Completely unrelated, but I know a guy locally who is color blind. He's not allowed to ever touch cams.

Had the generator rental company send an extra 50 feet of feeder last weekend. All five pieces had black cams on both ends.

Colored PVC tape is cheap.  At least they didn't put male cams on both ends.

I didn't know gay pride had a season...

It used to be "pride season" in June, near the anniversary of the Stonewall Tavern riots in New York.  We could count on June for LGBT work, Juneteenth celebrations and a couple other human rights type events.  Now the pride stuff is in August or September depending on location and Juneteenth has scaled back in favor of other events.  No "season" as such anymore.

Ours (Pacific Northwest) is in June-- pretty much one starting event late May, and then 3 consecutive weekends in June, each one more complex/busy/etc than the previous.

At least up in this neck of the woods, major Pride events (as in major cities with celebrations) haven't moved past the first weekend of August (Vancouver, BC).

But my first comment was a joke (male-male cam connectors)...  ;)

That's why European power cables have a stripe on the ground wire.

the code says males on cables go to the power. The only reason I have ever heard of reversing the neutral and ground is so some idiot or colorblind stagehand or wannabe show electrician won't get the hookup wrong.

Since the code also states that only qualified and competent people shall hook up power, the reversing scheme is not needed. If you are qualified and colorblind you should not be an electrician  :o

Don't get me started on banded feeder runs  ;D
