Still, these may fail at a higher rate for other reasons, probably mechanical wear.
BTW, IMHO, I think God damns more than He or She blesses.
The wiring for receptacles , goes from one to the next to the next ..... But it is not a series circuit . They are in parallel on the hot and neutral ( and the earth ground ) .
A lite / switch system taps off the hot and the neutral ( and the earth ground ) . While the single pole switch is in series with the lite , the system as a whole is in parallel .
Actually , God sets the guidelines . Whether we like it or not . If we choose not to follow those guidelines , we dam ourselves .
I will say no more . This is a DIY forum , not a religious forum . If you wish to further discuss this , please feel free to contact me off list .
