How does a dimmer switch on a light circuit work. Does it reduce the power or does it alternate off ond on or what?

I was giving others a chance

You should know better than that Suss..
It is a variable resistor which limits the voltage to the bulb thus making it dimmer... sort of like when you make statements about me...

In the days in history...

When US was the biggest car makers in the world they found that by making right hand drive to be driven on the right was cheaper than on the left so that is why you drive on the right. As we refused to change just to give Ford a few more bucks. But strange as it may seem us who drive on the left have fewer accidents per head of population than those who drive on the right. So I be happy to drive on the left and live than on the right and have a worse chance to be dead.
Anyways if you are in the centre lane of a 3 lane highway which side are you on?
