    interesting that as the size of the warhead increases, the various effects will swap places....

    anyways, even if the 100MT tsar bomba were dropped on toledo, i'd still be uneffected... which is nice.

    check your area:

    Then:

    Nope, I'm good. closest secondary target is on the other side of the Cascades. That map appears to have the closest target situated around Medford but it's rightfully locates east in Klamath Falls at the air base. The silos in the midwest look like they're going to get pounded pretty hard. Bakersfield don't look good. Remember which way the prevailing winds go. The fallout will take
    a toll.

    We've got GE jet engine manufacturing here, plus launch sites, an Air Force base.... So yeah, Cincinnati and the surrounding suburbs would be toast.

    It would take a Tsar bomb in NYC to radiate my sperms.

    The sixties were pretty busy. I couldn't handle the sounds of that vid to make it into the 70's.

    I guess I was pretty ignorant about the total number of detonations. We've basically already had WW3, just very slowly over about 50 years. 2000+ nuclear bombs!!!

    There are old silos spread around here but they're all closed. There's one I drive by all the time-- some rancher stores hey bales inside its fence now.

    Whiteman AFB , where the B2 bombers live, is only 90 miles from here but I can't imagine its a very high-value target. It's heavily bunkered plus the bombers would likely be deployed well before things deteriorated into a toe-to-toe, rootin'-tootin' nuquular slugfest.

    I'd survive any bombardment in the US according to the map, and I'd also survive if Quebec City gets hit.

    If Montreal is targeted, I'm toasted whatsoever.

    If nuclear bombs drop on the province of Quebec, and they are separated, does Canada really care? ;-)

    Depends if you like fallout and loosing wood + hydro - electricity :)

    motherfucker...

    And by the way, separatists are a minority nowadays. Remember that we ejected the Bloc and we chose a federalist party to represent us (NPD)
