Self defense doesn't make sense to some people that have never had a family member raped and killed in front of them while a knife is being held to
their neck. Maybe they just watched too many princess movies as a kid, maybe they only see the good in humanity which is a good thing...for normal
peaceful life. But the world doesn't always stay peaceful and the elites work so hard to bring death, division and oppression. How many Americans
have experienced being hungry for 2 days and all they got is a gun. Bad combo.
I had once read about a major sun flare headed towards earth. I called my brother and told him about it that very night because it was the last thing
i was reading about. The next day the power went out in San Diego for about a day. I wondered if some guy in Yuma really made that happen like the
media told us.
When the power went out i was sitting at a AAA in Encinitas (33rd parallel). Well the lights went out, computers went down in an instant. All the
traffic lights were reset and the roads were all backed up because every light turned into a four way stop sign. It took a long time just to get 2
I'd say 7 out of 10 people were using the event to get to know the neighbors, break out alcohol, party etc.. I always said there would be a San Diego
baby boom exactly 9 months later. Nobody seemed that worried. Those 2 or 3 people out of 10 that did care, they were buying up as much as they could
at the grocery store and it was going dry real quick. The only water left was the water in the baby section and it was almost totally gone.
I had a sick feeling the whole thing was some sick test to gauge how the southwest responds to a power outage. I grade most people a D+ just like our
power grid infrastructure is graded D+ and that is generous.
I noticed a lot of cars were already abandoned around the gas stations! They had gotten to the gas stations and gas pumps run off electricity. You'd
think they would have generators and pump at a premium but NO. No electricity no gas. No gas means tens of thousands of big rigs won't be bringing
food or supplies.
People take power for granted. With power you can heat water and people in apartments don't always have wood to burn. Do you know how demoralizing it
is to not have warm water for a while? Do you know how many people live 2 or 3 days from not having toilet paper?
Diabetes medicine? You want to talk about zombies? Just imagine millions of people on anti depressants coming down from years of medication at the
same time. Wow. Think about all the poopy butts without TP. All the people in apartments who don't even own a bucket or have extra trash bags.
But if you can generate power you run stuff. You can refill batteries for food, water, ammo, shelter, etc...
You can trade power for TP, lighters, alcohol, medicine...or whats left of it.
My idea is this. There are going to be millions of abandoned cars everywhere in a blackout. I mean just a few hours and there were already people
leaving their cars by the road, just imagine no gas for a week.
If you could streamline the process of pulling alternators and batteries and putting them in series...Linking up bikes, horses, cows, whatever needs
exercise. Figure out how to run alternators on different gears so you can put a different gear on depending on whats cranking it. Hook um up to bikes,
row machines, homemade windmills, manual hand cranks, etc.. There are gonna be a lot of males without work and they are going to need a little
exercise to calm the nerves. Horses need exercise and ranch help won't be around in some cases. There has gotta be some pretty cool things you can do
with parts from these cars. Just an idea. People with butane are probably going to run out. Generators will be useless for most because there will be
no gas. Knowing how to convert generators to run off vegetable grease. Electrolysis.
People will want power for their cell phones so that they can play games and use apps to pass time. Cell phones can run on private com networks they
dont have to run on only your carriers network. Solar powered wifi wi/max repeaters. Analog to digital. Digital to analog. digital to digital.
Power outages are not fun. It makes you realize that societies that don't have power are always being made fun of by the West. But guess what? When
the power goes out being dependent on power and electricity is a MAJOR WEAKNESS like we've yet to fully see.
I'm just ranting but it was fun, thanks for reading. Whats your complimentary ideas?
