Tokyo to TXT warning of incoming Norks nukes

toxicdragon

Re: In this particular case, why bother?

Always wondered about the point of a fallout shelter besides peace of mind, I was born in the late 80s so I missed the nuclear crises so maybe its just because of that I don't get it. And even if it would help who still has a fully stocked shelter today? I have seen some odd sets of stairs and odd coloured concrete slabs with those slots for removal in places around my universities campus which I have never seen people use, admittedly that's not proof of shelters but hidden in plain sight and all that. Surely they still wont be actively stocked?

Re: Class 1 A.I

Nice system, would recommend one small change though, I think your steps 11 and 12 are the wrong way round, would think that classifying it as smarter on earth then the universe would make more sense under this system.

Mistakes?

This has probably been said already, but the phrase that sticks out most is "There were no mistakes like that at all."

To me this implies that any privacy breech was done intentionally. Or is my parsing broke today?

Re: Oh yes.

Personally I think this is a good idea. I admit I probably wont take an iPhone willingly into a survival situation, I can think of better tools. But in an absolute emergency it seems kind of useful.
