Ever wonder what's under the bowl of that cereal?
Cereal helped americans won the Battle of Iwo Jima.
Not the Serial Killer. Idiot.
December 7, 1941, early morning, when Japanese forces bombarded Pearl Harbor on Hawaii. Those american troops woke up from that alarm clock. Some others woke up on heaven, sadly.
The japanese made use all of their air force to shake that island up. USA responded to the request of Japan.
Since US troops were outnumbered, the government chose not to payback immediately. In the course of 4 years, volunteers across USA went to Military settlements to enlist for the "great war" against Japan.
Where's the cereal?
Oh yeah, you are looking for the cereal. Uhm, you remember Quaker Oats? That's the one.
Physicists and Chemists figured out that cereal have a high explosive power. Explosive power?
Get a funnel with a hose attached to the narrow tube. Hose would be about 12-20 inches long. Stand two feet from a gas burner. Then blow the oats from the end of the hose. The funnel must be in line with the burner. Watch and see ze flame!
Any cereal, rich in carbohydrates, when finely divided (e.g. corn starch) and suspended in air (like a cloud of dust) is highly combustible and many flour mills have suffered serious damage as a result of stray sparks.
Quaker Oats company went from commercial-making oats to military-bomb-maker. All workers of Quaker company and some troops from the military joined forces to fill a mortar container with Quaker Oats!
Then the rest of the story will be the victory of USA versus Japan.
See how that boy said "Ow, F*ck!" in the start of this entry.
Naw yu Know!
