The Fallout of Childhood Memories



This is how I grew up, with "fallout drills", until I got into a school system with small out-buildings. I think they realized by then ducking under a desk in a prefabricated class room was fairly moot. I actually thought a newspaper covering my head would keep me from being burned.

There is some really creepy pedo shit in there as well. And a lot of "obey the older people" advice, as if they would not be insanely running in circles during such ordeals.

We were typing earlier in the month about how we perceived each other (East and West) as 'good guys vs bad guys'. Too many of you are too young (shakes fist!) to remember growing up in the early 60's, but some may be able to contribute their home countries propaganda-inspired Bert the Turtle.
