    You'd know about having a "feeble mind"

    Wrong.

    Beside the point: I wasn't posting to dogs...

    Would that "some other country" be China, perhaps, the world's largest country?

    Nazi's were CERTAINLY working on the bomb. They were completely fucked over in a clandestine raid on their heavy water production and the project was scraped.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_heavy_water_sabotage

    The worst testing done was by the U.S and USSR in the atmosphere, denied to this day, these tests were LARGELY responsible for the initial creation of the hole in the ozone layer. These tests may have doomed us. The tzar bomba was actually a lot more safe than the atmosphere tests, though I understand it pretty much smashed a hellova lot of windows in Finland...amazing.

    2000 tons of uranium in one bomb, Dwayne? I sure would like to see some sort of reference to that, if you could find one. I would like to see you come up with a reference for the scientist Oslo, who just happens to have the same surname (or given name, you didn't make that clear) as the capital of Norway. As for delivery, how were they going to manage that? Short of loading it on a ship and sailing it across to Britain/US/wherever/to set it off? The British were straining the limits of 1940's aircraft technology getting an Avro Lancaster to fly an 11-ton bomb to Germany--even these days, we don't have the capability of carrying 2000 tons anywhere by air, unless the military have some phenomenal machine I haven't heard of yet.

    What I read was that a German physicist designed ( as in, not made ) a device which needed 40,000 pounds of natural Uranium in order to develop a runaway chain reaction. It is an ongoing matter of controversy whether the physicist ignorantly thought that a device needed that much Uranium or was knowingly misdirecting the Nazi war effort.

    What I read was that the Nazis were discouraged after digesting the report and did not actually construct, or, try to construct, the device.

    My guess is that the Nazis never actually tried to build the 40,000 pound device.

    You won't get a reference from Dwayne.
    All of his "facts" are inventions of his own manufacture, fuelled by delusion.
