Re: State of Federal Preparedness

Typical of fed response, overdependence on internet comms between field operatives and HQ.
Base setup so a head official can see and converse with multiple nodes.
Might not be able to handle loss of power at HQ.

Always preparing to fight the last war, not anticipating what the next war will be.

Re: Is COVID-19 Leading to More Gardening?

According to Politifact, gardening is NOT banned. Just that the areas of the big box stores are closed off to the public that have anything to do with gardening. If you could just magic the seeds into your hands without trespassing within the store, you should be good. In a slightly unrelated matter...

Go see Spider-Man; Far From Home. Now. Welp. As I understand it, Phase 4, 5 and 6 will have Peter Parker in the central position much like Tony Stark was the center of the MCU in phases 1,2 and 3. Also, the Skrulls will have a very different portayal compared to the comics. Though they were foes see...

Re: Home defence with an airgun? Countries with no fire arms allowed

Thanks for your opinion. I`m not from UK. My country allows all airguns but the point is that i think should be something compact (as the hallways are not width enough) and should be semi-automatic (without reloading each time). A CB cap of 20 grains and 500 fps I think fits the spec and that would...

Re: Home defence with an airgun? Countries with no fire arms allowed

Simple answer: if the locality in question uses the UK restriction of a 12 foot pound limitation on energy, the answer is no. Typical .22lr as a 40 grain bullet at standard velocity of 1000 fps is 90 foot pounds; a 29 grain .22 short at 750 fps is 35. A CB cap of 20 grains and 500 fps I think fits t...
