Anyone want to think of the destruction of life as we know it?

Here is what happens if all the nuclear bombs go off at the same time.


This is what happens if there are no human beings to keep things repaired.
So if you survive what will do to return life to comforts we take for granted?

How about life as Kevin Cosner movies portray it?



What do you think is most important to our survival?

Obviously you are too young to have lived through the "Duck and Cover" era of the 50s and 60s.

There are a lot of movies about nuclear destruction. A good one is "On the Beach", but "Dr. Strangelove" is one of the funniest. A similar story, so close there was a lawsuit, is "Fail Safe". A lot of B-movies too like "Panic in the Year Zero". A more recent classic is 1983's "The Day After", rumored to have spurred President Reagan into pushing forward arms reduction treaties.

To find out how people survive, just visit places like Detroit.
Detroit has water and sewage, electricity, a police force, all the services of civilization. There are probably homeless people who do not have adequate services but like the rats and pigions, they are surviving in a manmade environment. Just for the fun of it, the question is how do we survive when that is all gone. No law and order and no one to enforce law and order. No services and no cell phones or electric bills. No farm corporations, food chains to shoplift from, hospitals. Just a mass of humanity trying to reinvent the conditions of survival.

The death toll in the West would be high - anyone dependent on drugs - diabetics, strokes, transplant rejection, etc. would die without their meds. & I don't know how many people have the right skills to hunt for their food (or raise it), prepare & cook it, & preserve any excess. The cities would probably have to be abandoned - not enough supplies (food & water) to keep enough people alive.
