Trinity

70 tears ago yesterday, the world changed. When the world’s first atomic device was triggered in New Mexico. I note that this, the American atomic program is still the fastest to ever yield a result, even though it had to do all the theoretical work, as well. I have deep qualms about the fact that the Iranians will apparently be joining this exclusive club, so far we have kept this genie bottled up. But there is still plenty of time for J. Robert Oppenheimer’s prediction, and quote, to come true.

I am become Death,

The Destroyer of Worlds

from the Bhagavad Gita.


In a sadly related event, yesterday is also the anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, the first landing of human beings on the moon, and their safe return.

Also, in 1960,  USS George Washington a modified Skipjack-class submarine successfully test fires the first ballistic missile while submerged.


97 years ago today, Czar Nicholas II and hs family were executed by the Bolsheviks.


And today, in 1054, three Roman legates break relations between Western and Eastern Christian Churches through the act of placing an invalidly-issued Papal bull of Excommunication on the altar of Hagia Sophia during Saturday afternoon divine liturgy.

Overall, probably not our best day, as human beings.

    “the American atomic program is still the fastest to ever yield a result, even though it had to do all the theoretical work.” You’re right and not to dispute it, but well, I think now maybe the likely equally fastest to yield a result is the fundamental transformation of the U.S., …of course the theoretical work been going on a long time. Culminated with free cheese and flash mob phones.

    He might be right. But might not. There be those…I now in my several seventies often say I can’t do the keeping on keeping on. But then again I have a good day and remember…http://www.badassoftheweek.com/whittemore.html
    Never give up.
    Fight may be right outside your door one day. And three bullets could help immensely 🙂
