House Goes Viral For The Extreme Amount Of Electric Outlets It Has

There's nothing better than having an electric outlet close to the side of your bed or the sofa – so you can charge your phone, plug in your computer, or tend to any other electronic needs.

But a house in Middlesex, UK, has gone viral for taking this concept and running with it. One eagle-eyed Twitter user must have been cruising house listings and noticed something particularly unusual about this Pinner home…

Toby Davies is obviously being sarcastic, because when you scroll through the pictures of the house, the main thing that stands out is oulets – and lots of them.

In some rooms, the outlets form neat lines around the walls.

And in others, the layout feels much more random.

Even the conservatory has a whole lot of outlets spaced closely together.

Seemingly everywhere you look is an outlet or two.

Andrew Pearce is the estate agent for the listing, and calls it a “family haven, situated in a family-friendly location" near Eastcote Station and Pinner High Street in north-west London.

As well as a whole lot of outlets, the house has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a conservatory, and a garden.

The unusual additions to the house have been met with equal part humor and confusion.

Some people have started coming up with their own theories to explain why there are so many outlets…

A representative from Andrew Pearce said: “This property has attracted over 330,000 views on Rightmove since it's been mentioned on Twitter over the weekend. We have been inundated with enquiries from both genuine buyers and inquisitive members of the public, asking why so many sockets.

“Our client purchased the house in 2014 in its current form and commented that when furniture is in place, the sockets are less visible. The client will address the removal of sockets should that form part of any negotiations with a perspective buyer."

If you're interested in purchasing a house with an outlet for every appliance you own, you'll have to move quickly. The Andrew Pearce spokesperson says: “Despite some of the negative comments, the property is currently going through negotiations and we are anticipating a sale will be agreed shortly. We would encourage any genuine purchasers to get in touch as soon as possible."

Oh, and you'll have to come up with £1,350,000 (~$1.74 million) for the house. Not to mention the electricity bills…

Sometimes life just doesn't have our best interests at heart.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
