А ведь вчера была знаменательная дата

Двадцать пять лет назад (11 августа 1984 года) президент Рональд Рейган выступая перед тружениками САСШ в частности сказал:

My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."

Такие вот культурные традиции.

    Отстал я от жызни, эхехе. Дедушка русского блоггинга, хуле.

  2. Насколько я помню, этой фразой он проверял микрофон. То есть, он не выступал перед САСШ

    Проверял микрофон он в тот день фразой вроде «У Мэри был барашек»

  3. То есть, фраза о бомбардировке пошла в эфир?

  4. Make your time. U R on da way of destruktion. Hahah.

  5. On August 11, 1984, United States President Ronald Reagan, while running for re-election, was preparing to make his weekly Saturday address on National Public Radio. As a sound check prior to the address, Reagan made the following joke to the radio technicians:

    My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.

    The joke was a parody of the opening line of that day's speech:

    My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you that today I signed legislation that will allow student religious groups to begin enjoying a right they've too long been denied — the freedom to meet in public high schools during nonschool hours, just as other student groups are allowed to do.[1]

    Contrary to popular misconception, the joke was not broadcast over the air; instead it was leaked later to the general populace. But the Tokyo newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun reported in October 1984 that the Soviet Far East Army was placed on alert after word of the statement got out, and that the alert was not withdrawn until 30 minutes later. Congressman Michael Barnes (D-Md.) confirmed that information with then Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger.[2] There was no report of any change in the DEFCON level for the United States.

    В эфир фраза не пошла. Он просто пошутил перед техниками.

    Опять оказалось совковой легендой. Что только совки не приписывают Рейгану, Тэтчер и прочим Черчилям :- (
