Lance Hatler, was irritated with the "measly 60 Hz" that the electric company fed into his house and decided he could do better. "I thought my overclocked computer system is pretty sweet. Why can't I apply the same principle to my house? I mean besides the fire code," questioned Hatler.
After several trips to the emergency room for massive electric shocks, Hatler's house now runs at a blazing fast 900 MHz. Attempts to run the house even faster caused a bit of structural instability and a few minor fires. “My heart stopped one time, but the thought of shredding two by fours in my garbage disposal got the blood pumping again,” Hatler recounted.
why do we use 60hz?

Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but if I remember correctly 60 Hz was chosen because it was a multiple of 10 of the 60 seconds per minute, 60 minutes per hour timekeeping standard. The idea was that all power generation would adhere to this standard, and make interconnecting power generation systems easier on the engineering types.
