Tic-tac-toe, four in a row

Home on the range. Well, not exactly. More like a diamond and and a bunch of seashells.

Kids, don't try this at home. There are four burners arranged in a square, and four dials arranged in a line. Now suppose you want to turn on the left-rear burner of the stove. You can only turn one dial. Which knob should you turn? Choose carefully or you might get burned.

Nope, that was the oven. How could you have made a dumb mistake like that? Because they all freaking look the same. The next time you see a new oven sporting the 4 × 1, or, g-d forbid, the 5 × 1 layout, do us all a favor and don't buy it. No one cares if your stupid product has n30 automatic timer settings, because it boils the wrong pot of water. What could be more obvious than a 2 × 2 control for a 2 × 2 stovetop range?

Together we can stamp out stupidity.

Don't stop in the kitchen. Stop reading this weblog look at the ceiling. Are all of your lights lined up in a straight line down the center of the room? Then why are your light switches?
