Clever man overclocks his house

It seems that you can overclock way more than just your computer. A man in Kentucky has managed to overclock everything in his house, simply by increasing the frequency in his electric current. Inspired by the "measly" performance of all his electronics, Lance Hatler decided that 60Hz was not enough for his house. After a lot of trial and error, along with several trips to the emergency room, Hatler has managed to overclock his electrical current to 900MHz. Increasing this frequency any further caused minor fires and structural instability (no his house didn't bluescreen :p). A mere example of all this extra power is Hatler's newfound ability to shred 2x4's (large pieces of wood) in his garbage disposal. Unfortunately, due to the extreme heat output of this overclock, Hatler had to put a gigantic CPU cooler on top of his house. His house maintains a balmy 115 degrees Fahrenheit. When asked what Hatler plans to do next, he claims he will break the 1GHz barrier with the help of liquid cooling.

Actually back in the 40's most of North America ran at 50MHZ on our power supply.

Hz, not MHz. big difference. now its 60Hz in NA.

To Quote:

Up to the '40's the iron laminations of rotors and stators of electric motors and generating equipment were poor quality and hysteresis losses were a major factor. (note how large old electric motors are compared to newer ones). Higher frequencies would have worsened the losses so up 'till then 25 Hz was common in Canada and the US.
When better steel was used for laminations, north America changed to 60 Hz about 1950, the Europeans decided 50 Hz was the cat's meow.
