There’s basically nothing you can do but die they’re doing this to give people a sense of safety , even though we full well know this won’t work at all. ALRIGHT KIDDOS LISTEN UP! I did emergency management for the air force which involves this fun thing called Plume Modelling (aka chart the path of death for a given bomb based on its payload, distance, type of detonation, etc) and let me tell you some actual LEGIT™ methods of minimizing damage to your life. Unless you are within the vaporization zone (where you turn into a fucking shadow because of your proximity to the blast) there is a specific order of events nuke blasts cause and there are ways to protect against these things. 1. There is this thing called a flash to bang ratio. It is really freaking important. The first wave from a nuke is a blinding flash of light that can literally FRY YOUR RETINAS. If you believe that a nuke has just dropped on your city, HIDE AND DONT LOOK AT IT. @shesheistyy a good solid table is good for this but you’re way less likely to go blind if you get to an internal room with no windows, especially one below ground. 2. After the flash there will be the bang. If the time between the flash and the bang, counted in Mississippi seconds, is more than 10 seconds you MIGHT survive and just die of cancer later. If it’s between five and 10 buckle up kiddos because the worst is yet to come. And well if it’s less than 3 you won’t live long enough to remember this. These are loose estimates only. 3. The “bang” usually announces the arrival of the fire ball. Yes. A massive heat shock will erupt from the core of the bomb and light pretty much every thing it comes into contact with, including your flesh, on fire. Back to that whole “metal buildings underground” thing. There’s really no getting around the whole getting lit on fire if you’re too close thing. 4. Fallout. When the bomb goes off it sucks all of the shit it just vaporized up into the air with it and as the blast cools, it begins to rain down the radioactive fucked molten wreckage onto everyone in a huge radius. Just because the fallout you can see has stopped doesn’t mean the molecular radiation has stopped. The survival factors for nuclear blasts are time, distance and shielding. The longer it takes for it to get to you the less of it there is. The further away from the source the less dead you are. Want to survive? Put 6 feet of concrete and/or 2 feet of lead between you and everything else. Yes. Those loons with their bunkers actually got something right. NOW! About radiation! If you are so fortunate as to survive one of these blasts and not be vaporized or burnt to a crisp or die of radiation poisoning within hours, you need to understand the types of radiation. Gamma radiation is the most “severe” in that it can penetrate your flesh through your clothes and house, causing severe illness. Gamma radiation fucks with your cell walls and disrupts your DNA. It kills you in hours, months or years. Some people survive decades. Think of gamma like the sun. Too much exposure gives you cancer. Now Beta, on the other hand, think of Beta particles like sand on the beach. Its in the air. Its in your clothes, in the creases of your fingers. But beta particles can burn through your flesh or get into your blood stream through open wounds. Luckily they can be stopped with nonporous materials, like rubber, or foil. Make that two points for the loony conspiracy theorists. Aluminum foil does protect from beta radiation. And finally, Alpha radiation. Think of alpha Radiation like dust motes. It takes a high density filter to prevent you from breathing them in and if you’re surrounded by rubble they’re probably everywhere. Alpha particles do the same thing as beta particles in terms of getting into your system and wrecking your shit. So! Survival? Most likely based on dumb luck. But! If you think you’re being nuked 1. get under ground or at least to an internal room of the building if no other options are available. 2. CLOSE YOUR EYES. Curl into the fetal position to protect your orifices and vital organs from gamma radiation and get low to the ground to reduce damage from the blast and potential ceiling collapse. 3.You will still feel the flash pass over you. Count. One, two, three… If you aren’t vaporized yet keep counting. Pray to every god ever imagined that you get to 10 before you hear the bang. 4. Bang. Try not to shit yourself. The fireball will follow almost instantly if you’re in range. Be prepared to start rolling to put yourself out. 5. Fallout rains down. Do not open your eyes. Do not stop praying. As hard as it is because time will feel as if it has slowed to a crawl, try not to leave your position for at least 30 minutes, although 60 minutes is better. At 30 minutes, only 60% of the potential fall out has fallen but by 60 minutes, up to 90% may have come down. 6. Remember, Alpha and beta radiation are particles. Do not put anything in your body that has not been thoroughly washed, dusted of or came from a sealed package. Point 3 for the conspiracy theorists, hot pockets and canned food are probably still safe. Do not leave shelter without goggles, and try to wrap yourself in a minimum of those weird space blankets but rubber and metal lined suits (like hazmat suits) are best for the job. Good luck in the future apocalypse! Reblogged with improved readability! Look whats Relevant again… I wonder if there’s any where to watch White Light, Black Rain. Saw it back in highschool. History repeats and all that jazz. After all, It’s not like ‘duck and cover’ and other nuclear protection methods of dubious quality weren’t a mainstream in the Cold War or anything… We’ve been here before.

ALRIGHT KIDDOS LISTEN UP! I did emergency management for the air force which involves this fun thing called Plume Modelling (aka chart the path of death for a given bomb based on its payload, distance, type of detonation, etc) and let me tell you some actual LEGIT™ methods of minimizing damage to your life.

Af, Ass, and Cute: Tricky-D @DropsNoPanties So, my stepson has a girl upstairs in his room that stayed the night and my wife doesn't know yet. I'm curious on how he plans to smuggle her out now that the whole family is awake... ...and now we wait Tricky-D @DropsNoPanties People asking for updates: she's still here, the wife has gone into full Saturday house cleaning mode. Stil hasn't noticed the cute white shoes by the door. This could be his chance while she's distracted. Tricky-D @DropsNoPanties 11:00am central standard time...

 @DropsNoPanties
 So, my stepson has a girl upstairs in
 his room that stayed the night and my
 wife doesn't know yet. I'm curious on
 how he plans to smuggle her out now
 that the whole family is awake...
 ...and now we wait
 Tricky-D
 @DropsNoPanties
 People asking for updates: she's still
 here, the wife has gone into full
 Saturday house cleaning mode. Stil
 hasn't noticed the cute white shoes by
 the door. This could be his chance
 while she's distracted.

Being Alone, Friends, and Frozone: honestly tho that scene in the incredibles where mr. incredible sees the names of all the old super heroes that used to be his friends /that he knew from Back in the Day and how every one of them has been killed by syndrome is such a chilling scene for so many reasons like for one, everyone he knew is dead at this point and has been killed on the same island he's at now and two, its heartbreaking be that means that almost every hero wanted to try out being a hero again despite the laws against it and wanted to try and help someone out and relive their glory days, only to be straight up murdered like fuck that scene is just so fuckin intense allthesebees Klds, could you lighten upa litt Let speak I think the core of that scene for me is, when you're insane like me and you go through it frame by främe, you can work out that Gazerbeam defeated the omnidroid twice the only super we have enough information to confirm did so. I always wondered about his body in the cave, how and why he got the password... But it makes sense. This thing goes haywire, and goes haywire again? He must have been hella suspicious! So he does what any good superhero would do tries to get to the bottom of what's really happening on Nomanisan Island. During the process he's clearly caught and wounded but has just enough time to get himself somewhere he can leave a final message, just praying that the next super to come along will find it and break the cycle. Gazerbeam is my hero. doom-exe Incredibles 2 has a lot to live up to All of this and.. I'm just realizing that the name is No Man Is An Island???? As in, everyone needs someone to depend on and connect with, no one is ever completely alone or should act all on their own Also Gazerbeam probably has X-ray vision-so he not only survived long enough to defeat the Omnidroid, he had the ability to see Syndrome entering the password. animagix101 Holy guacamole! I should pay more attention, I don't think got any of that stuff! does anyone think about the fact that now mr. incredibles has to live wi the fact that all his friends getting killed by syndrome could have been avoided if he had just been nicer to syndrome from the beginning breefolk-hates-staff I was thinking that from the beginning reading this and was shocked it went through so many comments before anyone pointed that out. Syndrome waited until his machine was almost ready to go before asking Bob to come to Nomanisan. He also was surprised to find out that he was married to "Elastigirl, which means he likely built his list and went through everyone else before finally deciding it was time to kill Bob. Also, Syndrome literally didn't find Bob until the start of the movie. He found Frozone and was stalking him. If Lucius hadn't hung out with Bob, then Frozone was going to be the next one lured. There's literally a scene of Mirage realizing that the guy in the car with her target is Mr. Incredible. He wasn't going through the list, he was stalking and finding every former Super he could, luring them to the island, and then killing them, for the sake of improving his robot. Finding Bob was just a happy accident, and Syndromes obsession with him meant that upon finding a bot that could beat Bob, he figured he'd hit perfection and was ready. and like, let's be real here in the intro Buddy was crossing the line the second he showed up, Mr. Incredible mentioned he'd been very nice to Buddy, via signing a ridiculous amount of autographs and doing pictures and stuff, and that he was not going to risk a childs life as a sidekick (albeit in less words). Buddy literally showed up by breaking into his car, and then stalked him all evening until he was arrested. That's disturbingly obsessive behavior, there's no amount of niceness that would stop Syndrome, it was an impossible situation. No amount of nice was going to appease Syndrome, the second he faced any sort of rejection from Mr Incredible he was going to lose it and go supervillain. After his arrest he should have gotten put into therapy, but yknow, set in like. the 50's. so it makes sense he fell through the cracks when the cracks were a goddamn canyon. Don't victim blame Mr. Incredible. Source: silwerhawk 108,322 notes Heroism

9/11, America, and Dad: December 20, 2018
 Dear Mr. President:
 I have been privileged to serve as our country's 26th Secretary of Defense which has
 allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the Department in defense of our citizens
 and our ideals
 I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the
 key goals articulated in our National Defense Strategy: putting the Department on a more sound
 budgetary footing, improving readiness and lethality in our forces, and reforming the
 Department's business practices for greater performance. Our troops continue to provide the
 capabilities needed to prevail in conflict and sustain strong U.S. global influence
 One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked
 to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While
 the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or
 serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to thos
 allies. Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States
 should not be the policeman of the world. Instead, we must use all tools of American power to
 provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances
 NATO's 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongsid
 us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further
 proof.
 Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those
 countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China
 and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model
 gaining veto authority over other nations' economic, diplomatic, and security decisions -to
 promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America and our allies. That is
 why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense
 My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign
 actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades o
 immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order
 that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this
 effort by the solidarity of our alliances
 Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better
 aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my
 position. The end date for my tenure is February 28, 2019, a date that should allow sufficient
 time for a successor to be nominated and confirmed as well as to make sure the Department's
 interests are properly articulated and protected at upcoming events to include Congressional
Dad’s resignation letter.
