Alarmingly plausible  
Childproof lock added to White House nuclear launch button.

What it really needs is a crazyproof lock.

Since using nuclear weapons (ever, at all, for any reason) could be defined as the ultimate in suicidal insanity on a grand scale, the simplest solution would be to just quietly glitch the system so that if it's ever used, it self-destructs without launching anything. Maybe it could also shoot a poison dart or something into the person who tried to use it.

It would be nice to think that maybe some brilliant geeks have already taken care of this, in all the nations that have nukes.

Yo, in that same issue, did you see this?

Darth Vader has denied being ‘Dark Lord of the Sith’ and said he self-identifies as a leading light of the Alt-Jedi movement today.
