Maximise Your Chances of Surviving a Nuclear Bomb

With more countries getting nuclear weapons, and madmen taking power and threatening to use them, we should all know what to do if a bomb falls on our city.<br />
There are three likely possible causes of death from the blast.<br />
1. The initial burst of radiation.<br />
2. The heat generated by the bomb.<br />
3. Physical damage to the area, which causes building to collapse.<br />
The best way to survive is to be far away, but if you are not, you can fill a metal bath with water and sit in it. <br />
The bath, being metal will absorb some of the radiation and reduce the dose you are exposed to. #
Water has a high heat capacity, and will absorb a lot of energy in heating up. This will reduce the increase in temperature.<br />
The bath itself will provide a very basic cage to reduce the danger from a collapsing building.
