I am so tired of documentaries on astronomy using the Atomic Bomb as a measuring device for cosmic events - okay, a solar flare can be the equivalent of 1,000,000 atomic bombs... so what?
1.) I've never seen an atomic detonation in person, and have little frame of reference.
2.) Once you get to a million anything, I will again have no frame of reference.
3.) It's trite and cliche at this point.
4.) Atomic? Really? We haven't even moved on to nuclear weapons yet?
