Operation Teapot
At the time, it must have seemed like a grand idea to the folks at the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Civil Defense Administration. In 1955, the U.S. agencies conducted experiments, dubbed Operation Teapot, in the Nevada desert to determine what impact a nuclear explosion would have on beer and soda cans stored near Ground Zero (GZ).

Hey, give me a beer. No... not that hot one, one of the new cold ones in the cooler!
