This is Why You Shouldn’t Check Your Camera Gear In When Flying
On July 16, 1945, the United States became the first country to successfully detonate an atomic weapon, signalling the beginning of a new era in warfare and in politics. This detonation took place in the middle of the New Mexico desert, with the bomb placed carefully atop a 100 foot tower. The bomb, nicknamed “Gadget”, had a yield equivalent to 20,000 tons of TNT. Just 24 days later, a functionally similar bomb (using Plutonium, unlike the Uranium bomb at Hiroshima) was dropped on Nagasaki.
- Still find it fascinating why the US used the 1st WMD... Japan was about to surrender anyway as Russia was on brink of invading...fadein11
- All those dead inncoents... set the trend for the next 50years of the American empire... but all empires must fall and it is falling.fadein11

- or you could go research some history in stead of asking qbn. well, no matter. hirohito had said that they refuse to surrender untill there is not one person legilgamush
- left to fight. he held that stance after hiroshima as well, aaaand then nagasaki. he for some reason did not heed the potsdam declarationgilgamush
- what an astounding evil to unleash, i get how america is hated for that, the fall of america is going to take another several centuries thoughgilgamush

- The atomic bombs that US dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had little to do with Japan. They just wanted to show the Soviets the new toy they had.Milan
Lightning strikes the ground approximately 25 million times each year in the U.S.
• Chance of being struck by lighting each year: 1 in 240,000
• Odds of being struck by lighting in your lifetime: 1 in 3000
• Lightning can have 100 million to 1 billion volts, billion watts
• A bolt of lighting can reach temperatures 53,000° F
• The suns surface temperature is 6,000° F
• Lightning does not always strike the tallest object
• Lightning can strike from the sky down or the ground up
• Lightning heats the air from 18,000° F to 60,000° F
• Lightning can strike the same place twice
• Florida receives 1.5 millions lighting strikes per year

Another good talk on the illusion of self.
Here’s another fella taking a stab at it.
- It basically explains nothing. And we still don’t know how they actually did it. LolNBQ00

Lol, this guy thinks the ancient Egyptians used water lifts to transport the stone blocks on to the pyramid.
At this point I think the aliens theory is the most plausible.
- It's 2021 and we still don't know how the pyramids were built or who built them.utopian
- They used some sort of basic concrete made from sand and stones in the vicinity. Make sense why the stones have a near perfect fit.tank02
- Some of the solid stone blocks used in the pyramids weighed up to 80 tonnes (176,370 pounds.) each.utopian
- why shouldn't his idea be plausible? he ticks a lot of boxes tho.renderedred
- yeah utopian, that's a lot of bubble wrap!_niko
The first ever airplane flight happened on December 17, 1903. It lasted 12 seconds and the new record was set later that day - 59 seconds.
The Wright brothers' fundamental breakthrough was their invention of three-axis control, which enabled the pilot to steer the aircraft effectively and to maintain its equilibrium.
