(Vaguely)SCIENCE FICTION BOOK REVIEW: “The Fourth Bear” by Jasper Fforde (2006)

Republibot 3.0's picture

It is a little-known fact about Cucumbers that as they grow they can filter Deuterium and Tritium from groundwater and store it in themselves in ever-greater concentrations. This isn’t a problem ordinarily as Deuterium is harmless to people and cucumbers are, on the whole, pretty small. However, if a cucumber were grown to a weight of exactly fifty pounds, it would have reached critical mass and would explode like an atomic bomb. A thermo-Cucular Bomb.
