That’s kind of a hard title to write.  Ever seen the documentary White Light/Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? It’s not an easy documentary to watch; it gives a face to the receivers of the Fat Man and Little Boy inventions.

A user named RestrictedData on YouTube has uploaded this video — which is pretty much the whole shebang, from rolling Fat Man out of the garage to the bomb detonating on Nagasaki, Japan.  It’s eleven minutes, but it’s historically awesome, and awesome not in the thumbs up way but awesome in the way that it was meant — it will fill you with awe to see that thing detonate.  It’s frightening:

Crazy. The unbelievable power of those things; I find it amazing that we can’t out that kind of energy towards free energy for everyone.  Can you imagine if we had small dishwasher-sized devices in our homes that delivered all of the power needed for heat and electricity?  Nah, instead we have weapons that can erase all life in a 5-mile radius and ruin the next two or three thousand years for the next 5-10 miles.  That’s so much better.
