Possibly, as the water pump will be pushing against the ice. What you need to do is warm up the engine, to keep it from freezing, as well as to thaw out the radiator. This can be done by putting a 100 watt light bulb in a low cardboard box underneath the engine, and putting a couple of blankets over the hood. If it is really windy, try to anchor the blankets down to the ground, to keep the wind from blowing under the car. Better yet, tow it to a garage where it can be warmed up. If your radiator has frozen, the engine will follow suit after a time, and this can crack the block and/or the head(s).

Would a cocaroch survive a nuclear explosion?

not at ground zeroCockroaches (and most insects) do have a higher chance of surviving nuclear radiation (e.g. from fallout) than do humans (and most mammals) because the insects have a higher LD50 than mammals do. LD50 stands for Lethal Dose 50% - the dose that will kill 50% of a group receiving that dose without medical care.Here are approximate LD50s for gamma radiation for several species:Cockroach : 5000 RadsRabbit : 800 RadsGoldfish : 750 RadsRat : 600 RadsMouse : 450 RadsMonkey : 450 RadsHumans : 250-450 Rads

How safe is 50 rads of radiation per hour?

50 rads per hour is 200 times the maximum safe continuous exposure rate. It depends of course on how long you are exposed to 50 Rads per hour. If you are exposed to 50 Rads per hour for only 15 seconds you will be just fine, where as if you were exposed for 10 hours total during a two week period, you are dead.
