    Why would they have kids get under their desk? How much protection would that give if an A-bomb was dropped anywhere within their state!!!

    I wouldn't want to survive if my loved ones were gone. I do take resonable percautions for natural disasters, (moving to the basement for tornadoes) but a nuclear disaster, nope. I also get my flu shot each year but that's all.

    I tend not to worry about what is going to happen because there is nothing I can do about it anyway. But that being said,I will be as prepared as possible. The younger generation seems to freak out at the slightest problem , at least the ones here. I am glad I grew up poor and in a area of the US that still had outhouses ,no central heat, wood stoves and no running water. Copper mining area of the late 50s and early 60s in AZ. I can grow my own food , kill my own animals ,(if need be,, yuck though) . Sew , cook on a wood stove, and all the other things that will need to be done. I figure if me and mine are going to survive what ever , if its surviveable, I don't have time to wail and worry, won't be on my knees either except to plant or clean. I will be working.
    In my way of thinking watching these sci fi movies is a form of education, maybe if we listen we can stop it happening. How many things in old sci fi movies are around today?

    I haven't seen the movie but I do have some emergency stuff stashed. I have been laughed at about having extra water, etc. on hand. When the power grid went down a few years ago, I had light (oil lamp), I had iced tea (extra ice in freezer was put into smaller cooler for use in keeping milk fresh and iced drinks), I had coffee in the morning (gas stove and camping coffee pot). I could even flush my toilet with water from the rain barrels. I don't get laughed at as much since then.
