Response to babylonsister (Original post)

8. The world we were living in when I was in elementary school was equally weird. The U.S. and the

U.S.S.R were competing to assemble the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons. They were testing them in the atmosphere, spreading radiation over the whole Earth. We came close to total annihilation more than once. The nuclear winter that would have resulted would have killed a large percentage of life on Earth. We did pull back from the brink with that one. I hope we manage to do it this time too.
