One of my closest friend's mom's died and the memorial service is today and she's in denial and didn't tell her best friend about any of it and now her best friend is freaking out and won't go because she thinks the other doesn't want her there and oh god what
I... I didn't do it.
<- he did it, I swear

Bought and assembled a new computer chair today. So much better than my old one. My neck has so much support I hardly know what to make of it.

I've gone down that road. And the massive pile of all my dishes says that maybe SurgicalSteel is on the right track.

When I had a dog he would totally freak out if the power went out. Even at like 2:00 in the morning, when all the lights were off anyway. There was just a click or something when appliances die that totally drove him insane.

90 minutes is usually okay. Blackouts happen in these stages for me:

- "Ah crap" stage: 0 minutes to 3 hours. All portable devices still working as necessary, sans internet, or maybe some internet on 3G.
- "Oh shit" stage: 3 hours to 5 hours. Laptops start dying. Quality of life degrades to nearest smartphone OS.
- "HELP ME" stage: 5 hours to 7 hours. iPods, iPads and their kin start dying. Entertainment is now officially lost.
- "FUUUUUUUUUU" stage: When mobiles start to die. Welcome to the dark ages.

Huh, ours seem to have their own network, so even when the whole country is out (generally if there's a hurricane) we still get service. But we generally have landlines anyway, because those don't need to be charged again.

... What's a landline? You mean those ancient telephones with cables coming out of them? That you have to stand next to?

Seriously, the miracle of fire seems to have been fully replaced by electricity. With that gone, and devices dying, lighting a fire doesn't actually improve much (well, it improves your health and chances of survival in the post-apocalyptic nightmare, but yeah). Then "xkcd" will be but another story to tell your grandchildren...

"we... we had these things, see. they allowed you to talk with anyone around the world, instantly."

That's actually an interesting thought... I wonder what the future would think when they dig up an ancient apple store, or a science lab, or a museum...
