Ya know, I've been in North Korea(like 100 ft, at least).....It was snowing too hard to tell if we were bein' irradiated. I guess they had the good sense to stay inside in a blizzard.

you forget, reilly, that this wasn't actually a bomb, it was an earthquake. The obama administration just used it as an excuse to enter a war we never should have been in.

All Bill Clintons fault, he cut the deals, he talked to them, he should have dropped bombs on them.

Why does North Korea not just market a dirty bomb?

I am sure the islamos would pay good money.

When I was at Caltech I designed this experiment to model a underground Nuclear Blast. Started with a 12" cube of limestone and milled out a 20cm circular cavity right in the middle. Placed High Explosive charge right in the middle of the cavity. Had strain gages on the block and a high speed data logger.

God I miss the good old days.

Just heard on the news that N Korea has declared it's armistice with S Korea, in effect since 1953, to be "over."

So, Mr. Biden said President Obama would be tested early...

Does rescinding their agreement from 1953, which ended the Korean War, re-open hostilities?

It's a good thing we have he U.N.......

North Korea fired seven ballistic missiles off its eastern coast Saturday, South Korea said, a violation of U.N. resolutions and an apparent message of defiance to the United States on its Independence Day.

I call BS on labrat's link results--according to it, the TSAR Bomba would only take out the SF Peninsula...


Watch the video of its release and judge for yourself the radiation effects.

I'll bet it went off by mistake. Hopefully it killed a bunch of their "scientists".

Today in 2005, North Korea announced it had a nuclear weapon, though what it actually had was an old 1970s microwave oven and some tin foil.

Fletch, tin foil will be quite handy if building a Faraday Cage to protect all your electronic gizmos when the crazy N Koreans launch one of their new toys towards LA.
