Develop an M-bomb

Ironic sans had a funny post that if he were the leader of a foreign nation, he would develop a bomb and call it the f-bomb. Then, “Then I‚Äôd get a little giggle every time it was reported in the news that my country is threatening to drop the F-Bomb.”

Next time I play croquet, I’m going to coin the phrase M-bomb (my name is Matt, and my croquet alias is the Mighty Mauler). Then I can say I’m gonna drop the M-bomb. Yeah, it’s not as funny as the f-bomb joke, but it’s funny to me. And I shall laugh maniacally every time I say it. muhahahahaha!

“m-bomb” is harder to say. the letter “f” has more power behind it. “e-bomb” is even better than “f-bomb” or “m-bomb”. The sound of it is more dramatic. eeeeeeeeee-bomb. (“e” for “erik”)

No, no. An e-bomb sound technologically driven like e-mail”. You don’t want to mess with an e-bomb. It’s all about precise destruction. An e-bomb is like a precision-guided munition

oh snap. There is actually an e-bomb: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-bomb An electromagnetic bomb or E-bomb is a weapon designed to disable electronics on a wide scale with an electromagnetic pulse. The electromagnetic radiation from an explosion (especially nuclear explosions) or an intensely fluctuating magnetic field is caused by Compton-recoil electrons and photoelectrons from photons scattered in the materials of the electronic or explosive device in a surrounding medium. The resulting electric and magnetic fields may couple with electrical/electronic systems to produce damaging current and voltage surges. The effects are usually not noticeable beyond the blast radius unless the device is nuclear or specifically designed to produce an electromagnetic shockwave. An electromagnetic pulse lasts for less than a nanosecond, and travels outward in every direction as an electromagnetic shock wave. This shock wave will induce heavy currents in all electronic equipment that mainly contains semiconducting and conducting materials. This produces immense heat that melts the circuitry inside. As such, while not being directly responsible for the loss of lives, these weapons are capable of disabling electronic systems on which industrialized nations are highly dependent. Devices that are susceptible to this type of damage, from most to least vulnerable: 1. Integrated circuits (ICs), CPUs, silicon chips. 2. Transistors. 3. Vacuum tubes (also known as thermionic valves). 4. Inductors, motors. Transistor technology is likely to fail and old vacuum equipment survive. However, different types of transistors and ICs show different sensitivity to EM: bipolar ICs and transistors are much less sensitive than FETs and especially MOSFETs. To protect sensitive electronics, a Faraday cage must be placed around the item. Some makeshift Faraday cages have been suggested, such as aluminium or tin foil.

don’t mess with an e-bomb.
