"To measure the effects of the bombs, the sites were populated by mannequins housed at varying degrees from ground zero, and when the devices exploded, their plaster limbs, their furniture donated by J.C. Penney, the newly Sheetrocked walls that provided them with shelter, all blew into barely identifiable and highly radioactive fragments.
