    It was an "added bonus" for Project Pluto https://jalopnik.com/the-flying-crow...ica-1435286216 One plan was for it to drop its payload of nukes then crisscross some region killing people with its sonic boom and discharged radiation. A true doomsday weapon.

    Yeah, they built like a five-mile long runway up near Arco in Idaho to test the nuclear plane.

    The project never really got off the ground.

    I just ordered a radiation measurement device for smartphones., Although the EMP would probably render a smart phone useless if you're close enough to be in real danger.
    I just ordered another beer.

    That’s Chernobli, I think we’ll be ok here.

    Although a hot tub bast back to 1992 would be pretty rad right about now.
