Back in the USSR

A cold war series of jokes went like this:

Soviet microchips - largest in the world!

Soviet wristwatches - fastest in the world!

Soviet wheat - rarest in the world!

In a trope on that riff, USA has announced the largest computer in the world.  And for what have our tax dollars been directed.

Sequoia will be used to carry out simulations to help extend the life of aging nuclear weapons, avoiding the need for real-world underground tests.

Well, there.
