That's how much propane my genny uses to power the house up after a dump truck full of sand slid down my hilly street this morning and tore down a few power poles. Cry

They say most of your brain shuts down on the EvE forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.

And that's why in 1st world countries, the electricity runs through underground wires.

Then only digging sites can mess up your power supply

I dunno, the physics seemed a bit odd to me. Tried running in traffic once when I was playing as some kid and I didn't ragdoll around with those large pools of blood like in other games. Only thing that happened was that I got sent to this new level called the "ER" and they said I had broken a leg, whatever that meant.

Modern tech underground wires pfft. You must be referring to one of those neighborhoods where the houses are all near each other. My closest neighbor is 3000ft away. I'm lucky to even get cell service out here in the woods.

Thats the advantage of getting the sh!t bombed out of ones country: No ancient infrastructure left that dates back to the 19th century and is prone to breaking down every other month but only ever gets repaired instead of replaced because of political reasons....

Sounds like your failure is still being dependent on the grid.

In Idaho as well. You sneeze in the wrong direction and the power goes out.
