It’s how we got the Virgin Islands.” “Actually, the United States bought the Virgin Islands from Denmark.”
  • “Are you finished?” “Yes.” “Good, because the B-52 was in the middle of-” “The Bermuda triangle. Is this about the Bermuda triangle? Because that’s my fourth biggest fear.” “It’s about the B-52’s payload. Namely, a Mark -8 hydrogen bomb. Which ISIS is going to recover. And then give to the US government in exchange for a huge reward.”
