Um, he just wears cameras on his head. That doesn't make him a cyborg.
Ok, why doesn't that make him a cyborg? Obviously, not as hardcore as implanting machines/high tech in yourself, but it's a matter of degree not of nature.
If I stick a cellphone up my ass, will I be a cyborg too?
Holocaust deniers keep prattling on about how hard it would be to incinerate 6 million Jews.
Having seen a couple of posts on here alluding to the same theory (that is, cremating 6 million Jews during the Holocaust is implausible) I decided to do a couple of calculations.
Approximately 70% of all deaths in the UK currently result in a cremation: http://www.salford.gov.uk/cremation.htm . In 2010 there were 493,000 deaths in England and Wales (UK minus Scotland): http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/vsob1/mortality-statistics--deaths-registered-in-england-and-wales--series-dr-/2010/stb-deaths-by-cause-2010.html . 493,000 x 70% = 345,000 cremations in the England and Wales, in 2010.
If you multiply 345,000 cremations per year by the 6 year duration of World War 2, that means in 6 years, as a matter of routine there are at least 2 million cremations in the UK. It stands to reason that a regime with control over the entire industrial output of a major country could manage to cremate 6 million people in a couple of years.
Capers, cous-cous and dog food.
It was difficult to follow the fight, as it was shot in 'extreme shakeycam' form from the mobile phone POV. I probably misinterpreted the outcome.
What happened to Generator Man's wife? She seemed to disappear, probably around the point I left the room to make a cup of national-grid-heated tea.
I would guess from her disappearance from the screen, the fact that he is with one child and the arguments leading up to that scene that she has gone elsewhere either temporarily or permanently. It's not made clear, although considering the only source of information we have is (according to the premise) footage shot by him, it wouldn't be.
How do you suggest the control room communicate with all the various power stations and electricity consumers across the country then?
Perhaps, I don't know, they could piggyback a communication network onto the physical power network they own, airgapped from the internet? Maybe they could call each other on the phone like they did for the first ~80 years of the grid's existence?
The middle-class survivalist, "generator man" as many have been calling him was the man who went to politely loot the supermarket at the end. And it was him who did the killing, climaxing at the moment the power came back on, with the now recording CCTV being shown capturing him at that moment with blood on his hands. Some noted the irony of capers and cous-cous being the only foods left there. It was a nice touch.
Er, yeah, 'spoiler alert' I guess
