Very cool video ! :D

PS : 2:43 is a true math fail! 100 tons = 100.000 KG, no more no less. 90.700 KG is 90.7 tons. It's not that hard you just add zeros to the number.

Another fun fact about the Tzar bomba:
It was scaled down from 100 million tons to minimize the fallout.

#5 See the Wikipedia page for "Ton." The imperial system never seizes to amaze me.

#5 You're confusing a ton with a tonne (called a "metric ton" in the US). The ton in the video is a short ton, which is 2000 pounds, as made clear by the "200,000" pound figure right there in the video. No math fail in the video, but a vocabulary fail on your part.

#10 you appear to be right sir.

I blame my fail on the utter stupidity of the imperial system.

I leave you with this quote:

"How high is Mount Everest ? (Pick out the right answer)
29035 feet ?
4863 fathoms ?
9683 yards ?
5.5 miles ?
1761 rods ?
440 chains ?
44 furlongs ?
1.83 leagues ?
48.63 cable's lenghts ?

Hm.. which one should I pick..."

#11 does not matter, both are wrong as they replace each single cyrillic letter with multiple letters which are supposed to sound approximately the same in english, although english language is unable to reproduce most of them accurately (and in written form, these words look very strange). It's also pronounced wrong in the video.

another fun fact about the Tzar (or whatever bomb) the shock wave traveled around the earth 3 times before not being detectable anymore.

Drop a couple of the last ones in every major city on this planet. That should at least bring the population down a bit.

so lets take a look at the "50million tons of TNT" bomb.

he said, that 1 million is enough to power one household for like ~103.000 years
now lets make some simplified math..
a person may live for around 80years.
therefor 1 million tons could be used to offer energy for the lifetime of 1287 people.

if you now look at back the 50 million tons, those 1287 people fast raise up to the size of a fairly large town with 64.375 people.

instead of letting some really stupid badass thing explode close to the northpole and bringing us wet feed, military should try to go green and power a whole TOWN for a full lifespan.

stupid bombs. awesome looks, but still stupid.
