• Quote: "If you can just suspend disbelief enough to accept the idea that after nuclear war people in Kansas will still be using makeup, smiling at each other, and having melodramatic love affairs amid the end of the world you'll love this piece of trite garbage", end of quote.

    In fact I can believe it. As someone who has lived a childhood in a war-torn country, I can say that people do all this during wars. For example, London did not stop living during the bombing in World War II... Despite the war, people continue their lives, being born, dying, falling in love, getting married.

    Humans do not turn into mourned zombies during wars, but go on with their lives. This is exactly what keeps them alive ...
