      A little simulation from Princeton about how things might go if a conventional NATO/Russia conflict went nuclear.

     It looks like an early video game at first glance -- at least, until the casualty counts pop up.

As Admiral Painter said in The hunt for Red October: "This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it."

The only hope is that saner heads prevail and war, if it does come, stays conventional.

started to watch out of curiosity, had to nope out - realized I don't need that in my head because I literally have no way to control anything in the situation. Not even sure what I could do to plan; I have canned goods and a water purifier on hand but honestly? If I lost a lot of people I loved, if comforts and joys of life seemed to be gone forever? I'm not sure I could keep going. The pandemic as it is had me asking, some dark and lonesome nights, "Do I really want to keep going through this, if this is forever now?"

I lived through the 70s and 80s, I hate that we're dealing with numerous bad things recalling numerous decades of the 20th century.
