Y-12 guards suspended over video devices

There's an appropriate time and place for portable gaming. Stuck in a dentist's waiting room? Of course. In the back seat during a lengthy road trip? Go right ahead. Waiting for the movie to start? Acceptable! Working as a security guard stationed in the heart of one of the nation's oldest high-security nuclear weapons plants? No, sir.

Three guards have been suspended for bringing video game devices, including one with transmitting capability, into the heart of a high-security nuclear weapons plant. Wackenhut Services spokeswoman Courtney Henry confirmed to 10News that the three security police officers were suspended without pay for an incident three weeks ago at the Department of Energy's Y-12 nuclear weapons plant in Oak Ridge.

nuclear devices blowing up is not a good thing

I remain unconvinced by your arguments, gintoki. Maybe we should return to the labs and do more tests. Maybe our test subjects were simply allergic to nuclear explosions in the face.

Prettttty terrible. But still, hilariousss!

I don't think a nuclear weapons plant can blow up the planet, unless they said "planet" as in "an american city" as in "the rest of the world doesn't count"

Well the initial explosion wouldn't have, but we'd be like:

At which point someone would push an abnormally large red button, sending nukes to Russia, Cuba, Korea, the entire Middle East, and France for good measure. Also, probably Canada because they talk funny and are slowly killing us with beer and bacon.

By killing almost everyone we'd be sure to hit the person that launched the nuke.

You guys are too funny LOL.

I highly doubt Russia or America would act with any sort of Aggression if something happend for two reasons

The Cold war is over
Russsia is no longer communist.

All that would happen is a fairly large explosion and a massive drop in American economy worse then 1929 causes another world war and escillation into a nuclear holocaust. Sounds like christmas.
