I'm not sure if you guys have heard, but the entire city of San Diego, CA and most of the surrounding area is completely without power and will be until at least tomorrow morning. I heard the number of people without power go from 64,000 to 1.4 million to 5 million. The cause is still under investigation, but right now it looks like one guy fucked up a little bit and ended up triggering this massive outage. In a just and sane universe, the magnitude of a fuckup would be relatively proportional to the magnitude of the consequences. However, we know that the universe is neither just nor sane. Sometimes, tiny fuckups lead to massive consequences. One slip of the condom? 18+ years of child support. Alternatively, many massive fuckups have no consequences for the person at all, and they come out smelling like a rose. FOCUS: When have you experienced a relatively minor fuckup that turns into major consequences? ANTI FOCUS: When have you (or someone you know) fucked up something huge with seemingly unavoidable end-of-the-world consequences that turned out to be no big deal?
