Thank you for the kind words. I take it as a compliment as I think that your stories are as disturbing as mine, if not more...


Thank you for taking the time to reply!

Yeah, the 80's...

When I was a kid in school, in one of Montreal's suburbs, one of the teachers told us this: When you get home, go to the kitchen, pick up a spoon and hold it 12" from the bottom of the sink. Now imagine, that if a nuclear bomb was to detonate in Montreal and you'd let the spoon go as soon as you'd see the flash, you would be dead before the spoon touched the bottom.

That is a long time ago and I don't remember who this teacher was but it scared the heck out of me.

And to think that nuclear warheads were firecrackers back then compared to what we have now...well...

Thank you for your reply !

My Uncle would tell me he always wanted time for a quick "OH SH*%!" and then vapor. And being the science nut I was once calculated in a Moore's law sort of way of what the mega ton yield would be today. Pretty much I would think it would be a planet ender...

So I think at some point they went backwards to lower yield, lower residual radiation. Smaller more effective weapons to knock out people but keep the infrastructure. Shock and awe but too much death becomes pointless and accomplishes nothing.
