These sort of things never fail to shock me, no matter how much I try to mentally prepare for anything before reading it. The article was so childlike and naive you have to wonder - what goes on in this kind of person's head normally? Spectator sports, televitz, beer, celebrities ... what on Earth do they spend their time thinking about, when obviously they almost never think about the real world?
In Britain the locals tell themselves they'll go into the woods and hunt pheasants after a nuclear war. That's what they'll do.
In Amerikwa, they have fantastic escapist dreams of how they'll bug out in their camper vans and find a quiet stream somewhere in the mountains where they will fish. That's what they'll do.
Vault-Co suggests this is not actually what most people will be doing after a nuclear war. I suspect things will be a bit different. The only unflinching account I have ever read of the post-nuclear environment was Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD. Everything else I have ever seen in fiction was just sad delusional bullsh*t bordering on infantile.
