I hold a Masters in Physics, but I work currently as a Linguist. I am interested in science, computers, people and theology. Besides German, the language I know best is Perl. I am German and live since Mai 2013 in (Metro) Manila.

comment When I turn down the dimmer switch on my lights, do I actually use less electricity?
For both answers: It's not true that a simple resistor does not save power. As Power = Voltage² / Resistance, and Voltage is always 230V (or 110V depending on country), the consumed power actually drops.
