What we know is this: there was a chemical attack Kinda like the ones that happe…

Unless they build it out of Kevlar and house it behind an impact resistant polycarbonate screen then I can't see it staying intact for long.

Half-inched from  Richard Hall Connexions blog.

Overconsumption means a consumption level located above the normal requirements or average consumption.
