Frightening thoughts about the Fall of the Modern Rome (that would be us)

Niall Ferguson posted this with the LA Times a week ago, but I just spotted it. Hopefully the collapse doesn't come before I have a chance to copy all my kids HI8 videotapes to DVD. That would be hard to do in a grid-down situation. Yes, I know, in a GDS I won't have electricity for the DVD player either, but Nay I say, with a few stashed solar cells, some AGM batteries and a couple of inverters, I intend to ride out any collapse watching movies and playing Wii with the kids. Even in a transition to 1800's farm life you've got to have some fun time right?  ;)
