Bzzzzzt…POP

So this happened:

Apparently, the power plugs supplied by my building aren’t “grounded,” whatever that means. According to the General Services Office at the Consulate, this poses a “fire hazard” or something. If I don’t want to “burn up and die,” they say, I should only use power plugs that aren’t “life-threatening.”

Huh…who knew?
