6/8/2002: India/Paki fallout map

Hmm.. I didn't realize it would get into Africa. That sucks, because there's a lot of really cool research going on in the Great Rift Valley.

If it goes nuclear, India may be hurting... but Pakistan will cease to exist as a country. India has one big advantage going for it: More area.

I hope the Saudis see this, because in such an exchange it looks like Pakistan would essentially be pissing in the wind towards their Muslim brothers on the Arabian Peninsula and in East Africa. Maybe they can exert some pressure on the Pakis to not be so stupid.

If the dust from the Gobi desert reaches Arizona in 6 days, there's a good probability that nuclear fallout from an India/Pakistan war would directly affect the USA, which wouldn't be protected by selfish, isolationist foreign policies.

You can all keep your nuclear weapons and nuclear power we are quite happy without them.

We love our nuclear power!
Without nuclear power the United States wouldn't have nearly as much electrical generating capability as it has for the powering of giant lasers and sound systems, nor would we have such a great source of raw material for the cheap manufacture of glow sticks.

This situation reminds me of the book "On the Beach" by Nevil Shute, which deals with the after-effects of a fictional nuclear war.

However, I'm not sure about the prevailing wind patterns depicted here because as everyone knows: China sucks!

I have a friend that's in China right now for school (Shanghai). She tells me that even though she digs chinese food, she is eating some <b>weird</b> shit right now. She also noted that she tends to get a lot of looks, namely because she's <b>pale</b> (like me) and they're <b>not</b>.
