The first thing Mr Zebra and I did when we heard about the power cut in South America was come to the same conclusion... "hmm, are they testing out the population's response to a major power cut by trying it out on less developed countries?"

Not that we're cynics or anything. But as you say, there isn't just one power station involved in something like this.

If all the power was turned off, there would be mass panic. Not least, unfortunately, because a lot of people would be unable to access Facebook / Twitter and would therefore be unable to function as human beings.





We are... we've got some coal left over in our bunker from last winter... :D





Seconded... link would be nice, please @INT21

We did have. Inherited a box from my mother. But my wife threw them out a while ago.

When I mentioned 'belt and braces, my Dear', she misunderstood and told me if I ate less I wouldn't need them.

But paraffin has become so expensive that using paraffin lamps in an emergency is no longer viable.
