    Quick Sopka, delete your browsing history.
    You searched the internet to death!

  • Thomas Dimensor

    Ah, it seems that the connection loss was caused by WW3 starting.

    • Chris

      Based on what I know of the Internet today… unless there was a precision strike, it is possible that WW3 happened… then several hours later the internet actually shuts down. The “internet” is a strange beast in the amount of redundancy it has.

      • Oh sure for ALL the internet. For Internet ACCESS to this compound, however, cut the right wires and you’d quickly lose it ;)

      • DeNitro

        Just one 10 kilo ton sized fusion warhead in high altitude EMP burst, Instant off switch of internet for a whole continent. Only decades older slower low bandwidth Military connections have mentionable chance of function after few seconds. Far too much expense to harden to that level when all the endpoint electronics will all cease to work.

  • T.R.

    SOPKA seems unaware of what happened in the world, so I expect it didn’t intend for things to get out of hand (if it had any hand at all in what happened…)

    Dan: please tell me that Administrator Sokolov is named Yakov and that he’s a lawyer by trade… Or did you pick that name by random? I don’t know why, but that association popped into my head as soon as I saw his name called out by the flunky.

    And I wonder if Konstantin is descended from the technician in this scene. The tech seems to understand SOPKA’s internals, and a well-trained replacement would understand how dangerous SOPKA could be if it escaped its restraints to pursue it’s original directives.

    • Oh no what did I accid…I mean, intentionally parody? XD

      • T.R.

        James Sokolove – ambulance chasing lawyer. Had lots of TV ads in the past…

        • Heh, that explains why nothing came up on my hasty google query XD

  • DeNitro

    Remember 1991, The Cold war was over and to celebrate this they set the Doomsday Clock to 17 minutes, two full minutes beyond it’s original 15 minutes to midnight range.

    Now,, that same Doomsday Clock is set at 2.1/2 minutes until our distruction…. It doesn’t take thousands of warheads and evil A.I. to end society, just two idiots willing to press the wrong buttons..

    • Matt [in Middletown]

      Not my fault, the button was so glowy and pretty!

      • DeNitro

        LOL, You not press it? If it was protected by Razor Wire, Four locked steel doors, Crazed Attack Dogs, and a automated mini cannon, Your compelled to press it, just because they told you too never do it. :-)

        • Matt [in Middletown]

          13B artilleryman: “I was just doing a function test.”
          *Meanwhile, all defenses around the button have been obliterated in bizarre ways because nobody breaks things quite like a GunBunny.*

    • the guys that set the clock must be having a hard time deciding what to do now. not like they have many minutes left to convey how stupidly bad the situation is. I guess they never thought it was out of raw idiocy that the danger would come
