    So, I was watching this and it struck me that so much of this could be applied to the Dolphins organization. Especially the "Terry and Gonad" sequence.

    I love reading comments from unsullied show watchers like this.

    As sad and heart-shattering as that particular moment is going to be, that viewer is in for a very unpleasant surprise.
    And now his fires have gone out.

    Also, Stephen Ross would be Gonad in this situation. How Carl Peterson hasn't sat him down yet and told him that his plans are idiotic is beyond me.

    Speaking of Kubrick, there's this:

    This month marks the fiftieth anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s black comedy about nuclear weapons, “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.” Released on January 29, 1964, the film caused a good deal of controversy. Its plot suggested that a mentally deranged American general could order a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union, without consulting the President. One reviewer described the film as “dangerous … an evil thing about an evil thing.” Another compared it to Soviet propaganda.

    Although “Strangelove” was clearly a farce, with the comedian Peter Sellers playing three roles, it was criticized for being implausible. An expert at the Institute for Strategic Studies called the events in the film “impossible on a dozen counts.” A former Deputy Secretary of Defense dismissed the idea that someone could authorize the use of a nuclear weapon without the President’s approval: “Nothing, in fact, could be further from the truth.” When “Fail-Safe”—a Hollywood thriller with a similar plot, directed by Sidney Lumet—opened, later that year, it was criticized in much the same way. “The incidents in ‘Fail-Safe’ are deliberate lies!” General Curtis LeMay, the Air Force chief of staff, said. “Nothing like that could happen.”

    The first casualty of every war is the truth—and the Cold War was no exception to that dictum. Half a century after Kubrick’s mad general, Jack D. Ripper, launched a nuclear strike on the Soviets to defend the purity of “our precious bodily fluids” from Communist subversion, we now know that American officers did indeed have the ability to start a Third World War on their own.

    I knew some of this but not all of it. Frankly it's amazing we're all still alive. I'm not sure it's a good thing that we are, to tell you the truth. We deserve worse.

    Have any of you ever heard of a guy named Stanislav Petrov or the 1983 incident where a Soviet nuclear launch detection system malfunctioned? His determination that it was a malfunction and not an attack may have saved us from total goddamn planetary destruction. It's crazygonuts it has to come down to stuff like this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanislav_Petrov

    Till the Devil came down and flipped my lid
    He gave me a switchblade and he gave me a muse
    Then he vomited acid all over my shoes

    Ive told people my age before, and it comes off as a joke but I believe it to be true, that theres a 15-25% that **** hits the fan and we annihilate ourselves before I turn 70. I truly believe that and Im probably being conservative with the odds.

    I would like to turn away from my normal "all y'all can go **** yourselves" and swing my attention to the man who deserves it the most:

    Steven Ross would you please without hesitation GO **** YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I woke up and started fist pumping when I heard this little punk got arrested. I tend not to be a violent man anymore in my life, at 40 I have learned temperament but I would punch this ****ing punk in the face if I was within arms distance of him.

    I think the likelihood of nuclear annihlation has steeply decreased since the 80s. I don't think its a realistic outcome any longer, at least among the superpowers. Now a terrorist group could most certainly get their hands on a bomb and smuggle it into a harbor and set if off but I don't see an actual nuclear strike carried out by a country on another as something that will happen unless it's 2 small countries like an Iran launching on Saudia Arabia or something like that. Consider it a good by product of our new globally interconnected economies. The super powers depend on each other's economies too much to launch strikes.
    Enjoy your burrito.
