    I wish politicians would actually do something. Lead time on those transformers is well over a year and that was pre covid. A coordinated attack, solar emp, or solar flare could absolutely real havoc and kill a ton of Americans. We really need to start making and stockpiling critical infrastructure

    We do, but Iím maybe most curious about what they had to shoot and how many times. The fear from something like One Second After has been that low level EMP but if you can achieve the same effect at a smaller scale with just a drive by, thatís real concerning. And yet not at all surprising.

    Actually, that is why I brought it up. The fact that the presses first instinct is to make this an alphabet issue, rather than an attack on infrastructure shows how delusional they are. The other issue is that obviously a gun was used to cause the damage, but you don’t hear any discussion about firearms, just the alphabet issue.

    It's that simple.

    Really?
    You're trying to figure out who shot a transformer and no one guessed "Beer Fueled Adolescents?", they went straight to January 6th conservatives.
    Yeah, makes sense, let me know how that works out for you Sherlock.

    IIRC, a similar gunfire attack on a critical substation occurred in CA? If I also remember correctly, it was considered a highly improbable target that required knowledge and skill to successfully disable?

    So this wouldn’t be the first time this has happened. Somehow I just don’t see anti-gay rednecks killing their own power system to stick it to a drag show.
    What if this whole crusade's a charade?

    Yeah that was California, I believe they were also having wild fires at the time.
    I don't know how much "Skill" it would take. Seems like an awfully big target to hit. What do you shoot? Well, I would start with that thing that Humms a lot.

    I will again say "Beer Fueled Adolesants, but I'm an old party pooper.

    I donít know about drunk kids, Iím not sure it fits.

    Probably unrelated though maybe not, on Thursday there was a wave of school threats here as well. Something like 16 schools maybe. Weíre wondering if that was just a hoax because that seems to be a growing way for losers to get excited or if it was a test for emergency response times.

    I doubt itís all part of the same plan but hitting a school or two and then dropping the power grid would cause a lot of chaos.

    I live out in the sticks and I have seen this happen on a smaller scale a lot. For some reason people like to shoot at power lines and XFMRs.

    I don't discount teenagers or pinheads combined with a healthy dose of "I wonder what happens if I shoot that".
