Hello, I'm trying to install a ceiling light. I have learnt that black is hot and white neutral. Am I wrong to assume that white is hot in my case according to the picture. And if it is, what are the other two cables?

Note that on the fixture I removed , the white and the longer of the other two cables were both connected to the fixtures' white.

I'm lost please help. I blew a breaker already trying connections...

I suspected that the Facebook page would flood this site with DIY posts but this is pretty entertaining.

Heck he ever has an avatar.
