Comment Re:Technology will turn this all upside down (Score 1) 264

We (CCW-ers) only get upset about people knowing because then they raise a stink about it. Where I live, there is a huge proliferation of guns and hunting, so even if people knew they'd shrug and go about their day. In a major coastal city (say in California or the New England areas) everyone would flip a shit, call the cops on me, and accuse me of being a baby-killer.

Comment Re:Microwave trays (Score 1) 222

Why not do both at the same time? Power draw. A microwave can take over half the available load on a standard household circuit. Most are wired for 15 amps before the breaker starts tripping. Heating elements are just as power-hungry, which is why you typically see electric stoves on a dedicated 240V, 20A circuit. I would guess most houses do not have the wiring to support this.
