I wholeheartedly and categorically oppose nuclear weapons, nuclear energy etc. This stuff makes me shiver.
You don't state what country you are from but there is several countries like France who only use nuclear energy as power.

You kow there are plenty of risks we take in life that are much more riskier than living in Las Vegas. The more information you know about a subject, the less fear you have. None of us are living in this fear here. I know many locals who were around during the testing, saw the clouds. They used to have parties planned around these.

You got some crazy neighboring countries where you are. Anytime I have been to Europe and turn on the news, I'll take Mexico and Canada over what you guys deal with.

The Conqueror (1956) - Trivia - IMDb Here's some info about a movie that was shot near the testing area.

Guess we should stay away form St George Utah
