 I bet you never knew that there were so many ways to split or cut a log.

 I've said many times on this board that my wife suffers from "Terminal Normalsy Bias". I think she got a wake up call with hurricane Dorian. Today she said "I think I will start storing water". I also noticed that our kitchen pantry is over flowing. She also asked if I have gas for our generator.
 She has no idea of the amount of food I have stored and hidden, I'll wait awhile before I tell her.  :popcorn:

 Your right I don't know what MAOI's are and the fact that I never saw the movie and have no intention to do so. :vomit:

Keep this in mind.   I just found it.   Particularly if you like animal based protein fresh.

Hidden meaning in that Silence of the Lambs menu.  The liver, fava beans and chianti dinner. 

Read it and pay attention to your scripts.

Thereís A Hidden Meaning Behind Dr. Hannibal Lecterís Infamous ĎFava Beansí Line In ĎThe Silence Of The Lambsí
by Cass Anderson 3 years ago

In The Silence of the Lambs (1991), the character of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, played by Anthony Hopkins, is perhaps the most iconic cannibal in history. In the film, his most famous line is when he tells agent Clarice Starling ďI ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.Ē Itís a deeply disturbing moment and one thatís accentuated by Dr. Lecterís batshit crazy eyes and gesturing of sucking out a manís liver.

Iíve always taken this scene at its face value, assuming it was a moment used to illustrate the depths of Dr. Hannibal Lecterís insanity. But, it turns out, thereís a deeper meaning to this liver/fava beans/chianti reference, and itís something only trained medical professionals (or potential FBI recruits) might pick up on.

Dr. Lecterís dark joke was explained about a year ago, on Reddit, but for some reason itís just making the rounds now:

Great line from Silence of the Lambs everyone knows. But most people donít realise Dr Hannibal Lecter is making a medical joke.
    Lecter could be treated with drugs called monoamine oxidase inhibitors Ė MAOIs. As a psychiatrist, Lecter knows this.
    The three things you canít eat with MAOIs? Liver, beans, wine.
    Lecter is a) cracking a joke for his own amusement, and b) saying heís not taking his meds.

If he was taking his MAOIs (monoamine oxidase inhibitors / antidepressants) then eating liver, fava beans, and drinking wine would be the death of him. This is one of those layered jokes that goes to prove that The Silence of the Lambs is one of the greatest films ever produced.

And before any of you trained medical professionals out there hop in the comments with Ďeverybody would know thisí let me remind you that the VAST MAJORITY of the population donít know what MAOIs are OR that they treat depressions OR that they come with dietary restrictions.

The effects of an EMP blast can be managed. Low yield, low altitude blasts can limit the affected area so other countries are minimally effected. A lot of electronic devices that operate above 100 Mhz can survive an EMP if they are located at a reasonably far distance. One large yield blast at 300 miles up over St.Louis would be very nasty for everybody between the Rockies and the Appalachian mountains. The mountains would block a lot of the EMP signal. I don't think an EMP attack would be a one shot deal. That would leave the highly populated areas fairly unscathed. It would take 3 well placed blasts to devastate the US. One high altitude blast over the mid country and one 60 mile altitude blast over the mid Atlantic and mid Pacific coast. I think our method would be to use low yield, low altitude blast over all of NoKo's  populated areas. Their rural areas are pretty much used to no electricity anyway. I'd like to think that NoKo isn't stupid enough to try an attack but I've learned over the years that people can be a lot stupider than one would think. They still vote for Democrats don't they?

 Granted some parts are still back in the stone age but their radar, missile sites are all over the country. We won't be targeting people but military sites.

Will NoKo be effected in any real way by an EMP?

if he was serious, he would have followed the UN narative about eating insects.

 Most of the UN leaders come from countries where eating insects is normal but to him it's disgusting, but cannibalism though not normal is to him less horrifying.   
 It's all about the HOAX of man made global warming. I'm still waiting for the return of the ICE AGE that a condenses of scientists claimed was coming on the first Earth Day in 1974.

  If NoKo attacks us with an EMP I believe we would retaliate with an EMP weapon, as our first strike which would affect parts of China and Russia. It is my opinion that they won't let that happen. An EMP blast does not recognize boarders. On our side Canada and Mexico will also be affected.

The article supports all we already know.  The fun part is fair portion of the comments.
