The butterfly bomb of WW2 may have been man’s first working cluster bomb. Dozens of the submunitions could be released from a single container to attack civilian and military targets.

Yes, it’s quite touching how man embraces natural forms.
Do you love your 3-year-old? Sure you do. And what better way to show your love than to buy her a nice robotic death machine. A toy for all ages!
