No, not at all. I don't relish the idea of me or my family in harm's way. But if it's going to happen no matter what, I'd prefer it happen while I'm young enough to contribute in a meaningful way.

I'm not an anarchist or anything, but i'm going to die anyway, so it would be nice to die free (meaning without government). Of course, i realize to want this is unfair to the 100's of millions who would get to take that ride with me.

I think I read somewhere that a microwave oven with the cord off and stored off the ground makes a good faraday cage.
You know, this makes sense. Not confirming or denying, JMHO. But think about it...a microwave emits a lot of microwave radiation. It has shielding so it doesn't cook you, too. So, if it can keep that radiation in, why not out? That's assuming that EMP & Microwaves are similar.....

try making a cell call while heating up your breakfast burrito standing next to your microwave


shielding is not so good

Excited? That's a pretty strange question I think, or thought. That anyone answered 'yes' as other than an obvious joke is rather surprising and a little disturbing. The definition of zombie just expanded a little as far as I'm concerned...

I'm a "zombie" because I like the adrenaline rush of surviving in a hostile environment? Not exactly the label I would have chosen, but if we have to label it, I guess I'll wear it...

How about something that denotes a little more adrenalin addiction than shuffling feet and a hunger for human flesh? Come on man, make me proud. I would suggest "Joker" if not for that murderous azz in Colorado...
