how not to save money

i hate it when i see people defeating ground.  pastor is a great example of doing this.  I was at quiks and qoutes the other day and you just had to see this for yourself- atleast three powerstrips strung up to the center display all on one of those flat twowire extension cords with three ends on the tip and at least 5 ground lifts.  I mean the only reason they put that third prong on outlets is to make you buy a new extension cord profiting the company that makes the cords.  right?
