This is a much better fate than what the residents of Nanking endured at the hands of the Japanese. Rape, torture, cutting pregnant women open, murdering children, burying people alive, burning people alive.

Yeah, that was a terrible incident with things we shouldn't have been toying with. A few good things came from all those people dying, if you will to have an optimistic view on things.

1. We learned that nukes aren't toys (Although we REALLY should have known this BEFOREHAND).
2. "Operation Downfall", the planned invasion of Japan would have been a worse alternative.

i think wat happened is that since lets say... turn on a fire in the ground, itll leave a burn mark around , but somehow with the nuke it made it from the inside

The Meaning of life is that there is no meaning...

I don't know if it's true what happened there but that kinda thing was mentioned in the short story "There Will Come Soft Rains" by Ray Bradbury.It said,


"Ten-fifteen. The garden sprinklers whirled up in golden founts, filling the soft morning air with scatterings of brightness. The water pelted windowpanes, running down the charred west side where the house had been burned evenly free of its white paint. The entire west face of the house was black, save for five places. Here the silhouette in paint of a man mowing a lawn. Here, as in a photograph, a woman bent to pick flowers. Still farther over, their images burned on wood in one titantic instant, a small boy, hands flung into the air; higher up, the image of thrown ball, and opposite him a girl, hand raised to catch a ball which never came down.
    The five spots of paint- the man, the woman, the children, the ball- remained. The rest was a thin charcoaled layer." - There Will Come Soft Rains by Ray Bradbury.

I've seen a few documentaries about the bomb and they usually show the shadows. Kind of creepy, kind of sad but, I'd like to go to Japan one day and see them myself. A moment frozen in time forever. It was a bloody war with a blazing finally. I wonder if Usama has ever seen these shadows?

Jesse, I read that story in school.  Freaked me out then, still does a bit.  Of course (dating myself here) when I was in school we all expected someone to push the button any minute.  I used to have nightmares about nuclear war.  Once, when I was a teenager, I was playing hide-and-seek in the dark with my younger relatives and ran into a tree limb.  It knocked me out and the last thing I thought, seeing a blinding flash of light, was that the war had begun. dontgetit.gif

Anyhow, he told us a story once during our history lesson. He said he had visited the city of Hiroshima (or what was Hiroshima?) and that the shadows of the people remained as they were at the very moment the bomb hit. The shadows still existed, and hadnt moved.

Why would the shadows have moved?  How could they have moved?

Are they actually shadows or just an imprint/parts where the blast didnt touch/etc?

Does any one here remember the name of that "Duck and cover" turtle? They used to show us that when I was in elementary school. That was as late as the early 1980's!

To those of you that do remember it, I'm sorry. You'll be singing that song for the rest of the day now, huh?
