> 1950s nukes were like something out of Warhammer 40k. Why use shovels… when we have atom bombs? Why use anti-tank rifles… when we have atom bombs? Why use rocket fuel… when we have atom bombs? Why use landmines… when we have chickens… and atom bombs?
That era was insane.
Some people spent their careers blowing shit up with nukes and then inspecting the damage. Like a good 20-30 years was spent doing this stuff.
Almost everything in that era could be boiled down to “Have you tried using a nuke yet?” Like cooking food for example. Why individually cook a million meals for your soldiers when you could just detonate a small nuke and cook all of them instantly?
