  1. Here we had much simpler ones, like:
    1) If you see a nuclear flash, have a good look at it, because you won’t see another ever again.
    2) If you are a soldier, when there is a nuclear flash, salute, or else your helmet will flow into your eyes.
    3) If you are a civilian, the no.1. thing you should do in case of a nuclear blast is to cover yourself with a white blanket and start crawling towards the graveyard.

  2. The last, most important page is missing. The one where it tells you to put your head between your legs and kiss your ass good bye.

  3. What a cheerful little tome!
    Anyad’s comment made me laugh out loud, brought me back to my cold war childhood, where they didn’t even teach us drills (we lived close to a major power production area) because, “we’ll be the first target and you’ll never know what hit you anyway”.
    Mad props to my teachers for not bothering to scare us with bullshit pointless drills.
    Agreed with Nikoliy that this book was WAY more instructive than their Western counterparts…a goddamned turtle telling you to “Duck and Cover”.
    (No offense to turtles.)
