Do They Think We're Fucking Stupid? Some Of Us Can Still Do Math.

The US is going to test a 700 ton bomb. Say that aloud. Seven Hundred Tons. It's expected to produce a city sized mushroom cloud. OK, 700 tons isn't quite the 12,000 ton Hiroshima bomb but in the dusty desert they'll look the same to the untrained* eye. More importantly, the cloud will look something like one produced by a 300 ton mini-nuke to even a trained eye.

A conventional bomb yield measured in tons will come from a bomb that weighs very close to the explosive yield. The 21 ton MOAB is a good example of this. To get higher explosive yield then the weight of the device you have to use a nuclear device. To further complicate matters, the heaviest payload ever carried by aircraft is about 150 tons.

Why are we testing a 700 ton bomb if we have no method of delivery? Could it be to cover up for the covert use of low yield nuclear devices? If you ask me we're a lot closer to midnight then we think.


*(Journalism majors aren't required to take much science or math for their degree. No link for this but trust me it's about 12 credits out of 120 and can be satisfied by 101 level courses. This isn't a knock against journalists but every week I read something wrong.)

What about non-aircraft delivery? What's the limit on ICBMs, or whatever else they have?

Just askin.'

What's the biggest rocket we have right now? I don't know. I do know that the Saturn V rocket could only lift 142 tons. I think that's 10 times what the space shuttle can carry.

Hill top.

We take the high-ground, and we ROOOOLLL to bomb down toward the enemy.

Naturally, we then run like _hell_.

Yes we roll it down hill. In the mean time Iran totally ignores the 700 ton bomb we're assembling from 150 ton parts above their secret bunker.

Yes, most journalists have attended schools like Emerson which don't even have a "SCIENCE" DEPARTMENT. I got my Journalism degree at Suffolk (I had a choice) because I was also able to study Environmental Biology and Astronomy. THE ONLY science course Emerson offered was "The Science of Broadcasting." Duh! I wanted a B.S. not a B.A.

Yeah, when you figure that science courses with a lab are 4 credits it comes out to half a semester, three courses, geology, biology and psychology.

If you have a teenager driving under a permit, the safety magnets at Auto Safety Magnets are such a great idea. They are easy to put on and take off and alert other drivers that there is a new driver behind the wheel.
