The Visual of what could of happened if we were bombarded with EMP with the kill switch missing
if they ever made such a device ! With the Population we have The 3 trailers Above would become a reality

problem with that scenario is, plisken was probably working for someone else that has all their electronics in faraday cages and now they are the only people on the planet with technology. puts a whole new spin on global elite. you're supposed to believe that if a massive emp wiped out all electronics, that it would also wipe out the electronics of the big guys. not.a.chance. and when he says "welcome to the human race", he's not talking to the elite. he's the voice of the elite talking to the rest of us.
In July 1962, a 1.44 megaton (6.0 PJ) United States nuclear test in space, 400 kilometres (250 mi) above the mid-Pacific Ocean, called the Starfish Prime test, demonstrated to nuclear scientists that the magnitude and effects of a high altitude nuclear explosion were much larger than had been previously calculated. Starfish Prime also made those effects known to the public by causing electrical damage in Hawaii, about 1,445 kilometres (898 mi) away from the detonation point, knocking out about 300 streetlights, setting off numerous burglar alarms and damaging a telephone company microwave link. Starfish Prime was the first successful test in the series of United States high-altitude nuclear tests in 1962 known as Operation Fishbowl. The subsequent Operation Fishbowl tests gathered more data on the high-altitude EMP phenomenon. The Bluegill Triple Prime and Kingfish high-altitude nuclear tests of October and November 1962 in Operation Fishbowl finally provided electromagnetic pulse data that was clear enough to enable physicists to accurately identify the physical mechanisms that were producing the electromagnetic pulses. The EMP damage of the Starfish Prime test was quickly repaired because of the ruggedness (compared to today) of the electrical and electronic infrastructure of Hawaii in 1962.
The relatively small magnitude of the Starfish Prime EMP in Hawaii (about 5600 volts/metre) and the relatively small amount of damage done (for example, only 1 to 3 percent of streetlights extinguished) led some scientists to believe, in the early days of EMP research, that the problem might not be as significant as was later realized. Newer calculations showed that if the Starfish Prime warhead had been detonated over the northern continental United States, the magnitude of the EMP would have been much larger (22 to 30 kilovolts/metre) because of the greater strength of the Earth's magnetic field over the United States, as well as the different orientation of the Earth's magnetic field at high latitudes. These new calculations, combined with the accelerating reliance on EMP-sensitive microelectronics, heightened awareness that the EMP threat could be a very significant problem.
Rather than solid-state electronics, vacuum tubes power the Mikoyan MiG-25 avionics.
In extreme temperatures and nuclear radiation, these vacuum tubes have actually been
proven superior to solid state technology.
The vacuum tube driven radar of the MiG-25 is able to penetrate even modern
electronic counter measure systems.

I can explain away all your problems as they arise, or I could procure another cowhide and make more currency, ...
I vote you in as the "whipping boy" that everybody can kick round and abuse to relieve tensions and frustration
I wonder if the world needs the banker as a "whipping boy", in the way you describe, or, because it is obvious that lacking a sense of humour prevents one from appreciating my witless sarcasm, should I replace the word banker with jew for a more historical perspective?

After that, I could guard the town.
We could call it a physical resume, either way, I'm getting in.edit on 7-10-2011 by GringoViejo because: (no reason given)
