It's an urban legend that Oppenheimer said "I am become death, destroyer of worlds" after witnessing the first successful atomic bomb detonation. What he actually said was "wow, this blew up, check out my soundcloud"

@monorail the Sound Cloud he was referring to was the sound of the mushroom cloud which he remixes on his ARPANET website.

@monorail and his soundcloud was the mushroom cloud! that makes sense

@monorail that's not a soundcloud, that's a mushroom cloud

@monorail The fool, thinking people would care about that when he just made a mushroom cloud
