Never thought about it when I watched the movie but who exactly is nuking South America and Africa with missiles out of the South Atlantic Ocean and why?

31

u/Alexaxas Jul 05 '22

The ocean launches are from submarines.

The general “shoot everything at everyone” is because full-scale nuclear war doctrine is basically to hit all of your enemy’s forces/bases and all of their allies’ forces/bases regardless of location. The enemy is expected to do the same, hence “Mutually Assured Destruction.”

I was curious so looked it up. Biggest timezone jump you can experience is crossing the Chinese Afghanistan border with a difference of 3.5 hours. Across the dateline in the Pacific there are also some islands relatively close together that are by a weird quirk 26 hours apart time wise

82

u/507t04 Jul 05 '22

26 hours apart time wise

Won't it make you 'feel' only 2 hours off? The date would be different sure but as for the day cycle it's a smaller difference

74

u/Kendertas Jul 05 '22

Correct. Just found it interesting you could be 26 hours seperated when a day is only 24 hours

47

u/RHeegaard Jul 05 '22

It's due to trading. If a country trades more with countries in America, they often try to have their workdays have as much overlap with those countries as possible, and decide to be on the American side of the date-line.

If they trade more with Oceanic countries, they often decide to be on the other side of the date-line instead. Hence why UTC+14 and UTC-10 is the same time but on different days, one overlaps best for American trading, the other overlaps best for Oceanic trading.

u/i_miss_arrow Jul 05 '22

I feel like that would make it difficult to effectively communicate experiences with time across long distances.

Like, anywhere in the world we can understand what 9 am means, 5 pm, 3 am, and so forth, regardless of where you are.

But how do you communicate 9 am in words in a way that everybody will instantly understand in context of the rest of the day? Mid morning could be a range of hours depending on who you ask. It could vary culturally depending on region.

u/TheFuckerNugger Jul 05 '22

There's ways to tell the difference between fireworks and gunshots. Typically, fireworks have more of a pop sound, apposed to a gunshots cracking sound. Gunshots sounds also tend not to echo, but travel farther than fireworks. Fireworks echo a bit and the sound quickly fades even at shorter distances. It does take a bit of paying attention to the difference in the sounds to notice a lot of the differences, but you can pick up on it with close observation.

u/DerpMcGuirk Jul 06 '22

I heard a variation of that from a coworker who was in the Army. If you hear pops, it's firecrackers. If you hear the sound of air whizzing by, it's bullets (kiss the ground).

Your lucky if they’re just they day after for you. I’m my neighborhood they start a week before the fourth and last a week after. And they consistently go to 1:00 AM.

I heard it all weekend and well through the night. Growing up the city I lived in MN allowed fireworks for 2 weeks after the 4th. It's just part of living the US of A

The firecracker heard around the world

If the firecracker in question was a 500 gigaton nuclear bomb, then it's possible that the dude heard it from a distant timezone.

We're under a burn ban so I didn't hear/see a single flicker.

They were fucking big fireworks.

u/magoo_d_oz Jul 05 '22

my first thought is that they're a sovereign citizen and have decided that their house is in whatever timezone where it's still the fourth.

but then again, if they've declared independence from the US, why are they celebrating the fourth?

Maybe the existence of timezones explains why someone here (southern England) was setting off fireworks last night around 10pm...

Ah yes, because how can your neighbors be in another timezone then you (It took me a second to get this)

u/MechAegis Jul 05 '22

Our local firework event was usually happened yesterday July 4th. Seems like they had a vendor issue or supplies idk. They will do the fireworks tonight July 5th.

u/ThriceDamnedSandwich Jul 05 '22

Yesterday? Bitch, we get to hear fireworks all fucking month around here (or at least for 2 and a half weeks).

u/kat_goes_rawr Jul 05 '22

Fireworks are a week long event. That’s why China sells them so cheap.
