Harvesting the latest crop of wiring nightmares!

Apparently the call to simplify and to achieve "more with less", thus bringing about more order and sanity, is often lost amid day-to-day IT and electrical implementation chaos.

The goal of this series (other than to simply entertain) is to raise awareness about the abundance of tangled messes in the world and to establish the humanitarian fund dedicated to eradicating this blight entirely from the face of our Mother Earth. (well... maybe not, but in any case... take a picture of some private miserable mess which you face every day and send it to us!)

Enjoy new collection of pics that we've received from concerned readers; first is a sampling of Bangkok wiring (again!), courtesy of PolarInertia, photography by Thomas Kalak -

We may have written about it before, but this computer "mushrooms" recipe will go well with the main "spaghetti wiring" course:

That image of the Indian "electrician" is not uncommon here where I live in Venezuela. Every now and then you get to know these guys' abrupt end-of-lives via the local newspapers.

And to think I can't stand the sight of an extension cord showing. I have to hide wires from the computer, printer, etc. because they're so ugly.
