Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: 6th August 1945:The Day Civilisation Died ...

6th August 1945:The Day Civilisation Died ...



Surely, the horrors of the Japanese city of Hiroshima remain proof positive that civilisation, as our world had come to know it, died an absolutely indescribable death on a sunny August day, some 68 years ago.

So fuck you,
"Fat Man." And fuck your bastard "Little Boy," too.



A mere four days after the horror of Hiroshima, the fate of a second city (Nagasaki), and it's entire civilian population, served to further prove our point.



So, today we unapologeticly post pictures of some shocking scenes, lest the world should ever forget.



And to think that even as we type there's a sizable number of despicable sub-humans amongst us, who still insist on shrieking in sicko-unison : "Nuke 'em!"



So, for all those who don't (or won't) remember, as well as any who never even knew,
here's a little something from the BBC.

Surely, as brother and sister citizens of the 21st century we should all learn, inwardly digest and remember.

And Mrs Enola Gay's dear little boy had no regrets at all about it:

I wonder where he is now.Quite possibly not where he believed he would end up. I hope.

Half a century later, people in Japan were still suffering and dying as a direct result of that awful day.

``And to think that even as we type there's a sizable number of despicable sub-humans amongst us, who still insist on shrieking in sicko-unison : "Nuke 'em!"''

The United States Department of Defense is very interested in developing machines that exhibit general intelligence and verge on self-awareness and semantic understanding.

When this comes to fruition, Hiroshima and Nagasaki will seem small.

Or to put it more concisely:

"Los geht's! Wir greifen an!"

"US über alles"? More like "AI über alles".

Wir stellen den menschlichen Löwen
Zum letzten entscheidenden Schlag
Wir halten Gericht!
Ein Weltreich zerbricht!
Das wird unser stolzester Tag!

German quoting anonymous, you're obviously a sociopath. You should seek help.

A sociopath exhibits "glibness and superficial charm" as well as "poor behavioral controls/impulsive nature". I am neither charismatic nor impulsive. Please clarify.
