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

Escape From LA 13*

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.

What Snake Working for Someone Else ? Not a Chance! He's the Anti Hero and Only Defends for himself !
If you watch the Movie you will see the Satellites Making the Beam in a web Design and it Show its ON Constantly ! in other Word Electronics that Use Transistors will Never Work! as they said it will shut down the Entire Planet! and it Would probley take a decade for a Functioning Vacuum Tubed Rocket to be able to launch into Space Like the V2 let alone in How to Disable the Satellites that is Constantly Bombard Earth with EMP it Would be as people Live in 1940s All over again be for Transistors

Well did this ever Happen before! is there any non fictional Truth in that Escape from LA Scenario

Dam Right There is !

Starfish Prime

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.[7] 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.[8] The EMP damage of the Starfish Prime test was quickly repaired because of the ruggedness (compared to today)[9] 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)[10] 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[9] 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.

And the Only Aircraft that Will Fly Would be from WW2 or Earlier ! and the Mig 25 FoxBAt and Planes Similar to it that use's a Non Transistor Technology as the Mig 25 Used Vacuum Tubes They would be the Only Planes In the Air After A Big EMP HIT!


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 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?

It looks like it's you that humour is lost on as my reply was as tongue in cheek as yours

I would walk by, and continue on walking long after the ashes of that little shanty town cool down.

Unless I was invited in, I have no interest or even care what, or who they are, or what they have, or why they think they will survive, really when it rains it pours and such a little community that you describe with all there painted up soldiers and gatekeepers standing bravely and baring my way, I see no reason to help them in the coming storm.

But just for good measure, when they ask me what useful skills I have. I would say "I can juggle" then I would proceed to juggle some rocks, dropping one or two now and then. And after they have had there fun and me my amusement, and I get kicked out, well who knows?

Maybe I will go start my own community only with invisible walls "since they seem to like walls so much" and because as the every peoples and nations in history has learned by now "probably" they are kind of dense you know, slow learners some would say. But anyways! physical walls have never kept anybody out in the long run, or even the short run.

In fact having a wall around this little compound will be like lighting a beacon to everybody for miles and miles around that there is something in there worth taking.

Or better yet, how's about this. I get my own roaming legions of doom, and traverse the country side visiting such little campsites and bartering with them at the end of my sword, I'f they want to play that game, I will oblige them. For in a SHTF scenario I don't have to play by the rules I adhere to willingly, especially if they don't do the same.

But really walking on is the best option, for crowded places are overrated.

After that, I could guard the town.

We could call it a physical resume, either way, I'm getting in.

That's me, man. I usually stay stable as a rock while the crazy is on, then afterwards, when there's nothing left to worry over, I just fall all to hell, get all kinds of shaky, like it's just then catching up to me.

In teresting thread. Humm, to be honest, if it was a large stockade, I would have spotted you and your activities long before you spotted me. I would therefore set up a LUP and watch you for a couple of days, to try and get a feeling for what kind of folks you are and whether I would want to enter.

What three skills would I need to enter?

1. I have been watching you for a few days without detection. I would be useful as a member of your malita and be happy to join extra-parimeter patrols.

2. I am ex-military with many useful skills, not only violent, that could be put to good use.

3. I have no hidden agenda to sieze power or upset the apple cart.

Same same dude.

Mr Cool-Calm-and-Collected during major events.
Mr Rocking-In-The-Corner-In-A-Foetal-Position after it.

...people who aren't are either lying, or crazy, or don't fully understand how precious and precarious life can be...

...either option is someone I wouldn't want anywhere near me in said situations...

Major crash afterwards! Adrenaline goes away, all the nutrients that are stored in your muscles is depleted, all that insulin/sugar conversion crashes, blood-pressure drops, you become light-headed, quesy, muscles quiver, tunnel vision. I've crashed so hard I had to pull over my car and wait 30 minutes, couldn't even give myself a drink of water without spilling it all over myself.

But while there is something to be done, I'm the man, LOL! Afterwards, fetal position sounds pretty good to me!! Especially if I can lay my head in the lap of the fair maiden, LOL!

Tough guy over the interwebz. Seen every action movie, has special forces experience, but only from Halo and
Gears of War.
Read every survival forum, intricate knowledge of all kinds of useful subjects, but only theoretically. Rarely ventures outside of Mom's basement, and has a weak bladder if ever faced with the glean off a real gun.

Ya, we got lots of those, but it's all in good fun. Who knows, I might even be one.

I'll give it a bash, though I don't know how useful my 'skills' are lol

I am fully trained and able to perform resuscitation on infants (for the guy with the super sperms offspring - just in case!)
I can play guitar, albeit badly, but it would be a much needed source of entertainment and morale boost. My witty banter crossed with appalling musical ability would be rather fun, I think.
I can grow food. If anything else fails, my musical ability should keep the birds away from the crops

You? Somehow, I doubt that.

Those kind of people know all the buzz words but can never relate to specific details. They are full of the gung ho stuff, but never mention the months of boredom in between.

Civilians can not apreciate (spelling?) how boring military life can be. I mentioned above about setting up an LUP. Sometimes you can spend days in that place and see nothing. You are on cold rations and all your bodily functions must take place in situ, plus they are to be bagged and stored and eventually taken away when you leave.

Not very gung ho now is it? LOL

But, I do hear what you say.

My resume?

Experience in Agriculture.

Thirty years military experience in multiple fields.

Carpentry and welding skills as well.

I also know how to keep people like GringoViego out. He should I say it? Fertilizer for the next year’s crop.
