The U.S. nuclear "secret unlock code" was... 00000000 (*facepalm*)

The Strategic Air Command (SAC) in Omaha quietly decided to set the “locks” to all zeros in order to circumvent this safeguard. During the early to mid-1970s, during my stint as a Minuteman launch officer, they still had not been changed. Our launch checklist in fact instructed us, the firing crew, to double-check the locking panel in our underground launch bunker to ensure that no digits other than zero had been inadvertently dialed into the panel. SAC remained far less concerned about unauthorized launches than about the potential of these safeguards to interfere with the implementation of wartime launch orders. And so the “secret unlock code” during the height of the nuclear crises of the Cold War remained constant at 00000000.

Is it me or does Johnny have a giant head?


Sorry AK, WTF can you say about something like that? You can't even act surprised about it.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
