Default Power outage coverup?

Had anyone seen, that the power company admitted that there was a fire, and the mayor denies this fact. Saying it was just smoke stack discharge after shutting down. BS!
Also saying that there is no terrorist implications....(may or may not be true)

Hmmm..
No fly zone / 911 no fly
No power in iraq / No power in New York.

Ofcourse I would have nothing to go on, if not for the official acceptance of a fire as the cause by the actual power company.


If you dont believe in propaganda covers, just remember the space shuttle, and how they screamed up and down at first, that it wasnt the foam hitting the wing, then later we find that it was evidently true.

The burn-off is a normal step in shutting down the plant.

There was never any "fire" that shutdown the plant, it was an overload and the plant shutdown automatically. The shutdown caused a chain-reaction.

Wrong cold fury,

I saw the official announcment admitting it.
They had also had a previous fire, about a year ago.

If this is no longer the official announcment, then there is definatley a coverup. period! I dont know how much more clear I can be about the statement I saw.

It may be just, to ease people from the thought that terrorists may have started the fire. IN which case this is a common procedure, to prevent mass hysteria. But everyone must question authority in these cases!

Will you just take your patently ridiculous conspiracy theories somewhere else. Ever consider the report you originally saw may have been wrong? Of course not, because the entire universe is out to get YOU aren't they. I suppose this is all Prime95's fault anyway.

Note to Moderator: Can we not simply ban this nutcase?

It wasn't terrorists, it was all those cruchers doing Prime95. It seems over 10,000 new crunchers started up 5 machines apeice.

I did hear that the FBI has now listed Prime95 on the Top 10 Most Wanted Bulletin.

Watch out, George, they're coming after you.

Apparently there were several thousands of computers attached to the Niagara-Mohawk power grid which were running Prime95, and when one of them found the 40th known Mersenne prime a couple of hours ago and attmepted to report it to the PrimeNet server, it set off a chain reaction of events which brought the entire grid down. George the terrorist is at again - now Homeland Security will shut down GIMPS, confiscate everyone's hard drives, and make searching for M-primes illegal, thus we'll NEVER know what M#40 was.

But since Pi, erm, I mean TT, n is able to post, I guess not all parts of the Northeast of the U.S. are blacked out.

I testify to the truth, in the name of GOD.
Hard to believe that their official announcment was some accidental admition. (I did see them putting out the fire with hoses)


BTW nitro,
If we were in the same room, and you called me a nutcase, I probably would have beat you, right where you stood.

ALPHA male out.

There is an ALPHA male here, and it ain't you.

I like the results you are getting with your project and when I get enough machines, I'll throw some your way, but you need to chill out.

But WHICH "GOD" are you testifying in the name of, and does he or she approve of this testimony?
