    It's so strange to me how the phrase "classified top secret" got shortened to just "classified" and we all accept it now. Every time you hear the word "classified," try mentally replacing it with "designated." "I'm sorry that information is designated." "Designated what?"

    @CGP Grey, There's an error in the graph which starts at 1:33. The numbers (of warheads) climbs on the left, and jumps from 25k, to 35k, then to 30k, then to 40k. Food for thought next time.

    Hercules was connected to several environmental disasters. Chattanooga TN was site to one of their largest TNT plants from WW2 through the end of the Vietnam War. This site was originally constructed by Hercules and was instrumental in the streamlining of the production process. All of these TNT sites have cost millions to clean up as they were mostly near large population centers.

    Hey just watched a q&a with grey before this and I figured a suggestion would be better here. You’ve said that behind every video is a lot of failures, maybe some of these failures could go on a smaller separate channel so that die hard cgp fans could watch them but casual viewers wouldn’t have to dig through content to find more popular videos. Or maybe make them a patreon reward or something, that way you wouldn’t have to edit them very much, it’d be kind of like a look behind the scenes at a raw video.

    ''America should destroy all its nuclear weapons immediately. Then it should withdraw all its troops from every country in the world where they are stationed. Then it should pay money to every single person in the whole wide world who has ever been hurt by America. Then it should say sorry. Then it should suicide itself. Then... and only then.. .will the world say ''Goodbye, America! We always hated you!''. After that, there will be peace and love and kindness and rainbows and teddy bears and everything will be wonderful forever and ever and ever. There.''

    I thought the reason the signs were in Russian is because that because neither side could really trust each other, they both took hostages. And TEKOI was were they were kept.

    CGP Grey I have to warn you about what's going on with Patreon. People signing HUNDREDS of arbitration claims and suing Patreon MASSIVELY. This could mean they can't afford all of these claims and come for their users money. Your money. Please be cautious about Patreon for the foreseeable future.

    Fun fact, some of the minuteman missiles were used to launch satellites as part of the Minotaur rocket family. A peaceful use of military hardware.(sort of, most payload launched on Minotaurs are NRO (National Reconnaissance Office), so spy satellites)

    The chart at 4:52 says Tekoi was an SLBM facility so wouldn't its motors be for the Trident series missiles and not the Minuteman series? Every source I've found says Minuteman but why would it have been listed under SLBM?
