After Robert Oppenheimer‘s ‘Trinity’ nuclear experiment was successful, he sat down with the media and explained what went through his mind after seeing the world’s first hydrogen bomb detonated. He really couldn’t piece together any coherent words so he just went with a quote from the Bhagavad Gita to sum up every emotion that flowed through his body.
We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says, “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.
This is how we all feel after Dynamite!! 2009. However, before 2009 ends…I must deliver this video of Diego Sanchez at the Fighter’s Only MMA awards last night completely tanked. It’s worth viewing and is guaranteed to deliver a laugh. I’m not sure what’s going to happen in 2010 but I do know that 2009 ended with a hydrogen bomb…entirely localized in the Saitama Super Arena. Happy 2010 everyone.
