If something happened to Roxette, you´re a dead man.[/QUOTE]
News flash: The 90s happened to Roxette. After we got tired of singing na-na-na-na-na-na na-na-na-na-na-na, we placed their album in the attic with the Herreys and Europe.

[QUOTE=Fargin;6039118]US' largest nuke doesn't seem that impressive, when you put it into the right context.[/QUOTE]
nukes are overrated. Actually "smaller ones" would cause about the same damage than the conventional bombings of Dresden, Hamburg or Tokyo causing firestorms. The advantage is the smaller package compared to fleets of bombers over days. Nukes are cleaner (altitude bombing means that less soot and other shyte are sent up in the atmosphere), the radiation cleaner than in Fukushima or Chernobyl and locally decreases rapidly (the increase in cancer deaths after 20 years in Hiroshima/Nagasaki compared to an unexposed population was only in the hundreds, equivalent to the risk of smoking a package a year during that time). And the horrific radiation burns are probably not worse than being melted alive by white phosphorous.
the big no-no over nukes is that they fascinate the imagination of people. So much destruction in one "second". The same or even worse destruction over 3 nights of conventional bombing is so WWII, boring.
This little site is making me afraid that people will think "[I]meh, whatever[/I]" about nuclear detonations.
This is funny to be honest. During the Cold War, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan was the 6th most likely place to be hit with a nuclear bomb from the Soviets because of 2 reasons:
1. Sault Ste. Marie locks (aka the Soo Locks); a major system of locks that help with commerce to/from Lake Superior and Lake Huron. Food crops and raw materials for steel like taconite are transported through there everyday.
2. K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base; Important air fields which were used to transport materials to Alaska. No longer used by the Air Force; instead it has been converted into K.I. Sawyer International Airport for comercial flights.
I lived, but the satellite view really makes me think about that mass of people in downtown...
Oh btw, i used the biggest pakistani nuke
pretty safe from attacks on military & industrial targets unless the ruskies really [I][B]really[/B][/I] hate CCI Blazers. and even then i'd likely be ok because the plant is at the bottom of a 2000 foot canyon 30 miles away. horray for the boonies!
now i just gotta hope they aren't Huskies fans...
Fairly close to a naval base. Doomed.
Even East Los Angeles is still standing
In a weird way, it's comforting to see how small terrorist nuclear devices can be. I live right next to Washington DC and Fort Meade (NSA's HQ), so I live on a juicy bullseye. At least with a terrorist bomb, my plot of suburbia will be fine.
But, if we decide to tango with China or Russia, I'd be royally screwed.
I took "Minuteman" as a template, I'm alive and well in my 15-th century. Nukes kinda overrated
