It sounds like a good idea.

Jokes aside, it shouldn't be very hard. You're dealing with something different than the average 13-year-olds on this forum (no offense towards the 13-year-olds here, since they're clearly acting more mature).

Respect your fellow members, their choices and their views - this doesn't mean that you must necessarily agree with them.
That should get you some way.

Additionally, if you think that what you're going to say sounds stupid/unnecessary, it most likely does - so don't post it. Either that, or you can note in the top or bottom of your post that "you think this might be stupid/unnecessary, but want to post it anyway because yaddayadda".

It's a place that has something to do with Lennin. I think he was friends with Stallin, or something. ;) :P

I don't think it ever actually existed, just another piece of communist propaganda meant to confuse the west.

Indeed, Petrograd and Leningrad are hidden forever, St Petersburg has always been there.

Anyone else read Herman Kahn's On Thermonuclear War? He was employed by Rand Corp. (A military think tank) during the Cold War as a nuclear was strategist. It is a really long and detailed book that proves nuclear war doesn't lead to the end of the world. It proves that it is survivable, everyone could recover, and (in my favorite chapter) the survivors would not envy the dead. Even if the USSR had nuked the US, or vis versa, it wouldn't have been that bad.

I read that the fallout would create huge dust clouds which would block out the sun, ruin crops, and cause world wide starvation. This would depend on the wind, type of bomb, size of bomb.

I guess some could survive, but it would be hard, and be basic foraging and hunting in the few areas where the radiation isnt so strong.

Surely whole continents would be uninhabitable for thousands of years.

A nice nuclear winter would be the definitive answer to global warming.
