1960 ... between you and disaster!

    All in all, it's just another brick in the wall.

    Ya know, just go out and greet the bomb with open arms and get it over with.
    A slow, smelly death is not romantic in any way.

    I had cabin fever after just three days inside during the last winter storm. Hard to imagine 'life' in this cell during a nuclear winter.

    That'll show the Commies. We're ready for anything they can dish out. Oh, I'm not saying we won't get our hair mussed...

    I know a family that has pretty much that exact shelter in their basement. They use it for storage, and as a tornado safe room.
  • Hello Chicago 1y

    Michael Paul Smith I agree. Think of the hell that will greet you when you emerge. Also, I don't believe the radioactivity will be gone in just 6 months. I can see many other uses for this tiny room.

    Hello Chicago But you will be able to spot the turnips in the dark........
  • Hello Chicago 1y

    Paul In case I get hungry.
  • Paul PRO 1y

    Hello Chicago Do you not like turnips? Even ones that cook themselves?
  • James Vaughan PRO 1y

    Michael Paul Smith Hello Chicago

    ... you need to hope you're pretty close- within a couple miles of a ground zero for a multi-megaton blast - otherwise you'll just get burned, cut and broken and suffer a slow agonizing death.

    I saw that film "The Road" with Viggo Mortenson in the lead role........what an utterly depressing movie. I imagine that it would be close enough to the reality of a post apocalyptic world.
  • Badger 23 / jezevec PRO 1y

    I always think of it like the movie "The Postman." Imagine trying to endure nearly three hours of a Kevin Costner movie. Brutal.

    ♫ Yes we're gonna have a wingding
    A summer smoker underground
    It's just a dugout that my dad built
    In case the reds decide to push the button down
    We've got provisions and lots of beer
    The key word is survival on the new frontier ♫
  • Mark Seatvet 1y

    I have one of these but I call it a darkroom! Great find, James!!!!
  • Paul PRO 1y

    Badger 23 / jezevec The Postman - a film that failed to deliver, apparently. Never seen it.

    We lived 10 miles from Whiteman AFB in 1960. Didn't bother with a shelter

    I used to live on a SAC base. By the time I was school age, they had dropped "Duck And Cover" for us. They still taught it to the civilians. We didn't have underground shelters but the base commander told us we could use the gravel pit north of the base if we needed to. Yeah, we all felt pretty confidant.

    Geez, it already looks like a bomb hit it. Not exactly Farnham's Freehold.
  • John 1y

    Looks like he's thinking, "Wow, I'm going to this my man-cave!"

    This mason appears to be 'painting himself into a corner'.
