Default Warning, Stupid social media challange

Warn your kids, grand kids not to do this. In short it is a challenge to kids to short circuit an outlet, and take a pic of the damage to post online. (TIK TOC social media).
I don't want a lot of comments, just want to give a warning.

This is why I have always installed outlets "upside-down" when doing rehab work... Here is a good explanation from the "smart people"

back when I was teaching automotive tech exploratory to freshmen I happened to look over and saw one of the kids appear to be messing with a wall socket. I walked over and he had broken 2 tines off of a fork and was about to stick it into the wall socket. I took the fork away and when I asked him why he said he just wanted to see what would happen. he had no idea it was dangerous.
Kids will do the dumbest things sometimes.

It is quite common to find residential breakers that will not trip on overload. If they are Federal Pacific, then highly likely. Could cause melted wires and fire. Not a good idea at all.
