Hiya Kids! 🚀
They made us do this same stupid shit in the 1950s. We would have regular drills in the halls of the school—“duck and cover.”
Or we’d all jump under our desk and hold our heads….
It made everybody feel like “something’s being done, about those damned Ruskies, by God!”
Later I read it was all bullshit. Those were WWII tactics against iron HE bombs, maybe 500 pounders.
In a real nuclear attack, there is ZERO survival within the blast radius, which is miles.
So—“duck and cover,” is just more bullshit to fuck with your brain 🤠
Remember those rules for surviving an atom bomb explosion near your neighborhood? Neither do we, thankfully, but now the CDC will issue a helpful new guide to reinstitute that mid-20th-century form of existential Cold War dread.
