Duck and Cover!

Dear Readers:

Over the past several weeks we have had three or four articles on stuff from the cold war era, and how two Russians on separate occasions saved the world from nuclear annihilation.

Today I ran across this old newsreel about what to do if there ever was a nuclear attack and the information they give you is not totally correct.

People at that time still didn't realized the full impact of a nuclear explosion so the advice to "duck and cover' when you saw the flash of a nuclear bomb was O.K. as far as that goes, but they forgot to mention that you should then put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye!


Anyway, I hope this all helps (it won’t), or at least makes you feel a little better (it might but it really shouldn’t). Again, the best advice I can give you is to either avoid a nuclear attack altogether by being somewhere else that’s not experiencing a nuclear attack, or to hope you’re killed instantly. Good luck

(Two points here: First I was there for this civil defense insanity, and it scared the shit out of us ......, and second, if you ever get the chance to see the movies "On the Beach" (1959) "Fail Safe" (1964) "By Dawn's Early Light" and "Dr. Strangelove" then by all means watch them!)
