    They're always there. Both the US and Russia have subs in stand-by just outside the 12-mile limit, all the time.

    It's Round x of Global Thermonuclear War. As long as each side plays by the rules, nothing disastrous should happen.

    Well, hitherto we didn't have anybody crazy, stupid, irresponsible and paranoid enough to actually consider using them.

    Imagine Trump is informed of a "possible" launch from the ocean with less than 4 minutes to react. Imagine further he is personally in a safe place.

    we've had some near disasters.

    All it would take is a glitch in an early warning system.

    That guy probably ranks up there with Edward Jenner or Louis Pasteur for the most lives saved by a single human

    The most recent podcast on Dan Carlin's hardcore history is all about the people that have controlled the nuclear football for USA and Russia since they each had the capability. Fascinating stuff but it is 6 hour podcast. I've always love me his depth so the length has never bothered me:

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure he's playing. As a player he was actually quite good at exposing the racism of people who would just assume that a big black basketball guy must be a dope. I've always had the impression that Shaq has a much better developed sense of humor than the jock sniffers who stalk him.

    Then again, he might be a f-ckwit.

    Yeah, Shaq has been known to do that. I always remember the owner of West Coast Customs saying something like "It seems like Shaq isn't impressed and doesn't care but I know he's just doing that to * with me. He wants to keep me on my toes so I don't get complacent."
