Fight the Power


So, apparently a massive blackout has left a substantial portion of Florida without electricity, operational technology or the comforts of modern civilization.

Governor Charlie Crist credits FPL officials with "finally ending the era of sorcery" and returning things to normal.

They're considering a state-wide "simpsons-esque" A.C. solution....tie a fan to your cat's tail and wave it over a block of ice.

When I was a valet at the Dadeland Marriott (thanks to that sterling UM degree!) FPL folks from Turkey Point visited regularly for "staff events". We noticed that every one of their cars had an "evacuation plan" hanging from their rear views. Presumably, it was the GTFO list to be used if TP went meltdown.

I asked one of them how the *rest* of the South Dade community would be made aware that heading north would be a good idea. They just said "well, if you see us leaving in a hurry it might be a good idea to follow".

...and they tipped for shit too.

Some kind of screw up at Turkey Point, typical one day that power stations is going to leave everything south of Kendall glowing. :-)

ok, here's the truth of what really happened here in the sunshine state.

See, all of a sudden we had some lights flicker, the sky started to turn a slight greyish color.
We all went outside. I looked up and I saw this strange object.

I'm sheltered so I've never seen something like this before.

As I took a closer look at the bottom of this obget I see this strange neon sign flashing,

"Scottie where are you"??
It just kept flashing. I didn't know what to make of it.

Then as it started to hover away, I noticed this huge bumper sticker that said...
" Area 51, the best vacation spot on earth".

Then it hit me, holy crap...
So I called the media over to let them know what I had just witmessed...

I went on to tell them, " I think that this UFO counldn't find "Scottie" so they wen't over to Turkey point and just BORROWED so power for a little while to continue in their search.

They (the media) who wanted to try to say this was an act of terrorism, just looked at me like "I" was the freaking ALIEN....

Hey, I only call it how I see it.
