Duck and cover was pretty much just to give people some notion that their actions could meaningfully affect their chances of survival, when the truth was it depended almost entirely on where you were standing and what was between you and the blast. Really more the former than the latter, as everything within a few kilometers of the initial blast is within the plasma ball formed when the epic amounts of light and radiation strip the gasses in the air into bare ions.

That said, if you could survive the initial blast, it turns out you actually could survive. There is an account from a catholic priest who survived the bombing in Hiroshima, and he described the events.

Security so bad it hertz. Remember kids, when some drive-by hacker takes control of your toys, it's going to be a real PITA.

That's all you need to protect you from the giant fireball shock wave and radiation fallout.

Or a nice sturdy school desk as I was taught in grade school. I distinctly remember being surprised that my desk could offer such amazing protection.

Breaking news:
I just found this tiny little baby corn snake on my back patio. Lighter for scale.

I'd say "kill it with fire" but it looks like you have that taken care of.

Carry on.

Corn snakes are harmless to humans and eat varmints.

Let it be.

I leave the snakes and spiders alone. They both eat crickets and I hate crickets. :goth:

I have one of those sets. Cheap POS that now hulks in a room of my house because it's too big to move. Hope he ventilated.

This is why you use a stud finder and make sure every bolt (not screw) hits one.

When I put my wall mount up, I made sure I could nearly do pull-ups with it before putting the TV up.

Pretty sure I see a stud there.

Sure, untouched and near the CENTER of the hole in the wall.

You can also see that the screws were only in the corners of that mounting bracket.

He should have moved the bracket over so it had a stud on each end, or in a situation (like mine) where that is not possible, do what I did and use a special center-stud compatible bracket.

I WONDER IF THAT WAS MOUNTED BY THE HOMEOWNER, OR THE gEEK sQUAD?

(Ok, caps lock fail ... )

Yeah, whoever installed that put the stud right in the center of the mount and failed to attach to it. It's completely untouched.

You *can* get drywall to support that kind of weight, but it has to be hanging with the force almost entirely downward. Putting the center of mass even a few inches away will cause your load to rip right out. This is why you can use 100 and 200 pound hooks for paintings, but not a 50-100 pound TV mount.

Pro-tip - if you are mounting a load on a wall that has to extend away even a few inches, don't count on the drywall. Count on the studs.
