Attack News: Lester Forward, 38, from Sheerness, Kent, was seriously wounded yesterday evening after rounding off a prediction about the fate of a particular TV character with the phrase ‘you do the math’.

Forward, who was standing in the queue at a Tesco garage and has never visited America, was chatting to a colleague when he was set up by Edward Grant, 35, of no previous convictions, who claims ‘he just snapped’.

I was asking for ten Bensons while overhearing his conversation,” Grant told police, “and when he said ‘you do the math’ what I can only describe as a blind rage took hold of me. I took a biro from the counter and plunged it into his arm.”

Witnesses say Grant was ‘like a wild animal’, counting out loud how many times he was stabbing his victim and then shouting ‘you do the math’.

Forward, who is now recovering in hospital, says he feels ‘lucky to be alive’.

I guess I didn’t realise that Tesco’s could be full of such nutjobs – my bad.”

    So… if he was stabbed in a Tesco garage, why does the hospital he’s pictured in not have UK power sockets?

    …I also don’t like people who say “my bad”.

    @My mum – They’re Bupa plug sockets. You’ve obviously never gone private…

    To my mum…..thought I might help you understand your stupid comment, please read on and become wiser.

    The NEC does not specify what position a duplex receptacle is placed. However, some electrical plans, such as those for hospitals, may call that receptacles be placed with the ground hole facing up. This is to help prevent contact being made with the hot and neutral with something falling on a plug of a cord. The ground prong may help protect this from happening.

    The other school of thought is that with the ground hole facing down on a duplex receptacle if the plug of the cord has something fall on it the last blade to disengage would be the ground pin.

    Why are the plug sockets not from the UK? You do the math.
