and drugs part then don't hang backstage with Mötley Crüe in the '80s.
    Isn't this The Backstage? I see people 'ignoring' posters on this forum all the time. Seems like if you open the dressing room door a bit and see something you'd rather not you might just shut that door and move on.
