adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...

                                                  Holy Mother Of #$(#$#$*#$ AND $#*#*&$*#&**&#@(!!!!!

Psychological effects?! I am ready to surrender Right Now! All of Florida just did!!
Its got to be dropped from a C-130?!??!?!?!?!?!??!! WTF *#$**(#&@(*#&$!!!!!!!! What it wont fit in a B-1?!? B-52?!?

And I like how they said that the Earthquake people said it caused no seismic activity. Wouldn't that suck.

HEADLINES: A TEST WITH A NEW BOMB CAUSED A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE AND FLORIDA SUNK INTO THE OCEAN TODAY...........................

I guess they are getting ready for China in case they decide to invade all of Asia, middle east, and Europe. With 200 million troops they'd just have to leave a million behind in each country for security. ohmy.gif

                                                  the test went as planned.  i read an interesting note on the bomb, its a 10.5 megaton bomb- the a-bomb we dropped on Hiroshima was a 15 megaton bomb.  that is one mean ass bomb.

                                                  Satire:

Clinton- Lets send a bunch of black clad Ninja's in there, oh that will scare em all to bloody hell!

Bush- (laughing at Clinton's idea) Ok boys, we are gonna build this huge bomb, and call it the MOFOoab(MOAB for the media). Then before we go to war with the next terrorist state, we'll test it in Florida and make sure the cloud goes up so high they can see it half way across the world. Sorta like them Roadrunner cartoons.

General- Ok boss, how big should we build this thing?

Bush- Whats the biggest plane we got can drop that MOFO-oab?

General- C-130

Bush-  Aight, Lets do this Yo!

General- Word!!!

(Rest of the staff) WHAZZZZZAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                  supposedly, they taped the test and sent a copy of it to Iraq.  they want to use it to scare troops into surrendering.  

so your satire has some truth to it Jojo smile.gif

                                                  NOthing like hearing a loud boom in the middle of going to work. It was loud. I live 5 min from Eglin AFB. But we had no earthquake heheh.
I didn't see the plume of smoke though,  I have been trapped inside work all day long.
Not too mention the site was about 20 min away from where I live.

However, on Sunday we had a plane crash into 2 houses in  Valparaiso enroute from New MExico, there was an article about it. I think it was in CNN as well. Eglin is all about being in the news lately.

                                                  I lived in Titusville for a year, is that near there T?

Anyways I LOVE IT:


We test the MOFOoab..........Then say well, we MIGHT extend the deadline a LITTLE BIT..........for Iraq...........AND!!!!!!! We dont need no stinking allies like we dont need no badges to take you out and go to war!!!!!!!!!!

LOL and I love that those troops tried to surrender before the war starts.......Hey I am not against Iraq. I am sure they are good people. But I am against Iraq at the same time cuz if you take a country like a human, the brain is Saddam and needs to be killed or removed at the least.

   Barry Maguire's 'Eve of Destruction' song comes to mind at the momment.

                                                   The bomb at hiroshima was 5 Kilotons of TNT

1000 kilotons = 1 megaton

So where did u come up with 15 megatons!!??!

                                                  According to Google - The Hiroshima bomb was somewhere between 10-20kilotons, and the bomb mentioned in the article is 18,000pounds, which is about 8-10 tons.

The new bomb is over a thousand times less powerful than the Hiroshima bomb, but still packs one hell of a punch.

                                                  i meant KILOTONS.  sorry, sometimes my memory fails me when i read these articles.  also, we don't use the metric system of measurement often in the USA and those prefixes all blend together in my mind smile.gif

it was a 10.5 kiloton blast- which is only slightly smaller than the Hiroshima bomb.  

the destructiveness is not based on the weight of the bomb, Saruman,but rather the amount of TNT that the explosion equals.  

thanks for waking me up, Dowdy.  a 10.5 megaton blast is like one of those huge Russian hydrogen combo bombs.  there would be no Florida panhandle if they dropped a bomb like that wink.gif

                                                  The biggest bomb the russians detonated was a high altitude 52 megaton airburst - more or less to demonstrate that they could build a bomb that big, and they weren't scared to let it off.

The power of a nuke also has to do with the speed at which it detonates - they are much more efficient, exploding from what boils down to a single geometric point in space. to use your example - the hiroshima bomb was equivalent to approximately 15 thousand tons of TNT. while it occupied a single bomb, you'd need many a truck to haul that amount of TNT around, and if you piled it all together, it would not produce the same kind of destructive force that the atom bomb did, purely because it would take longer to detonate, and its explosive impulse would be much more dispersed, erupting from a gigantic mountain of explosives, and not a single point.  This is why when ammunition factories explode, they do a lot of damage but they tend not to wipe out the surrounding area.

it would still be a f*****g big explosion though, no doubt about that.

                                                  Here's a link to a site that shows a video of the bomb drop and explosion;

                                                  omg, i hate realplayer.  why is it that they update that stupid thing every week and try to con you into downloading a newer version?  my version is now out of date and they want me to download another one?  i refuse.  it took me a week to figure out how to keep the last version from doing things i didnt want it to do.   can you believe the version i downloaded 3 months ago doesnt have the capability to play this clip?  hmm.  

anything that attempts to slip by little features when you set it up on your computer isnt worth using at all.  i swear, just installing realplayer is a pain, you have to seek and destroy all those useless features they try to bury away from your view.  


that being said, does anyone have a vid of this in a 'real' format?   laugh.gif
