Freakin’ idiots. Deserve to starve to death. Preferably sooner rather than later.
No worse than...
"I know... lets compare blood samples to see if she's different" (Joel and the two dumb girls go to the lab- draw blood from newcomer girl and put it under a microscope) "well- what do you see?" "I have no idea- I'm out of my league... we need a scientist!"...
Well then why he heck did you suggest comparing blood samples in the first place if you have no clue about such procedures?
They have morphed Joel who was supposedly "the smart one" into probably the lease intelligent character on the show... and that's saying something!

I'll consider using Dome Logic next time I need to do an auto repair... "let's pull the engine to see what's wrong"... after pulling engine... "well, what's the problem?"... "I have no idea- I'm not a mechanic!"

"I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure...."

Perhaps the dome is some sort of a non-Newtonian substance. So, explosions and sound waves bounce off, but vaporous materials pass easily through.


Probably radiation would get through, but the bomb that was aimed at the dome wasn't radioactive. It was just a really, really big explosive device.

Sound waves could be blocked due to the sharpness of the sound waves - it would be like tapping on the dome, which would resist it.
I think you'll find that the real answer is simply that the dome is magic. It decides what it wants to let through and what it doesn't. That gives the writers the ability to change the rules whenever they feel like it.

Yep, it's pointless to speculate on anything, really .. "Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat .. "

So Lost but without the suspense. But with the "let's not tell the others". Oh well. I should just be thankful they rarely do flashbacks.

Damn it Chloe, we're running out of time. Use the not a computer device!

Oh, no doubt.

I was just trying to give the writers an out that had some real science behind it...

Just wait until Big Jim has to share a ceremonial cup of spring water from a secret cave to crown the new Monarch.... Perhaps it might turn out to be Nicki or Paulo....

You're waaaaay overthinking this.

I think there's more thought and effort put into our posts here than the "writers" put into their Dome episodes
It's really getting ridiculous at this point... if for some reason the town needed 18 tons of plutonium next week, we'd learn that Chesters Mill was sitting on top of the mother lode of 99.9% pure plutonium just waiting to be hauled out.... because the dome wanted it!

Clearly the point of the tunnel is to setup up a spin-off "Under Under the Dome"
