    indeed and it is why scar_symmetry posted them, it was not to glorify some quite evil weapon of mas-turbation (sorry i could not resist to crack this one!!)

    if you want to see some truly interesting nuclear explosion shots google "trinity nuclear explosion". trinity was the 1st experimental nuclear bomb, tested in near Los Alamos in NM, USA. Considering those pictures are 50 years old their are very impressive.

    I highly recommend watching the whole "Trinity And Beyond" movie. Completely awe inspiring footage if a little scary. :ugh:



    Plus William Shatner narrates it. :lol: :agreed::yesway:

    pretty cool video but i think a montage. You would not have enough energy to detonate a nuclear explosion just from the impact of a "regular" shell on the ground.

    the other aspect is that you need a very precise timing instrument within bomb to make sure that "everything" within is compressed at the same time, unlike in a canon shell...

    i love this video : everything is shredded to pieces except the camera which is filming everything!!! Pure WIN!!! :hbang::shred:

    I like how in the 60's everyone was like "Fuck you, oceanic wildlife. Suck on some nukes."

    I wonder what kind of wierd shit (if any) is growing inside the crater lake from the Tsar Bomba. And I wonder if anyone is like "hey there's a goddamn irradiated river of doom flowing out of that nuke crater."

    I need to share something with you.

    A 22 year-old cousin of mine asked me the other day: "the cold war was waged by whom again?" :ugh:

    and you should have told him : by the north pole Vs the south pole, that's why it was named "the cold war"

    Not real but totally my new background.

    I'm thinking about making a myspace layout based on this for my band.
    Not too sure if the band-mates would be too happy about me making a myspace yet though.
    We wanna be 110% ready to play shows and have recorded tracks before we make it, to just kinda shit on every band here with one swift blow.

    Not every band on SS :lol:
    I'd get pwnstomped in a heartbeat by Unearth, Periphery, Whitechapel, Necrophagist, Terrorhorse, and Traces all at the same time!

    I meant every band in my area
    :)

    I fail. :(

    You, on the other hand, win, for getting a band up and running. My project-of-sorts in still on the runway. :metal:
