After roaming around the EU and UK I've decided that the plugs we have here in the US are strictly inferior.
I look at a NEMA 5-15 receptacle and just think "if I plug something into this it's probably going to fall out."
In contrast a BS 1363 or CEE 7/3 receptacle makes such a more satisfying connection.
