Survive . . . This!

Slate is producing a multi-part story on how to survive man-made and natural disasters.

You may laugh and think it's funny (and I do) but if you can learn one useful thing from these articles, then it's time well spent. I am not advocating that you go out and stockpile clean water and radiation suits in your basement, but it might be helpful to remember when a nuclear blast occurs that you should run perpendicular to the windflow of the fallout cloud.

I watch Survivorman now and again and I find it interesting television. Will it help me live and escape from an isolated Costa Rican jungle? Probably not, but it might help me avoid eating the wrong sort of berry. Who knows?

The first entry is how to survive a nuclear bomb attack. And yes, you WILL survive it, so you'd better learn how to deal with it.
