WATERLOO, Iowa - Three years ago little six-year-old Tucky Justinpecker was caught building an atomic bomb in a backyard shed at his parent's home.
When police caught him they were shocked to see that the bomb was 97% complete.
A representative with The American Bomb Makers Federation stated that the bomb could have destroyed Iowa, Wisconsin, and parts of Minnesota.
Tucky is now 9, and looking at him he appears to be a normal 9-year-old boy. He seems well-adjusted except for the fact that he has developed a bad habit of eating spiders.
Durango Tucker with National Focus Magazine asked Tucky why in the world he would want to build an atomic bomb that was capable of tremendous untold destruction.
The 9-year-old smiled, as he took a bite out of his sardine sandwich and simply answered, "I built it to see if I could build it, and I found out that I most certainly could build it."
SIDENOTE: Tucky is presently seeing a therapist twice a month and she has recommended that his parents keep him away from any type of electronic devices just to be on the safe side.
