anyone catch that rather good, if somewhat hyperbolic, C4 programme last night on how the paranoia of the Soviets in 1983 lead them to think that a NATO war game was the cover for a nuclear first strike. The dramatic reconstructions were only marred by the bit where they talked about how when the soviet agent working within NATO needed to send a special signal he used a modified calculator. Cut to dramatic reconstruction of man keying numbers into calculator. And what number appears on the LED display, 55378008. which as everyone who was a boy in the 80s with their first calculator knew spelt out BOOBLESS when turned upside down.|
yes, I do need to get out more
