CaptSacto: BrieBelle00: I'm a rebel - bypassed parents and went straight to mygrandparents... had to have back surgery last year at the tender age of 29 *le sigh* TLIF on the L4/L5. Good times. (related to an MVA when on active duty in 2003) "Parents" would be an upgrade lolWell, crap. That just sucks.Here's hoping your mind remains young and surgically unaltered.
Gyrfalcon: armor helix: My only hope is that the the US does not end up getting involved in this nonsense.Pft. It's like 60 years too late for that.

BrieBelle00: shortymac: BrieBelle00: doglover: CaptSacto: doglover: CaptSacto: doglover: CaptSacto: Let me know when the Patriots launch.i will.Appreciate it. Are you in the neighborhood?yepStay safe, dude.I'm still of the opinion that this is just another Un wienie wave. They've done this sh*t before, too.Things could get interesting if the threat appears great enough to launch the Patriots.There's no general panic here. Business as usual. But it's making me edgy. I don't want to test my "how to survive a nuke" knowledge from those old survival manuals.I believe the "Duck and Cover" method works equally as well for nuclear fallout as it does for flowing rivers of lava.[24.media.tumblr.com image 500x353]What episode is that I must watch it.I don't remember the episode number, but it was Season 1, and I think it was actually titled "Duck and Cover"

Smirky the Wonder Chimp: Charlie Freak: Oh well, fark sleep I guess. Interestingly, I just had a twinge of the anxiety I had as a child growing up in the Cold War. Just a little, but seriously, that shiat sucked. As I listen to my kids breathe right now (they crawl into our room damn near every night), I am thankful they never had to go through that mindfark. No kid should. End this old-school pseudo-commie bullshiat blow-up-the-world propaganda so we can get back to the slow morphine drip our banks feed us.Every last person I grew up with in the 1980s was convinced that, one way or another, we were going to live to see the world come to an end, with the only question remaining being how much it was going to hurt and how long we would suffer before we finally died. I got it from the teachers at school, I got it from my grandparents, I got it from my parents, my aunts and uncles, my friends. We watched The Day After, When the Wind Blows and Threads in school, because for some unholy reason, the administrators thought it would be a good idea. My history teacher was a Rapture-believing holy roller--I was ten when I came home from school one day in a massive thunderstorm after we'd gotten a rant from her about Reagan being the Antichrist and how the rapture was imminent, found my house deserted and the power and phones off, and I actually freaked because I suddenly thought that the Rapture had come and I was one of the ones left. I spent the next four hours in a dark corner crying for me and for my dogs (I'd been told that all animals would die over the next seven years) before someone finally showed up to get me--my grandfather had been taken to the hospital and in the asses-and-elbows confusion that followed no one had thought to write a note or come to check.It wasn't until I actually became an adult that the fear went away, because I was actually just too farking tired of being afraid anymore. Mostly. When stories like this float up, that little ghost of a worm that those people le ...

vygramul: Lollipop165: Don't NK and Japan have (compared to the US) a relatively placid relationship? I know there are Japanese nationals in NK. Why would they try to hit them?Given the history of comfort women and NK kidnapping Japanese nationals, a problem only resolved, to some degree, in 2002, I'd say that not enough time has passed to make that relationship placid.
redsquid: This does raise an interesting point. The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty has prevented us from testing a nuke in over twenty years and some in the establishment are worried about the reliability of our arsenal. For instance the implosion charges in some warheads have shown signs of micro fractures and it is unsure how they will perform. Maybe we can kill two birds with one stone?
Macinfarker: As for their goals, you give them way more credit than they deserve. Other than the usual goals, or maybe to measure response, there's no goal worth shiatting over.
KarmicDisaster: The missile goes up, the missile goes back down. You can't explain that."A missile had been briefly raised to an upright firing position, stoking concerns that a launch is imminent, a U.S. official told CNN Thursday.Later, another U.S. official said it's been tucked back into its launcher." -CNN

KierzanDax: BrieBelle00: had to have back surgery last year at the tender age of 29 *le sigh* TLIF on the L4/L5. Good times. (related to an MVA when on active duty in 2003)Ah, I feel your pain. Had a laminectomy on L3, L4 and L5 due to cauda equina syndrome (caused by severe spinal stenosis.) Somehow the surgeon was able to avoid having to do the fusion which normally followed the laminectomy.

It's like 60 years too late for that.I meant militarily involved, obviously.Again, about 60 years too late for that.Oh I'm sorry. Did I miss the newspaper this morning and miss the article where we invaded North Korea? Oh that didn't happen ? Your just playing semantic games? Oh ok. Got it.
Bendal: Uchiha_Cycliste: With the NK miss-all in launch position, does anyone know what the time frame is for a launch? I mean to ask, what is likely the longest we would have to wait before we could assume it's a bluff and they won't do it.Not all that long; their missiles are liquid fueled and the fuel is corrosive, which is why they only fuel them before launch. I don't knowhow long the fuel can stay in the missile before it damages something important, but it can't be all that long.
KrispyKritter: The5thElement: As a retiree of a three letter agency within the department of defense, it will be very interesting to see what happens if any of the missiles get intercepted.We're all very impressed, Doug.
