Re: FRANKENSTORM: The Mother Of All Snowicanes Is Barreling Towards NYC
It really just boils down to city mentality. People in the stix know how to get by without power and going to the grocery store for a few days to a couple weeks. People in large cities just assume what was there for them before a disaster will automatically be there immediately afterwards, and they (for the most part) have no sense of planning ahead.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
