    Cape Town, South Africa is running out of water. And conditions there are really fucking bad.

    As of yesterday, their "Day Zero" -- the day when all the municipal taps are shut off -- is May 11.

    And this kind of crisis might be coming to a city near you.

    Focus: Discuss what you think is going to happen in Cape Town. Will they really run out of water, or will their efforts (like desalination plants) be enough to stave it off?

    Alt. Focus: What would you do if you lived there? Stick it out and hope it doesn't come to pass? Arm yourself to the teeth and hope it does come to pass so you can murder the fuck outta your neighbor because fuck him and his swimming pool? Slum it in another city? Buy (or steal) a boat and get the fuck away from dodge?
