In BisMan-Friendly Tips On How To Survive A Nuclear Explosion
I'm almost positive you have the same feeling I do, "I don't ever want to think of the possibility of a Nuclear explosion close to us"...
...YES, "Then why the heck are you writing an article about it???" Good point. Ok, I came across this earlier today on google, and it immediately took me back to last year when I saw an eerie and disturbing video. Here is what grabbed my attention, an interview with an ex-spy, his daughter was just as a matter of factly talking about things we all have in mind, but never talk about it, certainly not with someone who would have more than likely had information privy to higher up security. When asked the uneasy question "Which part of the US is most likely to get nuked?" indy100.com reported that the retired spy simply answered "Minot, North Dakota" - check out the video:
I have watched that video a handful of times and it STILL gives me the chills.
So with that being said, here is the most logical question - "What in the heck can we do about it?"
Now I skimmed through a lot of these suggestions and I can honestly say it doesn't make me feel any safer. According to manufacturing.net "The most dangerous critical indoor locations to avoid are the windows, the corridors, and the doors- People should stay away from these locations and immediately take shelter. Even in the front room facing the explosion, one can be safe from the high airspeeds if positioned at the corners of the wall facing the blast." The reality is should we encounter a blast, we will have radiation, damaged power lines, fires, AND a ton of broken umbrellas. Let's all keep good thoughts and store away the bad ones, and if you ever come across this ex-spy just keep the conversation simple - like the weather.
