I only looked through a few but really didnt see a problem. Looks legit.
Hmmm. Well - I have not been in the States for very long and come from Europe where a situation like this will get a house officially buttoned up by the police. This kind of "spagetti" and open end wiring is not code where I'm from.

Glad to hear that it is "OK" here though... :laughing::laughing:

Good god almighty that's some sloppy crap. Bonus points on the last photo however for the disconnects nailed to a chunk of wood @ a 45° angle. Love the split bolt just chillin there as well. I laughed when I saw this mess for real

does it get any worse? what a world, what a world.:eek::eek::eek:
actually yes a long time ago i had to fix some diy messes in a bar and found a couple hot wires splices together with just a 1/4 by 20 bolt ,nut and washers
not even taped up (fluorescent lights in a drop ceiling)
found a few other things that made me shake my head!:rolleyes:
the new bar owner is a friend of mine and called me to check things out before he had the poco turn the power on (smart call):laughing:
