Well, that’s what it looks like, and what I was thinking when I posted. But now that you mention it, no, I don’t actually know for a fact that those power cords have anything to do with that monitor or the computer it’s connected to.

One way to find out...

I can’t think of any way to work that out. Well, okay, I have dealt with freshman philosophy classes, so I can tap into a reservoir of crazy for one award-winning plan that would technically work, but ...

It is probably more sophomoric than freshman, but you could always just go to the Union and yank those two plugs out of the outlet and see what happens to the monitor. Then plug them back in and see what happens.

Yeah, that’s the award-winning plan I was talking about. Normally, that would be pretty simple and safe, but this is a special case. Somebody got the job of setting up that display, considered all the options they could think of, and built it the way they figured was best. See above for what they thought was the best way to do this.

You want to touch something that mind built? With wall current running through it? Not me, man. Count me out.
