We all know that the Manhattan Project got together a number of really smart physics types to make a bomb. But did you know that its purview was actually far wider, and that it comprised brilliant minds from all disciplines, including English majors, Film Studies M.A. candidates, and sports fans?

Here’s some of the OTHER fallout from the Manhattan project that we don’t give as much credit:

the way Tylenol tastes

lake-effect snow

the phrase “Fuck you”

mosquito bites and canker sores

That fucking cloud who throws those orange spiky guys at you in Super Mario Brothers (Lakitu)

franchise sequels

Philadelphia

“The Family Circus”

emo

Sinbad

love,
