have heard. Yea, Sunday is the Superbowl, and that means almost every
television in the USA will be turned on all about the same time. That's
a lot of tv sets. Heck, a local bar just bought 3 more big screen tvs
just for the game.
Yea, there are a few people who are not interested in the football game,
and I am one of them. But I'll probably go to the local bar just for all
the free food they are going to have, which means I'll at least watch
the game's commercials, and learn which of the two teams I dont care
about, will win.
So far, we have almost every tv in the US turned on, but consider how
many electric cooking warmers will be in use, along with home and
business lights, refrigerators for all that beer, and ice making
machines, and a lot more power using devices....
I know it's possible for at least parts of the electric grid to fail.
Will it happen? I guess we will find out this Sunday.
But it's not just the electric grid we need to worry about. It's also
the sewer systems all over the country. When everyone flushes toilets
during halftime, there could be sewerage backups. I recall this has
actually occurred in the past in a few places.
I guess it's best to flush before the game...... Then wait till halftime
OR, just rent a porta potty for the backyard and use that....
After all, once you finish that half barrel of beer, you wont care where
you go, as long as there is toilet paper, and a flashlight.
And if everything fails, you might still be able to watch the game on
your smartphone, so charge it in advance of the game, and have plenty
spare batteries for your portable radios and flashlights.
THE END IS NEAR !!!
Will the Superbowl be THE END of technology? The answer is "Maybe", but
one thing for sure, it will be THE END of the football season....
