MAN GO BOOM, EARTH GO BOOM

In early day Europe if a man was sentenced to be hung the judge would stamp a O, a circle with a 45 angle in it.  This was the European death sign.  Today it is all over America as the “No” sign….No parking, no smoking etc…

 

In 1945 America had a tough President, Harry S. Truman.  He liked to cuss, drink a little bourbon and play the piano.  In 1945 America was at war with Japan.  The scientists came to Harry S. Truman and they said: “We have created an atomic bomb.”  Mr. Truman asked them: “Will it end the war quickly and save lives?”  The scientists replied: “We believe it will.”  Harry S. Truman said two words: “Drop it!”

 

President Truman then gave the Japanese Imperial Leaders one week’s notice to evacuate the city of Hiroshima.  The Japanese replied: “Hell, no, we are not leaving!”

 

The B-29 Bomber Enola Gay was made ready; all the excess metal was removed for a fast getaway from the atomic blast.  Looking at the ships log book, the work on the plane was completed May 18, 1945. On August 6, 1945 the first atomic high air blast occurred over Hiroshima.  Three days later, on August 9, 1945, a second, larger high air blast occurred over Nagasaki (note 69 is a sign of balance.)

 

Near the 45 degree parallel is Mount St. Helens.  The only man who lived by Spirit Lake was Harry R. Truman; he liked to drink bourbon, cuss and play the piano the same as Harry S. Truman.  The scientists came to Mount St. Helens and said to Harry R. Truman: “It’s time to evacuate the mountain; it’s been giving warning for one week, one thousand earthquakes a day.  Everyone else has evacuated with light belongings for a fast getaway from the volcanic blast.”

 

Harry R. Truman looked at the TV camera and all America heard him say:  “Hell, no! I ain’t leaving!”

 

On May 18, 1980 Mount St. Helen was a high air blast, three days later a second larger high air blast.

 

Chief Stealth Seattle in 1855 said: “Man did not weave the web of life; man is but a strand in the web.  What he does to the web, he does to himself.”

 

Man go boom, earth go boom.
