From insurance provider Asurion’s contract.

L. Any Loss or damage caused by or through or in consequence, directly or indirectly, of Nuclear Hazard, meaning any weapon employing atomic fission or fusion; or nuclear reaction or radiation or radioactive contamination from any other cause; but we will pay for direct physical Loss caused by resulting fire, if the fire would be covered under this Certificate.

So, after WWIII be sure to claim your phone was lost in the resulting global firestorm, and not from the explosions themselves.

And yes I’m well aware that this is mainly to account for phone loss due to terrorist activity and not nuclear warfare, but it’s still kind of funny.

after the war that started back on the
12th of last month

He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

This is clearly a ploy aimed at depriving Yisrael Hawkins and his friends of cell-phone coverage after the fallout from the nuclear war that started in the Euphrates river valley last month finally drifts across to Texas.

So, if my cell phone’s knocked out by the EMP from the initial high-altitude thermonuclear detonation, then I had better hang around for the firestorm after the surface blast in the nearby city next door, if I want to file my $75.00 insurance claim? Sounds like a deal.
