    I think an old joke pic I made a few years ago will fit here:

    Sure does. :)

    Say, may be you can make it even better on this occasion by making that 'shroom much bigger, so that its head would be directly under "Sky" part of the name? Me no designer though, so may be it's one silly idea. It's just the blast looks a bit too small, you know. Vertibird's perfect, by the way. Me like. :ok:

    Naaah, just one more "item of business" to splice some more taxpayers' billions into few wealthy pockets. The thing will fail miserably vs any "unpleasant people" who have or do one or more of the following:
    - modern ICBM subs;
    - numerous mobile ICBM laucners;
    - habit to live among people you need / want alive;
    - their own satellites which can destroy your own and do so before you use yours;
    - covert ops (including trivial terrorist attacks);
    - deep enough underground facilities (couple hundreds meters of rock should already be enough).

    Now i think both North Korea and Iran have more than one of those features already available to them. So yeah, keep dreamin'.

    Yesh but even Senor House, with his anti-missile/laser defense, couldn't protect Vegas from the sheer numbers of bombs.

    But hat was only because he miscalculated when it would happen and the missiles fell earlier than he thought, and didn't have the upgraded software for his defense system. If it had happened when he thought it would, he would have been able to destroy all the missiles. :nuclear:

    Doesn't matter much, though.

    IRL, both US and Russia have very similar systems. However, even if those systems would prevent any immediate damage to areas they are protecting, at the time of all-out exchange - it still will not "save" neither side from doom. Why? Because most of both countries would be destroyed anyhow, and without all the might of the whole country's resources, neither center would remain significantly powerful long-term. Plus, in all-out exchange of the Fallout games' kind, heavy fallout will most likely happen even in areas protected by above mentioned systems. And then the nuclear winter, which in case of all-out exchange would last several decades, is the ultimate killer. Many expect such a long nuclear winter to lead to "snowball" state of Earth, which would remain for a long time even after nuclear winter itself would gradually wear out - means pretty much new ice age way before we'd have it to Milankovitch cycles alone, which would last for many, many millenia. And that makes places like Washington and Moscow quite probably ending up under ice sheets akin Greenland one.

    Nukes are serious business, eh.

    Do you always have that school teacher attitude, or is that online forums exclusive?

    Neither. Wasn't any kind of lecture. I wonder what is it that you do not like. Length? Certain parts being "too obvious" to you? Or perhaps, you don't see how it relates to the Risewild's post i was replying? Feel free not to answer this, if you don't feel like it.

    Sounds way too smug and condescending to ever be considered polite in tone.

    Curious if the US had a 'Doomsday' machine. The Dead Hand, seriously that's a pretty catchy name.

    Dead Hand (Russian: Система «Периметр», Systema "Perimetr", lit. "Perimeter" System, with the GRAU Index 15E601, Cyrillic: 15Э601),[1] also known as Perimeter,[2] was a Cold War-era automatic nuclear-control system used by the Soviet Union.[3] General speculation from insiders alleges that the system remains in use in the post-Soviet Russian Federation as well.​

    No, it doesn't sound the way you say it does. It is your perception which makes it being so for you, personally, but that's something "on your side", i am sure. Here's why i am sure about it, if you wonder.

    Smug: not a single word in the above post of mine describes whether i am satisfied and/or pleased about anything mentioned. While posting the above post you deem "smug", i had no intention to show off in any way. I just shared what i happen to read on the matter, and i did it for Risewild in particular, and for people of this forum in general. Also, it was only an opinion, and i'll be only glad if someone points out about any mistake in it (if there is any).

    Condescending: not a single word in the above post of mine indicates whether i deem myself more important and/or intelligent than Risewild, or anyone else in particular. Such estimates of any person's personality are simply not present in my post above, nor any hints to such estimations. If you imagined that i "feel" that way based on "tone" of my post - then i assure you that your imagination made a joke on you. I did not feel that way. More, i know Risewild is much more experienced in this forum than i, and i know his sense of humor is at times much better than mine. As far as i can tell, it may well be he's smarter than i am. And i respect it.

    Kind of. But nothing as dedicated as the Perimeter system, yes.

    Russians created the Perimeter system because US had very real plans of nuking USSR out of existense with a first strike, you see. 1st such plan was officially released some time in 1945, and similar plans were released later on during the Cold War as nuclear and deterrence capabilities of both sides were expanding. Source. USSR knew about those plans, and needed something to cool down some hotheads among US command. Which is how the Perimeter system happened ("Dead Hand" is one western nickname for it, only). On the other hand, USSR never planned to wipe out the West. Why? Because USSR needed the West to sell its oil, to get certain kind of commodities it was not able to produce on its own, and later on simply realised that wiping out most of the world tends to harm the remaining parts way too much anyhow.
