Where do you get uranium? It's not just sitting on the shelves at Home Depot.

New details on uranium, rattlesnake found during traffic stop in Guthrie

More to the story. This was too great not to follow up on.

“He told authorities he was going to make a mega snake.”

Lmao! This dude is fucking awesome!

He was joking sadly. Or fortunately? He was using the uranium to test the radioactivity of scrap metal and the uranium could be used to confirm the Geiger counter. Apparently it isn’t that odd? I guess in Guthrie.

Anyway:

There was a cheap in Sweden a few years back who tried (unsuccessfully) to build a nuclear reactor at home. He found the radioactive material online. Got arrested after writing to the Swedish Radiation Authority to double check it was on the up and up, after someone suggested what he was doing might not be legal.

Thanks for the update. Kind of figured that this was not a big deal.

I like the Mega Snake idea - it could work.



Maddie: This is not a real snake - It's photoshoped.
