Random Conversation

Me: I'm probably going to go out and try and find some missile silos with Matt on Saturday.

Mom: How? Are you going to just look for big abandoned silos?

Me: Well, for starters, they're buried.

Mom: Oh, so you're going to go out with a shovel and dig?


Mom: Are they like a cellar door then?

Me...Yes, a 110 ton cellar door hardened against a direct hit by a thermonuclear weapon...

For context, I am planning on going out with a friend from AFROTC who lives in Omaha to hunt down some missile silos sometime soon. There are 12 abandoned Atlas ICBM sites around Omaha, and 3 Nike-Ajax abandoned SAM sites. I'll make sure to bring my shovel so I can dig them up.
