    Not quite as easy as that. While the phone equipment and network in the
    days of One Bell System, It Works, would last through just about anything
    imaginable, the network was NOT designed to be non-blocking.

    In other words, a typical telco switch would only allow, say, 5 percent of
    the subscribers to be on the phone at any one time. And calls between
    central offices required trunks which were similarly limited.

    There's a very detailed science in making these designs - trying to figure
    out what capacity a switch needs. Check out "erlang".

    the blackout 2003 is a good thing because the system
    needs to be tested now and then to fix it.

    the blackout 2003 is a good thing because the system
    needs to be tested now and then to fix it and the
    best thing about a blackout in the subway is having
    sex in the dark with someone you don't know.


    yes yes yes it's a good thing unsafe sex.
