About this Blog

The Loose Nukes is an attempt (by people who should probably be under 24 hour supervised psychiatric care) to bring attention to somewhat serious issues like nuclear weapons, militarism and other seemingly random, unrelated issues through vain attempts at social satire and other futile gestures of total contempt for a fading empire that continues to employ nuclear weapons, the ultimate instruments of an erectile dysfunctional national security state, as instruments of foreign policy. OK, you probably get the idea by now. We are obsessed by run-on sentences, peace and justice, having fun, and don't know when to quit. At any rate, we don't think nuclear weapons are a very good idea, and are most definitely unhealthy for living things. We also think the folks running this Empire should just get over it.

And now the NOT SO FINE PRINT: Read further at your own risk... and remember, DON'T PANIC; this is all SATIRE at its worst (or best, depending on one's mental state)! And some of the stuff in here is even true!!!

Get Your Master of Drones Degree Today!

Are you depressed about the high cost of a college education?  Worried that your bachelors degree (or even a Masters or PhD) won't help you pay off that huge college debt until you're ready to retire (and maybe not even then)??  Worried that there won't even be jobs in your chosen profession???
Well, worry no more!!!  The folks at Unmanned Vehicle University (UVU) have got you covered.
It's "Unmanned Education" at its best.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are the wave of the future.  They are all the rage in terrorist tourist hotspots like Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen where they're killing people in droves.  And the market for UAVs (and all the jobs associated with them) is huge.  There is no end in sight for their possible uses, although picking off would-be "terrorists" (pretty much anyone with dark skin, a beard and a gun it would seem) is still Numero Uno for President Obama and his merry band of hunter-killers.

Learn the basics now . For the latest UAV developments take the online UAV FUNDAMENTALS EXECUTIVE COURSE course. This 8 week, 2 hours per week, course is taught online with a live instructor and is for anyone who wants a solid understanding of "Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle Components, UAV Communications & Data Links, UAV Sensors & Characteristics, UAV Ground Control  Systems, Civil UAV Types, Roles and Operations, Small UAVs, Civil Airspace Integration, Sense and Avoid Systems, UAV Mishaps, Causes of Failure, Improving Reliability, Human Machine Interface, UAV Alternative Propulsion (Fuel Cells and Solar), UAV Navigation, UAV Autonomous Operations, UAV Swarming, Future UAV Roles & Technologies."

In addition to the Executive Course you can work towards your Master's of Engineering
Unmanned (Air/Ground/Sea) Systems Engineering, or even a PhD Degree
Unmanned (Air/Ground/Sea) Systems Engineering.  With one of these degrees you will be soaring toward a brighter future.

The military is currently the largest user of UAVs, and growing.  There is no end to the possibilities for arming UAVs and killing people.  The Pentagon is even considering Unmanned nuclear powered and nuclear weapons-capable bombers.  Just imagine handling the joystick for one of those bad boys!!!
