Ive lived in countries that have regular power failures from a few hours up too a few days and even a country that's used to it barely functions if the power goes out. if this would happen. what the hell would happen to the online world? nothing good thats for sure. a bigger problem would be getting food to everyone depending on how long it takes to get the power grids back up.
