    Sis, overthinking is what I do best. The answer is not underthought, that much I can guarantee.

    Nuclear explosions are impressive, and to watch them being exploded without compromising my own safety would be incredible. People suffering/dying isn't exciting, but 'in a certain light' gives me freedom to focus on whatever aspect I want.

    I would not want to see a nuclear war. But it could be exciting, in a way. And I wouldn't spend my days crying because humanity has lost its mind. I'd try to enjoy the show. If rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it.

    Don't like the concentration camp analogy, as people being tortured because of their race is not something I'd find cool in any way.

    This pretty much is my reasoning. If the world was going to come to a cataclysmic end, I couldn't think of any way I'd prefer to end it. Let's go out with an impressive fireworks display.

    Thread's a triumph of juvenile and sick ass thinking. Forum's gone down hill.

    Why's that? If the world is going to end, does it really matter how?

    Your posts aren't even worth a reply. Try harder.

    Maybe you want to think about why I'd find that funny.

    Actually the matter converts to light which then hits the air and creates the shock wave. So I am going to stick to my light bomb.

    Who doesn't know that Nagasaki or Hiroshima were an attack against a race/nation of people?

    Who doesn't know this?

    What kind of imbecile thinks nuclear war against a race or nation of people is more ethical or less racist than a concentration camp?

    Why do so many older Americans think Russians are evil? Why do so many Americans think Muslims are evil? Have you ever heard your grandparents or great-grandparents call someone a "Jap"?

    ARRGH THE STUPIDITY ON THIS FORUM IS EPIC.
