Enter your location. Choose a weapon and hit the button "NUKE IT" at the bottom of the map.
Oops, should put the link in my post:
I nuked West Hollywood and SURVIVED!
“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
After reading Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, I don’t think I want to survive a nuclear apocalypse.
I’m in my berg’s fireball...
Nope, I’m too close to downtown St. Louis - oh well, when it’s my time, it’s my time and I really don’t care when that is or how it happens. :)
According to the map, if Seattle were nuked my place would survive everything except the 50 megaton “Tsar Bomba” and an asteroid impact.
I nuked Atlanta and survived everything except the Asteroid impact, but that cleared all of the US.
The map is of Japan. How do I get a map of America?
You have to chose your city in the “search box”. Then pick a weapon. Nuke it.
I searched for Los Angeles. Aimed at West Hollywood [which it richly deserves] and I barely survived.
I took out Indy with the the big one.
Gonna be right outside the last ring.
I’m good with a hit on Detroit (if the wind is blowing east)
I aimed one at Nashville and except for the asteroid impact, I’m in pretty good shape. If an astoroid hit in the mid to eastern part of the US, Alaska would survive.
A 1.2 megaton thermonuclear weapon, ground detonation on Mac Dill AFB, and we "barely survived." Don't know if that's a good thing or not...and we are pretty well prepared.
I nuked ‘Frisco over and over.
Damn, that felt good.
I love saying “Frisco” too. Just using the word drives those pretentious snobs over the edge.
Kiloton weapons... no problem. Megaton weapons... I got problems.
I took out Mecca (centered on the Al-Masjid al-Haram mosque) with the 50 megaton blast. ...just for fun.
Better than Washington and Sacramento combined?
I lived in Frisco Texas for a while years ago.
Having been to West Hollywood, I couldn’t help but laugh and agree with you.
That Ralph’s ripoff supermarkette needs to be nuked on just principle.
What a ripoff.
Keep a welder’s helmet handy to enjoy the show.
“The Road” was a great book, I hope the movie is as well.
The when they squawk, blandly say you were talking about Frisco Texas, and even more blandly note how provincial San Franciscans are, they think everything is all about them...
Whether in Boston, MA or Concord, NH, I’m fine, apparently.
I’m hosed....By any of em. I live too near downtown.
What a wonderful time we live in. Makes you feel good to be part of this technical progress. Happy 2009 (I guess.)
the site only depicts range of thermal explosion and not range of fallout impact I suppose.
They need a weapon in the list called an explosion of Nuclear power plant.
What about over pressure from the blast?
Cary NC can survive some of the blasts targeted at Raleigh, but we can’t survive all the NJ/NY Libtards moving in. We need a map to show that effect.
Cool. Can I have your stuff? I'm going to survive, and I'll need it.
what do each of the different rings around ground represent?
The good news: Unless it's a terrorist attack, they wouldn't target downtown St Louis. Aim at the nearest military base and see how you do.
The bad news: You live near downtown St. Louis.
Sarah for Aunti of Bartertown!
You forgot to add... Merry Christmas! ; )
I used it to nuke Green Bay. Twice in one week. Life is good.
I don’t want to talk about nuclear weapons but about your AR-15. Have you ever used it for hunting, and I don’t mean plinking. What have you bagged with it and is there hunting ammo in .223 Remington available?
I posed that question yesterday and from the answers I got I deduced that hunters were not very happy with me trying to use my Bushmaster for hunting purposes. What are your thoughts?
That wouldn't be too impressive. When reactor plants explode, it's a chemical reaction not a nuclear reaction. For example, reactor 4 at Chernobyl suffered a steam explosion, then a graphite explosion.
While reactor 4 exploded in April of 1986, reactor 3 (in the same building) ran until December of 2000.
The way it looks now it could the a very long time.
Pick Asteroid. Nature wins hands down.
You said — “I lived in Frisco Texas for a while years ago.”
It’s growing like crazy out there now. And shops are *everywhere*.... LOL...
Twenty-five miles from the White House, as the crow flies. I’m going to get toasted.
Besides, even if one isn’t actually within the fireball, can you really believe that modern houses could stand up to a strong wind, much less the blow from a nuclear bomb?
If it looks like bad stuff is going to happen, I’m going to saddle up—literally, saddle the horses—and ride. I think we’ll get further that way than trying to escape on roads that are already a horrible snarl even during a normal rush hour. But the chances are that no one will have advance notice and any contingency plans will burn along with us.
I tried this and we should be safe from the blast & some of the fall out here in S.E. Mi. [I am less than a mile from the MIS speedway]
