First, the basics:

Now pronunciation is very important:

Here is what you're looking for:

If you ever see one of these, call your local fire department and let them know what is going on.

If you see a nuclear explosion, DO NOT attempt to control it yourself. That is the job of trained experts who will arrive within eight to ten months, depending on the half-life of the radioactive fallout.

In April 2010, a 35-year old man was hospitalized in New Delhi after handling radioactive scrap metal. Investigation led to the discovery of an amount of scrap metal containing Cobalt-60 in the New Delhi industrial district of Mayapuri. The 35-year old man later died from his injuries, while six others remained hospitalized.

It's important to remember that even if you can't see a mushroom cloud, you could still be recieving deadly levels of radiation.

Everyone should get one of these Geiger Counters:

Just wear it around the house, at the office, etc.

If anyone has any other tips for surviving a nuclear apocalypse, feel free to mention them and I'll list them below.

  • A wall of money, given sufficient thickness, could shield you from a nuclear blast and the associated radiation. I suggest a solid wall of $1 bills about 100 feet thick. (Suggested by Gates)
  • Lead is your friend. Put it in your walls. Carry a sheet of it around with you to duck under in case of nuclear radiation. Carry block of it around with you so if a nearby nuclear reactor starts to melt down, you can throw them in and slow down the reaction. (Suggested by Lindale)

All you need to survive a nuclear war is lots of money.

Though I haven't looked at your tips yet, would they help you survive something like this?

Playing Fallout 3 should help you survive the aftermath.

[COLOR="Red"]You win.

Though Tsar Bomba may be the largest by a few miles (50MT vs 15MT), Castle Bravo is the prettiest.

It would have been lovely to see the 100MT version.[/COLOR]

Too bad these things aren't really tested anymore. I'd love to see them in HD.
