"Defense Secretary Rumsfeld says we need to protect against a 'space Pearl Harbor,'" he says. "But we're still the dominant power there."
I can see it now...
SPACE PEARL HARBOR: A MICHAEL BAY FILM, STARRING BEN AFFLECK.
You know, combining Armageddon and Pearl Harbor.
Pouya, write your next comic about SPACE PEARL HARBOR.
By the way, I was out of power for seven days straight; finally got it back on Wednesday. Damn Buffalo weather. Grr.
Interestingly; we've had many worse snowstorms than that before, but none has ever knocked out 95% of the power in the county before. It's gotten me thinking a lot about evolution; the reason we lost power so large and so long was because the snow caused around 70% of the trees in the county to sustain heavy damage. Since this storm happened so early in the season that the trees all still had leaves on them, and the combined weight of the snow and the leaves was just way too much to handle.
So that's interesting; tree's evolved in the northern/southern areas of the world to shed their leaves to avoid this sort of thing?
