Yea, those atomic bombs are pretty amazing. We are learing about those in History class right now. When they tested the first bomb (made of Plutonium) scientist observing 7 miles away were knocked over. Windows from 125 miles away were shattered. Those things are simply amazing. Real intersting stuff.

Yeah, and to think that the first time they tested a nuke, they weren't even sure that it wouldn't cause a chain-reaction that would burn the entire Earth'* atmosphere off...

Interesting anecdote...
Several tests after the first bomb, one of the scientists who helped to develop it was in a bunker where they were preparing for a test. He was jonesing for a smoke, but had left his matches at his house. Not finding anyone with a match, he was in despair. At that point he found a small parabolic reflector discarded from some peice of photographid equipment.
Quickly fashioning a piece of wire into a holder to hold the cigarette at the focal point of the reflector, he set the reflector and cigarette in the slit window of the bunker.
A few minutes later, H*ll came to earth, the heavens roared, and the scientist reached out, plucked his now-lit cigarette from it'* perch, and took a drag.

Can you imagine the arrogance neccessary to think of lighting a cigarette with a nuclear bomb?
