Here we have a wonderful list of fun facts about what may go wrong when people start using nuclear energy as a weapon. In some cases literally a hardware malfunction is what saved us from horrifying distasters!

Have a creepy day!
In the 1950's the USA built full towns in Nevada including gas stations, grocery stores and homes and filled them with occupants destined to be obliterated by atomic bombs! No this isn't a new breaking story. The occupants of the city were mannequins! These towns were referred to as "Doom Towns"
On January 24th in 1961 a B52 Bomber carrying 2 Nukes crashes in Goldsboro, North Carolina. One of the weapons apparently was not yet armed, however the other one was about 75% ready to detonate. It sounds like we survived this fate due to hardware or software malfunction!
Archaeologists have long enjoyed the mysterious Mohenjo-daro! This was a happening place around 2500 BCE and Apparently "Abandoned" at some point and buried by the desert until it was rediscovered in 1920. Why would Mohenjo-daro be in this list? There are many who point to evidence that this place was actually destroyed by an atomic bomb a few thousand years before we "invented" them! Reports of a quick death showing ancient bodies holding hands in the streets and signs of vitrification made it seem this way, but recently I learned some new information to add to this. In year to come there were more studies revealing that the bodies included people who died in different times. There are signs to indicate that what people originally saw as bodies in the streets were in fact bodies from badly developed burials of the dead. In other words they were bad with graveyards. The name Mohenjo-daro actually translates into something like "mound of the dead".
This is a fun one. From what I can gather in 2013 reports came out regarding Officers falling asleep with the Blast Doors open while on duty in a silo housing nuclear weapons. These are huge doors intended to keep bad guys from getting inside. Now in some reports I also saw a reference to pizza delivery guy being involved in finding the doors open. As if that was not funny enough it now looks like what happened was that they leave the blast doors open when they order pizza per their agreement with the pizza delivery company who had a rule that if the pizza was later than 30 minute it was free. So it sounds more like they left the door open for the pizza guy and fell asleep.
