    One of the warheads is still in some field in Faro, NC...so...sleep tight.

    One small low voltage switch prevented complete annihilation of the eastern US...

    I'm probably the youngest person on this board to get this image. I loved that show growing up.

    Here's a good and scary article about this book:
    http://alibi.com/art/45329/We-Are-All-Going-to-Die-In-a-Fiery-Nuclear-Acciden.html

    Near Albuquerque there are over 2,000 nukes stored on Kirtland AFB.

    I drive by the entirety of our submarine nuclear arsenal (well except those cruising around Russia and China) on my way to and from work every day.

    There's literally tons of Nerve toxin bombs encased in concrete blocks aptly called "coffins" sunk off the coast of Cape Kennedy Florida as well, surely that will never become a problem; right?



    19:45 for the Florida reference, the entire doc is great however.
