Everyone here wants to know what a bump in the road is. Here is a recepie.

1. Reduce oil supplies by 70%. 2. Stop 70% of air traffic. 3. Cut off water to 30 million people 4. Shut down the eastern power grid. 5. Grid-lock the rail system. 6. Shut down the banks for a month. 7. Clean out the food supply in 2 days. 8. Add as many lies as you can.

And SHAZAMM you have a bump in the road. (This is the lo-cal version of the recepie. The other version is to long.)

Compare this economy to 30 Nascar machines, 700 horsepower each, doing 190 three abreast at Daytona. Ok, now put a bump in the road.

Your recipe somehow forgot the Earth being hit by a large comet, an event *at least* as likely as the rest of your ingredients. And a comet would add a nice decorative cherry on the top, too.

And we can light the bump with solar flares, you know, just to screw-up some compliant electronic devices, and put a little more stress on the power grid. <:)=
