(Image courtesy bug138)

My away message for work:

I’m out of the office Monday and Tuesday, December 18 and 19 as December 18th is International Test your Nuclear Weapons Day (btw, i’m not serious).

But what is serious is that December 18th in history has been a day that countries have truly tested their nuclear weapons.

–December 18, 1978 France performs nuclear test at Muruora Island

–December 18, 1978 U.S.S.R. performs underground nuclear test

–December 18, 1970 U.S. performs nuclear test at Nevada Test Site

–December 18, 1969 U.S. performs nuclear test at Nevada Test Site

–December 18, 1968 U.S.S.R. performs nuclear test at Eastern Kazakh/Semipalitinsk U.S.S.R.

–December 18, 1966 U.S.S.R. performs nuclear test at Eastern Kazakh/Semipalitinsk U.S.S.R.

–December 18, 1964 U.S. performs nuclear test at Nevada Test Site

–December 18, 1962 U.S.S.R. performs nuclear test at Novaya Zemlya U.S.S.R.

On this day let’s pray for a safer world.

I’m returning back to work on Wednesday, December 20. If you need immediate assistance, please contact Todd Rector at 312/xxx-xxxx, xxxxxx@xxxxx.com.
