  1. Don’t be anywhere in the area. That’s about it.

  2. you really don’t want too

  3. like an airliner crash. put your head between your legs and kiss your butt goodbye

    Be able, for a start, to live underground for about 10 years.

  5. You could always throw down a bubble sheild but they only last like 30 seconds and you need to be protected for at least 10 years so no there is nothing you can do.

  6. lay down really flat with your head in the direction of the blast so that you present the narrowist profile to the shockwave. Lay as flat as possible keeping your arms on the ground but having them bent so that your hands can protect your face.

    You’re pretty much screwed.

    Seriously though, does anybody remember that from basic? I do. It was hilarious.

  7. Run the other way, and just keep on running… OR be in a nuclear bunker.

  8. There are two major techniques that will help a lot. Neither is easy to do and the second is quite expensive.

    1) Set up your life so you don’t live in or near a major city or large military base. These are what are called “strategic targets”. If a nuclear war went on long enough, even small cities and bases might get hit; after all, they’re secondary targets. But for sure, cities like NYC or Atlanta and bases like Parris Island or Offutt AFB are going to get hit first.

    2) Get access to a secure underground shelter protected by at least ten feet of concrete or natural rock. It needs to have a high quality air filtration system, a hatch designed to resist “overpressure” (ie, shock waves from nuclear explosions) , and sufficient supplies to say inside for at least a year.

    If you can do both of these, you have a very good chance of surviving a nuclear holocaust. If you can only do one, well you have a good chance. If you do neither, then you still have a chance because some people will make it through on sheer dumb luck. Personally, I prefer to be in control of my destiny than to rely on luck….
