    Maybe, then, you'll also enjoy one of my favorite old websites: http://www.exitmundi.nl/exitmundi.htm

    Communications are spotty for placing orders.
    Orders are trying to be placed simultaneously across the spotty comms...

    I think you get the drift.

    It's not simply the consumer power to homes. A universal power outage is very serious.
    Yeah, those all suck, but the real problem is if power isn't re-established to the world's nuclear power plants before the backup generators run out of fuel. There are something like 40 plants in this country alone which store their spent rods just like at Fukushima. Without power, they'll all melt down. That's my understanding anyway. You won't be much worried about your internet at that point.

    If you're not worried about internet, you've got bigger problems than nucular meltdown. Where the **** else are you gona get your post apocalyptic sweaty bbw biker chick p@wrn?

    I kinda like the idea of India with nukes. Pakistan would probably chill out a bit, and India would never get enough of its politicians to agree on one thing.

    Those two countries, combined, have plenty enough nukes to end all life on the planet, and both cultures tend to be somewhat fatalistic in the first place. Add to this water shortages and the disputed area of Kashmir being the source of much of the region's water. The Indian government has essentially said that one more bombing, like the one in Mumbai, and it's on. I wouldn't take that situation so lightly. I personally think it's one of the world's most dangerous tinder boxes.

    ..but let's all be freaked out that Iran may get a nuke, someday...

    Piss off a few religious Indian extremists (call Krishna a dick,) and you may get a protest. That rarely goes beyound manageable. That often culminates in complaints about intolerance. (Not ruling out acts of violence, but they seldom occur as far as I am aware.)

    Piss off fundamentalists in Iran, and something jihaddy will go down. Hard.

    I'd rather have the polite guy holding the nukes.

    Okay, well Pakistan has them too, and isn't too far off from becoming a failed state. I see your points, though.

    When you're talking about India and Pakistan, you're not talking about two cultures. India has 6 national parties and dozens of local ones, and the border with Pakistan touches 3 or 4 different Indian states.

    Add to this water shortages and the disputed area of Kashmir being the source of much of the region's water.
    India has land disputes with China too, but I doubt that will come to war either (but if it did, it'd be a huge deal).

    Yes, I understand that no one nation is just one culture...sorry if I worded that oddly. I hope both of you are correct, but I think you're downplaying the actual tension between those two nations.
