Hmmm.. We lost power to a University campus because a duck flew into a
transformer. Does that trump bees in a server?
Why is a duck outage worse than a squirrel outage?
Better, if anything - the crisped remains are tastier.
Apparently the main cause of power outages in Malawi is hippos
getting stuck in the hydroelectric intakes.
 "Apparently" being the keyword that identifies factoids as heard
from a man in the pub, 93.2% of which are complete bollocks, but in
this case the man in the pub was my university tutor and the course
was electrical engineering, so it may be slightly more reliable than
the average apparently. Apparently.
But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
