A cool guide Types of plugs in the world
  • Which are only necessary because British houses are wired with a ring main. It’s a false economy.

    Also, when it was created, most appliances were earthed. Nowadays, most things one plugs in are small electronic devices which don’t need an earth. Type G/BS1363 has no 2-pin variant, and even mandates a mechanical shutter to prevent a plug without an earth pin from being used. Which was great in 1947, but not so much now, when Europeans, Americans, Japanese, Australians and such have slender 2-pin plugs and economical sockets to put them in, while the Brits/Irish/HK/UAE are stuck with their enormous clownshoe of a plug.

  • Type G only exists because the British skimped on wiring after WW2 and needed to put a fuse in each plug for safety, hence the chonkiness.

  • One test used to diagnose schizophrenia is called the DAP test, or “draw a person” test. It involves asking the patient to draw a person; if the drawing is incoherent (body parts not connected correctly, too few or too many or in the wrong place, etc.) that can be symptomatic of schizophrenia. I was reminded of this by this image, which could probably serve as a diagnostic of some form of cognitive decline (i.e. if a patient responds to this positively, some critical faculty has deteriorated)

  • Europeans, do you take the train to travel to other countries?
  • The trick is to catch a sleeper train. Have a full day of work/leisure, board the train, sleep, and wake up at your destination in the morning.

    The Stockholm-Copenhagen journey is short enough that they park the train somewhere in the middle of southern Sweden for an hour or two to make the timing more convenient.

  • Europeans, do you take the train to travel to other countries?
  • The Swedish sleeper trains between Berlin/Hamburg and Stockholm are pretty convenient, and I can highly recommend them. Apparently there’s one (run by Snälltåget) between Stockholm and Dresden now as well. When the Fehmarn tunnel opens in a few years, the trip will become a few hours shorter, hopefully opening up new routes.

  • Europeans, do you take the train to travel to other countries?
  • If it can be done in less than a full day, yes. Going between, say, Berlin and Stockholm or Munich and Venice, I’d take the sleeper train. Going from Stockholm to London or Madrid, though, I’d fly: as much as I’d prefer to take a train, a journey would take some 24 hours, with several connections (vulnerable to delays) and cost a lot more than a cheap flight.

    Hopefully train connections will continue to improve, though.

    Slim protective cases for the Steam Deck

    Can anyone recommend a good case for carrying a Steam Deck in a backpack or similar which is less bulky than the factory case and yet protects the device? (I’ve heard the Dbrand Killswitch and JSAUX Modcase recommended, though that was a while ago.)
