    Mmmm... soothing lava lamps! They'd make for a nice screensaver.

    (Not to be a party-pooper, but shouldn't this be in the Picture Gallery forum?)

    :confused: How's that useful? I could press it without knowing and turn off anything nearby

    Yes, and yes :p

    Safety standards - I presume if your appliance goes on fire you can isolate it from the power supply.
    I'm sure there's a valid reason, that's just the first thing that came off the top of my head.
