Given the current situation in the world, I thought it would be good to take a nostalgic trip back to a, more, um, sane era by watching Dr. Strangelove. For example, there is Peter Sellers acting the role of a world leader who actually wants to limit the damage. Then we get to ponder the difference between an exponential decay of radioactivity, vs the exponential growth rate of other phenomena based on a reversed sign of the half life.
Of course I should repent as a Christian for viewing the current world as some sort of Black Comedy, since the tragedies are real. As always, I trust that God will bring about good through the chaos. Yet at the same time, I expect mankind to eventually make choices of the destructive sort described in Dr. Strangelove. This won't be the act of a single madman triggering events, but rather humanity in mass going off to destruction in a raving herd. But for now I will enjoy things and do my best to make things better.
