Are you participating in a fancy dress competition?

This is the Blackout Suit, and I am its inventor.

The Blackout what? Is this inspired by some new superhero?

Not a superhero, but a super problem. I have made this suit to combat national power grid failures, which are occurring way too often. And it's brimming with features!

Really? Tell me more.

To begin with, the Blackout suit comes fitted with a cooling system, so that you can sleep peacefully even after the inverter conks out. It also has a number of small and big lights so that you don't run into furniture in the dark. Say goodbye to traffic jams and stuck Metro trains with the jet propulsion system. I have also provided a couple of plug points so that you can charge your phone and laptop!

That's awesome! Can I try it on?

I am afraid you can't. I couldn't charge it, as two of the national grids collapsed once again today morning.

Do say: We're just whistling in the dark.

Don't say: With great power comes great responsibility.
