Tyler Durden's picture

The good news is that no workers are trapped. The bad news is that between the 14th Street transformer explosion and the flooding and damage elsewhere, there are 670,000 people without power and over 230,000 of them are in Manhattan.

Any word yet on the Feds 'gold' reserves?

When they go to dry the tungsten it's best if they do it at low heat to avoid any tungsten chloride "rust" from exposure to the chlorine in the seawater...

How are things over at 200 West Street?  I walked by recently but didn't see any signs to indicate who's in there...

What is this I'm hearing on CNBC, a Nassau County Exec saying not even boiling water will make it safe?

I can just imagine all the poopage floating around all over.

I'm gettin' a real bad feelin' about all this....

No worries, doesn't U-238 "go away" when you boil your water?

Or is this the reason for the Zombie drill in CA? Radioactive dog/people/pigeon poop all mixed together with microorganisms and various radioactive material and infecting humans?

Sandy has also taken down numerous servers.  Data is being lost at alarming rates.

Expect evidence against JPig and other banksters to be conveniently wiped out by Sandy.

Check this video out.

4 minutes of exploding transformers all across Manhatten.

That's 4 minutes of explosive flashes going off that will remind you off shock and awe 'Baghdad Style".

Big big big problem. Good luck Con Ed!

Those explosions seem timed. They were engineered to blow up. Anyone in NYC and its surroundings who has not escaped the place will be very, very sorry in the days to come.

The looters are getting ready for the rain to stop. Good luck. 22 LR are quite, the more noise you make the more you draw attention to your location.

No one is getting out to the suburbs, either.  There are trees down every half mile across Connecticut from what I can tell.  Being prepared is key, though.  Gotta go tend to the generator and a million other things.  Will double check the 25 round magazines just in case....TTYL.  God bless all!

Psst, Wussies. Try going without power for 12 days in the Texas summer when Ike rolled through the center of Houston

My sister went to King's Point (as did her husband). What my Dad told me tonight is that she said NYC basically dumps raw sewage out in the Atlantic. They have been extending the dump pipes for years. He said it was 200 miles out or something crazy like that. Apparently only "in recent years" did they start treatment facilities and such. Anyway, she said that as you sailed into NY, you could see the ocean change colors.

If you boil shit, you have shit soup; still no good to drink. Thus, the comment about boiling water upthread.

Anecdotal and for what its worth.

Regards,

Cooter

So there is something to be said about 'Eat Shit & Die,' right? 

May the Greedy enjoy a feast!

Note to self:  8 million people living in the same spot for generations may create a few issues.

Fish away!  Torpedo away.  Now, now, drop.  Das Boot.

I thought the Slurpees and Big Gulps would kill us.    This country is filled with real idiots.  We build these huge cities next to major rivers and the ocean and we expect that things like this do not happen. New Orleans is total insanity.

It is easier to make up global warming fantasies to cheat people than to use common sense and not build right next to rivers.  The Dutch can do it but the subhumans in this country have no clue.

That's it! River-dwelling poop zombies!

I have a sister in Howard Beach, Queens. Basement flooded up to the rafters, and both cars under water.

No sure why womeone would have junked that report...but...whatever.

 

Prayers for your sister.

It wasn't me but perhaps it was the use of rafter instead of floor joist.

Rafter noun 1. any of a series of timbers or the like, usually having a pronounced slope, for supporting the sheathing and covering of a roof.

now is the time to introduce that geo-engineering legislation we've been waiting for

come on, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment -- let's get to work

you'll especially like the testimony of p rasch

I think it is critical to distinguish between “small scale field studies” where we might introduce some particles into the atmosphere over such a small scale that they would have negligible climate impact, and “full scale deployment” where we expect to actually have a climate impact. Field studies might try to induce a deliberate change to some feature of the earth system at a level with a negligible impact on the climate, but the change would allow us to detect a response in a component important to climate.

If you've got ED there's not much to hold.

looks like they need a bailout.

ED, wil be fine, once they start selling information to the banks to be packaged into derivatives (don't tell me you didn't know that's the reason for the smart grid)

and maybe you didn't know all those cell tower pulses (and all the rest of them) will be harvested and sold back as power? Utilities are a safe bet:

Hmmm... a week without power.

What could possibly go wrong? Right?

Reserves of hollow point ammunition are sufficient. Nothing can go wrong.

Down to their last 400 million .40 rounds....hope they have some .357 rounds in reserve.

Leading indicator:

State of shelves with Doritos, Hostress HoHos, Mad Dog 20/20, malt liquor and Kools in the South Bronx.

 

ZerOhead's picture

Those emptying shelves will be like a doomsday clock... tick-tick-tocking down to bloody revolution.

Won't help none that TV's and other amusing electronic devices will be out as well...

knukles's picture

Ever so bloody right on that, mate.
Do you realize that during the Arab Springs, it was when the social medias were turned off that the people, no longer able to sit at home and commiserate about the nasty state of the world, took to the street to engage with their peers and Viol-i-fuckin-a what happens?

A whole bunch of angry fuckers gettin' angrier by the moment, decidin' to do sumptin' 'bout it!

 

I'm a gettin' a real bad feelin' about this all of a sudden....
What with the elections and all....

Real bad images (not of sugar plumbs) dancin' about in my head...

ZerOhead's picture

Reading my mind.

If things start to get ugly the temperature under Obama's ass will likely cause a fusion (over) reaction. No telling what is about to happen but Romney who will smell the electoral blood in the water is unlikely to make things better.

Biggest demand during 1st week of floods:

1. Nappies (that's Diapers for you Yanks)
2. Tooth Brushes & Tooth Paste
3. Bottled water
4. Showers

People usually always have about a week of food in the kitchen.

Us Yanks, (thats americans for you inside of the US) aren't allowed to use the word nappy.
