Or worse.  Second-degree murder.

FARMINGTON HILLS -- A man charged in the May 3 drunken driving incident
that killed a woman and her two sons will stand trial.

Farmington Hills 47th District Court Judge James Brady heard six
witnesses Friday before determining there was probable cause for Thomas
Wellinger, 48, of Farmington Hills to face charges in Oakland Circuit

A handcuffed Wellinger, who appeared pale and wore a neck brace into
court, is charged with three counts of second-degree murder and
operating under the influence of liquor causing death in the crash that
killed Judith Weinstein, 49, and her sons Alex, 12 and Sam, 9.
Dr. Felix Adatsi, a toxicologist with Michigan State Police Forensic
Crime Labs, said Wellinger registered a .43 blood-alcohol level from
blood serum at 4:20 p.m. May 3 and a .32 blood-alcohol level from whole
blood at 7:16 p.m. that same night at the hospital. By 7:05 a.m. the
following day, Wellinger still was recording a .11 blood-alcohol level,
he said.

Yes.  Exactly.

Depends on HOW you drive.  Just like it depends on HOW you take precautions
to insure your generator is correctly connected.

Neither does using a generator.  Not even close.  

As a matter of fact, would you like to compare how many multiples more
people die from car accidents versus generator accidents?

Matters not ONE IOTA.
It is ILLEGAL in both Canada and the USA to backfeed your panel from a
generator without a positive interlock/lockout - regardless how safe
you may feel it is. Whether you kill someone or not doesn't change

Driving a car 100 MPH in most places in Canada and the USA is also
illegal - whether you are involved in an accident or not. So is
rolling through a stop sign or running a red light. Driving it at the
speed limit and obeying signals is NOT illegal -  and nor is feeding
your panel from a generator WITH A POSITIVE INTERLOCK which prevents
the ouside world from being connected to your genset.

Rather funny that you now have conceded that your original points were
wrong.  Remember, you claimed "What I'm doing is 100% legal and safe."

So it's not 100% legal and you've tried to change the subject.  And now
you state it's not 100% safe.  Because as you say, it depends.  If it
was 100% safe, you wouldn't need that "it depends".

This follows after you started off by saying "Any suggestions are
appreciated."  Then you had a melt-down when you didn't like the

That's 0 for 3.

You just keep on talking and talking and never say a thing.  You try way
too hard.

Guess what?  I had the generator running over the weekend for a few hours
due to a local storm, BACKFEEDING the house nicely.

Once again, nobody got fried.

Care to continue making completely irrelevant "arguments" ?

Go ahead, fool.
