And from out of this the interweb was born. Conceived and designed to be uninterrupted and uninterruptable by malign forces (like congress, presidents, etc).

Behlen Mfg. (Columbus, NE) retrieved their building used in such a test and put it across the highway from their factory. The roof was creased, but it was otherwise sound, proving how sturdy corrugated steel really is. I think the sign said how close it was to the explosion, but they'd painted it horrid pink, so it was difficult to look in that general direction.

Hard to believe psychotic people like these conducted nuclear tests 2053 times (plus a few more I'm sure), heating the world's oceans, spewing radioactivity into every corner of the earth, wasting billions of dollars, and killing untold millions of plants animals insects and humans (to prove how tough they are with all their science, I guess). Weird logic.
Here's a video everyone should see- it shows every nuclear test, with per-country counts, 1945-1998:

You're right, Observer, science should be stifled whenever and wherever it rears it's ugly head. Your observations & condemnations are based on the very science that you condem.

As noted expert J. Frank Parnell once said: "Ever been to Utah? Ra-di-a-tion. Yes, indeed. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Half-baked goggle-box do-gooders telling everybody it's bad for you. Pernicious nonsense. Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year. They ought to have them, too. When they canceled the project it almost did me in. One day my mind was full to bursting. The next day - nothing. Swept away. But I'll show them. I had a lobotomy in the end."
