These Nuclear Bomb Test Vids Are Scary As Shit

James Dawson in  now

I'm not going to lie, I love thinking about the prospect of World War III and the prospect of a coming nuclear holocaust.

So the fact dozens of newly declassified films of U.S. nuclear bomb tests have become available to watch online has been giving me a lotta lotta soon-to-experience-irradiated-death laughs over the past few days.

The videos show over 200 atmospheric nuclear tests the U.S. conducted between 1945 and 1992.

As the US military shot multiple angles of these tests, there are approximately 10,000 films that exist.

Greg Spriggs, of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California has been heading up a team that locates, scans and analyses all the films and then uploads them online.

Meaning you can watch videos like this one...

Pretty neat, huh?

If this has got you worried, fear not as someone over at ThisIsInsider.com they've gathered together data on the 14 safest places in the world in the event of a nuclear war. It's not certain that these places would be spared if nuclear war erupted, but according to experts these are the safest cities and locations based on geography and other factors.

The closest to us Brits is the Isle of Lewis, the only downside is it would mean living in Scotland, so really it's up to you to decide whether it's worth moving there, or if you'd rather accept the inevitability of irradiated death. At least there'll be a huge piss up.
