Did Donnie get a pacemaker for his peen? Are they holding Donnie's erections hostage?

Because that is about the only way I can see for Russia to take out the US Navy...

In the event of this new musical weapons race, what's the next big one? Will the US weaponize Pitbull? What happens if Canada finally puts Nickleback to good use?

A little off topic but I am saddened that Germany will not only have to sit out WW3 but it also won't be the cause of it.

Yup, left a US Destroyer totally dead in the water.  And this is the first leak of that news.  No one noticed the US sending a tug out to the Black Sea to tow it back to port or anything.

Canada's been putting Nickleback to use for years. We're just not sure what the next phase is yet.

Wouldn't the Russians have to trick the Navy into moving all their ships into place in a single location first? I don't see how it could work otherwise; I doubt the ships are linked in series like Christmas tree lights.

This. And that was during the day of tubes, which should be more resilient. It still wiped out electronics on numerous islands in the pacific.

That being said, we have a navy that's on opposite ends of the world, so unless they plan on bouncing it off the ionosphere...

Got pulled over by a cop blaring my NiN and got out of a ticket.
He was kinda off balance when he looked at my license, and it said I was 60, and saw a mandolin case on the passenger seat, and the NiN CD case next to it.

Young cop. Kind of startled I guess to realize he may end up in the future listening to something completely not yet invented.

I didn't tell him I could see his future. I wanted out of the ticket, not observed overnight.

Anything with that power, would knock out their own weapons as well. So, if they start assembling an army of tens of millions of foot soldiers with no mobile units more advanced than the Model A, you could get nervous.

So what are they talking about?  Judging from the headline, I took it to mean they had some sort of software hack that disable the fleet.

I have heard the claim that an EMP can take out automobiles of any era (not just the ones that rely on a chip for ignition timing) because the coil will pick up the pulse and fry the wiring.  It seems to me that any electronics containing a solenoid, tube or solid state, would be vulnerable to an EMP.  As would anything with wiring spread over an area, ground loops, etc.
 
2017-04-19 04:26:51 PM  
When I started reading, I thought the Russians had developed an EMP projector of some sort. Then I realized it was just BS.
