Out of the Blue

QuakeCon kicks off in Texas today, much to my disappointment. This is because right around the time I decided to make the effort to go down to attend, a conflict popped up that's not only preventing me attending QuakeCon, but is also going to keep me offline for parts of today and tomorrow. Apologies for the disruption, and hopefully I'll be able to catch up well enough along the way.

OK, I'll admit the end-result was the guy was probably messing with some low radiation stuff and the chances for anything catastrophic were probably low.

But unless he lived out in the sticks and was far-far away from anyone, how could he NOT think that maybe it wasn't allowed.

Considering it sounds like he doesn't know what he's doing the chance for contamination was probably pretty high. Which means the neighbors could've been exposed (directly, via the water table, etc).

Back in 1994 a 17 year old kid attempted to build a reactor in a shed in his back yard, which resulted in the NRC dismantling the shed and digging up the back yard to be shipped off for storage.
