    @iiii
    On Arrakis sandworm finds you. Then becomes you. Then you become the god emperor. Then after 10,000 years of rule you realize that humanity has become dependent on your prescience to the point where their evolution has stagnated and they will likely go extinct. Then you will intentionally fail to stop an assassination attempt so humanity will be forced to live without your omnipotent vision. Then you're left with a lingering suggestion a Butlerian Jihad could happen again and humanity should revert to primitavism.

    Big ass UPS.

    I used to have one weighing quarter of a ton under my dining room table, could keep everything working for several days.

    I remember when the street had a powercut lasting days, and our house was the only one in the street with the lights still on and the TV going. :-)

    Shouldn't we be using a more politically correct term to describe a loss of power..

    @Nanos it is politically correct. Everything is black because of lack of light.

    Maybe we need a new word, how about:

    Shanaze !

    I got the idea for the word from:

    Shouldn't it really be called lightout ?

    @Nanos I thought we all agreed to not create any new word after the whole "yeet" debacle... When did the council choose to ignore the previous decision?

    @Nanos the word "black" is not politically incorrect nor it is reffering to anything regarding a race in this context.

    @iiii

    I beg to differ since I went on a racial awareness course in a previous job where the entire topic for one class was to avoid using that word in anyway whatsoever !

    Anyhow, the connotations of powerless is there as well..

    Looks like one hot potato to me, and could cost someone their job for using it !

    @Jilano

    Oh I missed the "yeet" thing, what did that mean ?

    FX [ Tries to guess.. ]

    A person with smooth skin who is suspected of using removal chemicals ?

    A non-bearded person ?

    Oh wait, I mean, individual, since isn't "person" now on the banned list, since it has "son" in it..

    @Nanos that class was bullshit. Nuff said

    @Nanos if you loose your job because someone was triggered by innocent word "black" which is used for anything other than referring to race, you should be glad you're out of that shithole.

    @Nanos Haha, no worries. It was just a joke :)

    As for the meaning of "yeet" (past tense "yote", past participle "yoten"): "To discard an item at a high velocity".

    Source: https://urbandictionary.com/define....

    Regarding your previous comment, I'm pretty happy to live in a place where I can use the word "black" without issue. That whole "racial" thing going on across the pond seems like such a stupid thing.

    @iiii We went through several tutors teaching us, I think I stressed them out so much they kept leaving !

    I used to ask difficult questions and they would go all red in the face and look like they was about to explode, or have a heart attack..

    Such as, how do I describe a black coloured box with black writing on it that I can't read, without using the word black ?

    (Yes, we really had people that stupid they would write on black boxes with black pens !)

    (We also had people stupid enough to order black boxes as well..)

    (And no one smart enough to order white pens..)

    Trouble is, every place is getting like that now. :-(

    You could do with a google translate option so it can check everything you are about to say, to make sure it doesn't offend anyone at all.

    The old stat of only 2% of people talking in forums, is going to drop further at this rate..

    "Nice weather today?"

    "You climate denial fascist !"

    Not sure there are any safe subjects..

    "Hello?"

    "Harassment !"

    FX [ Ponders what to say.. ]

    "Arrest that man for a thought crime !"

    We already have people in prison for that. :-(

    Obviously, if someone asks you what you was thinking, never reply with anything !

    "My mind was a complete blank, Officer.."

    "You was having a complete what !"

    Yeah, better choose your words carefully in case someone doesn't quite hear them right..
