have noticed this “light” switch for years. I put quotes around “light” as it’s not “A” light switch, rather it’s 7 switches. Why this fascinates me I have no idea. But, it does.
First of all, I’ve never seen it in any other position than this, with all 7 switches in what I presume to be, the ON position. So, my first question is why not just 1 switch? Or, maybe a 3 and then a 4 way switch? It just seems so, confusing and complicated. It’s in a medical facility, thus why I would see it, of course. No, it’s not in a clinic or treatment area so no, it’s not wired to oxygen, movable beds, or patient TVs.
Next, IF there was ever a need to have a few of the 7 on or off, can you imagine telling someone from across the room which switch to turn? “Yeah, can you flip the switch 4th from the left? No, your left, no, again, there yeah, that’s it.”
Then, when this was being built you cannot tell me that the electrician said, “Yeah, I think I have a 7-switch plate in the van. Be right back!”
I have this urge to turn them all off and then back on with two swipes of my forearm. I don’t of course, but it always crosses my mind.
Yes, this is the mind of a very disturbed man who is never starved for blog content. Thank you, and good day.
