Lol. Why did you say Mirthful Me?
Even an all out nuclear war, there will still be survivors. But, how would you get there, if there is a launch, you would have maybe 20-30 min. Also, how would you know of a launch in the first place?
into a war of annihilation. Weapons of absolute energy were used by each nation against the other, weapons whose destructive power was a thousand times greater than that of the Hydrogen bomb which threatens your race today. There was no question of victory or defeat. They simply destroyed each other. There were few survivors and the radiation level of the entire surface of the planet had been raised beyond human tolerance. This did not mean that all survivors were doomed to immediate death from the radiation, but it did mean that progressive deterioration of the mental and biological functions, together with the large number of mutations which would be produced in succeeding generations, would, eventually, bring their level of existence down almost to that of the beast. "On a high plateau, in what is now the country of Tibet, six of our aerial craft had been landed by their crews. A council was held to determine what, if anything, could be done.

Im putting this in the survival thread and please mirthfulme dont move this. It belongs here because this has to do with the biggest of all survival questions. If a nuclear war looks like it is going to break where the hell am I going to take my family. Lately I have thought about this (after this whole Georgia deal) and I have really come up with 3 locations.
A. Right in the heartland of the US Iowa. I like here because there is little population and bases which makes for little use to nuke. Not only that wind is big which could blow away any prevailing fallout.
B. Some misc Caribbean Island. My mentality is once again the wind and the fact that who the hell is going to nuke some small Caribbean Island.
C. Switzerland. For some reason Switzerland never gets hit in all the wars and part of that reason is because that is where all the money and power of the world play.
Those are my three places to go if it looks like a nuke war is going to break. People this is about survival and we have to be realistic here. This is no sit-x if this really happens our areas that we can go to and actually survive will be VERY minimal. Then again there may be no place to go to survive. Fill me in.
