Can you believe, last night my campus had a power outage? Its ironic considering that this university focuses on engineering discipline and yet power outages happens. They didn't even have the decency to give us a heads up on the power outage.
I was really annoyed when it happened last night, shortly after midnight. I was watching Ugly Betty and poof, there goes the power. I can imagine how frustrated other people were if they were doing some simulation work with their computer.
The thing I'm most concerned was the condition of my computer. Stupid power outages have been known to fried computer parts and alike. Thank goodness its working fine. Though the WIFI network is gone. Have to wait till tomorrow to complain to the IT department.
When the power outage happened, I could hear the students from the whole hostel compound were screaming, shouting and wailing away. Then they started burning fireworks and the sky lit up like it was Independence Day. I was enjoying the show from my vintage point.
Reminded me of the ancient China times when the solar eclipse happened. They would hit drums, make loud noises and burn fireworks to scare off the devil who ate the Sun.
Turn off the electricity and see the savagery of mankind.
