"From 1962, when John F Kennedy instituted PAL encoding on nuclear weapons, until 1977, the combination to fire the devastating missiles at the height of the Cold War was just 00000000."

|At least it wasn`t 12345, that`s the kind of thing an idiot would have as the combination on his luggage.|

|ehh I'm guessing since it was during the Cold War you would want firing the missiles to happen as quickly as possible so we could respond quickly in the event of a Russian attack.|
It's not like members of the public got to play around punching random numbers into these devices. I'm sure there are numerous other safeguards in place.
