Happy Independence Day

Happy Birthday, U.S.A.!

Explosions, explosions, explosions! The day all the little (and us bigger) American pyromaniacs get to blow things up!

Have some fireworks:

How's 16,000 firecrackers sound?

How about 50,000 bottlerockets within 5 seconds?

OK, fine, how about 3.2 million firecrackers?

Ok, I can only go up to one of the biggest explosions by the U.S., the 21 kiloton Baker test at the Bikini atolls.

Dude, if that doesn't empress you, then I'll just have to go with the biggest explosion ever, but that was done by those commies, the Soviets: 58 megatons!
(the video does start to show after a few seconds).

Proud to be an American!
I've got your back, America. I've got ya covered.

The 15-megaton thermonuclear detonation (codenamed Bravo) at Bikini Atoll was the largest ever by the USA. The Baker test was pretty anticlimactic in comparison.

The Bravo test also is how the bikini swimsuit got its name -- because it was likened to having a bomb-like effect on the culture. For serious.
