I think some may be a little confused about what consitutes a complete electrical circuit. A series circuit as well as a parallel circuit must be complete.This is why it is called a circuit. A switch on the other hand, simply makes and breaks the hot lead of a circuit. It in itself is not a circuit. A switch can only be connected in series within the circuit. Hooking a switch in parallel would cause a short circuit. No matter how one runs recepticles(either out of a junction or looping through from recepticle to recepticle, all residential 110v.circuits are wired in parallel.

I just noticed in the BPR quote that Cunk posted she said-

Show me the ...beef...money....pan box with 11+ clamp count. Then GET REAL Because there is NOTHING COMMON OR USUAL ABOUT IT its your own invention didn't pass then wouldn't pass now..
This really points out her inexperiance and lak of knowlege. She thinks because NEC 2008 requires 20 amp circuits in the kitchen that all houses have upgraded to NEC2008. She also doen't know ther are several differnet sizes of junction boxes which can have a fill count mhigher than 11.

The fill restrictions are OLD.
Funny you've given up on the nasty name calling and claiming there were only four (not 10 plus at least one) wires/conductors to be counted in your diagram. But in justifying your insults and name calling you claimed you had even GREATER fill considerations throughout your home, and claimed this was common all around you. Wasn't correct then, still not correct now.
You're the only one that said anything about 2008 NEC, Jack.
