I told my friends I could teach them to be funny, but they all just laughed at me.

this one happens to use some kind of slurry explosive that settles so it keeps it spinning like a cement truck. Ever since I read about the nuclear bomb that used a traditional fuse (like bugs bunny), nothing in james bond seems unrealistic to me. So a mad man used a electromechanical timer (made by a evil swiss watch maker) and unstable slurry explosive. OK, at least its not a goverment funded project that put fireworks fuse inside of a atom bomb!

The texture on that aluminum base plate is similar to the picture someone had here of some radio equipment too lol

@3:56 - "It is virtually impossible for an accident to result in a nuclear detonation."

Ohhh the irony of that line.

The runaway bomb with a 7-segment red LED display ticking away the seconds, must be one of Hollywood’s most overused cliches.
So much so, that the other day the living room’s TV was showing a movie that nobody was really watching. The bomb scene came up. My 3-year old granddaughter, who was playing in the couch with her dolls, glanced at the screen and yelled at the top of her little lungs: “THE RED WIRE! CUT THE RED WIRE!!”
 :) :)

It is virtually impossible for an accident to result in a nuclear detonation, just unplug it!

The Leslie Nilsen - OJ Simpson duo were masters of the deadpan comedy.
