Introduction: Redirecting a Light Switch
This is a simple solution to the problem of inconvenience with a misplaced light switch. My roommates light switch has been strategically placed in the corner of his room, behind the door by an ingenious electrician. As a result, the person occupying the room must enter the dark room, averting disaster and avoiding the many obstacles in the way, to simply flick a switch, turning on the lights. To solve this dilemma, I will simply redirect the switch to a more appropriate place.
