I love this meme in particular, mostly because it informs me of things I would have never normaly realized on my own because I'm Incredibly thick.

Neither are kick-start motorcycles, such as most dirt bikes. Even a lot of older cars would not be affected by an emp.

Just going to throw this out there from reading all these comments related to this first comment. alternators have diodes built inside them. diodes are oneway semiconductors that turn the ac current from the alternators into dc current to charge the battery, diodes will fry from an emp blast. so that said. The alternators will fry but can be fixed if One could find a diode lying around, One of the same voltage and amperage readings other wise it will fry again, I would recommend checking old crt tvs or other high voltage related stuff to find a diode to find, or salvage a bridge rectifier they can support the current, but only the bridge rectifiers that connect to the main.

Would they be protected because of the metal covering the alternator? (i.e. the car body)
User avatar #23 to #22 - mookiez (11/16/2012) [-]
Could not say for sure. I was thinking and pondering over that. But since the tires are rubber the grounding would be poor if anything so most likely it would not help, unless you ground it, plus ground the alternator for extra precautions, overkill is a good thing when it comes to protecting this of stuff.

they have spark plugs, though, right, and alternators, all of those would be destroyed, however, they are fairly easily replaceable.
User avatar #13 to #12 - recoveryone (11/16/2012) [-]
Spark plus would not be necessarily effected, and easily rebuilt if they are. And a large amount of dirt bikes do not have lights, such as the one pictured above(mine), so no alternators, even if they do have alternators, that would not be required to get the bike running. Even smaller bore bikes having only an electric start(such as a crf230l) can be started by popping the clutch if the electrical system is fried. Though, as dirt bikes modernize, they are switching to Fuel Injection, which does require electrical systems to be running properly. However, most two cycle engine, still use carburetors. Which would not be effected at all.

Hey, any time something you say is good enough for someone to possibly immortalize you should feel good about it.

I'm sorry. I'm chatting with a friend and I'm kinda switching back and forth. Attention span is a little lower than usual.

Fools, Doesn't anyone know how to protect their electronics from an emp blast? I'll be the small percentage of people prepared for such disasters.
User avatar #19 to #16 - masdercheef (11/16/2012) [-]
I feel as though if I ever get enough money to fund the project, I'm going to become one of those paranoid guys who shields everything I can against EMP, has a backup generator wired to the house, gas masks, emergency rations for like a year, a bunch of guns, and whatnot...

Not because I'm paranoid, but because it's awesome to be able to say "Oh, that disaster you saw in a movie? I'm prepared for that **** ."
User avatar #20 to #19 - mookiez (11/16/2012) [-]
Hell I heard that, Most stuff can be protected though by putting stuff in a metal box and grounding it, It's called shielding. But sometimes it helps to create some kind of overflow circuit to "knock" away the emp blast. Ground anything that You want to keep intact.

or you know you could turn you laptop off works just as well
User avatar #28 to #27 - mookiez (11/16/2012) [-]
no it does not. I've built homemade an emp, and experimented with them. I know what precautions to take.
User avatar #29 to #28 - mookiez (11/16/2012) [-]

an EMP fries electrical equipment if it's on or otherwise...
User avatar #14 - awesomenessdefined (11/16/2012) [-]
That Damn EMP. Always messing up my **** .
The future is electronics disguised as steam punk. Because it looks cool.

Steampunk is in the past not the future .-.

more of an alternative future, if we didn't develop past steam engines and such
User avatar #32 to #25 - drldrl (11/16/2012) [-]
Most of it happens during the 19th century victorian era.
User avatar #36 to #32 - biggrand (11/16/2012) [-]
would have happened if humanity focused more on science rather than religion in the past millennium, from what I understand
User avatar #33 to #32 - goodguygary ONLINE (11/16/2012) [-]
most of it. not all of it.
