There was also The War Game which was subsequently banned as it was considered too dangerous
But there were special screenings of it by CND and I went to one of them and it was just ridiculous
Taking shelter under a mattress under the stairs is not remotely effective against radiation exposure


I collected all that sort of shite back in the early 80s. That's started me on a doomsayer journey I continues to this day. One of my friends here was close to the top of CND and the Greenham Common gals. I digress.
ship struck the rocks yesterday, and the worst is yet to be....

JustStarDust is not the sharpest knife in the kitchen drawer. Pilger equated the total output of US atomic bomb tests as the equivalent of exploding one Hiroshima sized bomb every day for 12 years. In comparison the USSR's Tsar bomba was equivalent to 1200 days' worth of that.


:cheers:

I did actually - deliberately say the wrong thing. Of course I knew what John said. Good to know, you took the time, put in some 'effort' (sat there & watched) and corrected my statement.

Deliberately said the wrong thing. Lol.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

I believe him, ackshully. Thousands wouldn't, but I do. Really and truly, I do. And I would no more dream of uttering a lie than JustStarDust.

Not all lies are bad. 'White lies', I think they're called.
But ok... Nobody likes lies in general, so I'll try and get my point, or 'facts', 100% correct, all of the time. I only expect the same back from rational skeptics.
