kg2095: Marcus Aurelius: Why is everyone else's so puny?Koreans also have huge fridges. Often more than one. I know some Koreans who have 4 fridges in a house of three people.

jsmilky: Tillmaster:Rik01 was asking about voltage in Europe. It's 220 - 240V. The UK is slightly higher than mainland Europe. This is the normal supply voltage in the US, but it's split down when it comes into your house, into two 110-volt phases. Some appliances, like your range and clothes drier, use 220V directly. I've no idea why the US chose to drop the voltage for other appliances, but it makes for some really lousy electric kettles. Probably perceived as safer. Damn you, Edison!probably because it means less current and so they are safer for the average dumb American. electrocuting our fat assesis frowned upon apparently
Arkanaut: Because Obama is trying to give away as much as he can to the poors.
DrPainMD: Americans don't want to go shopping (or eat out) every day./two person household.//two fridges.///total of ~34 cu. ft.////both packed full.
