yea, we've discussed Agent Orange in my AP US History class...hell...I know just about everything about the Vietnam War because we went over it so much... If y'all really wanna read up on something neat (if you wanna call it that) look up stuff about the aftermath of the bombings in Nagasaki and Hiroshima....that stuff is REALLY crazy...the **** actually made shadows "freeze" in place....
I'on know what the deal is, cause I took AP US History jr. year, and they glossed over the Vietnam War pretty quickly. Their focus in the class I took was events before 1865 and the certain International policies the US has. But we did learn about the effects of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII. That whole section had me shook, cause it's scary as hell how far humans go to destroy each other.

yea that is real, Agent Orange is a chemical, kinda like DDT, that can mess up unborn babies when rain washes it into the water supply. it stays in the ground for years, so even tho its been outlawed, all that ttey sprayed in the 60s and 70s is still in the ground, poisoning pregnant women

Litte Boy was a complete Uranium core, while Fat Man was Uranium/Hydrogen. Essentially a test to see which one would have done more damage. Little Boy was more fiery and apocalyptic, whilst Fat Man was much "flashier" (term used loosely), and was actually the more destructive force, but due to underlying circumstances (geographical location and such) it wasn't as devastating. Fat Man = Nagasaki Little Boy = Hiroshima Thunder
