Thanks Bill, most of that is familiar.

Here's the thing:
"Regardless of what you may plug in between each hot and the neutral there is still a path back through the other hot if there is a load connected to it."

So why then won't a 110 appliance run with just the hot connected, assuming an equally balanced load on the other phase? The way I see it, two hots with no return to ground from the appliances are just open switches and nothing happens.
