Atomic Testing Museum

All kinds of chaotic crap going on.  I am overloaded.  I need a vacation.  Well, luckily I get one.  Ming and I have a Goddess Temple retreat coming up on Monday.

I bought some fake salami at Whole Foods today and it’s pretty good.  I just ate a fake salami sandwich.

Today we went to the Atomic Testing Museum.  I had never been there before.  I thought it would be depressing–harrowing, even.  Instead, it was chillingly non-depressing.  So much for a world class museum showing a balanced perspective.  It was propaganda-like.

We exited through the gift shop and Ming bought a book about the test site.  Nothing tempted me but a booklet (zine-like) about radiation preparedness from the 1950s.  But do I really need another weird ephemera?  Nope.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.

I love you !

I, or rather Nevada Desert Experience, bought the book The Nevada Test Site; A Guide to America's Nuclear Proving Ground for the NDE Library.

I also found the weird ephemera booklet here: ia800503.us.archive.org/5/items/survivalunderato00bost/survivalunderato00bost.pdf which is Survival Under Atomic Attack.

While looking for the weird ephemera text online to share here on your blog post, I found www3.nd.edu/~nsl/Lectures/phys205/pdf/Nuclear_Warfare_9.pdf Radiation Effects of a Nuclear Bomb which seemed interesting.

I love you !
