Today's internet rabbit hole:

Russian soldiers mishandling radioactive materials in Ukraine -> Radioactive accidents wiki -> record scratch 👀

· · Web · 2 · 0 · 0

This kid assembled a bunch of radioactive materials and got arguably close to assembling a rudimentary breeder reactor.

All of this happened in a shed behind his mom's house, within a half mile of the house my wife lived in at the time. Wild.

It did not end well for him. He died young after struggling with mental illness and substance abuse.

The EPA designated the shed a superfund site, cleaned it up, and didn't tell the neighbors anything.
