This, and after 15 years of Runglish I learned that lesson well.>>69790
[implying nukes will still be flying nine hours later]
It does not even ascend to that level. You'd literally learn more by an afternoon playing DEFCON than this clickbait idiocy. I didn't even need to watch beyond that point but did anyway and then it does insanely stupid shit like for example not give any idea on the altitude of those readings, which btw nuclear winter is a bit overblown. However that being stated, mean temperature fluctuations have a more dramatic impact than people realize, and yes if a single volcano can lead to famines that lead to wars I guarantee you that in addition to the modern world being smoldering useless ruble that there's now blotted out sun, yes survivors are in for a hard time.
In fact the biggest irony, I think, is the fact that that stupid zoomer video actually downplays
how dramatically bad it is going to be over long term, because now not just the cities got vaporized, not just the heavy industry to build replacement equipment was targeted, and not even that infrastructure is destroyed with no hope for repairs, but now also you have heavily irradiated topsoil everywhere with darkened skies and freezing temperatures to promote even more crop failures. World thermonuclear war means, in effect, that several billions of people are actually going to die in approximately five years or less. The irony being the fact that this video somehow shows this ongoing war which in reality is going to be over within three hours tops, not counting the alleged provocations and time from first tactical nuke over troop and armour columns or fleets to first targeted civilian buildups, and at the same time wildly downplays the cascade failures and pretty much in boomer tier logic anything other than the blasts. Like let us take for example this guy>>69830
who I was right about being a retarded proxy shitposter btw, and see in his boomer/mindset the example of "oh it's far away I'll be fine." I guarantee you this boy lives in some backwater speaking a shitty unintelligible gibberish dialect of German, which is the same mentality I saw in all those idiots of 2020 who somehow believed "it's just a coof in China and Iran and Spain, oh NYC now and oh now it's in my state well I live in a smalltown so I'll be fine" living in a certain ethnic group's useless cornfield reservations on the interior of our continent. They could not even fathom the outside world having an impact on changing their self absorbed boomer lives and daily habits.
This is not only truly false in a nuclear war in a globalized highly interdependent economy no less, but also laughably so because the living shall envy the dead. I spoke a cheerful Slavic optimism to a worried family member only a couple weeks ago when I mentioned how I'll be vapourized, and they'll die in frozen mud with us anyway. That's too say, I'm blessedly within enough blast radius I'm fully expecting not just to see a flash or get pulverized by blast but also hopefully be taken up into the clouds to meet Jeebus once more. Any who aren't
in the situation should be more fearful, because it means that first of all you are going to burn to death like it's Dresden and Tokyo, and second of all you're likely going to be trapped under said burning ruble, in extreme pain and fearful agony. If you should somehow not slowly asphyxiate while being burned to death, which btw the thermal flash of a thermonuclear device stretches many miles into your suburbs and in case of the largest bombs can set trees and houses on fire straight into the countryside, then this still leaves the problem of you being trapped under crushed ruble with no way to call for help or any meaningful hope of rescue. Kurzgesagt did a pretty decent video on the subject of basically what one lone terrorist nuke could do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iPH-br_eJQ
With no roads or railways leading into or out of the city anymore, and with most equipment and personnel destroyed within that zone, it's going to literally be physically impossible to rescue you, which is going to account for the overwhelming majority of deaths within the first three days. Those that don't get rescued are probably just going to die of thirst eventually if they don't succumb to their wounds, and with death a foregone conclusion each addition minute or even second of survival is more like just being cursed by an angry God than a blessing. Those most blessed are going to be the ones who get vapourized and brought up into the clouds like some sort of Rapturebefore raining back down some hours later to slowly poison to death their unluckily surviving countrymen
It's in the weeks and months to come that you should see the deathtoll rising up sharply and dramatically as a Stalin-esque cannibal island scenario plays out, albeit one with radiationhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaOwcYLGTMo
So now imagine you're somehow emerging from the metro in the case of Americans there almost are none, only the Soviets and some euros planned to try and help anyone other than politicians, rich celebrities, and wealthy elites to survive so basically unless you're an elite whose kids are in the Andover or Exeter nuclear bunker expect fallout and suffering
and you managed to survive the worst radiation on top of it. The world you emerge into is going to be a burnt irradiated wasteland with no food, no utilities, no roads, and small roaming bands of brigands and cannibals, liekly to include said metro sheltering survivors. Many of these will still end up dying of Chernobyl tier cancers within months to years anyway, or succumbing to opportunistic infections, since the fallout is just going to blanket the northern hemisphere and poison absolutely everyone and everything. I guarantee you most people aren't going to be smart enough to decontaminate before entering their shelters so they're going to track fallout in there anyway.
