    O/T I'm wondering what would happen if the Air Force would drop conventional bombs in the eye of the storm, while it is out in the ocean, and detinate (Sp) them befor they hit the water. Wouldn't you think this would disrupt the eye of the storm and break it up. I'm certainly not any expert in this matter, but someone out there must have more knowledge of things like this than I do. Thanks in advance, Mick

    I have been wondering that for years. Why haven't anyone tried it yet? We can send spotter planes in, why not drop a moab and see if that disrupts the barometric pressure enough to kill the storm.


    Just a thought.... Jerbear

    If the eye was only five miles wide (I think it is much larger) and only 40 thousand feet high (I think it is much taller), who much explosive would be required to raise the pressure high enough and long enough (several hours) to stop the upward draft ? We could also weaken the storm by lowering the temperature of the water under the storm. I have no idea how many ice cubes that would take.

    The ides was misinterpreted. It originally can about when the thought of an opposing force of hot wind in the contrary direction to the current flow. It was not a "bomb" but an "O-BAMA". There's enough hot air contained in one OBAMA to turn three major storms around.

    I could support dropping Obama into the middle of the hurricane to see if that would help. In fact, I could support dropping Biden in as well.

    NBC Nightly News said today that there is NO eye in this storm.

    I wonder if this means the Obama idea is out???

    And just maybe it would start a chain reaction which would destroy the world.
