Re: What has this Pandemic taught you?

I can use my version of an insta-pot as a sterilization enclave. Put a bit of water on the bottom, put the rack in, put in one mask at a time, set it on high temperature for 10 minutes. It works for anything small like medical instruments, etc.

Re: Propane or fuel lines

Old school was to put anything that could go bang in a pit, so if it did go bang forces were directed up.

Re: New Executive Order on EMP

EMP weapons are "hell" on cyber systems and power grids. Other then a few hardened military systems it is unlikely any would survive today. There are too many unstable nations with the ability to launch this kind of attack and a World that is unprepared to defend against it. Well done U.S.

Re: Generator Sale

My problem with propane in Winnipeg is that at -44 degrees it doesn't come out of the bottle. I'm sure I could find a way to warm it up, but hey, make a mistake and you guys will hear the bang.
