Ever wondered if you could whip up your own A-bomb? No? I haven't either, really. But I find it strangely comforting to know that I could:
In his mid-20s, working entirely as an amateur and equipped with little more than a notebook and a library card, [Dave Dobson] designed a nuclear bomb. Today his experiences in 1964—the year he was enlisted into a covert Pentagon operation known as the Nth Country Project - suddenly seem as terrifyingly relevant as ever. The question the project was designed to answer was a simple one: could a couple of non-experts, with brains but no access to classified research, crack the "nuclear secret"?
The flip side, of course, is that anyone could. Darn.
If you'd rather not go to all this trouble, you can always borrow Peter Bagge's bazooka.
