This Map Tells You If You'll Be Vaporized By An Atomic Bomb

PHEW. WOULDISURVIVEANUKE.COM

We hate to get all melodramatic on you, but there’s one or two "larger than life" personalities who have just ascended to power (in case you missed the news), plenty more of these characters already ensconced on their thrones, millions of angry citizens in the world, and 15,000 nuclear bombs lying around. It all sounds like a cocktail even Dr Strangelove would find too strong.

So, if you’ve got Cold War 2 anxiety and are curious to see if you’d survive a nuclear war, head over to WouldISurviveaNuke.com. It may go down due to a heavy traffic load, but don't worry. Wait a while and it will come back up.

All you need to do is tap in your location and you’ll get a map showing you the blast radius of a range of different strength nukes, and even a “Dinosaur-ending meteor” mode. The circles denote First Degree Burns, Second Degree Burns, Third Degree Burns, and Death. Fun for all the family!

It's all just a bit of a joke, although it does give you some insight into the massive power of these weapons. Nevertheless, the website does have the rather discerning disclaimer, "This site is not intended to influence you or anyone else to make decisions regarding the safety of you or of anyone else in the event of a nuclear or any other type of attack."
