That doesn't mean you can't aim nukes at them ;p

For clarification: I'm against nukes, and for disarmament. Especially as the £20billion or so being used to revamp the UK's nukes could instead be used to plug up some of the gaping holes in the economy - what's the point in "deterring" people from nuclear war for 20 years when half the population will end up living in squalor in 30?

I never understood the whole "Aiming missiles" thing. I mean, all the stuff I've seen on how the various long-range missiles work is that they're vertical takeoff arc missiles.

So.. why bother keeping it "aimed" at something. It's not a rocket on a sled. It's a guided missile. You just punch in the target as you're launching the damned thing. No sense in aiming it at anything specific other than Away From Earth In Case Of Accidental Launch Or Something.

What about At Ourselves Because Should We Somehow Manage To Accidentally Launch This Damned Thing At Another Country, It Will Cause A Meaningless War, Killing Millions, Which Would Not Be Very Good, So We Should Just Wipe All Our Other Missiles Out. Or Something.

Blowing up the missile base with your own missiles does seem the safest thing to do, from the point of view of the rest of the world. Unless, of course, another missile base in your country (or an allied country) misinterprets the great big boom as an enemy launching their missiles at your missile bases (which are, admittedly, pretty nice targets), and goes ahead to start that Great Big War anyway...

Well, the warhead arming and the launch of the missile are two separate things. The idea of pointing it Away From Earth is that if it does accidentally launch, it'll just go out in space somewhere and that's the last you'll see of it.

If you launch it at another city, you end up destroying.. probably a couple of apartment buildings or factories or whatever, pissing them off greatly, unleashing radioactive material in a local park of theirs, and providing them scraps to possibly attempt to see how your warhead works. Which isn't really a good idea.

Of course, I'm not sure how much of the warhead would be destroyed as it crashed into the surface of the Earth passing through a couple of buildings. Maybe all of it, maybe not much.. I don't know. I just know it'd be a bad PR move and would piss off the country you hit, even if it wasn't an actual nuclear explosion.

True, that makes sense. The destruction of an armed warhead at the missile base would probably do more damage than the launch of the unarmed missile at a civillian area (this, of course, depends what gets hit - if a high-rise block of flats, the damage is going to be significantly increased, particularly on the loss-of-life front, whereas a bunch of fields probably won't complain about some more scrap metal lying about.

I believe I am justified in resurecting this thread in light of the recent election.

case in point: I recently came across this infallible logic that someone put forward to explain why they believed that Barack Obama bought the election:

Obama spent more, two words: basic math

Back in HS, I had a history class in which the professor was VERY big on general reading in order to gain insights into history. Every month we had to pick a book from the school library (approved by him), read it, and write a report on it. I had one classmate who was horrified by this idea....apparently he hadn't read a book of his own volition in SEVEN YEARS. (He'd read stuff required by classes generally, just never read for recreation). Anyway, a third classmate and I tried to explain the merits of such reading to this guy, about how books broaden your horizons, expose you to new ideas. In response to this, the guy (who wasn't very clever/quick-witted to begin with, and PROBABLY didn't realize what he was saying) uttered the single stupidest thing I have ever heard a human being say, while actually MEANING it at the time:

"Well, what do you need ideas for, anyway?"

Isn't the whole reason you spend more money than the other guy that doing so gets you more votes than it gets the other guy? If not, why spend any money at all? Why not put those millions upon millions you spent into the economy so it's slightly less screwed up when you take office? Granted, it almost certainly didn't make up the total difference, but it does seem pretty obvious to me that 'more money = more votes'. The average person is even dumber than the person who made that comment, I'd guess.

This is courtesy of my brother-in-law. He was in some class or another and some guy was talking about cars, I guess, and made mention of how many horses some car has (in reference to horse-power of course). One person speaks up and says something along the lines of cars not having horses.

But, THEN, someone else speaks up and says something along the lines of, "Yeah they do. Like Fred & Barney. You know, the Flintstone's"

My brother-in-law had a few more stories about the same individual. I need to try and remember some more of them.

Ok, this isn't a comment exactly, but a conversation I overheard.

I went to Arby's for lunch one day, and sat down there to eat. I overheard a gentleman sitting with his wife, while on his cell phone having a conversation with someone - I would assume a banker. He detailed every single financial minutiae of his life. SSN#, how many credit cards and how much was on them, debt, mortgage, how many miles were on his vehicles, etc. On and on and on he went. I kept listening in amazement while he did this in a public place.

So I was talking with a friend about Roe v. Wade when an acquaintance entered the conversation through the following: "I think women should be allowed to vote and all, but I don't think abortion should be legal".

Really, women should be allowed to vote? Who would've thought that that would be a position that it would be necessary to state? If you don't say that, do people assume that you don't think women should be allowed to vote?

I try to write down stupid comments from my classmates whenever possible. If I did I would never turn anything in... but here are a few.

Teacher: Where is Ishtanbul?
Student: Amsterdam!

This next question was asked in Spanish four, so everyone had three years of spanish experience, AND the person was a native Spanish speaker.
What languange do they speak in spain?
Roman!

When given a packet:
"I don't like to read, so I'm not doing this."

Teacher: What's the most notable literary work of the the U.S.?
Student: Doctor Seuss!

This next one isn't exactly stupid, but the person definitely wasn't thinking. It was on the morning announcements.
Anchor1: Hey Anchor2, did you know that today is the aniversery of the stock market crash of 1929?
Anchor2: That's cool.
Anchor1: No it's not.

In Spanish class we had just read a legend about a fox who falls asleep in a chicken coup then wakes up the next morning. He realizes the farmers will kill him if they see him, so he plays dead. The farmers take his fur and teeth and stuff for "medical purposes," until one wants the foxes heart. The fox runs off because he doesn't want to die. We were reviewing the story and the teacher says, "So the farmer takes his knife out; what does he want?" The teacher then makes a stabbing motion and thumps her chest. One student yells out "Big Man!"

In my government class someone asked "If a democrat becomes president will gas prices go down?" Everyone knows that the policy doesn't matter at all, gas prices are only determined based on the party of the president.

Finally, when asked what branch of government the president is in, my government class responded in unison "legislative"....

..Coop.

Teacher: What's the most notable literary work of the the U.S.?

... That's.. kinda debatable, really. Notability is debatable. And Dr. Seuss is awesome.


Was the Big Man kid just trying to be an asshole?

In my government class someone asked "If a democrat becomes president will gas prices go down?" Everyone knows that the policy doesn't matter at all, gas prices are only determined based on the party of the president.
.. eh? It's more of market forces that change the gas price. It has little, if anything, to do with who the President is. If anything, it'd have to do more with the legislative branch for changing the tariffs on imported oil or gasoline.

If the joke was unintentional, you're amazing. If it wasn't, *facepalm*

I've had some pretty bad things said by some people in my Sociology class; it's full of people who have not-so-bright futures and care little for the class, with a few exceptions. One of them commented, when we were discussing unintentional discrimination based on looks, "Yeah, but it's their fault that they're ugly, they choose to be."

One of my friends (good friends, mind you) can have some ditsy moments. She's in a lot of my classes. In English, she asked me, "What's an adjective?" I'm pretty bad with parts of speech (we never learned grammar as such in my school), but I just about hit her when she asked me that.

In a library discussion:
Girl 1: Obama's a terrorist.
Me: ...no, he's not. Don't you think that it might, say, be on the news if he was?
Girl 1: The media is keeping it a secret.
Me: And McCain would too, right? You need to check your facts.
...
Girl 2: Global warming is a lie. If if was true, it would be in the Bible.
G2's boyfriend: What about cell phones, and cars?
Girl 2: Those were man-made.
G2B + Me: But global warming was caused by man, too!
Girl 1: How do you know?
Me: They recently did a study confirming that it could not possibly be normal fluctuations in the earth's average heat.
Girl 1: But if the earth was getting warmer, it wouldn't snow in the winter. You're wrong.

I've been reading this thread, and the second (global-warming) girl actually caused me to die a little inside. Dear Jeebus that is stupid.

Maybe global-warming-related stupidity bothers me more than the regular, non-downfall-of-all-civilisation flavour of stupidity.

Earlier today, my mother emptied out an aluminum pie pan. She then took it over to the trash cans, looked puzzled for a moment, then turned to me and asked, "Is this paper or plastic?"

this isn't really a stupid comment I suppose, but it is still kinda stupid and makes me sad inside...

I was at a shopping centre the other day and for some reason the escalator had broken and wasn't moving. There was a man in front of us with his little kid, the kid stepped onto the escalator and stopped, expecting it to move for him. When it didn't, the kid just kept standing there, even though the dad was trying to explain and get him to walk (as well as apologising to us profusely).

It really did make me a bit sad and wonder if I were to have children whether they'd forget how to walk like that someday.

I have already posted this in another thread, but I think it belongs here as well. One day during physcis a girl asked the teacher if the dinosaurs lived before or after Big Bang. We were around 15 at the time...

Why is it that 4chan is either infinitely awesome, infinitely bad, or "lolwut", but never any intermediary level?

Introducing a "Great day of stupidity" in 9 parts.

Part 1. Maths - trigonometry.
Grade 9-10.
-So, we have to solve this trigonometric equation to go on further with the task. What should we do, class?
-Wait... What is 7 times 9? No, really... Why is noone answering me? Nobody knows it? I think I'll use my calculator!
-You need to? o_O

Part 2. Deutsche sprache. (German language)-Was ist der Name dieser Stadt? (What's the name of the city?)
-So-so la-la.
-Err? Wo wonnst du? (Where do you live?)
-So-so la-la.
-Umm... Wonnst du in London? (Do you live in London?)
-So-so la-la.
-Is the only phrase you have ever learnt in these 4 months is "so-so la-la"???
-So-so la-la! So-so la-la!!! *Giggle* It sounds so funny!!!
-Then it is really disappointing, especially considering that you even pronounce it incorrectly! o_O (so-so la-la is pronounced "zoh zoh lah lah" and means "so-so, about average")

Part 3. Economic geography.
-You see, poultry production had decreased dramatically in the last year in this region due to increased imports. You can see the data in your textbook. As you can see,...
-Poultry, like chickens and eggs?
-Yes, of course. So...
-I have a question! How do they make them?
-What are you referring to? Please be clear!
-Eggs. Yes, it must be really hard to put that shell on...
-(class) o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O

Part 4. Nonorganic Chemistry.
-So, Andy will now tell us what types of salts are there except normal and acidic(H+) ones. (basic (OH-) and double salts, of course)
-They are... They are different and special... Ummmm... Hey, Josh! Quick! She wants to know something... What are they?
-(Josh) Well, you see... Acidic ones are sour, normal ones are just normal salts, that is, salty! And, if you think a bit...
-So yeah, the other ones are sweet and bitter salts, teacher...
-Do you have your textbook? Did you read it? Did you... understand what you had read?
-OF COURSE!
-o_O

Part 5. History of Russia.
-So, your essays about Ivan the IV period are there. About oprichniks, war, culture of this period, expansion of the Russian state... what is that?
"John Doe. Essay. Ivan the Terrible was terrible. He was scary, big and frightening. After seeing him, his enemy started to fear, ran away and died. The end." That is all??? o_O

Part 6. Politology.
-So, there are many kinds of oppressive fascisms, and all of them hold heavily militaristic views on order in the country. However, Nazism was one most well-known. Holocaust... Do you know what is on 27th of January? The victims' memory day?
-Yeah. At this day... we... err... celebrate the death of Jews, right?
-o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O

Part 7. Electricity and magnetism.
-So, this lab was hard. Oh, what's this smoke?
-The experiment went wrong, teacher. What's that?
-In fact, in this experiment you were not supposed to pour salt solution straight into power socket! You have wires to use! o_O

Part 8. Electrical circuits.
-So, Amy will now tell us about the workings of voltmeter.
-What's about it? It's simple.
-Could you at least name the parts?
-Parts? It's really simple! It has... 1. a box, 2. a gauge, 3. a cover and 4. an arrow. That's all. You just watch the arrow!
-o_O. What about the actual inside components? Its operation principle?
-How would I know?
-o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O

Part 9. Break.
-So, Sam. Tell us about your hobbies...
-Er, what?
-What do you do in your free time?
-FREE time? Well, in my free time I... go to school. But that's only if I have nothing really important to do!
-o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O

They cannot defend themselves; they cannot run away. INSANITY is their only way of escape.

Damn that's bad. This one in particular makes me remember the story of someone at our school who was dared to stick solder into a power point and turn it on, resulting in a small amount of mayhem. A few days after that, when the story was recounted to a teacher, we learned the following physics formula:
[math]R \propto IQ[/math]
which translates as: "The external resistance of an object placed in a power socket is proportional to the IQ of the person who inserted it."

Something I heard in Math today, about the Homecoming dance that was this weekend.

"Yeah, they played something by Elvis, I think"
*Something I couldn't hear, as I was all the way across the classroom*
"Oh yeah, that was by Michael Jackson. Same Thing"
*Teacher Facepalms*
