Lingering questions from last night's 24 episode
Some questions about the bomb going off in Los Angeles last night.
- How was Jack Bauer able to talk on his cell phone afterwards? Wasn't there an EMP?
- A 1-kiloton bomb is pretty small, but how much damage would it cause in a real world scenario? Especially since it was at ground level, and not at the ideal height above ground.
- Would cities across the country located downwind from the fallout be evacuated?
- What about residual earthquakes? Should the entire fault area have erupted?

I guess it's a bad thing that I've never watched an episode. I may be one of the very few who haven't done so.12:08 AM
Monday was my first episode too. Hadn't seen it before because I usually never have time to watch TV.
So far not too shabby. Hopefully it stays somewhat realistic.
