The other, was the psyche scarring TV movie, The Day After, which of course, confirmed all my fears.
I was so scared of nuclear war I wrote Prime Minister Trudeau and asked him to do whatever he could to stop the war, and to let me do anything I could to help too. I sealed it with wax from a candle because I didn't want anyone opening it except him. I did get a nice form letter back, and there was no war on his watch, so I guess it worked.
Today I discovered this WikiHow article on how to survive a nuclear war, and it was a nice refresher. I already knew pretty much all of this from my "Got to be ready when it all goes down" mindset in the 80s, but it was good to catch up.
As I read, I was worried that it was going to kick off yet another round of nuclear war paranoia, but then Google came to the rescue with their targeted ads, including:
