People With Blinders On
« on: January 16, 2015, 08:58:53 AM »
It just dismays me how many ,many people go through life like sheep. Follow the leader without giving one seconds thought to both sides. You know,"the earth is flat" mentality . It HAS to be true because everyone says so.  Welllll,that didn't prove out too well did it? So what am I bitching about now?  I have had now 2 discussions recently with the same person over whether or not it is "incorrect" to have a battery disconnect switch in the battery negative. Accepted practice is to have it in the positive cable. I see it as being advantageous to have it in the battery negative cable for a couple reasons. He just will not accept the fact that both ways are proper. Now,for those here that also think the ONLY correct,safe way to disconnect a battery is by having the disconnect in the positive,put your thinking caps on please;) ;)  I'll admit ,I argued long and hard one time that positive cable kill was the ONLY proper/safe way but I FINALLY opened my eyes and thought it through without any "the world is flat"BS preconceived notions. I have the Aussie members here to thank for that.  8) 8) It seems like some of their sanctioning bodies require negative disconnect and others around the world make no distinction. More than one way to skin a rat.

Breaking the circuit is breaking the circuit.  It matters not which side of it you break.  It's like having a loop of string and a pair of scissors.  Cut the loop and it's no longer a loop.  Doesn't matter which side of the knot in the loop of string you cut it on.  Really simple.

And I readily admit that. I do so EVERY time this subject comes up. The Aussies convinced way back then that there was more than one way to do it. Took about 30 pages for me to open my eyes though.  rofl  Just couldn't convince them it was just as good either way. eyes

Tell him to check out older Toyota truck headlight wiring.

Most US cars with H4 bulbs had 1 ground and 2 switched hots.

Older Toy trucks had 1 hot and 2 switched grounds.........

Whenever you work on a vehicle anymore they always say to disconnect the negative wire from the battery. So, ya why not.
