BOOOM! Head for the basement

by bryan kennedy on Dec. 16th, 2010

When's the last time you thought about what to do in the event of a nuclear explosion? I can't even remember that annoying Emergency Broadcast System klaxon interrupting a TV or radio program lately. Well, if it does come to that, the Obama administration is delicately trying to inform you of some new scientific research, that suggests you shouldn't make like Jason Robards and flee the city. Instead, head to the basement for a few days and a surprisingly large number of us might survive. OK...back to not really worrying about this.

But, maybe I'll buy a couple more cans of soup for my little slice of post nuclear winter basement fun.

Unlike a tornado, this is one case where I won't peek my head outside to see what's really happening before heading down to the basement.

Unfortunately, if there is a BOOOM of this magnitude your head might already be in the basement before you get down.
