Are you prepared for technology to fail?

H/T: WorldNet Daily
Prepared for WHAT?
Mr. Kubicek quite rightly points out that when a major piece of our technological world goes awry, it can affect us to the point of destroying our jobs and our lives.

 As we've learned only too well watching the devastation in the Gulf, however, technology can collapse at any moment, leaving us to discover just how dependent we have become in relying on something that is fundamentally not reliable.

Ever  had your cell phone freeze up when you wanted to call home for a dinner date with the spouse?  What about when you're calling from the scene of a wreck?  And you're the one in need of emergency service?  Technology, without adequate backup, can really mess up our day.

We go about trusting our lives to technology that is fundamentally not reliable.  Because it works so well AND as reliably as it does, we feel safe and secure in our ignorance.  So do I. 

Maybe we aren't as smart as we think we are.

God Bless Ya'll !
