  2. Everyone's always been ready for nuclear war. Bomb goes off, you die. How much preparation do you need? As long as you have tunes with that sweet transistor helmet and an M14 to cut your suffering short when the time comes, what more could you want?

  4. Ugh, as if taking a 20k hump in full battle rattle doesn't already suck enough, just imagine having to wear that stupid looking Darth Vader helmet while doing it...

    At least any cute girls passing by would never be able to identify you.
