You know when you are in the hands of “the incompetent omnipotent”. The knowledge comes from experiencing, again and again, that the lights are still on, when they should be off, or vice versa. Why do I say “omnipotent”? Notice that I do not question “incompetent”. I say “omnipotent” because they who have the power DO switch it off, or back on, regardless of what they published in their schedules, regardless of the story in the press releases, totally free of any sanction for cutting us off at the knees.
