What are we going to do tonight, Brain?

..The same thing we do every night, Pinky, Try to take over the world.

...or blow it up.

Well. Yes. Russia has a Doomsday device. Has for 25 years. Wired story link below.

Inside the Apocalyptic Soviet Doomsday Machine


  1. I read about this in the magazine. On the one hand, its not terribly surpising when you think about the Soviet mentality.

    There's an old joke about a Soviet peasant who digs up a magic lamp and is given a wish by the genie within.

    "Hmm," thinks the peasant." Ive always wanted a goat. My neighbor has a goat, and I don't have one. Genie -- kill my neighbors goat."

  2. LOL! I have not heard that before, but it makes total sense.
