UN-United Nations is scheme to enrich otherwise useless people and propel them into international prominence for no apparent reason. It's the useless brother-in-law syndrome. Ul- is a corrupt electrical rating system designed to extract "review fees" from any provider of electrical products. If a product does not have a "UL" rating, it can not be sold in the USA.
Nobody knows exactly WHERE, the UL people reside, nor who they are....it's an enignma of a corrundum...a sham of an inequity.
