Richest Prince: Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah


Brunei's Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, President of the richest country in the world Popular, lavish, uses gold in everything was born literally eating with spoons made of gold Clothes worn embroidered with gold and silver.

These are some pictures of his palace. The largest and most luxurious palace in the world consists of 1788 rooms with some furnished in gold and diamond-encrusted 257 bath inlaid with gold and silver and a garage to accommodate 110 cars. The palace has 650 suites each furnished at not less than 150,000 thousand euros. This requires the visitor to spend 24 hours just to inspect each room for 30 seconds.

Most luxurious aircraft in the world, inlaid with gold. The Sultan has also a Boeing 747 worth a hundred million dollars, and then re-designed as a home at a cost of more than one hundred and twenty million dollars. Featured add- ons such as a whirlpool bath of pure gold. He also has six small aircraft and two helicopters.

At the special request of the Sultan of Brunei, the Rolls Royce company
combined their car designs with that of Porsche. This vehicle is currently in London  for use during his stay in Britain.

Wikipedia says he has:
531 Mercedes-Benzes
367 Ferraris 
362 Bentleys
185 BMWs
177 Jaguars
160 Porsches 
130 Rolls-Royces
And 20 Lamborghinis

Bringing the total number of his cars to 1,932

First Nuclear Test


The first nuclear test, "Trinity", took place on July 16, 1945.
The first nuclear weapons test was conducted in Alamogordo, New Mexico, on July 16, 1945, during the Manhattan Project, and given the codename "Trinity". The test was originally to confirm that the implosion-type nuclear weapon design was feasible, and to give an idea of what the actual size and effects of a nuclear explosion would be before they were used in combat against Japan. While the test gave a good approximation of many of the explosion's effects, it did not give an appreciable understanding of nuclear fallout, which was not well understood by the project scientists until well after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The United States conducted six nuclear tests before the Soviet Union developed their first atomic bomb (RDS-1) and tested it on August 29, 1949. Neither country had very many nuclear weapons to spare at first, and so testing was relatively infrequent (when the U.S. used two weapons for Operation Crossroads in 1946, they were detonating over 20% of their current arsenal). However, by the 1950s the United States had established a dedicated test site on its own territory (Nevada Test Site) and was also using a site in the Marshall Islands (Pacific Proving Grounds) for extensive nuclear testing.
The early tests were used primarily to discern the military effects of nuclear weapons (Crossroads had involved the effect of nuclear weapons on a navy, and how they functioned underwater) and to test new weapon designs. During the 1950s these included new hydrogen bomb designs, which were tested in the Pacific, and also new and improved fission weapon designs. The Soviet Union also began testing on a limited scale, primarily in Kazakhstan. During the later phases of the Cold War, though, both countries developed accelerated testing programs, testing many hundreds of bombs over the last half of the twentieth century.
In 1954 the Castle Bravo fallout plume spread dangerous levels of radiation over an area over 100 miles long, including inhabited islands.
Nuclear tests can involve many hazards. A number of these were illustrated in the U.S. Castle Bravo test in 1954. The weapon design tested was a new form of hydrogen bomb, and the scientists underestimated how vigorously some of the weapon materials would react. As a result, the explosion – with a yield of 15 Mt – was over twice what was predicted. Aside from this problem, the weapon also generated a large amount of radioactive nuclear fallout, more than had been anticipated, and a change in the weather pattern caused the fallout to be spread in a direction which had not been cleared in advance. The fallout plume spread high levels of radiation for over a hundred miles, contaminating a number of populated islands in nearby atoll formations (though they were soon evacuated, many of the islands' inhabitants suffered from radiation burns and later from other effects such as increased cancer rate and birth defects), as well as a Japanese fishing boat (Daigo Fukuryū Maru). One member of the boat's crew died from radiation sickness after returning to port, and it was feared that the radioactive fish they had been carrying had made it into the Japanese food supply.
