Are we the only ones who read David Samuels' excellent New Yorker piece on truck driver/atomic bomb researcher John Coster-Mullen and giggled/winced at this line? "These scholars had apparently been unable to conceive of an arrangement other than a "missionary position" bomb, in which a solid male projectile penetrated a vessel-like female target. But Coster-Mullen realized that a female-superior arrangement — in which a hollow projectile slammed down on top of a stationary cylinder of highly enriched uranium — yielded the correct size and mass."
