Meh, some people are freaking out because they might have to go a couple of hours at a time without staring at a little glowing rectangle, if reading BS on social media doesn't get old to them, nothing will

yeah but they have changed the time frame from 4 hours to 7 day power cuts. 7 days must be bordering on the inconvenient to most people

I'm gonna have the shakes if it harms my viewing of Kingdom Season 4.

In all seriousness though I probably will be watching it sooner rather than later, hopefully I've already finished by the time a 7 day power cut happens.

Nothing Wrong with you doing that.


But so many avoid cash

If we get Power Cuts some shops
will open to sell what they can
but dealing only in Cash


That is sensible advice
I help many folks
but I do not need to post about it.
