If you believe in Murphy’s Law, anything can go wrong, will go wrong. Pessimistic as it might sound, this actually prepared you for any doom days scenario. Living by this law, you will be the ultimate survivor.

In order to create a full on crisis in a supermarket, Ip arranged to have all the system that makes the operation of a supermarket seamless to be hacked. Once hacked, nothing works as expected anymore. When facing this adversity, customers who take it for granted are unexpectedly challenged in a massive way.

Societies are structured by the authorities with maximising efficiency at its core. Not matter how much resources the authority has, it can never handle a full fletch reaction by the population.
