    Here's a dumb question. What is the point of surviving a fallout nowadays?

    I feel like this could be made into an ominous psychological thriller movie, where the audience follows a main character who feels he is in a movie, and constantly talks to the audience. And through this we would see his development and how a fallout would affect a persons thinking over time.

    Lol the TSAR Bomba was 50 megatonnes of TNT, over 3 times as powerful as castle bravo. Think about that ; that's 50 megatonnes of TNT, or 50 BILLION KILOGRAMS OF TNT, or 110.231 BILLION POUNDS OF TNT for all you American folks. Let's put that in perspective ; the allies combined dropped 3.4 megatonnes of bombs in world war 2. That single Tsar Bomba had 14.7 times as much power as all the bombs dropped by the allies in world war 2, and a little over 9 times the power of all the bombs dropped in world war 2. Seriously ; 50 megatonnes would completely destroy an entire massive city and everything around it for miles. Drop that in the middle of New York and NukeMap estimates 8.5million people killed and 4.5 million injured seriously. Drop that in Tokyo and nukemap estimates 14.5 million dead and 12.5 million seriously injured. That's one bomb capable of inflicting double the military deaths of the soviet union during all of world war 2 within the blink of an eye.

    At the same time there is a case to be made that nukes have made the world safer. Because of their threat we have not had a major war between major powers since world war 2 (Vietnam does not count ; it was not directly between two major world powers, but between one major power and a puppet/proxy state of the soviets).

    The funny thing [NOT] is that all the nukes in the world will not be our demise, instead a super bacteria that will be resistant to all known antibiotics, which we have been using mindlessly on ourselves and our livestock for years now. Shame
