The fact that the tree nuclear distasters in Japan, has all happened along a line, is something that I haven’t seen anyone even mention. It’s a curious fact, indead. The coincidence is stunning, in all its sadness and horror.

Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but still a creepy thing to consider.

When I was researching the ww2 nuclear bombings of Japan, I came upon a phrase, “early warning”, that in this context reminded me of a Rush song. I have never seen the video, so I decided to check it out. The context of the video turned out to be pretty interesting indeed.

How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb

Rush – Distant Early Warning

There are references in the vid to the Kubrick movie “Doctor Strangelove”, and also the 1945 Japan nuclear holocaust.

In the vid, there’s a boy riding on a nuclear missile, just like the ending of Doctor Strangelove.

As I had just learned, “Little Boywas the codename for the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Strange how so many things come together.
