The 1944 science fiction story that predicted the atomic bomb

In 1944, fully a year before the first successful nuclear test, Astounding Science Fiction magazine published a remarkably detailed description of an atomic bomb in a story called Deadline. The story, by the otherwise undistinguished author Cleve Cartmill, sent military intelligence racing to discover the source of his information — and his motives for publishing it.

    This reminds me of more than a few interviews I have been on in the past, the best of which was as a sales manager at an office supply company.  The manager interviewing me showed up late, belittled my school and past work experience, and stumbled when I asked him pointed questions about how the company operated at the end of the interview.  I was pretty damn convinced that he had no idea what the company actually did, or what my job would be.  The capper was when he called me two weeks later saying that he was very impressed, and he’d like me to come by for a second interview.

    I learned a valuable life lesson: the limits of how low I would stoop.
