    Yes, this was to show the opposite side the might of the other country.

    They were not "dropped" on NC (at least in the way that we "dropped" atomic bombs on Japan. In fact they were Mark 39 Hydrogen bombs, which fell from a B-52 bomber after it suffered severe structural failure.

    The Korean "War" never started.... It was not a war, but a "Peace Action", as a Declaration of War was never approved by the US congress

    Yes, it was used in the early 60's by Republic of Korea troops along the DMZ.

    Yes, you had Orangeburg first, and Jackson State after. Orangeburg, however, was reguarding segregation, not the Vietnam War.

    Yes, there have been allegations that IBM created a punch card system that was USED to track the numbers used at Auchwitz.

    Again, easy fact

    Quote Originally Posted by no5xmega View Post

    Yes, many museums put up fakes intentionally for security. Also, they often replace stolen items with fakes.

    It's a chain letter, which is, for the majority, extremely easily researched. I'm done with class now, or else I would still be going.

    Does it seem to you like I would beg? You can call it a reminder, moreover I don't see words like "please" or "I beg you" in that phrase!
