Pretty sure my place falls into the exception category. Built in 1932 or 
so. I do wonder if it didn't have electricity when built. There's a lamp 
in the dining room that was very obviously a gas lamp converted to 
electric later on.

I'll have to take some pictures of the original electrical panel. It's 
very old. Over the years, it's been added onto. There's an older fuse 
box with the screw in fuses, a modern fuse box, and a separate circuit 
for the dryer.

Save for the bathroom and the kitchen, the whole house is 2 prong 
outlets. I'm looking into getting a couple 3 prong outlets installed 
around the house just for the sake of convenience and safety.
