Advice on Nukes ... from the Same Bastards Who Make Them

The growing number of articles on 'what to do if the nukes come' are part of a cynical effort to sell the survivability of a nuke war so it should come as a surprise that the latest comes from Business Insider:  If a nuclear bomb is dropped on your city, here's where you should run and hide.

No matter what else comes from a nuke war, multiple companies are making a fuckload of money on it through construction of nuclear munitions and the design / manufacture more of them.  All of those companies have American billionaires behind them so, when the world burns, there won't be the faintest doubt about who did it.

America invented the goddamned things and now the country sets up to finish the job by killing the planet altogether but seeks to create a false sense of security before that happens by trying to make people believe it's survivable.

People who survive a nuclear blast may be exposed to radioactive ash and dust called fallout.

Finding a good shelter as soon as possible and going inside is critical to surviving fallout.

A scientist has come up with a strategy for when and whether to move to a better fallout shelter.

Watson:  they're trying to dumb it down to sell it

Very good, Watson.

Remember the fundamental maxim of Washington:  when you can sell it to idiots, it doesn't matter what the intelligentsia thinks.

So you might be wondering, "If I survive a nuclear-bomb attack, what should I do?"

Michael Dillon, a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researcher, crunched the numbers and helped figure out just that in a 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical and Physical Sciences.

Likewise, government agencies and other organizations have also explored the harrowing question and came up with detailed recommendations and response plans.

That makes Michael Dillon the first citizen anywhere on the planet who ever said a nuke war is survivable and that leads only to one question:  how much did Washington pay him to say it.  Obviously governmental organizations say a nuke war is survivable since they're Washington's marketing division.

We saw the most furiously incompetent candidates for this last election season than we have ever had to endure previously and there's a tremendous implied refrain in play just now, "This wouldn't have happened with Hillary Clinton."

In fact, it probably would have happened sooner since that warmongering fool couldn't wait to start waving her whanger at Putin.  And she can do it.  Check out the WIKI and you will find Michael Dillon was the first man to receive a penile transplant.  WIKI:  Michael Dillon

He's not the same fellow as nuclear Michael Dillon but I thought it was an amusing coincidence when the Pentagon and the most virulent of conservatives have been using nukes for artificial penises for decades.

Michael Dillon, however, is not amusing in any way.

You are in a large city that has just been subjected to a single, low-yield nuclear detonation, between 0.1 and 10 kilotons.

This is much less powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima — about 15 kilotons. However, it's not unlikely when looking at weapons like the new B61-12 gravity bomb, which is built by the US, maxes out at 50 kilotons, and can be dialed down to 0.3 kilotons. (Russia and Pakistan are working on similar so-called "tactical" nuclear weapons.)

If you're not familiar with circular logic, welcome aboard.  America dropped the first one which should scare the fuck out of you but now it says, "Oh, don't worry.  The ones we make today are much smaller so it won't be as bad as Hiroshima."

You may have noticed one other tiny detail:  the bombs which fall on America won't come from that fucking new B-61 bomb which Obama sponsored.

Ed:  other than wanting to dig out Dillon's eyes with a rusty spoon, what else needs to be done about him?

Nothing.  He disgraces science and he had a great future ... he doesn't have one now.  He couldn't be any more of a Pentagon fuck buddy if he showed up at the Pentagon door with knee pads and a cheery smile.

Obama already disgraced himself and he's off in Europe playing Big Bucks and No Whammies for the post-Presidential booty call tour.  What an asshole.

How about this for a bet:  look for anything else Michael Dillon published which has any real scientific significance.  The Rockhouse bet is there won't be much.

Ed:  what's the ante?

Only your fucking life, mate.

Pink sent the link to me and I'm not sure if he believes it but he's a highly-intelligent man and his purpose may simply be to make the observation of, holy shit, look what those crazy bastards are trying to pitch now.
