E-bomb?

Don't know if this has been posted yet, but it's pretty interesting. Imagine living in a world where technology is pretty much destroyed?

When I saw this topic I got an image of a plane flying over Iraq or somewhere and dropping a bunch of E then the country breaking into a giant spontaneous rave. Think of it, if the US dropped this kind of E-bombs everywhere for 6 or so hours we could have world peace!

Also imagine Osama or Hussein doing liquid, lol!

the us dropped one on iraq... on the tv station. remember when the us said that they bombed em, but it made no sense, because the building was still there, etc etc....

i have the story saved, but it was changed 20 minutes later...

I've got a good novel called America by Stephen Coonts. The US gets E-Bombs used against them in it. Pretty cool descriptions.

And yeah, the prospect of these things scares me a little  :smirk:

Sounds like a cool book, I'll check it out. I think it would be pretty cool if someone dropped the e-bomb. There'd be pretty much total anarchy for awhile.. .Well the government would probably institute martial law so that would suck. It would be a great time to lead a revolution though..

what are you talking about? It's not like an E-bomb would take out the entire country.. at tops a medium sized city. And no there wouldn't be anarchy because not that many people believe in it. There would be mass confusion and frustration but that's about it.
