Has anyone watched any of these at the bottom of threads??? HOLY CRAP could they be any more wrong?

A ground "completes" the circuit if there is a problem???
A ground helps the circuit find ground, because the electricity is seeking ground, or earth???

WOW!!!

Watch this one and tell me what you think: About Neutrals Versus Grounds in House Wiring

That idiot has no clue what he is talking about. Some of it, maybe, but it's all clouded with nonsense.

Here is the picture he showed of a panel mains when he was describing what each of the "3-colors" of wires are for. He failed to mention that there are 2 hots, and the neutral is supposed to be grounded or bonded at the main service.

Take a close look at the corrosion on the right-leg of the mains. Also, note that the box bonding screw is missing:

I saw your comments, but can't figure out how to post my own. I won't allow them to link to my facebook account, as there are too many rogue apps out there...

Is there a sign-up page?

I looked ALL over and didn't find anything. I had to go to the forums and try to post to get a sign up page. THEN I noticed that the buttons were invisible. You have to look for them in the obvious spots. Sheesh.
After all that it told me my e-mail was already in use.

Directly under the video frame is another highlighted link . Click it then on the bottom right after the video reloads is a comment button. Click it and type a few words then try to post and you will be taken to the sign in page.

Jeese what a mess of inaccurate information and a bad panel install picture like sparky pointed out.

I just can't belive this and this person have no common sense to just call the electrician to come out or give them a correct advise there.

Merci.

Must have been the land of make believe. He was making believe he had a frickin' clue he knew what he was talking about.

I actually think it is eHow advertising, but it totally looks like it is part of this site. Hell, there are some at the bottom of this very thread.
