Simon sums up smj’s tip in a post a cluesforum.info
Let us all stop referring to this comical contraption as the “atom bomb” – or the “Fat Man”. It’s “The GIMMICK”!
Of course, the ‘success’ of the Chicago Pile experiment – we are told – led to the making of the terrifying “a-bomb”.
Or, in other words, the FIASCO at the Chicago PILE (of?…) led to the fabrication of the GIMMICK ! 😛
Oh how very witty and humorous on the part of the Nutwork’s jolly terror-clowns… :rolleyes: :angry:
