Dead-Guy: OnlyM3: MissFeasance [TotalFark]We have them for the ceiling fan in the bedroom. It's useful as I'm not clever enough to remember which is the light and which is the fan. The entire thing runs by remote control anyway so I don't see the point, but eh. They were like $3 at Home Depot.Wait... You can't figure out how to look up? The chain connected to the light-y part is for the *pay attention now*... LIGHTS. The chain connected to the big fan motor is for the Fan-y part./notices the "Total Fark" tag... ahhh It's alllllll clear now.Using your brilliant technique, please let us know which chain is linked to the light, and which is linked to that singular braincell rattling in your otherwise empty head?[my.jetscreenshot.com image 640x498]
shArkh: Holy crap, enough about the teeth already. You morans are getting this impression from legends of WW2, pre-NHS, where the only exposure you had to our culture were your armed forces mingling with ours, and most of ours were poors / conscripts. Since 1955, dentistry has been free, unlike you savages whom I regularly meet with bits hanging out of their mouths since healthcare = price gouging here. Picking the inbred hicks out of The Sun or Daily Fail as examples is like me calling everyone rednecks because of a couple of trailer parks. Give it a rest already.Screen doors still confuse me. Everywhere is air-conditioned, so why?
Maul555: Kahabut: Voiceofreason01: Flint Ironstag: As a Brit sitting here with my ceiling fan, home AC and ice maker in the fridge I'm really getting a kick etc.Don't have a waste disposal, though they are available here, or a screen door, which aren't common but hardly rocket science.EVERY house has a kitchen sink with a disposal in the US, even shiatty little apartments have them. I kinda assumed it was one of those things that made modern plumbing work right.No, that is simply your bias, and not in any way related to the facts. MOST domiciles in the US do NOT have a garbage disposal, and only anything built (roughly) after 1980 is even likely to be compatible with one.Just saying.My grandmothers 1960's house/neighborhood all have garbage disposals... But it is an upper-middle class place.../even has a wet bar//texas

Blueintheballs: Most of the questions here can be answered with the same response:Q: Don't you have A/C there?A: No - it's a temperate (but cold) climate.Q: Dont' you have ceiling fans there?A: No - it's a temperate (but cold) climate.Q:Don't you have screen doors there to keep out the bugs?A: No - it's a temperate (but cold) climate.As to the waste disposal - that just goes in the bin because we dont have to worry about insects because it's a temperate (but cold) climate.Hope this helps!
antnyjc: Also England's temperature is very mild. Doesn't get too hot, doesn't get too cold. At least not as an extreme difference as it is in most area's of the world. Rains a bloody lot though. Very similar to Seattle.

MrDoh: Don't get why anyone with a pool doesn't have their AC hooked up to it to warm the pool, cool the house.
