49. I don't trust anyone with nuclear weapons......

- Or any nuclear material of any kind. We haven't evolved sufficiently, in my view, to be trusted with such knowledge. And I especially don't trust US, since we have the most nuclear weapons and thus a greater probability of fucking something up with them -- by accident, or whatever. And we have the ''most accidents'' with them too. Absolute butter-fingers. We've got bombs that fell out of aircraft, or those that crashed or otherwise sunk into the drink with oodles of nuclear weapons in-tow. And there all still down there next to Davy Jones locker -- too deep or difficult, and/or risky to try and retrieve -- they say. Literal ticking time bombs.

Peruse through these when you have an hour or five to kill.......
