How about some Plutonium!

The bottle in question was discovered in a burial trench at the Hanford nuclear site in Washington state, north-western US.

The Hanford site is now the focus of a massive environmental cleanup effort due to high levels of radioactive waste that remain at the site.

While excavating a burial trench in December 2004, clean-up personnel discovered a safe which contained a jug filled with whitish liquid slurry.

Further tests revealed the bottle contained a type of plutonium made by re-processing spent fuel in a manner consistent with early operations at Hanford.

That's why proper waste disposal is crucial! No one welcomes a common household pest. Now imagine having to deal with an overgrown mutant rat.

Thanks ApTyp!

Into the water, and no I'm not kidding. Theres something like a 50 mile radius around the plant where everyone got cancer and died, and that part of the columbia(i believe) river is fucking toxic. Lots of bitching in the papers lately around here about the whole mess.

I was under the impression that DU had no radioactive properties, and was only a very dense, heavy metal.

Nonetheless, we must be prepared with munitions for our implementation of Gauss!

Enlightening, Redeye. It answers a lot of questions I was either procrastinating or forgetting to look up myself.
