surviving the holocast 12>bobprin posted:9/26/2013 10:29:57 AM The doomsday clock is ticking down, in lieu of diplomatic talks the missles are fired. Destruction rains down all over the world. There are survivors, you among them. How would you survive? Where would you go? What would you do?bobprin posted:9/26/2013 10:36:55 AM When driving truck I had a lot of time to think and this was one of the problems I pondered. I am where I would go and have a plan. Hopefully it will never happen but.....gary107 posted:9/26/2013 11:36:15 AM my parents have a two story home they built near a lake on the other side of the mountains from San Diego. Surviving an Atomic was is easy, wanting to survive that is the difficult part of the equation.gary107 posted:9/26/2013 11:37:13 AM /...Atomic war...Jaxerback posted:9/26/2013 7:50:40 PM That stuff would not affect my little country...you can blow yourselves to kingdom come..I will have a beer.gary107 posted:9/26/2013 7:52:40 PM what falls on our East coast will will be fall out for your island.Jaxerback posted:9/26/2013 8:44:08 PM I just love the optimism on here...I cant wait for the nuclear mutants...they might make more sense.. gary107 posted:9/26/2013 10:02:48 PM we may already be the mutants.bobprin posted:9/27/2013 9:20:33 AM In Reply To:gary107 posted:9/26/2013 11:36:15 AM my parents have a two story home they built near a lake on the other side of the mountains from San Diego. Surviving an Atomic was is easy, wanting to survive that is the difficult part of the equation.Yes, wanting to survive for some would be difficult. There was a paper I read once that stated the death rate from suicide and accident in the first two weeks after the destruction would kill appx one third of the initial survivors. Jaxerback, I don't believe anyone would not be affected. Being intoxicated would be a dreadful mistake. Most people would be in shock. Human nature is to not believe that something will happen until it does.gary107 posted:9/27/2013 2:40:05 PM by the time JaxerB wakes up, it will all be over. Then by just saving their own little corner, they can claim how the "Irish saved civilization." You have to love the humour.bobprin posted:9/27/2013 4:11:08 PM God bless the Irish.Jaxerback posted:9/27/2013 8:36:38 PM Amen.gary107 posted:9/28/2013 3:20:08 AM if only the Irish survive, will there be any humanity worth saving?gary107 posted:9/28/2013 3:57:15 AM not ant sober humanity, but then the Irish would never had developed the bomb. They just write about what it does. No great Irish Physicists that come to mind.gary107 posted:9/28/2013 3:58:04 AM you would need a lot of living brain cells.bobprin posted:9/28/2013 8:15:49 AM Yes the Irish would never develop the bomb, they are much too smart to do a stupid thing like that.gary107 posted:9/28/2013 12:38:24 PM that does not mean they would not steal one if they could. their luck holds, they still do not have a functional one. I did formulate the question: Why do people who live in cities build bombs that can eat entire cities?bobprin posted:9/28/2013 1:17:19 PM People are stupid. Bombs aren't even good tools. Knifes and guns are at least useful for other things than killing your fellow man. But hey what the heck, assured mutual destruction is a good idea!**scardycat posted:9/28/2013 1:18:13 PM Well ill tell u what.. if I learn the worlds gonna end I'm not gona worry about anything.
