    bit of a let down wernt it....no sword duels...with 3 shields and no eyegouging of course..not even a swearing of a blood oath over the fence....or dedication to Odin for having the audacity to snub his switch screws....boring!!!...their ancestors must feel shame...and their descendants dishonoured
    such matters here would never be resolved without a bitter blood feud that lasted at least 300 years
    oh how the gods do wail in lament of such shameful deeds as these

    My friend put those in, I pried one off with my pocket knife (put a big gouge in his newly painted wall doing so) and guess what? The screws underneath were any old way, neither vertical or horizontal, we got in a bit of an argument about that and I'm not allowed in his house anymore.

    nothing so fancy or planned i would guess...straight into mains waterpipe or a natural groundspring would do the trick...cats n dogs are not fussy
    question the sanity of the electrician later...when someone mentioned flow he thought they meant water...design by mishap...imagine him explaining it to a Clerk of Works..or Site Manager..."errr,,...the cats kill the rats.....and the night watchmans dog was thirsty"...

    I just tighten till snug and not worry about it. I guess if I really cared I’d probably go with vertical but maybe not

    The correct answer to your question is "yes"...as long as they are all in the same direction. :)

    Don't laugh. I actually do pay attention to this when I paint someone's house. I always return the screws to vertical when I finish.

    Pro tip: when removing wall plates when painting walls, always put the screws back in the wall receptacle while the plate is off. For whatever reason the screws always disappear if left loose, while the wall plates never go missing.

    I always put the slots parallel to the edge they are near..... at right angles to an edge looks wrong..:D

    learned that in highschool wood shop.... and from cabinet makers...;)

    Neither is correct. The screws should be tightened to be snug, not to be vertical or horizontal.

    The argument I heard for vertical is in case of a flood the water will flow down the slot and not rust the screw. If floodwater is high enough to reach light switches I don't really care about the well being of the damn screws.

    Your neighbor is right according to the TDPRI bumpched shrit principle.

    Just looking at your receptacle on the left it’s obvious your shrit is bumpched in the box.

    Whaddaya think this is, TGP?

    More importantly, how would Cthulhu demand that the screws be aligned in a non-euclidean world?
