    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?

    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 *** goodbye." :cool:

    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. :rolleyes:
