Northern California is slated for another round of mass blackouts as the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, or PG&E, has said they’ll turn off power to millions of people every time bad weather rolls through so their crappy antique power lines don’t get snapped and start another wildfire.

Because apparently, the only way to keep half the state from burning to the ground is to turn it into Little House on the Frickin’ Prairie. And yet, California still finds time to fine waiters for handing out plastic straws.
