All right, it's confirmed. A backwarded communist country named North Korea and led by an alien (named Kim Jong-Il) succeeded into testing a first nuclear weapon. Do you want to know why the international community knows it? It's because some American scientists detected radioactive particles in the atmosphere over the city of P'unggye.
The scientific analysis also revealed that the explosion was inferior to one kiloton, which is the equivalent of 200 tons of TNT. I don't have a great idea how dangerous 200 tons of TNT can be. Maybe I should try to find a pirate movie that shows it! Ok, this was a joke, mind you. I recently saw a graphic on the news. This graphic shows you how big the explosion was.
By the way, rumour has it that Communist Alien Code-named Kim wants to test a second nuclear bomb according to this article from the Globe and Mail. Comrade Kim, you'll be fired (in the very broad sense of the word). All right, enough remarks for today. Now I'll go back to my homeworks.
