    ...where they nuked a spewing, undersea oil gusher, to make it stop?

    It ain't called paranoia - when they're really out to get you. 6 points.

    •  Am I missing something here? Fail Safe (0+ / 0-)

      was about code communications getting FUBAR and we wind up nuking Moscow.  To demonstrate the US's position that it was accidental, the President orders NYC nuked..   (and FLOTUS was visiting NYC....)   Riveting, especially when it aired in the height of the Cold War...

      Forgive me if I dont get the connection to nuking an undersea gusher..
