comment Question about GFI in a house
Code only applies to new work. If/when code changes, there's no requirement to bring previous installations up to the new code (unless of course you're doing permitted work). The wiring in the building would only have to meet whatever code was adopted in 1985 when the building was built (unless there were renovations done between then and now).

comment Get “stuck” mounting bolt out of TV?
Pulling on the bolt as you try to loosen it might help. The pressure could cause the threaded bit inside the TV to hold still, allowing you to free the bolt.

comment How do I make ground connections at my receptacle boxes?
If it's a plastic box, you don't have to ground the box. Just the devices in the box.

comment Does getting live/neutral the right way round actually matter?
The answer is fairly clear. Yes it matters, because it reduces the possibility of an appliance/device becoming a shock hazard.

Shopping questions are off topic, so I've edited the question to keep it on topic.
