An EMF event would accomplish what bin laden wanted to do. We would all be quickly makin our own gardens if our electonics were destroyed. The old time cars would be the only motors working, yet the gas pumps would not have electricty to pump gas and the stations would not be resupplied.
This is what we fear that North Korea kooks might do. Two detonated bombs in the lower atmosphere and we would be a fourth world country.
Missile defense is not a bad investment when kooks run loose.
The part of this that really made me think is the issue of money in banks. I NEVER carry cash. If the electronic grid went down - suddenly I have no access to ANY money. What the hell would I do?
We had a hurricane warning here last year and as part of that I pulled some cash out in preperation for it, but it's not like I kept the cash hidden away afterwards (actually it was handy... we didn't get hit hard but for a week afterwards there were some credit card readers that were down in the area... could have been unrelated, but it made a point)
It does make you stop and think...
Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State, and may her colors ever fly!!! In Accordance with Prophecy
So all the chicks in the aftermath of an EMP attack will look like Jessica Alba? Sign me up!
Unfortunately, because of the cat DNA, twice a year they go into "heat." Jessica's character was kinda creepy in that episode...
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
