  • I think I'd look on the back of my CV to see the blast radius of the nuclear tonnage which was winging its way towards me and see if I could "Get the hell outta there!". Failing that I'd probably just put some Factor 10^10 sun block on and enjoy the light show.
  • 10 minutes isn't really a long time to get anywhere far enough away especially if everyone else in the area is rushing to get away as well so I would probably stay.
  • No point going anywhere with 10 minutes, i'll probably Bag it til the bitter end :D
  • I would hold my son tight, and tell him I love him one last time.
  • I'd try to find a good spot to view the spectacle.
  • I would run as I would run in Olympic Games!!!
  • well theres nothing i would do but call my family and pray..
  • I would check to see if there was a fallout shelter close that i could get to.... and I would do my best to get my imediate family there.. sorry mother in law and grandma.. oh and i dont know if i'd wake up my roomate.. I would grab my DS's.. and a camera... but thats about it. the rest can be looted later.
  • Ten minutes is not going to put much distance between it and you..not enough to make much difference, anyway. Still, survival instinct is pretty strong so I would probably try to outrun it..however futile that may be.
  • I would ring all my loved ones get them together and run to hide. but I want to save everyone in this world and all the animals and living things, so I doubt it very much I would run just to save me and my family,rather face the problem with everyone else actually.
  • Ten minutes is a very short time to escape. Even if you left in your automobile, within ten minutes, the blast would catch up to you and cause havoc, especially with nuclear fallout. Let face it, if your question ever comes to pass, a persons destiny will be decided within a 20 minute period of time. Stand and face the music and i will see you on the flip side.
  • There would'nt be enough time to engage in any sexual activity with a beutiful woman, so that would be out of the question, the reality of the situation would'nt allow me to concentrate anyway so skip that. knowing that the ICBMs were to impact north america. I would tell the persons in my family to hurry up and put on your sunday best clothes, we would meet in the main dinning room, upon every one arriving i would pull out my 60year old Remy martin and pour a stiiff shot for everone no matter the age and take the biggest swallow i could along with my other family mebers and put on a cd audio coverage of the 1985 live aid coverage of the band queen "another one bites the dust and play as fu#%$ng loud as possible and be with the ones i love and keep it playing until i had to use the generator and continue playing until there was an all clear, or we became dust our selves
  • I would stay. I mean, what would be the point in leaving? The only thing I'd do is make a frantic attempt to call my children if they weren't with me so that I could have a few last words with them.
  • I'd call state parliament and say "So THIS is what the ANZUS alliance is all about. Secede! Secede!"
  • I would stay with my family around me and wait for glorious, pain-free vaporization and oblivion. First I would try to make sure I was close enough not to survive.
  • I would gather my family around and stay. 10 minutes is not enough time to get away from the blast and I wouldn't want to be alive for the fallout afterwards. (ie Nuclear Winter, total destruction of that area, health problems by radiation exposure, etc).
  • I would stay and think of all my family, school friends and pets. Then I would smile and close my eyes.
  • Leave and go where? You would have to travel something like 250 miles before little or no effect on you. 250 miles in 10 minutes? It ain't going to happen and I will be kissing my ass goodbye.
  • Curl up with my family and wait to die.
  • Even if ten minutes was enough time to get away, everyone and his mom would be thinking the same thing, so getting in a car would be useless and trying to go on foot would be too slow. I guess I would round up as many of my loved ones as I could and spend our last few minutes together.
  • I'd be kicking back on the porch with a six-pack and a fat hooter and watch the sh*t go down. Ten minutes ain't nothing but if my husband had already built the underground shelter/bunker he has been talking about, I imagine we would kick back there instead.
  • OK. I would get everyone out of the house and into the car, drive toward the outskirts of the city (as far as you can go in 10 min) placing a large hill between me and the city center. I'd shut of the vehicle (as I understand it a vehicle which has the ignition on during a nuclear blast has all the electroncs burned out and becomes inoperable) Cover myself and the passengers with anything available, insuring Noone looks skyward, Wait for the blast and a short while until the after effects of the blast pass, start the vehicle and get the heck out of Dodge. The success depends on whether The distance between me and the blast is sufficient, whether the hill shields some of the blast, whether shutting off the engine saves it and whether the coverings are sufficient to shield the passengers from the heat. Sure beats staying home.
  • i woulld leave as soon as i heard about it. The only belongings I would take with me would be my clothes, playstation 2, and tv.
  • 10 MINS I WOULD FIND MY MY CD THAT HAS STAIRWAY TO HAVEN AND CRANK IT UP . AND IF I TIME IT RIGHT WHEN THE SONGS ENDS . THE LIGHT SHOW STARTS . AND REMEMBER THAT SAYING " PARTY ON DUDE " " IT IS NOT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY BUT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY HAS DONE TO YOU " "READ MY LIPS NO MORE TAXES " AND THEN I WILL BE HAPPY CAUSE I WOULD BE ABLE TO ANSWER THE MOST ASKED QUESTIONS ON EVERYONES MIND . 1: DO YOU SEE A TUNNEL OF LIGHT WHEN YOU DIE ? 2: WILL I GO TO HEAVEN OR HELL ? 3: WHY DID MICHEAL JACKSON WANT TO BE WHITE ANYWAY ? \\\\EVERYONE NEEDS A LAUGH SOMETIMES ////////////
  • Assuming a 1megaton bomb (80 hiroshimas), or less, I would simply drive away fast and survive. 10 miutes at 60mph should be enough to survive the initial blast, given appropriate shielding (IE get out of car away from potential flying objects, and stay low). Then as long as you get 300-400 miles away in the first day, things should be "fine". http://www.nationalterroralert.com/nuclear/
  • I'd stay. There's no way I could get to a safe distance within ten minutes.
  • There's nowhere I could go in ten minutes that would affect whether I lived or died, so I would probably just freak out in my home until it dropped.
  • I would climb up onto the roof and watch it and then with any luck, be dead soon after. Stop worrying.
  • I work in a nuclear bunker as a forecaster, so i would stay where i was and work out how bad and where the fallout would occur.
  • depends on how much money you have...if youre near and have lots of cash(gold or silver etc) ...we can go to a safe place, that i know of. otherwise im not sticking around by myself..get up on the upstairs deck, umbrella, doctor pepper, and enjoy the sunburn
  • We have a freeway-accessible highway that leads up to the mountains via a deep canyon near our house. I guess if we all piled into the car with the clothes on our backs the instant a ten-minute warning went off, we might be able to make it into the canyon, which hopefully would shield us from the brunt of the blast. If we survived, and the car was ok, we'd probably just keep going, if the road on the upside of the canyon wasn't melted (though it probably would all be on fire up there if the blast was a few thousand feet off the valley floor.) No point in going back to a glass parking lot.
  • i would get a couple miles away then get in a bomb shelter a couple yards underground
  • i would get a few miles away and then get into a bomb shelter far undergroud and then pray for everyone else
  • id use an anti-nuke EMP so it would fly into the sun because its target lock system was scrambled
  • With 10 minutes you aren't going anywhere unless you have a home bunker. With 10 minutes your best bet is get a ladder, go up on your roof and make your own body atams a part of the event. Thereby eventually you might get back at the enemy that killed you by adding to their own lethal dose of radiation.
  • I guess I would say a prayer, and stand to be vaporized. I wouldn't want to be a "survivor" with burned/peeling skin walking around with radiation poisoning, only to die a painful death.
  • There would be no way to get out of the blast area in time on foot. I'd just stay, but would try to get to Burger King before it hit.
  • even if i could get away within 10 minutes i wouldnt i rather die and not feel it then die of radation poison so i would crack up a beer and say here to you world its been fun
  • I would try to figure out if there are any buildings in my area with deep cellars and/or thick concrete walls. Then I'd chuck lots of food and water into my car and drive to that location. It might serve as a makeshift fallout shelter, and hopefully others in the community would think of it, too. I think the only way to survive would be in numbers. If I could reach my parents on my cell phone, I'd try that, too.
  • i would hide in the refridgarator
  • I would drive to the nearest school, which is 1 mile away, hoping they have a fall-out are or basement. Before leaving, I would load as much non-perishable food that I could carry into my car.
  • If I had a motorbike maybe. Otherwise no point in running. Just say some prayers and let it be.
  • go on a mad baby punching rampage
  • ... with only a low chance of surviving, I would rush to a deep point in the nearby subway ... Montreal's Laurier station is our 4th deepest and is less than two blocks away ...
  • Go outside and watch the view.:)
  • Really though, if you lived in a big city on the coast then you may stand a chance going into the sewer system. If you were somewhat prepared and had a 'dash bag' ready you go below, get some distance and perhaps exit away from the hottest zones. Then be prepared to live a nomadic lifestyle filled with mutants, zombies and giant ants!
  • well since you never said it was a missle or a bomb, and you never said it was gonna blow up, id contact the governmet and give it back, no way im getting caught with it
  • 10 minutes is not really not a long time to get away from the place, because even with the fastest automobile in the world, you would still be in the blast radius of the said weapon.
  • Bend over put my head bettween my knees and Kiss my @## good bye. ;) There is no way you could get away from a blast zone quick enough in 10 min if you were at ground zero. Now Give me 30 and put me on the outskrits where the bast would not get me but radiation would and i might be able to get to a safe distance or location. In Reality I would Kiss my wife and Tell Her I Lover Her one More Time.
  • I have an ATV that does 60+ (I am scared to go faster). I would load an much guns, ammo and body armor as I could and make a run for it. I can make great time even off road. No need to pack water or medical supplies or food. If I survive the blast my ar-15 says that I get to share the water of whomever else planned ahead and also survived.
  • I would head for the nearest cave and go as deep underground as possible with what food and water and lighting I can carry. Worth a try to stay alive.
  • Hmm 10 minutes? aside from the targeting of an expensive nuclear warhead, lets assume that classic military doctorine is in place here to answer this question. My town = roughly 600k pop; its on the largish size. Like all towns, its divided up into residential, comercial, and industrial zones (alot like simcity). Nuclear strikes are *not* designed to wipe out population centers, though they are terrifyingly good at that, so the target(s) here would be the industrial sectors, ie - the oil fields, the train depot, and the mountain passes (though I'm not to sure where on the scale infrastructure lies, I do know it would be an important target). Let us say that country pink decided to nuke hometown, USA with a 1Mt nuclear device, aiming at the industrial sector. the oil fields are somewhere between 5 - 10 miles away, with the higher concentration 0f wells being further away. Lets take the average and say that the nuke impacted 7.5 miles away. that would mean that where i live would experience a pressure; or blast; wave of 1 psi Radius: 7.4 miles 1 psi Residences are moderately damaged. Commercial buildings have sustained minimal damage. Twenty-five percent of the population between the 2 and 1 psi rings have been injured, mainly by flying glass and debris. Many others have been injured from thermal radiation -- the heat generated by the blast. The remaining seventy-five percent are unhurt. (from http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/bomb/sfeature/1mtblast.html) So, from this, I would stay home, turn off the gas, get some water into as many bottles as i could, and then hunker down in the fireplace and wait. After the Earth shattering KA-BOOM, I would leave the city as fast as humanly possible.
  • I'd do everything I cound to get my family as far away from the expected point of impact as I could.
