Hopefully not a repost, if it is, I’m sowwy
Gotta have the loops
@satan of the north, lööps*
Ahh yes after all its not like radiation settles in low laying areas....
Good thing they have that plumbing there.
Good thing no one needs to go to the bathroom.
i missed this meme hope it comes back
I really hope that’s not an actual bomb shelter design, because that wouldn’t save you from shït. If the air above is superheated (like from an explosion), you’ll die in agony as your lungs burn within your chest, and if you’re unlucky enough to survive an incident long enough to hear that Geiger counter go off, that’s the music you’re going to listen to as your organs slowly melt from the inside out.
You’d be better off standing out in the open holding up your thumb like the Vault Boy.
@I Are Lebo, they have an air filter it's fine
@PacificaPelican, if you think an air filter like that is going to do anything to prevent you from inhaling superheated or radioactive air, then I don’t know what to tell you. The piping on the left would be certain death for all the occupants unless the area directly above the bomb shelter was relatively safe.
@I Are Lebo, yea it was a joke, as was this graphic.
@I Are Lebo, How so?
Yes this design is severely lacking as it is just a magazine general idea drawing from the 50's or so but this would Definitely help.
A) what are the 2 biggest aides for reducing radiation exposure to yourself?
1)Distance (a few feet from a weak source like fall-out does amazing things)
2)Putting something between the radiation and you to absorb and block all forms of radiation. Like dirt, clay, concrete and steel. The denser the better. That's why nuclear facilities have lots of thick walls. Enough lead for a facility gets expensive. Enough soil to block anything usefully makes the walls extremely thick. Concrete is a good compromise of cost and density so it is commonly used. No matter what, all you need is matter between you and the source. Alpha particles are commonly stopped by paper suits. Gamma and fast neutrons just need material and nuclei to run into. No way around it there.
B)Dealing with the air. HEPA filters were actually designed to capture...
@mas2de, the radioactive particulate. Common household HEPA filters today were state secrets in WWII. But the principles are the same and strictly filtering the smallest particles reasonable is adequate.
For personal use a simple dust mask or reapirator is worn. Not that you'd want to have to use that for more than a few minute trek outside depending on the radiation levels, but that gives you an idea of what simple (less than HEPA) filtration does for you. You don't need ULPA filters or anything super fancy. Glass fiber then HEPA filters are what the IAEA requires for air purification. Included in their reports is that fine dust filters are also effective at removing the particulate. As for your concern of superheated air, again distance and something to absorb the radiation is your friend. Something like a couple feet of activated carbon and dust filter works. On top if that, if your in an area with such high radiation levels as for there to be superheated air, you were within the...
@mas2de, ...blast radius. Unless you have 10 air changes per hr and a large volume bunker with a high velocity filter, you don't need to worry about the warm air. If there's superheated air above you, you were in that bunker before any bomb detonated and your main concern then is probably food and water to last you long enough before you can sprint out of your bunker to relative safety. It'll be a Very long time as you'll need to get a long ways and won't have much time to do it. You'll grow old waiting for it to be low enough waiting to get out. You'll die of old age if you're waiting for it to be "safe".
As for the radiometer, it's probably checking outside conditions (based on the wire going up by the periscope) and not just for inside conditions. Both are highly useful.
The people in this bunker will probably catch cabin fever and murder each other before they get out and their cat will eat them.
@mas2de, but where do they shît?
@RollingInD1ck, *Shrek "That's a very good question."
Damn, that is one fat cat.
Do you have any loops brother I am quite famished. You may have no loops
