WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
While the idea of MAD pretty much assures us this won't happen....obviously these fears have resurfaced given the tensions between the US and NK, as
well as Russia and China.
So, what would you do?
For me, it would depend on where I was. I work about an hour from my house. My house is pretty much out of the radius of any possible nearby targets,
but my work is WAY too close to a major AF base, so it's a drastically different situation.
At home, pretty much just stay indoors and hope for the best.
But, at work, it gets more complicated. Forget my building. Too much glass windows. I'm basically hopping in the truck, and driving 10 min to pick up
my wife, then we're high-tailing it to the nearby movie theater. Why? Well, they don't have windows, have thick walls, are designed as room within a
room, and put as much material between us and any fallout, as we can hope for. (no basements in FL). The exit door is generally metal, which is good,
and the whole place is sealed for light, so better sealed for particles as well.
Also, generally has a good stock of sealed food and water. I'd have my get home bag as well, from the truck, so at least I'd be armed, and have some
basic survival gear also.
Granted though, this is a tight run in the time alotted. That's my concern. Of course, if it happened on the road, we would be out of the blast, just
the fallout worries. I guess then, we could just strip off clothes and leave them outside, run in the theater naked with a gun, get into the bathroom,
and wash up (to get the fallout off us). Modesty kind of goes out the window with survival.
Of course, odd as it is, because as a kid of the 80's, this threat was more real, so some of us learned this stuff....today's generations just have
ZERO idea about the reality of nuclear war. For decades, they've been told it's not survivable at all, that it's just game over, when this is a far
cry from reality.
So, what would YOU do?
