You really have to read this to believe it.

It is quite serious and detailed - and literally depicts the steps necessary to create a nuclear weapon in the comfort of your kitchen.

Unless it is a joke, NO, that should not be freely available for public veiwing.

And especially here on ats. Do you know this site has a policy on illegal activities. And even if making a nuke isn't illegal, that article provides information on how to steal uranium. I just don't think this should be out on the net.

Sure, you could argue that this information is available anyway, and yes, it is, but generally not in complete, unabridged form.

The article says that governments should not hoard nuclear weapons. Well, I can tell you that I'd prefer the U.S. govt. or even the Brazilian govt. to have these nukes, compared to Billy down the street. Unless this article is a joke, it shoudlnt be posted. The details of atomic and nuclear weapons are classified for a good reason.

p.s. dont you need tritium for the fusion stage?

is this the next wave nukes ??? well boys and girls i certainly hope youve been good because uncle leo has been in the kitchen cooking up something just for you

Didn't the Iranians say that they've learned most of what they know about Nuclear Tech on the Internet? I thought I read that somewhere......

In either case, why would anyone put this on the web...and how did they obtain the information?!

I like the part where the article suggested you could add a small little sticker to your front door "This Home Protected by H-Bomb"

The article goes on to say how fast the crime rate will go down in your neighborhood and you will have extra leverage with any neighborhood disputes.

What I thought was outrageous was implying you could raise funds for your home by selling pirated Girl Scout cookies. I mean that is simply not ethical in my opinion.

One wonders... I like freedom of expression... I also believe in the greater good. I think of myself a sort of Libertarian-Socialist. Don't ask, it's weird and Canadian. I think I find that "recipe" link rather not to my liking. However true it may be or not?

Hmmm, ethics. I am fortunate not to have that coming from my country. I'm not sure whether I'd report that or not... I'd darn sure consider it though. It is afterall more or less common knowledge. But still... promoting "that" - go figure. Spoof or not.

One may have to one day "embrace the horror". Most folks nowadays don't fear "the bomb" like us 1950's duck and cover kids. Ask an old person, they'll tell you. Lots of children went to sleep and dreamt nightmares of those "educational" civil defense reels we were shown in school right after we made asbestos fiber and water sculptures in Art. No air raid warning tests anymore either. No way to put the genie back in the bottle... so everybody has nukes. No, that won't last long...

Hopeful and fingers-crossed,

Victor K.

WTF?!?!?!?!?! iam sure they are just kidding around cuz i hardly think a A bomb is that easy to make

i'm sure their's more to making a funtional bomb than this guy is telling besides that if this site had any merit it would have been closed down by now but you've got to admit it hilarious

In these days of rising inflation, increasing unemployment, and an uncertain economic outlook, few businesses make as much sense as weapons production. If your career forecast is cloudy, bomb sales may be the only sure way to avoid the humiliation of receiving welfare, or unemployment. Regardless of your present income level, a home H-bomb business can be an invaluable income supplement, and certainly a profitable alternative to selling Tupperware or pirated Girl Scout cookies

Unfortunately for the family bomb business, big government has already cornered a large part of the world market. But this does not mean that there is a shortage of potential customers. The raid on Entebee was the Waterloo of hijacking, and many nationalist groups are now on the alert for new means to get their message across. They'd jump at the chance to get hold of an H-bomb. Emerging nations which can't ante up enough rice or sugar to buy themselves a reactor from G.E. or Westinghouse are also shopping around

I thought it was a humorous yet informational...uhmm...article.

A nuclear bomb is easy to manufacture but enriching it is the biggest problem.

The article explained how to make the gun-type nuclear bomb (Fatman) while there is also the Implosion type (Little boy) and everything detailed in that article is true as far as physics go as far as I can tell (I am not a chemist but it most definitly sounds plausible).

I think we can take comfort in the fact that the enrichment part of this article was simply not correct, if the Iranian scientist have problems with this then why would a single Australian guy be able to figure it out by him self?

posted on May, 22 2006 @ 06:41 AM
Groundie, you've got the devices mixed up. Fatman was the implosion, while Little Boy used a 'gun' arrangement.


Yes, surely that article could not be totally correct. But the thing is, it shows you where to go and get the uranium. Now unless that is made up or incorrect, I don't think that should be out there. But yeah, it is probably just all poppycock.

Not really that shocking, anyone who's done A-level physics could have told you most of that, a little further reasearch and bob's your uncle, all you need to know. Putting it into practice howver, thats another story and nigh on impossible for anyone to do in the comfort of their kitchen.

Shouldn't someone be reporting this to the FBI or something? I mean, this is not your Julia Child kitchen experience. This is like the Frugal Gourmet with one too many cast-iron skillets to the head. Also, I mean, should we really be even going on in depth here on this, because it is kind of like us working out seriously illegal activities. Wouldn't shine good on ATS if it's found here first, either.

I think everybody should relax.

Fissile materials are extremely difficult if not impossible to steal. There have been a couple of incidents when this did happen, and among those one was attributed to the Israelis. However, since then - everything's changed.

If you read the "paper", you'll certainly detect a healthy dose of humor. That's what makes it a fun read -- part-truth, part mockery.

I doubt thatn anyone would survive and attempt to produce a large amount of uranium hexafluoride and then liquify it using a "bicycle pump". Seriously.

posted on May, 22 2006 @ 10:06 AM
"Humour" in the address lead anyone to suspect something about the article?

posted on May, 22 2006 @ 11:12 AM
First off ingredients like lithium..... among'st other thing are missing and if it were as easy as what he says it is to enrich weapons grade Uranium I am sure every nation seeking the bomb (alot) would have done this already.

I think the article is a joke personally and should not be attempted at home.

posted on May, 22 2006 @ 12:02 PM
I can't imagine that nuke tech is illegal to put on the internet, short of classified information. I also can't imagine that anyone is actually going to successfully build a nuclear weapon in their kitchen. The iranians seem to want one, but they've got entire facilities throughout the country and teams of scientists workign on it, not to mention help from the russians.

To say the least, no one here should try this out, nuclear materials are, um.....dangerous.

I also recall an experiment performed by some university staff where they claimed it was possible to produce an accurate mock up of a functioning nuclear device based purely off information that was freely available in publications.

They did so, and the FBI promptly confiscated the model - I forget the timeframe but I think it was many years ago.

I'm afraid that the top is well and truly off the bottle that has held the Nuclear Genie mostly intact for 60 years.

I do find it interesting to note how long it has taken the "problem children" to develop such weapons having been denied them by the West. Sort of a technology Barometer if you will.

The article mixes what appears to be some dangerous and potentially insightful information with plenty of black humour - it still made my jaw drop when I read it.

My favorite part:

First transform the gas into a liquid by subjecting it to pressure. You can use a bicycle pump for this. Then make a simple home centrifuge. Fill a standard-size bucket one-quarter full of liquid uranium hexafluoride. Attach a six-foot rope to the bucket handle. Now swing the rope (and attached bucket) around your head as fast as possible. Keep this up for about 45 minutes. Slow down gradually, and very gently put the bucket on the floor. The U-235, which is lighter, will have risen to the top, where it can be skimmed off like cream. Repeat this step until you have the required 10 pounds of uranium. (Safety note: Don't put all your enriched uranium hexafluoride in one bucket. Use at least two or three buckets and keep them in separate corners of the room. This will prevent the premature build-up of a critical mass.)

My emphasis.

That's priceless.

This is pretty funny too -

The best way to avoid inhaling plutonium is to hold your breath while handling it. If this is too difficult, wear a mask. To avoid ingesting plutonium orally follow this simple rule: never make an A-bomb on an empty stomach.

This is hilarious.

if you plan to make more than one bomb it might be wise to wear gloves and a lead apron, the kind you can buy in dental supply stores.

What about air fed hoods or breathing apparatus? Maybe you don't need them.

And this just got me wetting myself.

If you find yourself dozing off while you're working, or if you begin to glow in the dark, it might be wise to take a blood count. Prick your finger with a sterile pin, place a drop of blood on a microscope slide, cover it with a cover slip, and examine under a microscope.

This cannot be taken seriously. Come on people, take a look at it again. See the humor in it.

This is quite possibly one of the funniest things I have ever read in my entire life. So funny I've printed out a few copies, which will be distributed amongst the physics and astronomy department soon.
