What happens when security devices are insecure? Choose the nuclear option

Re: Too depressing?

And there are certainly other ways the plot could go, but most of them are similarly depressing, just in different ways. Nuclear explosions are not fun, so your options are:

1. Be vaporized at the center of an explosion

2. Die in the destruction that is far enough away from the center that you weren't vaporized

3. Die in the fires spreading from the destruction outward because a lot of stuff burns

4. Die from fallout which can be blown by winds nearly anywhere

5. Miraculously find a shelter strong enough to withstand the fallout without poisoning you, and die inside for lack of provisions, extreme heat, etc.

6. Miraculously find a shelter strong enough to withstand the fallout without poisoning you, but open it too soon and die of fallout anyway

7. Miraculously find a shelter strong enough to withstand the fallout without poisoning you, and have a load of fun finding a safe place to go when you eventually come out

Let's just agree not to drop any nuclear weapons. Everyone on board with that?
