We all know that having a safe password is crucial in today's online world.  But did you know that for 20 years the password for U.S. nuclear missiles was 00000000?  According to Bruce Blair, Air Force launch officer in the 1970s, every nuclear missile silo in the United States used this password in order to launch nuclear missiles.  Also, we all know that you shouldn't leave your passwords lying around, especially next to your computer.  Sadly, not only was the password 8 zeros but the password was written on a piece of paper posted in the missile silos so nobody would forget!
