Of course it was a joke, really. I only said it 'cause I've been doing a lot of casual about alternative energy sources, in particular, cold fusion. Who knows, if we can understand the exact processes of the fusion, then maybe we will be able to create controlled, violent, devastating explosions differing in magnitude. Sort of like holding a detonated nuclear warhead in your hand and tremendously slowing down the chemical reactions and expansion to the point where the most serious damage sustained amounts to nothing more than a paper cut !
