Countsofmontecrisco

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: Counts of Montee Crisco

Sentence: The number of known nuclear weapons seems to be guesstimated about 120,000 or so. The number of nuclear weapons in countries amassing them in secret, is not known. Even though, we may not know, how many there are, we do know it is enough to destroy this planet. A sign that hung in Albert Einstein's office at Princeton University read 'Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.' Perhaps societies, should not only worry about the countups of nuclear weapons, but also about the counterbalance of nuclear arms, and especially about, the countdowns that come before launching them. Better still, those in power should worry more about what they can do to counteract nuclear arms, than about counterattack with nuclear arms! Einstein also said "The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking...the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind." I like to think of the hearts of mankind who have power over nuclear arms, and the nuclear arms, that could radioactively fry and burn this planet to a crisp, as the CountsofMonteCrisco.

Etymology: CountsofMonteCrisco is a pun on the COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, which is the title and persona of a world famous book by Alexandre Dumas. The Count of Monte Cristo is the persona that Edmond assumes, when he escapes from his incarceration, and while he carries out his dreadful vengeance. This persona is marked by a pale countenance and a smile which can be diabolical or angelic. A persona, much like those in control of nuclear weapons, might possess. CRISCO - is a vegetable shortening used for frying, just as nuclear weapons can be used to radioactively fry this planet. HENCE the nuclear bumblers of this world, as well as the nuclear arms, could be referred to as the CountsofMonteCrisco!

COMMENTS:

A possible countermeasure might be a space colony, if all else fails. - silveryaspen, 2009-02-04: 02:38:00

love the addition of Crisco - not too happy about the idea of frying though - Jabberwocky, 2009-02-04: 12:39:00
