I'm with @John Brunner . I don't believe I care to survive a nuclear blast.
It would be a hell on earth for sure. There is no way for humans to imagine the suffering it would unleash on mankind. Today there are nukes so powerful they are 100 times more powerful that those two dropped on Japan. Our Gulf of Mexico is partially here due to the huge meteor hit millions of years ago. Most scientist and specialist believe that was the event that removed most species at that period of earth history. Hard to believe a roach survived !!! then some underground species that ate roots and never had a reason to go above ground they had all they needed. It was a simple blocking of the sun for decades that caused most of the death of species due to lack of food. The carnivores were the last of the dinosaurs due to them not being particular about who they ate or what condition it was in. I can see no purpose to try and live in a scenario that had no microwave ovens or food on a shelf, of course at my age worrying about something like that isn't high on my list, it would happen so quickly you would not know it happened, maybe listening to sirens or news on a TV while waiting for impact. Those missiles are all preprogrammed for targets and that would be military installations. I doubt it would be changed knowing the person launching would be receiving more than he sent and it makes common sense to hit your enemy military sites first.
Anyone else having flashbacks to Duck & Cover?
I still recall the sirens being tested every Thursday at 11AM.
And do we realized what a lie was being told to us by our government even back then that desks would protect us?
The idea was to able able to tell which ashes were yours and which ones were mine.
As kids we obeyed.
As an adult, I think I'd just stand tall and wonder if my retinas would fry before or after I died.
Actually there was a lot of good information which would have saved lives. There is video of close view nuke test at area 51 where they had sample homes sitting next door to each other and one was clean and the other was trashy and had a lot of surface clutter sitting in the yard. The clean places suffered a lot less damage than the dirty un kept places which all suffered major fire damage. I think that would apply to where I live so my chances wouldn't be so great. If I can find the videos again I'll post them. I have a good friend who worked there at area 51 as a heavy crane operator and he helped move those things into position. All the underground test required massive instrument platforms that had to be lowered in to the hole the nuke would be exploded from. He told me there were some really great old cars out there buried due to the radiation exposure and of course other really great things that today are worth a lot of money. There was a retired engineer living behind this friend of mine and he was working on those equipment platforms that were dropped into the holes. He retired and started hitting all the area 51 auctions, he had a ton of old stuff that were worth millions when it was all new. He was never able to sell any of the stuff due to the accelerated generation of better equipment. He had 4 or 5 of those round camera trailers that would track missile and aircraft test using special cameras in the dome. I loved looking at that stuff and always wondered what the units had recorded all those years it was used. I talk to my friend often now and he is getting pretty old, 87. Pretty soon if I don't die first I won't have any friends left in Nevada. I can only think of a couple more that are still living since I left in 05. I only saw area 51 one time and at a good distance. We were going to Tonopaugh and it was early winter, so we stopped to drop off an automatic transmission for a friend of the person I worked for then we were to drive back a couple cars to Pahrump to be sold. I never forget the place because the neighborhood where we stopped was sitting on top of a close silver mine and the wood works was still all intact. The person that we were visiting, his wife was cooking chili and I never forget how good that chili smelled in that cold brisk winter air at about 5000 feet, you could smell it all over the neighborhood. There is an air force radar station overlooking the valley and it sits up at 6000 feet as you come into town on a flat topped mountain.
Your writing is always so fabulously descriptive and interesting.
LOL, I read something a while ago about all the presidents in past 100 years or more are related.
I don't think I'd want to live after a nuke explosion.
Are All But One US Presidents Related?
A young girl in California has put together a Presidential Family Tree. Twelve-year-old BridgeAnne d’Avignon found that all the presidents but one are related to King John of England through a common ancestor.
“They are all cousins and all grandsons of John Lackland” (King John of England) BridgeAnne told KCOY News. The girl searched more than a half million names for months. She started with George Washington, then traced both the male and female family lines to make the connection.
Keep in mind that the relationships are sometimes distant 10th or 15th cousins.
Would A Bomb Shelter Save You In The Event Of A Nuclear War?
Not as well as hiding under a grade school desk ... and you thought I wasn't paying attention in grade school.
