Thanks for reminding me, Jeff. I was going to clean my house today, but I think I'll just play video games instead!

Does the end come three hours later on the west coast?

Duck and cover.

Phillip, as soon as I read your post I heard "DROP!" I used to hate when teachers did that:

"Class, 2 plus 2 equals DROP!"

I used to wonder how getting under the desk would keep radiation from harming us!

Even as a child I thought it was funny that hiding under a desk was suppose to keep me safe from a nuke. When I asked my teacher about it she told me not to be difficult which I later found out meant "Stop asking questions I don't want to answer." But then my Dad was a scientist and taught me to ask questions when I did not understand.

I don't think so. I think the whole world explodes once the last time zone in the world clicks over to 12/21/12.

My dad was a bus driver. All he ever told me was that if we get nuked he's going to be working a little late and don't wait up.

Quack.

Anyone who has been to a blowout in a clinching sports playoff game knows that song.

Once a fighter jet from a nearby Air Force base broke the sound barrier over our school. The entire class of fourth graders got under their desks in unison without a sound.

I still remember the open-mouthed look on my teacher's face when I peeked out ffom under the desk.

I was a kid in the 70s. They were so laid back, their idea of "preparation" was to sit us in front of a projector and show us movies about the bombs. There wasn't even "duck and cover." Maybe by then they figured no one was buying the whole desk idea.

Or a blowout against a team you really, really hate...........

I think you should sleep with the Kindles so whatever world you wake up in you will not be without Kindles.

Are you sure you're talkin' 'bout YOUR juh-juh-generation? I thought you were a child of the '70s...2012 minus 46...carry the one...yep! You were born about the time I hit seventh grade, and we were soooo over backyard bomb shelters by then

You remember "The Day After"? That movie scared the chit out of me, as I'm sure it was designed to do.

You mean some people don't sleep with theirs?

Just Peachy says:
Yep,I don't remember being taught duck and cover.
Then I met people who lived near the air force base. Their theory was to hope one of the nukes was aimed at that base. Then we would be vaporized so quickly we would never know what hit us.

And chargers. I'll make sure I have the chargers with me. A world without Kindles will be a desolate, miserable place.

Sure hope the next world has ATT coverage and wi-fi. And is in a Prime delivery area.

Ha, see my above post-- that was the discussion at community college after that movie aired. Just stay near the air force base. POOF! You will not suffer.

Absolutely. It was terrifying. I've resisted watching it again because I am sure if I did, it would just be cheezy.

I'm in my early 40s, and we had duck-and-cover drills when I was in elementary school. Of course, this was Central Florida...the adults were sure the Cubans were going to nuke the orange groves.

Well you did go for the Prime Armageddon option didn't you?
