THE BIG BLACKOUT

No new pictures today, except a few rantings.

Anyway, there was a major blackout in Sabah (Monday, 21st April 2008, around 6.15pm), being that 90% of the state was engulfed in total darkness for more than six hours. I was worried when none of my family members picked up the phone/hp. You can guess that as a daughter, sister, and a cartoonist (in a way), my mind started playing unwanted scenarios in my head. I'm just glad that my mom called me back an hour later. It turned out that my family members were all hanging out on the porch.

So today, I was reading the news again and it pretty much explains the big blackout. Some hooligans removed steel pieces from a 132kV transmission tower at Suang Parai, causing it to collapse which, quote: "tripping all SESB and independent power plants connected to the various grids". For all the thieves' trouble, they can sell those scraps for only RM40. What about the loss the state suffered?

I hate THIEVES. A lot. They have no regard of how hard you worked for what you have. They never even considered the consequences that followed, be it to themselves or to others. Is it that hard to lift a finger to find an honest job, or at least wait until you're able to afford what you want (I can't forgive those stupid kids who stole my brother's PS2 and my stacks of comics)? I hope those stupids would soon be caught and punished. Or Karma will get back at them.
