"Never bet on the end of the world, it only happens once. But it may not be a bad idea to find a bomb shelter."

Times like these I like to go back and watch one of the all time great films, Dr. Strangelove. I suggest anyone stressing right now, not sleeping at night, having spouses lose jobs (me) just sit down and start loving the bomb..

That clip is fucking classic.

I love that movie. My favorite scene comes right after that scene: the doomsday machine.

"We were afraid of a Doomsday Gap."
"This is preposterous. I have never approved of anything like that."
"Our source was the New York Times."

"It is not only possible, it is essential!"

"Gee I wish we had one of them doomsday machines."

But the best quote:

Dr. Strangelove: Of course, the whole point of a Doomsday Machine is lost, if you *keep* it a *secret*! Why didn't you tell the world, EH?

Ambassador de Sadesky: It was to be announced at the Party Congress on Monday. As you know, the Premier loves surprises.
