Now Imagine, Thousands of These Being Dropped On Your Town Overnight

They call it a "huge" bomb but it was nothing of the sort.   Just an ordinary 500-pounder of the type dropped by the thousands in bombing raids over Germany in WWII.  But, because there aren't many remaining who experienced that sort of mayhem, here's a video of a bomb the Germans had to detonate in Munich.   Remember, this is just one bomb, detonated under controlled conditions.

AFAIK, the gang in Warsaw didn't like 'em very much, either.

And this is the same size bomb, albeit in a new, streamlined shape, preferred to take out mud huts in Afghanistan.
