OMG... you guys dont really thing that they would shut the power down nationwide? do you?
Thats just ridiculous
Its a DRILL, as in a SIMULATED EVENT..
Do you guys also think people are setting fires to buildings when they do fire drills?
Most of us know this is a simulated event.. but you do not have drills for things that can't happen.
Too much in the media about it happening eventually.. better to be prepared than a beggar when/if it happens at some point.
I'm not Anti-American, In fact I am not anti anything...But you guys? You are FARRRRRRRRRR too paranoid for your own good, in fact your paranoia affects the world!!! FFS, live a little, get used to the reality, there is danger, but you can't predict the unpredictable, you can only deal with it once it happens. So stop messing your kids up with fear of the future, stop making everybody focus on danger when we have a life to live. FOR GOD'S SAKE!!!
Speaking of reigning in stupidity...
Any stop to look who is running the drill? It is NERC a non profit group. This only involves the government as outside players and evaluators.
There will be no power outages. That is just stupid.
To an outsider, this drill would look very boring and tedious.
It just occurred to me what it would look like to see the power go out everywhere from space.
Realizing how many lives would be affected it would be pretty disturbing, yet beautiful to see the night side of Earth in it's natural state.
I was trying to figure out what Aton WIlliams was wearing?
Looked like a 100 lb test guitar strap. lol.
His advice was sound if beyond cursory - food , water - get some!
FOX viewers will die by the millions if they're relying on that network for survival information.
That whole excuse about how "every system can be brought down because it's online"

Never happen, this would actually make us all know we can survive without the government. They will not let this outage go past a certain point. The government doesn't want to take two steps backwards on their brainwashing.
