And, lo, it stinketh, even unto the heavens

This evening I discovered that the electrical outlets in my garage are wired in series. I discovered this because one of them is a GFI outlet, and something tripped it. I discovered it via the simple expedient of having a freezer full of meat turn rancid. I am not happy about this discovery. Fortunately there wasn’t much in the freezer, but it was still a lot of wasted food, and I *REALLY* hate throwing away food.
