    Very cool picture. I got it in my e-mail today, thought I'd share it with the world.

    Tell me about it. Being in Toronto we got hit by it, it was hilarious to see what was shaking in the city. People literally did nothing. The didn't know what to do while others had parties and bbq's. I got to know all my neighbours and even 'heard' a kid crash his bike into a parked car on the road. The idiot was riding around at 10pm during a blackout. He deserved it.

    Sorry to say, that photo is fake. I had that emailed to me and I forwarded it on to some friends. One of my buddies sent me this link that shows the actual sattelite photos from the gov't. Looks like that pic is a good photoshop edit.

    I was gonna say, a complete black hole in those areas seemed a little fake before I actually knew. You would be able to see lights from cars or fires and such.
    Amazing to see how much electricity the major cities use compared to others. LA New York, Houstin, DC. Pretty cool
