  1. i was just watching tv and everything plugged into that wall(tv, receiver, cable box, dvd player, portable heater) just shut off. I thought it may have been a power outage, but the lights are still on, cable router and wireless internet are still working, what the hell happened?
  2. power surge? i dunno.
  3. dude my desktop computer just turned off too. 2nd time today. But now it won't go back on. Only thing in my house that did it.
  4. twilight zone
  5. Circuit breaker blown?
  6. what's that
  7. its the new fuse, its all the rage these days.
  8. Nooo! Now I can't watch poker superstars 3! I'm going to have to get off my ass! Woe is me
  9. lmao
  10. Try turning the circuit breaker back on. Portable heaters have a tendency to trip them.
  11. #$%#ing heater
  13. yeah sometimes portable heaters draw too much current and trip the breakers. It happens when we have multiple heaters running at home.
  14. what kinda shacks do you people live in where the breakers get blown?
  15. just because you discovered electricity, doesen't mean you have to brag.
  16. my shack was made before fancy indoor plumbing and the like
  17. Your breakers should blow if you run too much electricity through them.

    What I want to know is how someone survives that long without knowing what a circut breaker is and what it does.
