Default nuclear/terrorist attack preparation

I am just curious what are your thoughts on survival in a nuclear attack situation? Do you have potassium iodide (anti-radiation pills)? How would that effect future survival if radiation was destroying the area your surviving in?

A good writeup on NBC situations is the book Nuclear War Survival Skills.

Default nuclear/terrorist attack preparation

During the late 60's / early 70's, someone produced a very realistic looking Civil Defense poster, giving step-by-step instructions on what to do in the event of a nuclear attack. Reading down through the various instructions, you came to the last, which said: Put your head between your legs, and kiss your ass goodbye."

There are so vary many variations, it would be impossible to tell what your chances would be. For instance, was it a full scale, or limited attack? How far away? Which way is the wind blowing? Are water supplies contaminated? On, and on.

I'm reminded of a guy who wrote to TV Guide, wondering what he could do to protect his pre-recorded VHS tapes in the event of a nuclear strike. No kidding, a real letter. TV Guide politely told him if we go through a nuclear war, he will have a bit more to worry about than his Star Wars collection.
