    Can you combine this with the "What If We Detonated All Nuclear Bombs at Once?" video? It'd be interesting to know if dropping all the nukes on Earth in the mariana trench would actually do anything, or if it would be an effective way to dispose of them.

    I wonder what Tsar Bomba would do if it was detonated in the general ocean floor? Not a trench.
