US ‘Apocalypse’ Weapon, So Lethal It Can Wipe Out Entire Continents in One Strike

An apocalypse machine capable of devastating entire continents.

A A A

The USS Pennsylvania is just as stealthy as it is deadly. Labeled by the National Geographic as “the most lethal weapon ever designed,” this United States Navy Ohio class submarine is “an apocalypse machine capable of devastating entire continents.”

Once the vessel dives underwater, it immediately becomes completely undetectable. The submarine makes no noise, making it extremely difficult for its enemies to pinpoint its exact location.

The USS Pennsylvania is the “silent predator of the deep.”

So with the combination of its stealthy capabilities and the nuclear weapons it carries, this submarine is indeed the silent predator of the deep.

As Captain Bradford S. Neff pointed out during an interview:

“One of our primary missions is to remain at sea undetected. So our job day to day, hour to hour is to remain quiet so that no one knows where we are except us.”

The submarine can dive 250 meters underwater and stay there for up to 6 months.

The technology used for the USS Pennsylvania is definitely most advanced. In fact, this submarine can dive more than 250 meters and can stay underwater up to 6 months – without the need to resurface. More impressively, it can run for 20 years without refueling.

The USS Pennsylvania is currently the largest submarine in the western world.

The USS Pennsylvania is the biggest submarine in the US Navy. The strategic missile submarine goes on patrol underwater for at least “72 days or so” and is manned by 165 crew members.

As for its firepower, the USS Pennsylvania carries nuclear weapons that can, as mentioned above, wipe out an entire continent in one strike. The purpose of having this, of course, is nuclear deterrence – a strategy used to prevent war.

Basically, the idea behind having a terrifying firepower is to make enemies think twice about attacking the country. Russia, for example, has nuclear weapons at their disposal but they would hesitate to attempt launching an attack against another nuclear-powered country such as the United States, because of the certainty of mutual assured destruction (MAD). A 100% guarantee that the result is an immediate, irreversible escalation of hostilities resulting in both country’s mutual, total, and assured destruction.

In order to fully implement the MAD doctrine, the United States nuclear arsenal is comprised of three legs also known as the “nuclear triad”, which refers to the three ways the U.S. is capable of firing nuclear weapons. Warheads can be launched from the air via strategic bombers carrying gravity bombs or cruise missiles, from the sea by submarines holding ballistic missiles, or from underground silos also containing land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

The theory is that a first strike against the United States could not hope to destroy all three legs of the triad at once, and even if two of the three legs of the triad are destroyed, the third can still inflict a retaliatory strike. The USS Pennsylvania is just one component of USA’s “nuclear triad.”

Medical Miracle: This Guy Was Born With His Heart Beating OUTSIDE His Rib Cage

A slight bump or fall can kill him instantly.

Enclosed inside the rib cage, the human heart is already a vulnerable part of the body. Extreme pressure to the chest or a deep puncture can bring damage it. Now imagine your heart positioned OUTSIDE the rib cage, protected only by a thin layer of skin.

It's a terrifying thought, but it didn't stop 18-year old Arpit Gohil from India from trying to live a normal life, even with the knowledge that a slight bump or fall can kill him in an instant.

Dash Cam Videos Reveal Scammers Faking Car Accidents by Doing This Stupid Stunt

This is a very sick stunt, and drivers should beware of this!

A disturbing video has been circulating the social media. It’s a compilation of dash cam footage that are apparently taken from an Asian country. The dates indicated on the videos clearly show that they have been happening for several years now, and it's frightening.

Several men and women fake car accidents by deliberately running towards moving vehicles, jumping on the hoods, and acting as if the car hit them. What’s terrifying about this is that some of these people were even just standing in the middle of traffic, waiting for a chance, and probably picking out a poor driver to terrorize.

Fortunately, the people they tried to victimize had dash cams installed in their vehicles.
