Code requires different voltage systems in a building to be identified by color scheme.  Around here, typically, we use black/red/blue for 208/204 3 phase and brown/orange/yellow for 480 V 3 phase-so if you see orange make sure what you are dealing with.  (Also, ideally 277/480V should use a gray neutral to distinguish.)  High leg can be either open or closed delta.  My understanding is that especially open delta has poor voltage regulation and the high leg to N should never be used.  I have only ever used the high leg on 3 phase loads-that is what it is intended for and the safe way to use it.

Ow!
Ow!
Ow!
Ground. :-D

Much like my circuit tracer. When I hear the high pitched noise, I know I've turned on the breaker to the outlet he's holding.
(I kid of course, it's actually a visual indication based on how high he jumps)

No offense, the topic title really does sound like a setup for a very bad, un-PC joke...

I was looking for a picture of a female alien triped without success.

Prince's hot chicken is the famous one. There's about 10 other restaurants that basically copy them.
