Your not alone,

Kim Jong Il is having a hell of a time trying to nail this one as well.

Give Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a shout, he's working on this at the moment and might be able to provide you with some pointers as to where you are going wrong.

Good luck, I guess we'll hear on the news if you've been successful but keep us posted.

Oh, right, that should be easy. We're talking 3D here. But that would be cool anyway and a lot more accurate.

Alright. I've got a list for you.


  1. Find a terrorist
  2. Get some uranium
  3. Shmooze your way through the government and get a permit allowing you to drop bombs.
  4. drop the bomb
  5. Standing a few miles away, try to quickly draw a mushroom cloud. and import it into your program.

Good Luck! biggrin
