The **** is light pollution?
User avatar #35 to #33 - soupkittenagain (02/12/2014) [-]
It's when there are so many lights that the stars can't be seen.

Phone lines still carry small amounts of current in case of outages and residents needing to call for help.

It's why my parents keep a phone mounted to the kitchen wall.

And seeing as it was the 1990's, it can be assumed just about everyone had a landline.

for anyone wondering how they made the calls during a power outage I can only assume they did it on cordless cell/satellite phones and that 911 and the related emergency services attached to it have emergency generators for just such occasions
#15 to #4 - kanedam ONLINE (02/12/2014) [-]
dont you know the old phones...? the stationary ones back in the old days before mobile phones...

they didnt need electricity at the place you are because the system worked with very little energy and that was usually provided by the company through generators in such occasions.

>Massive Power Outage
>People calling 911
Weren't cell phones rare for the average person in 1990

Landlines are on different grids than electricity.

During a massive power outage in the 1990s everyone used their powerless phones to call a powerless 911 dispatch to freak out about stars. Seems legit

phone systems have battery back up good for 30 to 60 minutes to handle short term power outages, calls were made before batteries ran out

I want to be the very best,
Like no one ever was.
To protect them is my real test,
To train them is my cause.

I will travel across the galaxy,
Searching far and wide.
Each Human to understand
The power that's inside

Heretics, (gotta kill them all) its you and me
I know its my destiny
Humanity, oh, you're my best friend
In an Imperium we must defend
