Gruesome use of Google Maps

I don’t know why I’m sharing this link, other than the fact that I find it too hard to keep such a grisly utility all to myself. Feast your eyes upon HYDESim: The High-Yield Detonation Effects Simulator.

I’ve saved you the trouble by showing the effects on Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

    You know, I saw that this morning and played around with it (moving the center to CNN Center and seeing if my house gets the 15psi or whatever).

    But, honestly, what’s the point? If a big nuclear boom goes off in Atlanta, we’re all screwed. Period.

    Yeah, it looks all scary to see those big red circles around a point on a map, but apart from cool graphics, what’s the big deal?

    Nuclear bombs are bad, mkay? Is that really surprising to anybody?

    Surprising… my side of Midtown squeaked by.
