    Government secrets?
    Yeah, this is the last place Paula Broadwell would've looked.

    Good place to hide your condoms and Maryjane from Mom. Not big enough to hide your XXX rated DVDs in it though...

    Are the 3 prong plugs really upside down?

    ^ No they aren't if the pic on Amazon is correct, though that pic also suggests that it's a yellowed color that may not match your other outlets or faceplates. I suppose you could paint it to come nearer to a match.

    The ground pin is supposed to be on top. If the plug is slightly wiggled out of the receptacle, and something conductive falls into the gap, you'd rather it contact the ground pin, wouldn't you? There are numerous accounts of receptacles mounted improperly, with objects (paperclips, baking pans) falling into the gap and bridging hot to neutral, resulting in an arc flash and potential fire.

    Addendum to the above: This happened to my father, while installing aluminum siding. The extension cord had pulled slightly out of the socket on the side of the house, and a piece of loose siding came to rest against the hot pin. It electrified the whole side of the house, including the metal ladder leaning against it. The ladder feet had rubber pads on the bottom, so there was no path to ground, and nothing happened...

    ...until he went to step off the ladder!

    Whether the ground pin should be up or not depends on the situation. For example many wall wart power supplies are polarized and if the ground pin is on top they will hang upside down and potentially pull out of the outlet a bit, also creating a safety hazzard by exposing the blades but with no ground pin to shield them from falling objects.

    However many feel that for esthetic reasons all outlets in the same room should be oriented the same way.

    Outlets on the side of a house, being an outdoor environment should have an outlet box to both shield them from the weather when not in use, and provide a flap that is raised to shield the plug from anything falling on it.
