 yeah, the "joke" was that if one escapes, Earth can escape complete planetary disintegration.

The Chinese and others have been rumored to be working on these superflus that are designed to target humans.

Chinese claims
American claims

Nothings impossible. Though, between us girls, I'm not too worried. It's checked by a dwindling resource base.

Great Scott!!! You're all girls!
What can this mean?
How could I have been so blind???

I believe that if humanity's technology is left unchecked, they will destroy the planet. As in, literally. Shot to pieces.

Isn't there enough nuclear proliferation out there already to destroy the planet? Or is that an urban legend?

People, being largely socialists, confuse the term planet, with humans.
The planet can survive huge meteor strikes, almost up to the size of moons.
Humans can't.
Nor, apparently, can dinosaurs.

Crows comment notwithstanding, nuclear weapons are sought and maintained as glorified insurance programs. Nuclear capability is a good way to make sure: 1) foreign boots don't end up on your soil 2) foreign nukes don't end up on your soil.

Rejoice! Take comfort in the fact that nuclear war is a low probability and the stock pile is more likely to go inert across the globe as resources are diverted to more pressing matters. Sure there is a chance for circumstance to arise where bombs get dropped. The closest Russia and US got to flying nukes at each other was the result of error, not will.
