My advice to them both though, let it go. kadaka Dec 12 2019 at 1:36 am Let it go, what many Democrats are saying about the Horowitz report when the choices are there was a cabal and a conspiracy against Trump, or the FBI is full of incompetents from top to bottom for the entire FISA process. Let it go? Nah. Jefferson A Selvy Dec 12 2019 at 4:44 am They say it like gross incompetence is somehow more acceptable than actual intent. Either way the agency needs to be purged as a whole. Not that I can find a power granted to the federal government in the constitution that allows the creation of such an agency. If course I’m no constitutional scholar, I mean, I can parse the words “Shall Not Be Infringed” and can find no place for the NFA . JTC Dec 12 2019 at 11:24 am Yeah, I wouldn’t go comparing Sam’s I’ll-advised curiosity to Marxist Dims…talk about Hell and Fury!! JTC Dec 12 2019 at 11:26 am ill-advised…stupid cyber editor. Too Tall Dec 12 2019 at 12:12 am Sam, you are being set up. And, your lack of trust is…disturbing. Don D. Dec 12 2019 at 12:43 am Hell hath no fury than a Redhead provoked to anger. WayneM Dec 12 2019 at 1:19 am In my experience, the provoking wasn’t difficult. epador Dec 12 2019 at 12:44 am Ah, C’mon, Sam is just messing with him. She knows it includes C batteries s for her… Pamela Dec 12 2019 at 2:28 pm As if Sam would need one of those… Now, I surmise certain members of Congress and the media probably have warehouses of C batteries. kadaka Dec 12 2019 at 12:45 am Protecting data from EMP’s is easy, use optical media like DVD’s. Protecting what reads the data is the challenge. So Sam really wants Zed to show her what’s in the box. Christmas is coming. There is a classic Christmas video by Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg about a Christmas gift in a box… eon Dec 12 2019 at 7:51 am Hard copy. EMP proof, cannot be “accessed” remotely, and all you need to read it is light to see by. Those who claim “print is dead” mostly mean “I want everything of yours where I can get at it”. clear ether eon JTC Dec 12 2019 at 11:19 am And a fireproof room to store it in and a librarian with top security clearance to curate it and arrange it. But yeah, kind of like we look at the old homesteaders in wonder with no power or running water, how did we survive without the inter tubes to run our lives? But they and we got by fine. Might come back to all of that. kadaka Dec 12 2019 at 12:12 pm After a large SHTF paper may become considerably scarce and what the ‘artisan papermakers’ seem to know is recycling existing wood pulp products. And who wants to backpack an encyclopedia set? I have small fanless mini-ITX motherboards with little fanless Mini-Box picoPSU’s. They are happy to live embedded in a sealed metal enclosure and be fed just 12VDC, could be from a car or solar panels. There are “wide input” versions for 12-32V. With SSD and/or flash drives, the big worry is having working peripheral equipment and connectors. Remember when flatscreen monitors came out and they lived for warranty length plus one day? JTC Dec 12 2019 at 2:09 pm Not soon enough but soon… Maybe we can blast off rather than shuffle off, this mortal coil. Pretty damn cool, from yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvky-qa8518 (h/t VFTP) Punta Gorda Dec 12 2019 at 11:52 am Dunno about optical media being safe. Ever see a CD or DVD in a microwave? With enough power, even a brick can fly. Jim Dec 12 2019 at 1:14 am Over 9,000 gigglejewels interventor Dec 12 2019 at 1:32 am Protecting data from EMP is easy. If, the data is in books. Pamela Dec 12 2019 at 2:02 am The Third Law of Physics ~ Never Piss Off A Redhead JTC Dec 12 2019 at 9:45 am What’s worse than the Fury of a Red? The quiet Anger of a Zed. That’s the First Law of Nature. Too Tall Dec 12 2019 at 10:58 pm I am fairly certain that is a direct quote from “Miss No Pants in the Barn with the Ping Pong Paddle.” Too Tall Dec 12 2019 at 11:07 pm And I am certain that Jo can quote that chapter and verse after she “impersonated” Sam while in Federal custody. The Real Paul Bunyan Dec 12 2019 at 4:48 am Remember Sam’s not a real redhead, I recall Zed throwing money at Skye to take the girls for ice cream when Sam walked in after the initial dye job at Muir’s off camera salon. JTC Dec 12 2019 at 2:14 pm I did not know that. 🙁 chris muir Dec 12 2019 at 5:08 pm Not so, but I gave it a pass.Red as red can be. Bob in Houston Dec 12 2019 at 6:53 pm That wasn’t a dye job, it was a return to the Louise Brooksish page boy hair style after she had grown it out long like it is now. GWB Dec 12 2019 at 7:31 am Yeah, Sam needs to let it go. She should know that Zed won’t have anything in there that would compromise their relationship. Tagg Dec 12 2019 at 7:37 am Emp’s dont effect gun powder trigger springs or lead objects. My data is safe. kadaka Dec 12 2019 at 12:28 pm SAAMI warns: Precautions should be taken to avoid buildup of static electricity on the person when handling primers or conducting handloading procedures. Loading equipment should be electrically grounded. Sparks can set off primers. Storing primers in bulk is not recommended, one goes and they all go. Consider your storage precautions accordingly. Merle Dec 12 2019 at 10:34 am Sam needs to back off – unless she is willing to reveal all of her secrets too! 🙂 drew458 Dec 12 2019 at 3:01 pm Real Paul Bunyan: Sam’s been a redhead since the first panels. She had a far less sexy hairstyle, but it was still red up top. Yeah, ok, she’s Japanese, so maybe it is dyed. But she’s been consistent with it for years. The Real Paul Bunyan Dec 13 2019 at 2:31 am yes looking into the archives (and from the Redvolution days) I see it was only a style change that incited Zed to bribe Skye to evacuate the kids so he could get the house a rockin’. In the Bush Clinton Bush Obama era vernacular I ‘misremembered’. Pamela Dec 12 2019 at 4:59 pm There is another way to determine she’s a red head if Zed is so inclined… GWB Dec 12 2019 at 10:08 pm And we’ve seen that. *grin* Yes, she is a redhead. interventor Dec 12 2019 at 11:57 pm I suspect Zed has visited that venue many times.
