Just when you got your entire life online. You pay your bills there, serve content wirelessly, and Twitter like a madman. You’re living the 24/7 virtual dream and, BAM! Complete blackout. Apparently it could happen. The U.S. Government this week made an announcement in advance of North Korea’s nuclear tests that the rogue government has invented a “Super EMP” capable of taking down power grids across the United States. It’s my worst nightmare. An electro-magnetic pulse has long been the weapon of choice in Hollywood, but in real life it’s proved stubbornly difficult to produce. I practically went insane when my ISP went down for 8 days. How is a spoiled, techno-saavy Westerner like myself supposed to survive on books alone? It can’t be done I tell you. Now this may be the yellow cake uranium of the North Korean conflict or it may be a clear and present danger. The question is how can we ever know? Anyone close enough to the test to confirm it, isn’t going to be able to send cell phone images or even e-mail. Yikes!
