It's a fun weekend project for the whole family!
Plenty of Plutonium-239. If your reactor has not produced enough yet, go check the other sources. Plutonium can be found in former soviet countries, where it is more common than food, trust me. Or buy from Iranis. They have some. You'll need about 20 pounds of it.
Metal bucket with a lid. Old paintbuckets do the trick.
100 pounds of TNT, Semtex or Gelinite. You should have some in your basement. If not, steal from the army- its bought with your money anyway.
A triggering system. Ask your local terrorist organization for more tips!
Lets get the party started
Basically, you need to craft two hemispheres out of plutonium. Safety gloves are optional, when working with it. Dont let your children or pets eat it! This can be a messy job, so i suggest you dont do it in the living room!
When the hemispheres are ready, place them 2-4 centimetres apart and wrap the explosives around them. You can use play-doh to secure the hemispheres in place.
Install the blasting cap and then wrap some more play-doh and lots of tin foil around the assembly. Secure the whole thing with plenty of ducttape. Then place the nuclear device in the bucket, drag out the wire(s) of the triggering system and install control panel if neccesary. Secure the lid. Decorate the bucket with stickers. (optional)
You now have a live nuclear device! Keep this out of the reach of children and various goverment agencies.
This will make an excellent conversation starter and party accesory!
Store in a dry, dark place, use as neccesary.
Okay, back to earth for a second- nuclear devices are bad. This article was written just to show you the basic principles how a nuclear bomb is made. You shouldn't attempt to start a WW3 in your home.
Come back tomorrow!
I will tell you what fun reactions, most of them explosive, you can do with some extremely common ingredients!
