A Boring Nuclear Attack

[In response to someone pointing out that Nicolae manages to make a nuclear attack boring.]

"Do you gentlemen understand the significance of a 100 megaton bomb?"

There was silence and the rolling of eyes. Carpathia continued, "To put it in perspective, the history books tell us..." and on and on he droned, until someone yawned. "Oh, I'm sorry. Does the prospect of millions of people dying bore you?"

Yawning person is hit with the sudden realization that, yes, he just responded to learning that millions of people would die with no reaction other than to be annoyed that he'd have to listen to one of his boss' boring speeches. How, he wonders, did he ever fall so low?

The knowing smile on Nicolae's face isn't helping.
