Video Shows Location/Country Responsible For All Nuclear Explosions From 1948-1998

July 23, 2010


This is a video documenting the location and country responsible for all 2,053 known nuclear explosions between 1945-1998. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? If you answered, "Jesus, how are we all not dead?" you are! You know the Ruskies were experimenting with blowing up the earth's core and destroying the planet, right? Because I didn't just make that up. It came to me in a dream. The same one where I had sex with a lava monster!

Although the map and graphics are almost comically low-res, the minimalist presentation is so effective you can't look away. Every explosion produces a musical chime, and every time a new nation goes nuclear, it gets a different note. We were particularly struck by the Cold War musical duel between the U.S. and U.S.S.R., as each responds to the other's nuclear testing, resulting in a darkly impressive light show on the map.

Neat idea. So neat I've been inspired to make a world map with the chronology of my sexual experiences from 1995-2010. Hold on to your hats, folks, you're about to see some real fireworks! Idaho, 2004: looked at another man's wiener while peeing.

Hit it for the long-ass video (and a sped-up Youtube version), but feel free to skip around.
