    Wel, he's not the first to be confused as to the purposes of 'grounding.' Connect the two rods in some way, tie them to the service neutral, and they'll actually do some good.

    Two-wire ungrounded electrical system, he did that so he could "ground" the grounding-type receptacles.

    Mind you, I did not say he did it right, only that was his reason.
