DEFCON scares me and science says it will scare you too

    I'd say Missile Command is even scarier, in Defcon at least you can strategize and retaliate. In MC you can only defend and delay the inevitable. Add to that that it was released during the cold war and the interview with it's creator where he said that sometimes he woke up in a cold sweat to nightmares of white streaks filling the sky.

                Thought this was about hacking at first than thought it was a movie than thought it was a game about hacking

                        I'm 13 but and this is deep

                        But really defcon is amazingly hounest game that to me personaly trully rings the power of ignorence and power of the few over the world it makes you feel disconnect yet know this might be happen under your own feet at any moment

                                Civilians pressing the button themselves

                                Or more rather they cause it to happen like in 99 luftballoons I know it’s a song but it’s about civilians causing the world to end in a nuclear holocaust

                                  This should be an scp, just like the role playing game scp except your a dictator going to war with everyone while your thinking this is a game when actually it’s another world where everyone in that world dies and resets then dies and resets again while either keeping or losing their memory.

                                              Fallout scared me, but visiting Chernobyl filled me with dread. Seeing and hearing of the devastation it caused wishes we never experience anything like it or worse.

                                                  Just to think about it the last thing we’d all see is people running in fear and we’d just have to accept the fact the flash of light is something we’d have to make peace with those last couple seconds your heart would feel like it’s sunken but you feel really calm and you finally are dead

                                                                        Who would nuke South America, Africa, thousands of habited islands, Siberia, Canada and practically all of the places without nukes that are remote enough? There will be entire countries surviving whole. No end of the world or civilization can come from a total nuclear war.
                                                                        Then there's nuclear consequences. Even if you blew up all of the nukes in the world, it wouldn't cause nuclear winter. While it's not a myth, ten thousand nukes is not enough to make it happen, not even with all the nukes in existance.
                                                                        Radiation would also be just an inconvenience, cancer goes up, infantile immortality increases, but at most it's miserable but would not cause massive die off of the population of the world.

                                                                        Speaking of civilization, I'd say within 5 years after nuclear war the nuked nations would have their infrastructure back up. By year 10 the life there would be fairly normal. By year 20 it would be almost as if the war never happened though people who lived through it would be still affected psychologically but for the new generation of young adults it would be something they never lived through

                                                                        What I'm saying is, I'm not scared because in the large scale of things, it would just be road bump in human history.

                                                                        • C O
