11:58 pm - When You see the White Flash Duck and Cover...Nuclear Safety for Children


Seriously...no wonder my parent's generation were scared silly...and yet, good luck with the covering yourself with a newspaper. Yep, that'll help.

*L* One of our profs showed this to us...it made me laugh :) Worth a watch!



Here's another one...I'm not sure washing your fruit with radioactive water is a great way to clean it, but it's still an interesting look into Nuclear PSA (though this is the more boring of the two vids)



And this one is kinda an interesting look at the various materials of the time set to a 1950s song





You know, it's kinda interesting my generation really isn't that fearful of such things. Maybe because we're complacent, maybe because when we were born it was just a fact of life?

We feel so powerless to do anything about it - years and years of protests seem to have had little or no effect - that we've decided there's no point worrying about it.
If some idiot decides to start an all-out nuclear war, well, we'll just have to die a bit sooner than we'd planned.

Hmmm....yes, I think you're right. It's not like it's something the average person has any control of at all...either it'll come or it won't and there's no point in dwelling on something so beyond our control.

'Sometimes the bomb might explode without a warning!'

How many times did they think this was going to happen? *cries a little*

Yes...well. I do like the two classifications though: "With warning" and "without warning"

Watch Cabin Fever That will give you a nice healthy fear of flesh-eating viruses. Fear of nukes is so 60s. Bioterror is where it's at! =)

I saw that in theatres! A little too typical horror for me though :)

whoa. That's really interesting.Funny/sad...

But I think that hidden bombs in our mail, auditoriums and airplanes might be the modern equivalent.

This is true! They're certainly more personal anyway.

Not really. We're just better informed as to the destructive power of nuclear weaponry. And we've seen more explosions.

Here's a scary thought. You know in the early 1900s the health-nut cause du jour was radioactive bottled water?

*L* That surprises me not at all.

I just hope not too many people died from it though :(

God - these are so fantastic. I remember having nuclear war drills where we all went into the basement of the school and ducked and covered. I also remember laying awake all night waiting for the bomb. Well, each generation has their own particular paranoia...
