    This is really cool!!
    See what a large explosion would do to your area.
    Type in your city, pick the size of the explosion and the wind direction, then hit "nuke it"

    OK. Maybe one of you computer savy people can make this show up right in the post. I don't know how to do it.

    It worked for me, just put in your city or locale. Just blew myself up:gaah::surrender:

    been wondering for awhile this exact information...course I could have done the math for myself, but this has google maps! lol

    the wind direction though, is that like average wind direction or what is it based on? I guess you could rotate it in your mind

    Thats not exactly what I mean.
    I found this in a blog I read. The map worked right from the post, like when you guys put a video in a post and all we need to do is hit the play arrow and it runs without going to another site. I don't know how to do that so I just post links.

    Am I explaining this right? :dunno:

    I don't think you can do that for this one...or if you can they don't have an embed code included

    ...also I found out you can change wind direction by clicking the little compass in the bottom left corner, all I had to do was open my damn eyes :p

    Nice - if a 6-kiloton took out downtown I would be fine - I live another 60 blocks north of the farthest reach of a nuke and with normal wind-direction I might not even see the smoke :2thumb:

    So, I also tried the Calgary airport and based on everything it shows, I would probably be relatively safe. My plans for GOOD are still unchanged due to what I see from those to main-points of attack.

    Looks like I am safe from everything except a poor shot and a hit from space.

    Thanks, very entertaining.

    I'm in pretty good shape also unless Philadephia got hit during a "nor'easter". That would present a problem.
