Subject: War Games: Thank you, Stanislav Petrov, for 1983.

Written By: Foo Bar on 11/27/10 at 12:02 am

On September 26, 1983, Stanislav Petrov had a funny feeling in his gut.

He played his hunch, his hunch was correct, and because of that, he saved the world.

This weekend, America marks - as it did in 1983 - the holiday of Thanksgiving.  So thanks, Lt. Col. Petrov, for having the balls to go with your gut.
