Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say - no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh - depended on the breaks.

Gosh all this on the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

So can you set the height above ground for detonation, let me see.

Ok, so this is a little disturbing.

Nukemap.
Is there a reason we should suddenly be worried about nukes again?

Nah, 70th anniversary of Hiroshima. It popped up on my feed. But it's quite scary as well.

Bah Humbug, seems like you can't tune detonation height for maximum effect.

We are way OT, but I also loved his performance in Patton.

And being Dr Evils twin brother here is how to bring Brisy down and minimise infer structure damage. Most caesium products would be dissipated shortly after and the city would be easy to take a week after the bombing.

Well that didn't work out as expected, my cunning plan was to detonate a smallish 50KT device over Wivenhoe Dam rendering a large proportion of drinking water unusable for a few months, causing mass panic and public fucking disorder, just one of my many services.

But the map thingy doesn't retain the epicentre, bah!

We are now being watched.
Under surveillance, that is.
Goody.

Japan has committed itself anew to seeing the world rid of nukes on this the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima, global disarmament.

Steven Pinker states he can be sure that will happen within 30 years, in The Better Angels of Our Nature.'
