    The upside down switch isn't necessarily installed wrong. Probably, just upside down. That's easy to fix.

    The word "Woodchuck" came from right around my village. It is an Anglicization of the Narragansett Language name for the animal.

    My guess is they first used it to describe the settlers who got kicked-out of the even weirder colonies in Massachusetts which consisted
    of petty criminals, dead-beats, religious whack-jobs.

    For a really sad part of American history, look up "The Great Swamp Massacre" -- King Phillip's War . 2 miles south of my house.

    Surely, a grounded counterpoise is a earth...right?

    The counterpoise was not grounded, unless one resting on the surface of the earth was it!
