I'm really getting sick of the threat of nuclear war and nothing ever coming of it. When I was a kid it was cold war and we had to crouch on the
ground in the hall with our heads against the lockers. The only thing that scared me back then was the smell of sawdust because that meant some kid
puked on the floor where my head was.
Then I saw the videos of the mushroom cloud and I gotta be honest, it sucked because it wasn't in color. I also read a Spiderman comic and discovered
radioactive spiders give you super powers. The pattern was clear, this stuff was awesome and like most awesome things, kids can't have any.
A little research revealed the circle of absolute destruction, aka the epicenter, is pretty tight. The further you are from ground zero the better
your chances for survival, and the better your drinking stories become. In addition things that are destroyed are things that need to be rebuilt or at
the very least repainted, this means jobs and that means money. Everybody (who isn't turned to charcoal) wins.
So here is some really vital information from Hiroshima and Nagasaki survivors, physicians and nuclear scientists..........
1. Anyone in the epicenter won't even know what hit them. The nervous system does not react quickly enough to register anything and it's over in a
fraction of a second.
2. Wearing light colored clothing will literally be the difference between life and death for many. Priests and nuns are toast (literally) but members
of the KKK will be just fine.
3. Most survivors with corrective lenses were pleasantly surprised to discover their vision was restored to normal after the blast, nobody knows why
this happens. Of course 20/20 vision after a nuclear blast has a downside as well.
Embrace the horror and danse macabre!
