When America, China, Great Britain, or some gay third world country decides to drop an A-bomb or H-bomb on Canada and/or Israel, resulting in some other big country and/or third world country going PMS-style and reducing the whole world to ashes, therefore leaving the sole survivors with testicular cancer.
Dude, I heard they found big weapons in the Middle East.

Well if it comes down to mutually assured destruction, I'd rather die than get that cancer crap.

Hell yeah!

A concept that arose out of the Cold War between the US and USSR. The idea was that both sides had enough fire power and the technology to monitor and deliver it that if either side made a move, the end result would be the destruction of both sides. Sometimes shortened to MAD (which is what it was).

term used during the cold war. was used to describe the effect of one party making use of nuclear weapons, which would cause a retaliatory attack from the victim. eventually, both partys, the attacker and victim, would be completly destroyed by the nuclear weapons and no one would win. MAD was on of the main things keeping russia from attacking the US with nukes.

The outrightly suicidal strategy of nations protecting themselves from nuclear (or, in more recent days, chemical or biological) attack by preparing enough weapons to reduce the attacking country to rubble even as they are themselves wiped out.

Basically, if you're going to be screwed over, make sure the rest of the world is, too.
During the Cold War, the US and the USSR built massive stockpiles of nuclear weapons while following a strategy of mutually assured destruction

A situation in which two states have enough weapons (typically nuclear) to ensure that should one launch an attack the other would be able to respond in a strong enough way to destroy the attacker. Both would be destroyed.

This situation is supposed to prevent either side from launching such an attack.

The Cold War between the USA and the USSR in the 20th Century is an example of such a situation.
With our stockpiles of nukes we have mutually assured destruction in the case of a launch.

The result of two or more gay guys going, without proper preparation, at each other's ass.
Doctor, looking at two guys on stretchers, naked asses up. Their buttholes are bleeding. "Lubes, guys," he says. "Otherwise you're going to have a bad time. It's mutually assured destruction."
