In Deed: Page 11

Here’s page 11 of In Deed.

You’d probably get the impression that I just don’t LIKE the woman for some reason. Not true; I swear.

    Don’t worry, technically she’s not a woman.

    Good page, once again. Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. I’ll be back on Friday.

    A short circuit in a powerfull capacitor would generate an eletromagnetic pulse, this would induce currents in everything metallic around, but the magnetic field … creating ordered magnetic poles … I may be wrong, but I don´t think so due to the high frequency involved. It usually takes time to create a magnetic dipole (north – south).
    Well, anyway, it is interesting to note that our corporate spy (or whatever) knows what is reanimating the bodies all around. So, he is not really the good guy.
    Wait … coming from your fiction I should say “the less bad guy” or, perhaps, “the one that has only one meal of living children per day”.

    The magnetic portion of the pulse was an exaggeration on my part.
    It’s kind of like doctors who watch those medical TV shows and laugh at how badly the writers botch the medicine… I’m banking that the majority of my readers aren’t physicists or electrical engineers.

    Or physicists that spent some time reseaching magnetic pulses to fry the sound machine of their neighbors.
    It is good that I moved from that neighborhood.

    Unless you live very close to them, you’d need a LOT of power. I’ve researched the exact same thing for the exact same reason. Although, with a high enough capacitance you don’t need that much voltage…

    I was playing with a pulse generator attached to a coil and the pulse created was very directional. It induced a small current in another coil only when pointing right at its central axis. If I had a pulse generator with higher amplitude and could find the ressonance frequency of the coil of the sound box … it would be difficult to point my device to the exact center of the coil hidden in the sound box, but …
    The problem is that air dissipates too much of the bean, even when it is colimated by the coil. This forces us to use a amplitude a bit too high, pulse generators for that amplitude with the right frequency are probably too expensive.
    Yes, I am still thinking on the subject.
