    If the windows and doors don't seal properly, I wouldn't bet on the biodefense filter saving you

    I'm glad no one was offended by the hair dryer/wives comment (...yet). :)

    Thanks for another fun and creative piece, Chris. :D Lovin' the collaboration!

    The hair dryer bit was one of my favorites too :D ... even though my wife and daughter don't use them (well, the daughter isn't quite 2, so that's not really an option anyhow :p )

    That's actually the whole point of Bioweapon Defense Mode - it pressurizes the cabin so that the air flows out rather than in through the various leaks. Of course, there's a limit to how large a leak it can overcome, especially if there's wind involved...

    Ah ha! So rather than have people hold their car doors closed while driving (other thread), they can just put on the Bioweapon Defense Mode and pressure the cabin so the doors would be sealed!

    Except you've got that backwards. With BDM activated it would push the un-lached doors open.

    When I get my X back, I'll close balloons in my windows, sealing off the other spaces, and turn on BDM. Let's see how this thing works.

    Then put a helium source next to the BDM filter intake and your X might just take off!
