That could overload and burn up if everything is running at the same time.

I seriously wouldnt risk it, but then again if its not running at the same time, your fine.

did you guys see the simpsons where they had a power overload because of air conditioners, and then homer plugged his santa thingy into the power outlet where there were like 10 splitters in it already (the orange thing in nates) and it took out the whole city's power.
