    • Skinner: They called me old-fashioned for teaching the duck-and-cover method, but who's laughing now!
      The method taught – by Bert the Turtle – to students to supposedly protect themselves in the event of a nuclear attack was immortalized in the Civil Defense short, Duck and Cover. Students were taught this method (crouching below a desk or other barrier) during the height of the Cold War, when it seemed war would break out at any time.
