Speaking of...

Any and all streams that were cut off by the dome would be backing up and flowing around it. Seems to me the dome would be surrounded by a moat on the outside before long. By the same token, any streams inside the dome would continue to flow downhill. Before long, there should be a sizable lake on the interior of the down slope end of the dome.

I would. Some of the people think it's something the government did, like an experiment or whatever. If I thought that, I would not think it'd be permanent.

Your opinion. It would have bothered me a little if I didn't already know about it, and I know some people are more sensitive about spoilers than me.

I think any rational person would have no basis for thinking it's temporary or permanent.

And everybody would think it's one or the other.

I would think panic would not start to set in for most people until several days have passed.
I think we will have to agree to disagree. Really disagree.

All of this is just MHO of course...

* No way people think it's temporary. Nothing to make them think that. No sign of change, nothing to indicate an origin, nothing that creates a comfort level.

* The fact that people on the outside are ignoring them is a terrible sign. If I'm on the inside, that means the guv is hiding something. As someone said in one of these threads, why aren't there media tents setup, why aren't protesters everywhere, where the heck is Geraldo and the Brian Williams. The only reason they wouldn't be there is if the government is holding them back. Which means they don't know what it is.

* And finally, and again, because we're beating this one to death, people sink into a hoard & protect mentality really quickly when events like this happen. Ever been around a hurricane, flooding, gas shortage?

Nope, this ain't the way people act.

Here's the sentence....and, as I said, it reveals NOTHING. Not opinion -- fact

Please tell me what exactly is revealed? (and you can PM me if you think that would "ruin" it for others)

What was revealed was that something happened. Some might consider that very spoilerish for this show.

So you're saying it's a bad idea to cross the streams?

Some people react to snowstorms that way, but not everyone. I'm not even sure it's the majority. Nobody I know goes into panic mode when a snowstorm hits.

About the only thing that really goes into short supply around here when a snowstorm is predicted is rock salt and other sidewalk/driveway melting compounds.

Come visit Maryland. Try to find bread, milk, toilet paper or bottled water. Or batteries.

People here overdo it but it is NOT panic to realize that supplies will run low and to ration.

But you (and I) live in a place where major snowstorms are routine. It's the out-of-the-ordinary stuff that makes people freak out. Like a major snowstorm hitting DC, or a hurricane hitting New York City, or a dome hitting, well, anyplace.

And a dome would go beyond the panic that major weather events cause, into the realm of alien invasions, meteor strikes, and Y2K bugs...the kind of panic that happens when there's no way to know what the consequences are.

Not trying to defend the stupidity of this show. Just pointing out that not everyone panics about a snowstorm.

LOL! Now I understand your confusion. He removed the sentence I was referring to. If you look closely back at his post, you'll see:

You keep emphasizing "not everyone" as though someone made the claim that it was everyone.

No, the exact quote I used was

People, to me, seems all encompassing. That doesn't say SOME people, it says people.

People own cars means every person owns a car?
People ride the train to work means every person rides the train to work?
People watch Under the Dome means every person watches the show?
People live in Denver means that every person lives in Denver?
People panic in a snowstorm means that everyone panics in a snowstorm?

People is simply the informal plural of person.
