(Agony Booth)   As far as surviving a nuclear war, Hollywood got some things right and some things wrong. No, you can't ride the blast out hiding inside a refrigerator. Yes, you can make a hazmat suit out of a shower curtain and a soda bottle gas mask   ( agonybooth.com) divider line

I don't want to live in a world where I have to know how to survive a nuclear war using only the contents of my closet and kitchen cleaning supplies.

I want to live in a world where the Fallout series is a GAME we play for ENJOYMENT and not something of a survival manual/simulation used for training purposes.

Nuke war is a fun card game. Games are only fun when no one gets hurt, however. Reality has too much suffering in it as it is to add to it.

I agree but it would be nice to be able to heal a broken leg by eating a few boxes of Fancy Lads Snack Cakes.

Also I would like to be able to buy a packet of Mentats though I wouldn't consume them as I'd worry they would stain my lips and make my eyebrows all wonky.

i'd be the ONE asshole running around constantly sticking everyone with Psycho and Buffout just so I didn't have to carry anything heavy to and from work every day.

"I want never gets". Now get back to making hazmat suits and praying to the golden calf for the strength to subdue humanity on the barren wastelands of the new epoch.

I prepare for all of the apocalypses by not preparing--by reminding myself surviving isn't living. I trust my fellow humans not to repeat mistakes of the past, but if they do, I probably don't really want to be part of humanity any more anyway.  I'm a soft, sweet product of a thousands-of-years manufacturing process that's crafted some of the finest things and people yet.  Admittedly some of the worst things and people too, but good R&D's like that. I know I could survive in an apocalyptic hellscape, but practically none of the people would be worth being around:  the rich, the sociopathic, the paranoid, and the selfish.  So, no; that's where I draw the line at helping.  I'll work ceaselessly to help prevent it, but I'm not rebuilding it if it ever goes that far.  Let some other species have a go.

Nuclear fallout may be a horrible way to die, but surviving a nuclear war is a horrible way to live.   Some things just aren't worth surviving.

ugh, I got mentats mixed up with mentos and thought "what do you mean? that's totally real".

It's going to be one of THOSE days, I can just tell.

You mean eating 50 bags of potato chips won't immediately heal shotgun blasts to the face?

The really important question is, of course, are telepathic canines going to help me find girls?

There is no surviving a nuclear war. You either die immediately, or die a bit later in tremendous suffering.

Eh, kinda like college dorm pot smoke filters?  Take a 20 oz plastic soda bottle cut a few holes in the base of it.  Stuff scented dryer sheets in and exhale into the top of the bottle.

It shows up pretty regularly on the Showtime networks, though I've never watched it and had never heard
of it before, either.  I'm not a big fan of post apocalyptic SF, but it also has Chris Pine, so it has a lot of
acting power.

I recognize that the Fallout series is a form of entertainment and not a realistic guide on how to survive an irradiated wasteland.

I rely upon the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series for real-life tips. That is why I stockpile vodka, because I know that it is cleanses radiation.

I phrase it as, why would I want to live in a world where preppers both have the upper hand and righteous smugness?
