    If you’re talking about Fat Man and Little boy those were 15 and 21 kt respectively.

    This is 50,000.

    Slight difference.

    The bomb was so big, it couldn’t even fit in their largest bomber, it was strapped to the outside and slowed with a parachute so that the plane could get the fuck outta there. Also, it still set off Richter scales on the third shockwave around the world.

    No matter how big the bomb is, it won’t change the fact that kids picked on you when you were little and you still live in that stage of your life.

    I don’t get it. Massive destruction is compensating? I could agree about Texans with hand guns but making bombs that could level a country is more about domination. They should have dropped one of these on Iraq and moved on.
    Commence booing…

    This is what started Global Warming in the Arctic. True Story. If only Al Gore had been as super as he is today, we might’ve been able to stop it.
