Jeepguy if you go over to the wall and unplug the lamp and flip the plug over do you think the electric current is gonna go from ac to dc? Just sayin.... someone is feeding you a line of poo. If you flip the leads on a dc machine you can go from dcep to dcen or dcsp to dcrp, but that's not quite the same thing.

thats what i thought I as gonna hear thanks
