"Monday, August 6, 1945 at 08:06 and 2 seconds: Little Boy explodes 1,890 ft above the ground, directly over Shima Surgical Hospital. About 100,000 people in Hiroshima are killed instantly. In the rear of the Enola Gay, Bob Caron shouts ‘Here it comes!' just before the shockwave hits the plane. There was no mushroom cloud, but what they call ‘a stringer' — a cloud that comes up vertically. In Tibbet's words: ‘It was black as hell, and it had light and colors and white in it, and grey, and the top was like a folded-up Christmas tree.' ‘My God, look at that son of a bitch go!' Lewis shouts. On the tram, Eiko Taoka sees the world turn dark and hears a strange noise. She looks down at her son. He has fragments of glass in his head. He looks up at his mother and smiles. His smile will haunt Eiko for the rest of her life. He will survive for three weeks. Akihiro Takahashi is blown across the playground. Through his window, Dr Hachiya is bemused to see his garden lit by a strange light. Then there's a startling flash, darkness and thick swirling dust. The timbers that keep up the roof of his house are collapsing. He yells for his wife. Tail gunner Bob Caron takes pictures of the burning ground below. ‘It looked like lava,' he said later. Paul Tibbets is concentrating on making sure they avoid the blast. Robert Oppenheimer, Little Boy's designer, had prepared him for this moment: ‘Turn 159 degrees as fast as you can and you'll be able to put yourself the greatest distance from where the bomb exploded.' That is exactly what the B-29 Superfortress is doing." -- Today is the 70th anniversary of the morning Hiroshima was obliterated, as seen through the eyes of the Enola Gay's bomber crew and the few who survived.
The almost perfect World War II plot to bomb Japan with bats. What if your hometown were hit by the Hiroshima atomic bomb? New evidence of Japan's effort to build its own atom bomb towards the end of WWII. New evidence of Japan's effort to build its own atom bomb towards the end of WWII.
The Rape of Nanking and the evil human experiments done by Unit 731 usually come to mind when we think of Japanese war crimes. Unfortunately, those awful incidents weren't isolated cases. Fueled by racism, fanaticism, and finally desperation as their defeat seemed inevitable, the Japanese in World War II perpetrated several acts on par with Nazi war crimes.
It's the Red Rock Spa and Hotel on the northwest side of town in Summerlin. Also, I knew the girl with the bad teeth was in Kingman but I couldn't find it to save my life. Andrew
Ernie, Easy, it's the Red Rock Resort, been there done that too. Drove out there a few times 'cause they have the same cheaper Feast Buffets as the rest of the Station Casinos but the place is Upscale. They also have some Beer Joint there where they must have some 40-50 kegs of different Suds in one room you can see thru the glass in the hallway. Sorry I don't remember the name of the joint. Seriously I can tell you want to go. Just Do It! Tom

A unisex rstroom is a public toilet that people of any gender or gender identity may use. Developers may use these restrooms in order to save costs and space by eliminating the need for a separate facility, such as on airliners, trains or buses. Unisex toilets are being adopted in the US primarily because an increasing number of elderly couples include a person whose mobility issues necessitates the other's assistance. According to Dalhousie University, "A gender-neutral washroom is one where the signage is visibly identified with open, inclusive language, not just male or female. It's evident these facilities are void of gender identity and have accommodations that are especially sensitive to the needs of a greater range of people."
