Why would we run out of electricity?
We have been producing electricity for over 100 years now, during countless wars and crisis, and with many different methods. Sure there might be temporary blackouts locally, but a total, for ever, worldwide blackout? Not gonna happen.

EMPs, magnetic pole shift, solar flare....
It could happen... Remote chance but it could happen....

I Don't see a pole shift interfering with electricity production, the other two are real threats, but it will still only be local and temporary (and a good reason to have an old pre electronic car in your garage as a backup, together with sufficient amounts of gasoline, and some vital electronics and devices in a Faraday's cage for spare just in case).

I understand your reaction, I cannot explain it but I know that it will get disrupted.

Quote from NationalGeographic:
"Many facets of our lives depend on the Earth’s magnetic field, anchored by the North and South poles, from the electrical grid that powers our computers to the satellites that let us watch TV."

Anyway in a polar flip the ozone layer will disappear for a lot of years and we will get cooked or irradiated Smiley

But how?

Apparently, world had experienced a huge solar flare in around 660 BC (https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/environment/a26817934/solar-storm-greenland/), the size of "an electrical grid would be down for months if not years" and that was with earth magnetic field intact. The last event that was previously recorded was a famous Carrington event in 1856 (with no electrical grid present yet).

The movement of poles have an intermediate stage where magnetosphere becomes chaotic. See:
https://www.livescience.com/18426-earth-magnetic-poles-flip.html

Well, I guess that a combination of a largish flare and chaotic magnetosphere would be an ELE (extinction level event).
Hopefully, before that we would travel to the stars.

I'm well aware of the solar flares, it's the changing of the magnetic poles i don't see as any reason for alarm. I read a paper (can't find it now) that had looked into earlier changes and come to the conclusion that it did't really affect life on earth. And I don't see how it can possibly affect the production of electricity, they are not related.

Tl;dr questionnaires are shitty ways to collect data.

The questionnaire seemed to have been valid because if I take a ritalin or adderal as a non-ADHD person it's going to make me wide awake for like 8 hours.  So in order for it to make you fall asleep, you really do have some sort of ADHD.

or some other medical condition that ritalin is used to treat.

source: me. i take it for something else (documented by many tests and several MDs). and yes i can fall asleep on it.

EDIT this may not prove someone does NOT have ADHD, as the ADHD may be masked (and also even treated as a side effect of the ritalin) by the other condition for which someone is actually prescribed it for. i have never been formally diagnosed with ADHD.

These people are clueless.  There are three main religions.  Christianity is the ONLY all-inclusive, benign one out of those three.  The other two:  the evil cult of Judaism and militant Islam, are focused entirely on tribal warfare, killing or enslaving the outsiders who are not a part of your group, or otherwise treating them vastly different than your own group.  Both Judaism and Islam state it's perfectly fine to lie non-Muslims or Jews for instance.  It's also allowed for Jews to steal from 'goyim' and do other things.  Many Rabbi even state it's okay to steal a goyim's organs to benefit the life of a Jew.

Why do you think the Jews run the fucking human organ trafficking rings?  They're practicing exactly what they preach.  It's not even some random, non-religious, lunatic Jew doing it, it's the actual Rabbi themselves:

https://www.haaretz.com/israelis-exposed-in-organ-trafficking-1.5259773

I tend to ignore any bullshit comes out of ass mouth but I couldn't this time.

Christianity is as dirty as other two.

You act like you know so much yet you "forgot" to mention the crusades.

Here, you can educate yourself here for free.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusades

The church was sucking the blood of people before the French revolution in Europe. (maybe they still do, but not as much)

Fuck all religions.

Yes, but in a historical context the problems with religions didn't start until the monotheistic religions became popular. Before that there were no religious wars, a shitload of wars for other reasons, but religion wasn't one of them.

The crusades were a response to 400 years of muslim attacks. Muslims are literally the second worst problem in the world.

What about the land which the Christians took from Aborgines in Australia and Indians in America?

Suddenly it is silence.

There isn't any thievery about these things. You are either strong enough to defend yourself or not. It is as simple as that.

If Hitler was the winner, people would be worshiping him now.

the native australians lost their land the same way the indians did. People who were better than them killed them and took over. The end. Move along.
