Not sure where in the forum this post should go, so here seems a good place!

Like most of us, I sometimes take pictures for my own amusement and/or to save the boss leaving his chair and actually visiting the site when I see dangerous wiring. I was wondering if anyone here knows of, or runs a website that collects such pictures.

Example, I've got pictures of where the tenant wired a shower themselves using 1.5mm cable connected to a convenient socket in the bedroom. Didn't have a bit of cable long enough, so used part 6243 and 6242 joined by a chock strip buried under the plaster. Nice pictures of melted chock strip. Apparently it did work (once, for a few seconds).

Just thinking that a website with such examples on would be good. Well, it would make us laugh anyway!
