I just discovered the fool that wired this home used 14 AWG to run power to:
The range (which is gas, but uses a small amount of electrical power)
Two outdoor receptacles
The interior garage lights
All three exterior light fixtures
and they are all on the same 15 amp circuit. The microwave that is installed here can draw 1600W or basically 13 amps all on its own.
Who does this?!
And fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain
