Hi Readers & posters

Just return home from a few days away was going through my emails and this investment advisers who normally give stock market advise called the motley fool have warning I would only expect on this site here the email

URGENT WARNING from the financial resource The Economist calls "an ethical oasis"...
"Inevitable" Disaster Erases 117 Years of American Progress

On a hot summer day, just after the sun reaches its highest point, it begins...

Within minutes, cell phones go silent. Oil refineries shut down. Crowded flights are grounded. Assembly lines grind to a halt. America is paralyzed. But not by a surprise act of terrorism. Or a devastating hurricane. No, America is brought to its knees by a tiny flaw hidden somewhere in a 250,000-mile-long labyrinth of wires that twist through every city in the U.S.

Impossible? According to scientists from Carnegie Mellon, this catastrophe is "inevitable."

How you prepare now could mean the difference between quietly profiting in 2010 or falling victim to this wealth-destroying event.

Because unless you have an inside connection on Wall Street, you won't be able to sell a single share of stock once this disaster strikes!

Read on to learn about what steps The Motley Fool is taking and 3 timely opportunities that could make you very wealthy...

Dear Fellow Investor,

The fate of everything that matters to you -- how you make a living, where you keep your money, and even the safety of your family -- depends upon century-old wires that were installed during the Taft administration.

I realize that in this age of smartphones and satellites, it may be hard to believe that our society could unravel because of something built so long ago.

Truth is, this threat is very real.

FEMA admits these wires will fail, setting off a disaster that can strike "anywhere and anyone." (In fact, it recommends you stockpile nonperishable food and water right now!)

This crisis forced California to declare a state of emergency.

And President Barack Obama calls it "a matter of national security."

I promise, once you hear what I have to say, you'll know everything about this coming disaster... how to prepare for it... and even how you can quietly make a bundle before it strikes!

But a word of warning: As you'll see just ahead, you don't have much time. America's most forward-thinking investors are speeding their preparations for...
The darkest day in American history

The warning signs have been ignored for decades...

Now it's too late.

This network of fragile wires will melt down, robbing you of everything you depend on... even clean drinking water!

It will essentially be like living in the year 1893 (the year these wires were first stretched across America). You'll be afforded none of the benefits of the mass industrialization we've enjoyed over the past 117 years.

As TIME magazine reports, all our "devices of amazing technological sophistication" will instantly be rendered useless.

Just imagine life without necessities like heating and air-conditioning, refrigeration, or indoor plumbing...

Not a pretty picture, is it? I hope you've been watching Survivorman on the Discovery Channel, because on the darkest day in American history, you'll need survival skills to make it through this coming crisis.

Prepare now. Because the clock is running...
A ticking time bomb

All though investment companies send out fearmongering emails like this...

not reality based...

Wow.................something "else" to concern about. LOL

Honestly though, if this does happen, I wonder how many people will call this a "Terrorist" activity, rather than a normal catastrophe?

It makes sense centuries old wires could fail and there is a need to replace them.

Why did this guy not also tell us how to profit from this impending disaster? If I have a bit of money to invest now, he forgot to tell me how to make my fortune off of this disaster coming up so soon!

Ah technology... its the best thing in the world when it works and when it doesn't it is the bane our existence. I can't say I'm surprised but I hope this is inaccurate only for the sake of everyone living in America.

If not.. well I suppose if our technological infrastructure is still running here in Canada you can come hang out until its fixed. I'd gladly put up anyone needing a place to stay.

Hopefully this is just overblown hysteria but you all know the saying, "Hope for the best. Plan for the worst."

Sounds like a scheme Gordon Brown would say for a reason for introducing his 50p tax increase on phone lines for maintenance and cable upgrades to support broadband in the UK.

Hope he doesnt read this site as this is something that would give him ideas.

I would take this with a pinch of salt. The economy will fall for other reason if it does.

Just look at what happened in 1965, when our electronics technology consisted of transistor radios. This site has info on the electrical blackouts of '65 and '77. Think what could happen now..... what if we got our satellites slammed by a solar flare? Check this

The OP forgot to tell us where to buy the book for $19.95 and $3.95 for shipping and handling. The post kind of sounded too commerical and apocalyptic.

I wouldn't worry so much about the economy failing(mine feels like it already has) as much as rioting and looting. I think we would see rioting and looting break out if the traffic lights in a major city were turned off for a day.
