Massive East Coast Power Outage!

In the USA and Canada, power has been knocked out over several states and provinces. Cause unknown as yet.

There's some possible info here.  Getting stuck in a pitch black NY subway tunnel doesn't sound like fun. :frown:

--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

Unless your a mugger or rapist and your victim has no gun.

Exactly, but how much use would a gun be in a pitch black tunnel crowded with hundreds of other people? Gives me the screaming meemies just thinking about it.

The muzzle flash should shed enough light.  :lol:

The difference is that their power shortage (if that's what you're refering to) was of their own making.

Has it been confirmed that it was caused by a fire?

What I found kind of funny was that as soon as it happened they were saying things to the effect of "We have no idea what happened but we're 100% sure it wasn't terrorism". Uh huh...
