    yes it's a blog, don't care what clown you are voting for so let's not make it about who can get us nuked. the internet is serious stuff I tell you.

    so I can take the 15 fwy out but I am not sure how much time I have after the nuke hits.

    If they do, their country is going to cease to exist.

    Of course you live in the "blast area". 128 million people do. And if a few million people in one of those target zones decamped en masse to Alaska, maybe there would be a yellow dot around Anchorage.

    The survivalist fantasy relies on the myth that the city is a uniquely dangerous place, a "target rich environment" where we're not supposed to be. What better way to reinforce that perception than by hypothesizing that by becoming a top-30 MSA, the community has become a target for some "planner" who likes to kill people instead of targeting military installations such as Ellsworth AFB, or Minot AFB, or any of the numerous other military installations in flyover country.

    Toronto looks safe, id probably drive a little further north to avoid the radioactive people trying to escape.

    Just dig a hole and get in it. You'll be fine.

    I'm good as long as that crap doesn't drift up the 15 like everything else does.

    I'm inclined to agree although Trump has 22 days to make a deal with some rogue to try to light up the rest of the GOP before he sheds the last veil and shows us his tiny hands clasping an m-80 firecracker he plans personally to toss into Paul Ryan's trashcans out back of his House. What a mensch, The Donald, he will surely be missed. By cartoonists.


    As you pointed out, you're citing a blog. Further, it's a survivalist blog that seems to have been written by people living in a constant bubble of oh man oh man the terror the terror what to do, stock up, dig deep.

    But okay I'll play. I guess I wouldn't sit around playing "On the Beach" on my laptop. Looks like New Brunswick would still be a good place to hang out for awhile until the wind brought the bad news. Probably some traffic up through Maine...

    Could just stay here a bit past the edge of the NY MSA kill zone and eat the winter pantry? Yeah, eat the salmon first, save the canned beans for the survivalists who came through looking for something better than whatever freeze-dried camp rations they had stashed away all these years. Or should I share the salmon? I usually have a few gallons of bottled water sitting around since our village water gets a busted main now and then. So they could at least mix up their mixupable packets of whatever. I could finally try that curried thing people say is not that bad.

    I dunno man, why can't we just all get along instead. Seems simpler.

    The map is BS. Hawaii would be the first hit.

    That's one thing I hate about living in NYC. We are the #1 target.

    It's not like it's a sane thing to start a nuclear war with a superpower so you could be right.

    Why would they not go for broke though; Hawaii doesn't really seem spectacular enough, but it could be a pragmatic target for its accessibility. Also, we were surprised once in Pearl Harbor, so maybe we're not all that sleepy out there any more.

    May as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb, so a striker could opt for LA or NY, Chicago, Miami.... and then throw everything else they had anywhere at all, since next there'd be ours heading in to obliterate them.

    Really we have to hope for the planet that some rogue doesn't manage to get a big one off to a metro area anywhere in any country. The possibilities for a misunderstanding by superpowers could be pretty high in the minutes after such an event.

    I'm right between the White House and the Pentagon... pretty sure we'd be in the first round.

    When I lived in the city I figured ok well I'd probably never know what hit me. Seemed good as opposed to being here about 160 miles away and sure to get poisoned by it and go the hard way. I can't figure out why people in the city think they could get in the car and go someplace anyway, like if you lived out on the island someplace. Hell, stay home, break out the good chocolate...

    I'm not hoping it happens but Pearl is a huge naval asset to the US in the Pacific. It would be crippling to lose it.

    PACOM and the Pacific fleet Hawaii would go quick. If they hit there, SOCAL, and Va our Navy would cease to exist in any real sense. That's where I would aim first since they project the power.

    Poor Alaska ... no one bothered putting it on a small square on the map. So either it's the first to be destroyed completely, and thus not on the map; or it's already destroyed by Sarah Palin and we have a fictitious 49th state; or it's too beautiful to be destroyed and our enemies have a heart.

    Nobody cares about the gulf coast, apparently. I might just stay. Of course, it's still safer where I'm going should the dangerous candidate win.
