Call me paranoid, but I spend nearly every waking moment contemplating whether or not I’d survive a massive nuclear strike. I mean, weirder stuff has happened, guys! Luckily we can now pinpoint our chances with the precision of Google Maps.
Would I Survive a Nuke is an aptly named site, giving you exactly the answer to that question with simple graphics and an abundance of apocalyptic options. In my scenario, with a one megaton Minuteman missile kicked right into the centre of New York City, my outer-borough abode is pretty much screwed: even in Brooklyn, I’m covered in third-degree burns and dead within days. Ugh. If only I could handle a longer commute, I might have gotten away with mere radiation sickness.
For a fun Sunday activity, try cranking up the ordnance to a higher megatonnage, and expand the nuclear holocaust to as many cities as you’d like! Golly. Pair this site up with the radioactive materials map and have yourself a nice nervous breakdown. [Would I Survive a Nuke via TNW]
Note: I have a feeling WISaN is a better executed ripoff and/or “implementation” of CarlosLabs’ nifty Ground Zero map. So props to them too!
