[x] This shit is wild. Wtf a table finna do for anybody?? There’s basically nothing you can do but die they’re doing this to give people a sense of safety , even though we full well know this won’t work at all. ALRIGHT KIDDOS LISTEN UP! I did emergency management for the air force which involves this fun thing called Plume Modelling (aka chart the path of death for a given bomb based on its payload, distance, type of detonation, etc) and let me tell you some actual LEGIT™ methods of minimizing damage to your life. Unless you are within the vaporization zone (where you turn into a fucking shadow because of your proximity to the blast) there is a specific order of events nuke blasts cause and there are ways to protect against these things. 1. There is this thing called a flash to bang ratio. It is really freaking important. The first wave from a nuke is a blinding flash of light that can literally FRY YOUR RETINAS. If you believe that a nuke has just dropped on your city, HIDE AND DONT LOOK AT IT. @shesheistyy a good solid table is good for this but you’re way less likely to go blind if you get to an internal room with no windows, especially one below ground. 2. After the flash there will be the bang. If the time between the flash and the bang, counted in Mississippi seconds, is more than 10 seconds you MIGHT survive and just die of cancer later. If it’s between five and 10 buckle up kiddos because the worst is yet to come. And well if it’s less than 3 you won’t live long enough to remember this. These are loose estimates only. 3. The “bang” usually announces the arrival of the fire ball. Yes. A massive heat shock will erupt from the core of the bomb and light pretty much every thing it comes into contact with, including your flesh, on fire. Back to that whole “metal buildings underground” thing. There’s really no getting around the whole getting lit on fire if you’re too close thing. 4. Fallout. When the bomb goes off it sucks all of the shit it just vaporized up into the air with it and as the blast cools, it begins to rain down the radioactive fucked molten wreckage onto everyone in a huge radius. Just because the fallout you can see has stopped doesn’t mean the molecular radiation has stopped. The survival factors for nuclear blasts are time, distance and shielding. The longer it takes for it to get to you the less of it there is. The further away from the source the less dead you are. Want to survive? Put 6 feet of concrete and/or 2 feet of lead between you and everything else. Yes. Those loons with their bunkers actually got something right. NOW! About radiation! If you are so fortunate as to survive one of these blasts and not be vaporized or burnt to a crisp or die of radiation poisoning within hours, you need to understand the types of radiation. Gamma radiation is the most “severe” in that it can penetrate your flesh through your clothes and house, causing severe illness. Gamma radiation fucks with your cell walls and disrupts your DNA. It kills you in hours, months or years. Some people survive decades. Think of gamma like the sun. Too much exposure gives you cancer. Now Beta, on the other hand, think of Beta particles like sand on the beach. Its in the air. Its in your clothes, in the creases of your fingers. But beta particles can burn through your flesh or get into your blood stream through open wounds. Luckily they can be stopped with nonporous materials, like rubber, or foil. Make that two points for the loony conspiracy theorists. Aluminum foil does protect from beta radiation. And finally, Alpha radiation. Think of alpha Radiation like dust motes. It takes a high density filter to prevent you from breathing them in and if you’re surrounded by rubble they’re probably everywhere. Alpha particles do the same thing as beta particles in terms of getting into your system and wrecking your shit. So! Survival? Most likely based on dumb luck. But! If you think you’re being nuked 1. get under ground or at least to an internal room of the building if no other options are available. 2. CLOSE YOUR EYES. Curl into the fetal position to protect your orifices and vital organs from gamma radiation and get low to the ground to reduce damage from the blast and potential ceiling collapse. 3.You will still feel the flash pass over you. Count. One, two, three… If you aren’t vaporized yet keep counting. Pray to every god ever imagined that you get to 10 before you hear the bang. 4. Bang. Try not to shit yourself. The fireball will follow almost instantly if you’re in range. Be prepared to start rolling to put yourself out. 5. Fallout rains down. Do not open your eyes. Do not stop praying. As hard as it is because time will feel as if it has slowed to a crawl, try not to leave your position for at least 30 minutes, although 60 minutes is better. At 30 minutes, only 60% of the potential fall out has fallen but by 60 minutes, up to 90% may have come down. 6. Remember, Alpha and beta radiation are particles. Do not put anything in your body that has not been thoroughly washed, dusted of or came from a sealed package. Point 3 for the conspiracy theorists, hot pockets and canned food are probably still safe. Do not leave shelter without goggles, and try to wrap yourself in a minimum of those weird space blankets but rubber and metal lined suits (like hazmat suits) are best for the job. Good luck in the future apocalypse! Reblogged with improved readability! Look whats Relevant again… I wonder if there’s any where to watch White Light, Black Rain. Saw it back in highschool. History repeats and all that jazz. After all, It’s not like ‘duck and cover’ and other nuclear protection methods of dubious quality weren’t a mainstream in the Cold War or anything… We’ve been here before. It’s just the first time around for us younger crowd. Stay safe.

 They are indeed purple
 But one thing you've missed
 The concept of "purple
 Didn't always exist.
 Some cultures lack names
 For a color, you see
 Hence good old Homer
 And his "wine-dark sea.
 A usage so quaint,
 A phrasing so old,
 For verses of romance
 Is sheer fucking gold
 So roses are red.
 Violets once were called blue

 But what else is new?

 My friend you're not wrong
 About Homer's wine-ey sea!

 But the word purple
 You've given short shrift.
 The concept of purple

 And refers to a pigment

 Meant that in Rome
 to wear purpura
 was a privilege reserved
 For only the emperor!
 The word purple',

 Entered English

 Why then are voilets

 The dye from this mollusc,
 known for so long
 Is almost magenta;
 More red than blue
 The concept of purple
 is old, and yet new
 The dye is red
 So this might be true
 Roses are purple

 While this song makes me merry,
 Tyrian purple dyes many a hue

Why in the world do these kids who are supposed to be his friends call him Dumbo? Who thought it was a good idea to make a talking animal movie human centered? That stupid ass slowed down indie remix of “baby mine” is as hilarious as it is awful. Somebody tell Hollywood that you don’t need a slowed down indie remix in every movie trailer. Horrifying CGI is horrifying Why do we keep letting Tim Burton ruin Disney Classics? 1. Becuase its been a weird thing that Dumbo’s name has only ever been an insult and he never had a real name. 2. Not a rehash of the original? Isnt that a good thing? 3. No comment on that. 4. I’ve seen worse 5. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ He absolutely did have a real name did you not read right there where I said it was Jumbo? Literally the whole point of a remake is to be a remake of the original? Change it too much and it’s a reboot. 1. Call me crazy but I swear Jumbo was his mom’s name, and one of the elephants was like “oh look, he’s like a little Jumbo!” And that one bitch was like “with those ears? Nah, he’s Dumbo.” 2. The point is to make money, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this was more of a tax/copyright/contract thing. His name was definitely Jumbo Jr. because the stork character sings “happy birthday Jumbo Jr.“ at the very beginning of the movie do not fight me on this. Their family last name was JumboHis mom was called Mrs. Jumbo right? In the clip above she very specifically says that his name is Jumbo jr. I’m going to assume that as circus elephants, they don’t have surnames.

Who thought it was a good idea to make a talking animal movie human centered?
That stupid ass slowed down indie remix of “baby mine” is as hilarious as it is awful. Somebody tell Hollywood that you don’t need a slowed down indie remix in every movie trailer.
Horrifying CGI is horrifying
Why do we keep letting Tim Burton ruin Disney Classics?


1. Becuase its been a weird thing that Dumbo’s name has only ever been an insult and he never had a real name.
2. Not a rehash of the original? Isnt that a good thing?
3. No comment on that.
4. I’ve seen worse
5. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


He absolutely did have a real name did you not read right there where I said it was Jumbo?
Literally the whole point of a remake is to be a remake of the original? Change it too much and it’s a reboot.


1. Call me crazy but I swear Jumbo was his mom’s name, and one of the elephants was like “oh look, he’s like a little Jumbo!” And that one bitch was like “with those ears? Nah, he’s Dumbo.”
2. The point is to make money, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this was more of a tax/copyright/contract thing.


His name was definitely Jumbo Jr. because the stork character sings “happy birthday Jumbo Jr.“ at the very beginning of the movie do not fight me on this.

Their family last name was JumboHis mom was called Mrs. Jumbo right?

In the clip above she very specifically says that his name is Jumbo jr. I’m going to assume that as circus elephants, they don’t have surnames.
