    I honestly think this would be cool to ACTUALLY Do this In REAL LIFE With a SMALL nuclear bomb. Other then it killing a couple hundred fish, and maybe a one or two nearby whales, its effect would be significantly less dramatic and a interesting Large-scale science experiment. Whats the worst that could happen?...

    I disagree. The more you squeeze a explosive the more destruction. The water would not win.

    I'm assuming you've tried this. Sorry, just been told it's all good only to have things get fu#$@d up and have the "protagonists" in the situation say " I didn't know that was going to happen."

    I love how some Kurzgesagt videos are very high minded and deeply thought concepts, while others are like "what if we blew shit up?" or "what if we threw an elephant from a tall building?"

    00:50 it's a relatively pristine environment thanks to the absence of humans. A great place for our nuclear test!Yep, human nature has been exposed.
