    What's your favorite tea

    Favorite teas? Well, for me personally I would say: 1.) Earl grey 2.) Chai 3.) English Breakfast 4.) Orange pekoke 5.) green tea 6.) Chamomile (although I usually reserve this for when I have a sore throat or am sick, it is quite soothing) And that's all I can think of right now

    I had this (trivial) idea

    Okay, I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to prove, but it appears that in essence, you're implicitly assuming that there can be no absolute rules, so therefore, there must be an object that exists which violates some universal law. It looks like you've committed the fallacy of asserting...

    60 Hz in USA & my laptop

    Yeah in the US, it would be called a "reverse voltage converter", where you would plug the device into an american wall socket, and then just plug your (european) device into it.
