Default Re: MB vs EMP

MIT did a study on the effectiveness of the tinfoil helmet.

here's a quote:...Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason...

i still say the best zombie apocalypse vehicle is a Brinks armored truck. but tom's right. unless you convert it to points ignition, you'd have to build a farady garage to keep it in.

but if i'm not mistaken, after the EMP, you should be able to start your car up again, right? the pulse shouldn't leave any lasting effects (on your car anyway) just knock it out for the moment.

i also remember seeing an experimental RC car the cops could use to drive under your real car during a chase that would zap all your electronics, too...
