    As many will have noted, Friday gone was the 65th anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing and on that theme I was passed the following site that puts together all the nuclear explosions on the planet, commencing with the single test before the two in Japan.

    It runs for about ten minutes and is worth watching through from start to finish.

    A lot huh - 2,053 all up!

    Yeah, I know, nothing to do with travel -- that's why we have idle banter.

    Good video. Does anyone know how many nuclear explosions there have been since 1998?

    Aha! I bet you used quotation marks. They make text do a disappearing act. I discovered this strange phenomenon a month or so back. It's probably a major technological breakthrough like the discovery of penicillin and could lead to the discovery of an edit function.

    However when Flemming accidently discovered penicillin in 1929 nobody took any notice whatsoever of his findings until WW2 ... 16 more years... *sigh*. ;-)
