63 years ago today...

...the United States dropped a nuclear bomb over Hiroshima Japan.

In other news, the presence of C14 isotopes in beef broth used to grow a culture of anthrax bacteria was used to determine the anthrax could be no more than two years old.

In case you are wondering, the cows eat the grass that grew out of the soil that the atomic dusts fell on during tests from the very same kind of bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. The bomb tests were all in Nevada. The cows, well, they can be from wherever.

And also in case you were wondering, the United States' formal position is opposition to the UN resolution calling for the elimination of nuclear weapons.
