Don't worry -- I've planned ahead! We're three miles from a primary target.


In these unnervingly warm, still, dry winter & spring days at the end of the anthropocene era, I find it comforting to reread all my greatest nuclear-apocalypse hits -- I just finished Alas, Babylon, and despite the casual sexism, thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a weird kind of optimism, perhaps particular to Generation X: Hey, at least there's still a chance it could all end in a millisecond of brilliant light! Yaaaaaay!

"...the end of the anthropocene era..." Nice one. Really hope that comment isn't too prescient, but I have my doubts.

Ugh, I know -- christ I hope I'm wrong. I have never hoped so much for something in my life.
