One hundred hours of despair

There are people who, if they’re not actually laughing off catastrophe, at least can deal with it without going to pieces.

I am not one of those.

    Wow, that is terrible, I’m so sorry you had such a long ordeal. I felt sorry for myself, being out of power for a mere 12 hours.

    There’s a bitter irony here. I watched a VICE News special last week, which reported that we are inches away from actually making contact with alien planets, so far have we developed our high-tech space gadgetry.

    Yet, we cannot weather a storm without putting people out of power for 100 hours?

    Could it be that we should try fixin’ stuff down HERE, before aiming for Mars?

    If everyone waited until “here” was perfect before doing anything else, we’d have eight billion people crammed into Africa’s Rift Valley wondering why the place is such a horrendous mess.
