Christmas Gift Idea!

For that little glow-in-the-dark child in all of us…

 Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab

Only available from 1951-1952, this science kit for CHILDREN included 4 types of uranium ore, a Geiger counter, a comic called “Dagwood Spits The Atom” and a coupon for ordering MORE radioactive materials. One of the four uranium ores included was Po-210 (Polonium) which, by mass, is 250,000 times more toxic than hydrogen cyanide. “Merry Christmas Kevin, here’s that giant box of poison you asked for.”
This gem came my way via my roomie’s ex-husband, who is currently fighting a cancerous tumor in his sinuses.  Please keep a good thought, or pray for him, if that’s what you do.  And yes, his name is…wait for it…DAVE!
