of course this is obamas fault /sarc
Gonna be a real long ride home if every street light is treated as a 4 way stop.
of course this is bush's fault - obama
there. fixed it for you.
The more we centralize the grid, the safer we are, right?
Texas has our own grid.
Don't look now, but I think your grid is on fire!
a Keynesian would say that.
No, not Obama's fault, it is all KEYNES' fault! If it weren't for that old bastard, we'd be living in a land of milk and honey.
terrorists struck before 9/11/11! all alarms are silent, i'd go and check your gold stash, like, NOW!!!!!!
Looks like al Qaeda might have recruited some former Enron executives...
10 Years Later: Was Russia Behind 9/11?
Well given that the Russians warned us before time of shit going down, I'd say no.
A different source cites a ham radio operator saying two conventional plants are down, and LA Times reports San Onofe nuclear plant had two units go offline due to grid issues. There's claims it's affecting areas as far east as Phoenix, but I'm there and nothing noticable so far.
That shouldn't matter. Isn't California mandating alternative sources like solar and wind.
I'm hoping your being sarcastic. Solar and wind? Useless liberal babble.
What's their Motel 6 motto now?
...............and we'll leave the candle lit for 'ya!
In Lincoln's day, when a strong wind blew through, did everyone go out on the porch to see if the neighbors candles went out too?
as they used to say at the convent: "lights out at 10; candles out at 11"
"We also expect half the S&P will blame their missed earnings on the "Great SoCal blackout of 2011""
It should also make an appearance as a strawman for a future unexpected unemployment increase.
fuu fuu.... You got it, dude!The Street's next excuse!
Mysterious Tranistory Power Outage, Probably Fault of Bush Need QE3007
Energy payment check to Arizona from California bounced...
Fired up the teleprompters and bam, sucked up all the power.
Snakes....a snake probably crawled up into the power box shorting out the system. Happens all the time....mmm...maybe a racoon ....on second thought maybe a gopher.....or.....
So . .
"There's M*therf@cking Snakes on this M*therf@ching Power box!"
I hear that fried coon is good. Or not good, depending upon your point of view.
BTW Raccoon has 2 "c"s. As I've been told many times.
Maybe it was Gumby who caused the blackout?
It's called a Solar Flare. Get used to it, we're entering a huge cycle of Solar Activity.
Solar Cycle 24 is the weakest in 200 years. Sunspot number was only 60 yesterday. It should be 3 times that amount at this stage of the cycle as it is entering its maxima period.
I agree. Being socially active and having normal advocations is overrated. Have you considered bartending school?
Can't wait to hear the expert rhetoric from all the people that know shit about Power Distribution Systems. Always good for a laugh.
It's pretty obvious that the PDS in this case is experiencing a faulty Johnson rod somewhere within the grid.
Just a hunch on my part, which usually turns out to be correct in most of these situations.
I think you're right, but you may not know WHY. I've been a regular follower of that other website where they cover all this stuff.
It's obviously a false flag sabotage attack on the Johnson rod pre-subinertial magnotronic oscillator tubes.
If only Nixon had maintained gold convertibility, this would never have happened.
Nah, usually a squirrel. They probably forgot to install one of these:
A squirrel can foil any device!
currently working on the Racoon model...
I think you got me mixed up with that flying squirrel fella. This coon stays on the ground.
Probably copper thieves
Betcha some Great UFO photos start making to them sites... along with Dutchwhatever's HAARP radar radians, earthquakes, tsunamis and maybe even a Project Blue Beam Book of Revelations Appearance of God.Or maybe more Chinese missle launches!Or Homer Simpson asleep at the control panel, again... Ah, dreams of Marge with her blue hair down....Or maybe just a fried squirrel.
That's what happens when millions of people all try to change the channel at the same time!
Praying for my San Diego brothers and sisters in these trying times.....In San Diego.......where it's 80 degrees with a cool breeze and always sunny
Emergency power diverted to Lambeau field, kid rock brought the BIG speakers !
Jordan Sparks singing the National Anthem, yummy!
Jordan Sparks fucking up the National Anthem you mean. Why do singers feel they need to "make it their own" when singing the national anthem?
I'll second that motion!
Probably because she sings it a hundred times a year. Not saying it's right, just saying.
Better hold a congressional hearing. Give the blowhards some TV time.
Al Qaida or chinese hackers?
