    What’s so scary about 1967?

    @Clark Kent

    I don’t know if it is really true, but my electronics instructor said vacuum tubes were immune from the effects of EMP weapons due to the separation of the anode and cathode.
    .
    If true, microwave ovens should still work.

    EMPs create an effect in the electric wires, not just transistors or vacuum tubes – hence the wiring in the microwave might be burned out if the pulse is strong (like from a nuclear bomb.) How will the electricity get to the magnetron (the diode that generates microwaves)?
    P.S. the EMP would also burn out those electric implants (pacemakers) that keep weak hearts pumping.

    Buy some stocks/bonds/gold while you’re back in 1967.

    That is true, also the Diesel engine, no electronic ignition.

    Since you’re already in ’67, be sure to stay around for 1968. That was the year that was. Some good stuff. Some terrible stuff. But, dang, it was sure one heck of a year, you bet your bippy. (Laugh In premiered.)

    And it occurs to me that, if it’s truly 1967, Dorothy’s bra should have evaporated when they went through the portal.

    that’s why russian aircraft electronics had vacuum tubes.

    Provided that you don’t mind hand cranking it or have compressed air ignition with a full tank.

    I’ve cranked many a low compression tractor, but a high compression diesel doesn’t sound like fun. On a cold morning.

    I was amazed that anyone else recognized those numbers as tubes, but I was more surprised that a search of the Internet netted information on all of them. Finding information is so easy now!
