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 ). 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.
