Well, if the infinite parallel universes theory is anything to go by.. We pruned ourselves out of a large probability space thing, ya know.

Actually thats a bit scary. I've only got this far 'cos I'm not aware of all the parallel universes I died in.

Yeesh. What was in my chilli sauce today?

@Steelgrid a radiation free bomb would be VERY boring ! no light, heat, gamma, beta, alpha rays only the blast wave may be power full but boring
and @CrakrJak XD

I think we should dump the bombs and guns and go back to swords and shields. >_>

threatened them with court marshal if they turned to look at the explosion,

One of the WORST things you can do if there happens to be a nuclear explosion is to LOOK AT IT... The flash of light would burn out your retinas, even if you did happen to survive the massive shock wave, heat, and radiation that followed.

I'm prepped, man. I'm ready for any survival situation. Well, not READY, since you can never be completely ready, but I've prepared to the maximum possible extent for just about anything.

And I'm gonna watch it all go down with REM playing in the background, lol.

@Steelgrid The answer to your question is longer than the age of the universe. The amounts collected are so tiny that to get enough to make even a small bomb would be far too long to be viable. And why is a radiation-free nuke worse?

@steelgrid, i think i saw that video. isnt it one with a hydrogen bomb? i rmeember the soldiers saying that after it exploded they looked at it or somehting and relaxed and a few minutes later they just hear a large BOOM and poo themselves because they completly forgot sound takes some time to travel.

Didn't think you could ever accidentally detonate a nuke, since you need a series of events to happen in a precise order. Maybe not though.

"Americans can be scary."

Actually the author states that these are just American examples. There have been far worse from other countries. But one of the most attrocious stories I remember, and there is actual video, is during the testing phase of an American nuke, we actually wheeled a platoon on soldiers into the desert, told them to turn their back and sit down, threatened them with court marshal if they turned to look at the explosion, then set off the nuke to see the effects at 10 miles away on these soldiers.

I am really not looking foward to any new weapon. I am sure uve all heard about the large hadron colider. it has been repeated that they are NOT using this as a weapon. Yet guess what, these non-nice individuals are now collecting antimatter with this thing. It is so volotile it has to be kept in a vacuum in a magnetic chamber so it doesnt touch any matter otherwise it explodes. How soon till we see the first radiation free nuke made from antim

Nuclear weapons are not as unstable as conventional explosives.. so I'm not really sure how accurate the first one is with that statement about the fission core being inside.

Sucks for the rest, though.

The incidents are all from quite some time ago. Is that because people have learned and mistakes like these no longer happen? Or is it because people have learned to cover them up better?

Gleeballs: Na, They needed the plutonium to produce 1.21 Gigawatts.

that's why aliens are trying to disable our nuclear weapons.
