Compare one some day, and you'll notice that while it's not possible to power a kettle from your computer's power supply lead (the plug won't fit, and the fuse would blow more or less immediately) it is certainly possible to power a PC from a kettle lead. If you do this, it will not be correctly fused, leading to an increased risk of fire.
It's not a kettle lead. Grngh!
