Fallout: New York City Edition
Yes, this is a real PSA that dropped this week.
Some peeps were like, "Don't you know we're at war with Russia??"
No, no we're not. Ukraine is at war with Russia. Our politicians are just using Ukraine to launder billions of dollars for weapons that keep making their way to the black market.
The Kremlin has pointed out that it could obliterate Western cities, yes. But if you think we're closer to nuclear war than the Cold War, you need to do some reading.
So why is NYC running this ad?
From the NY Post:
NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol said in a statement, "As the threat landscape continues to evolve, it is important that New Yorkers know we are preparing for any imminent threats and are providing them with the resources they need to stay safe and informed."
That's totally reassuring!!
Amazingly-bad-at-his-job Mayor Eric Adams defended the ad:
"I'm a big believer in better safe than sorry," Adams said. "I take my hat off to (the Office of Emergency Management). OEM took a very proactive step and said, ‘Let's be prepared.'"
Dude, the advice isn't even good! If NYC gets hit and you're there, you should probably just head outside with some sunglasses and enjoy the brief-but-dazzling view. You don't "got this"!
Here's an actual nuclear expert to explain:
Anyway, I'll be over here prepping my power armor and watching Vault Boy training videos!
