Title: Are "nucular" devices weapons of mass digestion?
Post by: matthewh on 28/06/2019 14:50:31
Nick has asked us:

I recall looking up "nuculus" and reading that a nuculus is the pith of the seed in a stone fruit, and so the word "nucular" would mean "of or pertaining to the pith of a stone fruit's seed".

Could you confirm or deny that this is the case?
If so, would "nucular" devices be Weapons of Mass Digestion?


Can you help us get to the core of this mystery?

I thought it was a variant spelling of "new killer".

Thank you Nick for that kernel of information. It certainly confirms that mutually assured destruction (mad) is definitely nuts.

Well, they obviously would be the true "seeds of destruction".
