What will America be like in 2050? Where will it stand militarily and geopolitically? What defense and economic assets will it have left?

i want to know about radios and wavelengths and shit but dont know where to start, but ill try with some questions
>how easy is it to listen in on other people's communications? can you just tune a radio to the right frequency or is it more complex?
>when does wiretapping become legally questionable? probably when listening to government transmissions, i assume?
>how easily can you be tracked if someone finds you out? can you just turn your device off and vacate the area or can they track your location through the hardware or something?
>what exactly is HAM radio and how does it fit with this if at all?

Combat Spacewalking

No.50077497 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Can we talk about combat spacewalking? I just watched Gravity for the first time and it intrigued my thoughts about this topic again.

If an astronaut in any current spacesuit is hit with debris as small as an inch, at orbital velocity.....it's going to be an instant kill. I feel that in orbit to be effective in man v man combat, niggas are going to need an Iron Man suit or some shit

What does it feel like when you shoot an AK-74 with 2kg under the barrel and folding stock?

Would any of you guys EDC it for defensive purposes?

If so, why not just a longer fixed-blade?

I can't wrap my fucking head around how do ships and airplanes work??!?!

Ships today are made of iron and steel. I took a iron pan and gently placed it on the water in my bathtub and it SANK. Tried the same with other types of pans and they ALL SANK. These pans had NOTHING inside them, yet somehow ships that carry billions of tonnes of armament FLOAT??!

Same with airplanes, they're made of like aluminum. I carefully remove the top and bottom and flattened out the middle of an aluminum can and made an paper airplane out of it (aluminum airplane?) - anyway when I threw it off my balcony it fell down and almost killed the neighbore below.

I get that wood floats, that makes fucking sense, which is why we made ships out of wood back before Vietnam. And I get that fabric and paper winged airplanes do fly, which is why the wright brothers could fly and why such airplanes were common before vietnam. I get that some hot air ballons can fly if you fill them with hot air ballons.

But how the fuck do METAL airplanes and boats work?!?! METALS are heavy!

Is it all just a conspiracy theory? I once flew on an airplane, but what if they're just really fast trains under the ocean, and the little windows are screens that make us think we're flying?!! Or airships?
