The aftermath of a real nuclear war would likely be far worse than any horror film cooked up by Hollywood. If they start tossing around the big bombs, I hope the first one lands right on my house.
Ha! I've said this for years too. Paint a target on my roof. Kindred souls? 8)
I marvel at the creation - its beauty, its endurance, its complexity. I marvel that man can make complex things but is incapable of making even the simplest living organism - a blade of grass, a tree, an ant, an amoeba.

Oh, I don’t want to survive a nuclear attack either.
I just want to hang out in a bunker today.
forcemeat, ie stuffing, is etymologically related to ‘farce’. When you say something is a farce, a joke, you’re saying something is a bunch of stuffing.

I can't help but wonder if the right way to play "would you rather die in a nuclear holocaust or survive it?" is that if you've been on top of the world, just crushing it, for a while, then going out in a flash is alright. You don't remember what it's like to feel shitty... loving life... then BOOM, it's over. On the other hand, if life has been kicking you in the sack for a while, what's wrong with surviving some atomic warfare, really? If anything it gives you an opportunity to do some rad (heh) shit before you die, like sitting on a rooftop taking out glowing, feral ghouls and eating all the ice cream you want.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

You've been giving us such glowing reviews lately I'm sure we're all tempted.

Maybe we should have a leadership exchange program so we can see how the other side lives ;D

It's funny you should say that. AU/NZ have always been on my bucket list of places to visit, but now it seems almost as crazy to go there as, say, Afghanistan.

In all fairness to Australia, it depends on which State you visit. Have family in Queensland and they say it's quite sane there.

Not the greatest version of the song that I have ever heard. But the way it was done was quite good. I'm on my third listening / watching.

Do you believe that it was all impromptu on the part of the crowd as we are led to believe? Or, that it was staged and rehearsed?
