State_College_Arsonist: A solar storm equivalent to the Carrington Event would probably kill a lot of people due to society's reliance upon electricity for damn near everything, and supposedly happens every 500 years or so. I've read some reports that claim a high-altitude detonation of a nuclear weapon could replicate the effect of a powerful solar storm. I'm not a doomsday prepper type, but it's certainly something to think about.

that bosnian sniper: italie: //We all know it's going to end up as "He who has the most guns eats", which is going to be a huge spit in the face to natural selection...More like "he who has the best aim eats". With the sheer number of loud-mouthed gun-locusts I know that couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, I know way better than to equate the size of a person's firearm collection with ability to use them. Frankly, I'd even go so far as to say that correlation is mildly negative since these people more often than not think they can overcome quality with quantity, and just buy more guns instead of learn to freakin' use the ones they already have.That said, I somehow think if the planet got hit with a solar storm powerful enough to start frying cars, whether or not cars work won't exactly be high on our priority list.

Don't Tongue the Reaper!: My very first car was my dad's 1972 Dodge Dart "Swinger". V-8 318. Loved that car. Could practically climb in the engine compartment to fix it.
WordyGrrl: When I was young and broke, I had to rebuild the carburetor for my crap wagon -- and it worked like a charm afterwards. That I did it right was a point of personal pride, but my long-ago feat of mechanical wizardry doesn't impress anyone anymore because nobody over the age of 30 knows what one is.That's a sucky part about getting old: being good at something that's now an obsolete skill.

Your_Huckleberry: I guess these folks plan on just tossing empty guns aside rather than reload them.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: My mom had one of those/a solar flare might not stop it, but a deer sure would
