Hey, everybody! Have you ever wondered what Portland might look like if someone dropped or detonated a nuclear bomb somewhere on Sixth
Street between Burnside and Couch?
Or have you lost sleep worrying whether your house/apartment/condo/sex dungeon would survive the apocalyptic blast of heat and pressure screaming toward it from a humble one-kiloton nuclear device?
Depending on how skittish you are, you might not want to click here, then. It's called Ground Zero II, and it lets you check out how any city in the world would fare against atom bombs both big and small. (Here's one hint about Portland: Don't like radioactive fallout? Move to the East Side.)
And remember, even if you win—as in, your house would be OK—you still actually lose!
