** Well, maybe. The switch routes to a voltage doubler on the 115V setting. Switching it to 230V in the US, Canada, and other 100V-120V countries won't do anything. Switching to 115V in 230V countries however will blow up the power supply.

* Speaking of the military, if you happen to have a friend in uniform ask him what random crap job was dumped on the poor hapless private who rose his hand when the question "Who likes ice cream?" or "Who's interested in skydiving?" was asked. While you're at it, ask him if it was ''him''. Despite being a very obvious trap, it is very common practice for the higher-ups to sucker in an unwitting volunteer for an unpleasant task by asking such a question because there's always one guy who's either too inexperienced or simply not paying attention who puts his hand up.

* At the Battle of Hastings in 1066, William (commanding the Normans) ordered part of his army to deliberately retreat; the Anglo-Saxons on the other side came out of their strong defensive position to pursue ... right into William's reserve cavalry in full charge. After the third repetition of this, the Anglo-Saxon defensive line had lost so many men that William could finally break through, and become William the Conqueror.

* In the late 2000's tons of videos appeared on YouTube claiming to have found glitches, exploits, or secrets in the most popular video game titles at the time (such as VideoGame/Halo3 or VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV).
