True but wouldn't it be better to not need them at all? A typical room in a typical apartment should have at least 1 outlet per wall.

That picture is plain nuts haha

Notice how they are not plugged into the wall and there is nothing plugged into them. What exactly is nuts and dangerous? The guy just hung them up on a bookcase to store them there.

Well, other than looking like a festering landfill that only a pig would live in, plus the inherent potential hazard of having a bunch of wires hanging around loosely, nothing I suppose.

The very first thing every single Korean said upon entering the various apartments I lived in during my 6 years there was, "Wow! It is so clean."

I ain't got time for people who live like pigs.

I agree. I used to teach a lot of privates and I visited many apartments. Most(80%)
were pretty clean. Others were not so. But nothing like this guy's hole.

Yeah, me too. It's similar here. I've been in many houses that were big and beautiful but wicked messy. Dirty dishes in the sink, piles of clothes and junk around...I don't get it. Being clean and neat and tidy is basically free and takes no time. Letting shit pile up for days or weeks and then having to go on a cleaning binge that takes up an entire weekend is nuts.

But, I come by my "slight" obsession honestly. Dad was an architect and in the military. Order and precision were obligatory.

No, there is no potential hazard in storing unused extension cords that way.
