Same as my place. Anything with a ground has no ground wire attached in most my outlets. 3 generations of families have lived in this house since it was equipped with electricity, and all of them died of old age. Just sayin ....
My bathroom has a non-GFCI outlet with the ground facing up. It annoys me every time I go to the can, and has for the past 9 years.
Makes the cord bend ... which I would think is more dangerous than the 1 in 1 BILLION chance something falls on the prongs. Bend a cord like that for long, and the jacketing cracks - now you have exposed wires. Puts unnecessary stress on the cord, IMHO.
While codes have good intentions, most of them are based in government reality - the same reality most hippies enjoyed at Woodstock '69 after eating the brown acid that the nice man warned about. I prefer to live my life in just plain REALITY.
