"300 dB (about 1000x louder than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki!)"

0.3 dB? That bomb was quieter than a drop of water on cotton.

Thanks for commenting, Kyle. The important thing to remember about the dB scale is that it's a logarithmic scale, so 20dB isn't just 2 times louder than 10dB as we might expect -- 20dB is actually ten times louder than 10dB!
