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)
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.

I see your castle bravo, and raise you a tsar bomba.
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.
Id love to see them in person.
Far away of course.
Petition to use more nukes. Discuss.
