YOU CANNOT SURVIVE AN ATOMIC BOMB!

There are many “geniuses” (note quotes) who say you can survive an atomic bomb.  Well, they are being disingenuous (pretending that they know less [about atomic bomb survival] than they really know).  Here are the facts:

  1. If you are at ground zero (where the bomb explodes) you are vaporized instantly.
  2. If you are ten miles away, you survive but are dead in two weeks.
  3. If you are ten to fifty miles away, you survive but are dead in a month.
  4. If you are fifty to one hundred miles away, you survive but are dead in a year.

So, with the false alarm of an incoming missile, everyone who received the false alarm would have been dead in a year.  This includes people who went into a sewer system, the deepest underground basement, or any of the existing, private bomb shelters.
