@semibogan @theharryshearer That’s a great segment, though I’m fond of all the News of X segments.

@SMinney @onthemedia Not that @sfmnemonic would object to comparisons to Nazis when they are actually Nazis.

via TweetDeck in reply to SMinney

@munin Indeed. My mother’s side of the family is all Barossadeutsch, who were of Prussian descent. Migrated in 1830s-1840s.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@_DaveKnowles Yeah, one of the points in this @onthemedia episode is that formerly lunatic-fringe views are now debated openly. Scary.

via TweetDeck in reply to _DaveKnowles

@munin It’s an oak leaf. You may have heard of a certain central European nation where that featured on uniforms and stuff.

@munin Also, the logo of their associated Radix Journal is no cause for concern whatsoever. pic.twitter.com/nyt0fPaFIU

@munin Well indeed. It’s worth watching the full video, and listening to the @onthemedia item.

Or as @Bobosphere put it, “‘Until recently such rhetoric was the provence of people previously known as ‘the lunatic fringe’.” Indeed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mhackling

@semibogan NUKEMAP’s model does’t include terrain effects. You could make use of the ranges to localise both blast and fallout.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@semibogan I reckon you could do an air burst at about 500m altitude, say, just inland from Palm Beach, and keep Sydney itself safe.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

Those casualty figures are just for the initial blast, not those for the fallout along the coast. They’re just bonus points.

I say, a 5MT ground burst during a SSE wind gives the Central Coast a good dousing. nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap/?&kt=5… pic.twitter.com/nfkqO37Jbj
