I always run into this page when I’m trying to look up what different electrical plugs are used in different parts of the world. Believe me, I look this kind of thing up more often than you might think. Anyway, I totally agree with his point: we would save a lot of money, confusion and aggravation if we could all just agree on what type of plug to use, what side of the road to drive on, what size shoes to wear, etc.
That being said, the site is very interesting, and has lots of cool facts about the different standards used around the world.
