    Default This is how the war will begin

    Not with a bang but with an "oops".

    Not the first time its happened and previous "oops" moments could have been much, much worse. There could have been a full scale nuclear conflict in 1983 based on a machine malfunction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_S...alarm_incident

    I feel very strongly for those poor people in Hawaii nonetheless.
    Last night as I lay in bed, looking up at the stars, I thought, “Where the hell is my ceiling?"

    I would love to know how that one happened.

    The official story is that someone pressed the wrong button by mistake, probably Peter Strzok.

    I feel like there should be an 'Are you sure?' dialogue box.
