Nuke-u-ler. It's pronounced nuke-u-ler.

One bomb.

No respect for human life.

Where would you take out?

Totally hypothetical of course.

This topic was started on another board and got... slightly interesting and heated.

Have all the people I want taken out been rounded up to this area or is it as it stands right now?

i don't understand the title. it is actually pronounced "new-clee-ur"

maybe it is just me, and given recent events in my life. but this is pretty nasty. i'm not participating. i just wanted to restate the pronounciation.

It's from the Simpsons.

Sorry - title was an attempt at recreating a Simpsons quote. The point is to determine where in the world as it stands now you would rather not have as an issue. On another forum Jerusalem was the big winner (if you could describe it as a win).

It is a nasty question - but one that can open other avenues of discussion.

I can think of plenty of places with problems I'd "rather not have as an issue", but I can't think of any where dropping a nuclear bomb would do much to 'solve' them, whether I had "respect for human life" or not. Not sure where you first saw this question, but I must say it seems like a pretty f*ed-up way of getting at the topic, especially on an international forum such as this one.

True story: my old boss (an Israeli Jew) thought he had the perfect solution for the Middle East. Give everyone in Israel (+ Gaza and West Bank) 2 weeks to vacate the land (give them all immigration papers for other countries) and then drop several nukes so the land is uninhabitable for 10,000 years. Anyone who chooses to stay, too bad for you.

I'm not joking either.

That example was pretty much what people came up with on another forum. Utterly horrific and unPC - but it openend the avanues of conversation. From there we discussed how Australia may have ended up being the Jewish homeland (true story - north Western Australia was mooted as apossible home land in the 40's) and how the Arab neighbours to Israel would handle millions more refugees etc.

Go to the conservative site Free Republic, and you'll see suggestions like that 10 times in any Middle East/Muslim thread. Turn it all into a glass ashtray! Yeehaw!

Auckland. Now where's timothius so we can continue our long-standing Auckland vs Wellington "feud"?
