Whine Wednesdays Power Plugs

I have several adapters in my computer bag so that I can use my electronics that come with European, US and UK power plugs that are all different.

Hotels usually have number of different adapters that you can borrow from the front desk that other travelers have left behind. I certainly have left number of mine!

I wish that we could come up with worldwide standard for these power adapters. They certainly make connecting electronic devices cumbersome sometimes.
