Turns out Randall could have made some money telling the Air Force how bad an idea this was if he was born a bit earlier.

I'm not so sure about that, he might have just encouraged them for comic effect. There would have been plenty of people who could have, would have if asked, tell the Air Force it was a bad idea for free. One wonders if it was ever a serious idea or just propaganda to confuse the Russians, I mean, acting like a raving lunatic seem to work to some extent for Trump. Also, I'd guess IF it was serious they were only trying to avoid direct hits on hardened silos where even a hundred meters would help, not protect say, cities.
