the most technology retarded nation in the world!
And now they are giving nuclear reactors to Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia...so they are already setting them up for war later, they'll say they
enrich uranium in secret bases and they develop nukes, that they have the know-how...
This is just ridiculous.
Both parties are warmongerers but Obamabots claim Obama is fighting the ``good war``...Afghanistan and they will support the Iran war if there's
What a bunch of partisan BS...while people are dying by the tens of thousands. What a peace movement!

I got this file from a friend who was in the Canadian Military....
Of course everyone knows how:

knowledgeable in these matters than any layperson can ever hope to be... Should a layperson attempt to build a device such as this, chances
are s/he would probably kill his/herself not by a nuclear detonation, but rather through radiation exposure. We here at Outlaw Labs do not
recommend using this file beyond the realm of casual or academic curiosity.

I. The History of the Atomic Bomb
On August 2nd 1939, just before the beginning of World War II, Albert Einstein wrote to then President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Einstein and
several other scientists told Roosevelt of efforts in Nazi Germany to purify U-235 with which might in turn be used to build an atomic bomb. It was
shortly thereafter that the United States Government began the serious undertaking known only then as the Manhattan Project. Simply put, the
Manhattan Project was committed to expedient research and production that would produce a viable atomic bomb.
The most complicated issue to be addressed was the production of ample amounts of `enriched' uranium to sustain a chain reaction. At the time,
Uranium-235 was very hard to extract. In fact, the ratio of conversion from Uranium ore to Uranium metal is 500:1. An additional drawback is that
the 1 part of Uranium that is finally refined from the ore consists of over 99% Uranium-238, which is practically useless for an atomic bomb. To make
it even more difficult, U-235 and U-238 are precisely similar in their chemical makeup. This proved to be as much of a challenge as separating a
solution of sucrose from a solution of glucose. No ordinary chemical extraction could separate the two isotopes. Only mechanical methods could
effectively separate U-235 from U-238. Several scientists at Columbia University managed to solve this dilemma.
A massive enrichment laboratory/plant was constructed at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. H.C. Urey, along with his associates and colleagues at Columbia
University, devised a system that worked on the principle of gaseous diffusion. Following this process, Ernest O. Lawrence (inventor of the
Cyclotron) at the University of California in Berkeley implemented a process involving magnetic separation of the two isotopes.
Following the first two processes, a gas centrifuge was used to further separate the lighter U-235 from the heavier non-fissionable U-238 by
their mass. Once all of these procedures had been completed, all that needed to be done was to put to the test the entire concept behind atomic
fission. [For more information on these procedures of refining Uranium, see Section 3.]
Over the course of six years, ranging from 1939 to 1945, more than 2 billion dollars were spent on the Manhattan Project. The formulas for
refining Uranium and putting together a working bomb were created and seen to their logical ends by some of the greatest minds of our time. Among
these people who unleashed the power of the atomic bomb was J. Robert Oppenheimer.
Oppenheimer was the major force behind the Manhattan Project. He literally ran the show and saw to it that all of the great minds working on
this project made their brainstorms work. He oversaw the entire project from its conception to its completion.
Finally the day came when all at Los Alamos would find out whether or not The Gadget (code-named as such during its development) was either going
to be the colossal dud of the century or perhaps end the war. It all came down to a fateful morning of midsummer, 1945.
At 5:29:45 (Mountain War Time) on July 16th, 1945, in a white blaze that stretched from the basin of the Jemez Mountains in northern New Mexico
to the still-dark skies, The Gadget ushered in the Atomic Age. The light of the explosion then turned orange as the atomic fireball began shooting
upwards at 360 feet per second, reddening and pulsing as it cooled. The characteristic mushroom cloud of radioactive vapor materialized at 30,000
feet. Beneath the cloud, all that remained of the soil at the blast site were fragments of jade green radioactive glass. ...All of this caused by
the heat of the reaction.
The brilliant light from the detonation pierced the early morning skies with such intensity that residents from a faraway neighboring community
would swear that the sun came up twice that day. Even more astonishing is that a blind girl saw the flash 120 miles away.
Upon witnessing the explosion, reactions among the people who created it were mixed.
