Breaking News: Mossad and CIA Hire Doc Brown to outwit Iranians!

Just when you thought that life could not get any crazier, The Jerusalem Post reported today (Quoting CBS):
Intelligence operatives in the US and its allied nations have sold Iran flawed technological components in an attempt to sabotage the country's nuclear enrichment program, CBS News revealed Wednesday evening.

In January 2007, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Agency, Vice-President Gholamreza Aghazadeh, said after an explosion at the Natanz nuclear facility (the first Iranian plant to attempt enrichment) that some of the equipment had been "manipulated."
US intelligence is obviously taking it's cue from the Back to the Future movie, where Doc Brown sold Libyan terrorists old pinball machine parts in exchange for enriched plutonium.

Quick Reminder:

Marty meets Doc at the parking lot of the Twin Pines Mall. Doc shows him a time machine built in a DeLorean DMC-12 sports car. The time machine portion of the car channels 1.21 gigawatts of power generated by plutonium through what the Doc calls the flux capacitor, but the car must be going 88 miles per hour to travel through time. And then:

[talking about the Time Machine...]

Marty McFly: [looks through a camcorder] This is uh... This is heavy duty, Doc. This is great. Uh... does it run, like... on regular unleaded gasoline?

Dr. Emmett Brown: Unfortunately no, it requires something with a little more kick - plutonium.

Marty McFly: Uh... plutonium? Wait. [lowers the camcorder by his side and points to the DeLorean]

Marty McFly: Are you telling me that this sucker is nuclear?

Dr. Emmett Brown: Hey, hey, hey. Keep rolling. Keep rolling, there. [Marty looks through the camcorder again]

Dr. Emmett Brown: No, no, no. This sucker's electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 jigawatts of electricity I need.

Marty McFly: Doc, you don't just walk into a store and buy plutonium. Did you rip that off?

Dr. Emmett Brown: Shhhhhh. Of course. From a group of Libyan nationalists. They wanted me to build them a bomb, so I took their plutonium and in turn, gave them a shoddy bomb-casing full of used pinball machine parts! Come on! Let's get you a radiation suit. We must prepare to reload.

And there you have it.

Wherever I am,my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

I've actually written about how my high school physics teacher was the inspiration for Doc Brown:

The Iranians and the Libyans weren't the only ones who got fooled into buying faulty high-tech military parts. In 2003, Biff Tannen attempted to alter the timeline by posing as a representative of Doc Brown, and selling the IDF a shipment of faulty flux capacitors for use in our Merkava IV tanks. The malfunctioning flux capacitors caused the tank engines to stall for up to 30.3 parsecs. This was believed to be the primary factor behind the ineffectiveness of the 134th Combat Engineering Battalion's anti-terrorist operation that year in al-Jafar. (Luckily, Marty McFly later restored the original timeline almost completely.) See here for more details.

I have a spare flex capacitor. Anyone interested?

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Jack: It's "FLUX" Capacitor - not "FLEX"...

HA! Do you see any lotus's being used? nooooooooooooooo

Ooh, 80s culture- so tempting, if not for the fact that Jameel is too awesome to tease like that.
