* It has been noticed that if you compared the cool and methodical Ripper with the bombastic Turgidson without understanding the context, you might think Ripper was the sane one and Turgidson the crazy guy, but in reality Ripper is dangerously paranoid and Turgidson is usually correct about his accusations and is working with the President to try and resolve the situation. Given that Ripper is implied to suffer from [[TheLoinsSleepTonight male performance issues]] and repressed sexuality, while Turgidson is shown to be fooling around with his secretary right up to shortly before he gets called in to deal with the crisis, it's possible that Turgidson is mentally healthy and not trying to start a nuclear war simply ''because'' he isn't holding anything in or questioning his manhood.

*** The base is supposed to be in the U.K., which would make it about 7:00 AM. Keep in mind the latitude will affect how light or dark it is outside as well.

* An intentional case: with 93 years before the world is inhabitable once more, and little to no time to prepare the settlement of the mines, it's unlikely that either side would be able to secure safe foodstores and unirradiated humans with enough varied genetic stock for humanity to ultimately survive. While it's implied Strangelove has been planning elements of this, he's he has no clear ties to Ripper, and Kissov's delayed announcement of the doomsday device enrages Strangelove. It's likely he's got some of the groundwork set up, but not enough.

** Further, if that's all he drinks, he's probably blind drunk through the entire course of the movie.

*** Stockings can also be used to filter air or water at need. As far as barter, if they're far enough out in the sticks or things have been so wrecked as to make money useless (altogether likely) being able to offer valuable goods in exchange for aid is a very good position to be in.



** Air Police are precisely that: a police force, lightly-equipped. They're very good at what they do but against dedicated infantry they're fighting out of their weight.



** It's 3 am in Washington when the movie starts, but we don't know where the AF base is supposed to be.

** Bat Guano is [[LawfulStupid laughably stupid]], but his own imbecility about everything being related to "preversion" makes him right in a meta-sense, Kubrick made a movie where war --and almost everything else-- is related to sex, as described in main under FreudWasRight.

* Vodka is already grain alcohol and water. Essentially Ripper's solution to avoiding Commie fluids is to make his own.
