Blind Freddy Could Have Activated Nuclear Bombs

EXPLOSION 8Oh for goodness sakes. Guess what the secret code was to authorize the launching of the U.S. nuclear missiles at the height of the Cold War? How’s about 00000000. Yep, we were 8 zeroes away from being blown to kingdom come. Well, not me per say as I wasn’t even born yet but everyone else.The reasoning behind the code was the fear that if communication lines were knocked out during a war, soldiers wouldn’t have a clue how to activate the bombs . Officials insist that the codes for launching all nuclear weapons today are a little more complicated. Hmm, I should hope so, or all the codebreakers would be out of work.

Want sauce with that?
