Office for the character building - but it has to be 30 Rock for pure clever joke writing

I was watching this movie today (it has been a few years) and I was taken aback at how relevant and timely it felt - especially as, for the first time in decades, truly adversarial countries are engaging in public nuclear posturing. Additionally, today’s accidental nuclear missile warnings in Hawaii certainly put in perspective how a single wrong push of the button can plunge lives in to chaos, even with all of our advanced technology.

I thought that because of this, the movie could use a discussion thread.

However, I think it would be a shame to limit the discussion to the current real world relevance of nuclear war. This film deserves appropriate discussion for many things: it’s comedy (obviously), its enduring cultural awareness, its acting, and even the way Kubrick shoots the film (including some really great battle scenes).

I hope this thread can foster some great discussions about a great film!

To get this started: One particular aspect I found interesting was the way General Jack Ripper’s rants about “Fluoridation” and “Bodily Fluids”, felt like something Alex Jones could be screaming on infowars right now!

J.J. Watt. People love J.J. Watt, but I just think the guy is a total ham. He does plenty of good charity work, don't get me wrong. But he just seems so... artificial. The way he plays to the cameras. The way he has to be publicized for every good deed he does. Everything he does, all of his quotes, they're all super cliched. He just seems like a text book try hard.

Last year I began learning pottery - it's been an awesome hobby, and I definitely wouldn't call it simple.

Vaccines cause mental retardation. This simply isn't true. And now Minnesota is in the midst of a measles outbreak because anti-vaccine idiots convinced new immigrants not to inoculate their children.

I'm sure someone here will debate if this even happened; but, it has to be going to the moon. It's the most clear example of our insatiable desire to explore. Humans always have been and always will be frontiersmen, we want to find the next great journey! So much so, that we got out our calculators, and our computers (barely), and we attached rockets to a couple of brave fuckers hoping to land them on that thing we had been seeing in the night sky for a million years. We looked with our naked eyes for the farthest thing away and then we went there. That's pretty awesome.

Welp, my highest upvoted post is an egocentric d-bag flipping off the camera.

My highest rated post is this one, but only with 150 upvotes on r/Iamverybadass :(

This guy looks like Tom Hardy if Tom Hardy went on a diet of mostly cheeseburgers and ice cream

They have not personally impacted me. BUT, the idea of Obama era gun laws prompted several of my friends' parents to go on buying sprees at gun shows due to their fear that they would not be able to get certain guns in the future.
