An unhappy rich man isn't as rich as a happy, poor man.

fragility of human civilization

I've known about that for a long time. You have no idea how close we came to terminating all life on planet Earth as we know it. October 16–28, 1962, two men faced each other and decided whether the rest of the planet deserved to exist. And, to make matters worse, after we realized just how fucked up we were, were still fucking up.

Broken Arrow refers to an accidental event that involves

nuclear weapons,

warheads or components that does not create a risk of nuclear war.

The US Department of Defense has officially recognized at least 32 "Broken Arrow" incidents. Examples of these events include:

1950 British Columbia B-36 crash
1956 B-47 disappearance
1958 Mars Bluff B-47 nuclear weapon loss incident
1958 Tybee Island mid-air collision
1961 Yuba City B-52 crash
1961 Goldsboro B-52 crash
1964 Savage Mountain B-52 crash
1964 Bunker Hill AFB runway accident
1965 Philippine Sea A-4 incident
1966 Palomares B-52 crash[6]
1968 Thule Air Base B-52 crash
1980 Damascus Titan missile explosion, Arkansas

Kinda makes you warm and fuzzy all over, don't it?
