About this Blog

The Loose Nukes is an attempt (by people who should probably be under 24 hour supervised psychiatric care) to bring attention to somewhat serious issues like nuclear weapons, militarism and other seemingly random, unrelated issues through vain attempts at social satire and other futile gestures of total contempt for a fading empire that continues to employ nuclear weapons, the ultimate instruments of an erectile dysfunctional national security state, as instruments of foreign policy. OK, you probably get the idea by now. We are obsessed by run-on sentences, peace and justice, having fun, and don't know when to quit. At any rate, we don't think nuclear weapons are a very good idea, and are most definitely unhealthy for living things. We also think the folks running this Empire should just get over it.

And now the NOT SO FINE PRINT: Read further at your own risk... and remember, DON'T PANIC; this is all SATIRE at its worst (or best, depending on one's mental state)! And some of the stuff in here is even true!!!

Portable baby bomb shelters for the coming apocalypse

This just in from Russia Today!  It's the biggest (or smallest) thing since personal bomb shelters!!!  (And it's for real!!!)

Nuclear-proof cradles to save VIP babies from apocalypse

Russia Today, May 24th

More than 100 capsule cradles aimed at protecting officials' babies from a nuclear blast and chemical or biological attack have been ordered by Russia’s security service.

The $60,000 portable cradles are specially designed for babies from birth to 1.5 years old. Made of special diffusion material, the capsules block poisonous reagents, biological aerosols and radioactive dust.

The capsules will stay hermetic in temperatures ranging from -30C to 40C with at least 18 per cent oxygen content in the air, Izvestia reported.

The babies inside the capsules could survive for up to six hours. The capsules could also be used for cats, dogs, and birds.

The capsule cradles were invented back in 1960 by Soviet military engineers. Now they are produced at a steel factory in Moscow region.

The unusual order comes soon after Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s speech at the International Legal Forum in St. Petersburg. The former president pointed out that rapid military operations may result in radical groups overtaking power, regional wars, and even deployment of nuclear arms.


Editor's Comments:  So what's a baby (or the baby's nuclear nanny) gonna do after SIX hours?!?!?!  Let's go find some radioactive baby formula on the shelves of our local incinerated supermarket.  This is definitely one for the ONE PERCENT!  Anyone interested in setting up a franchise here in the U.S.???
