    In a four-minute video, Scott outlines why the plug is "one of the greatest designs that has ever hit the world".

    He also highlights that the live and neutral pins are insulated, protecting you when a plug is only halfway in.

    Scott also points out the earth wire in the British plug is deliberately slack.

    There is one issue with the British plug though...

    If you drop it, it will almost certainly end up pointing upwards, resulting in serious agony for anyone who stands on it.
