11. I've got a friend in the UK...
...who had a Banana Enforcement Officer ID card.

No, really. He was working for the Ministry of Agriculture and one his jobs was checking the paperwork for bananas in shops.

Monty Python. To some, just a comedy group: To others, a method of government.

13. Actually, the amount of exposure they get....
is probably far less than taking a medium-to-long range airline flight or a long day in medium mountains.

Safety standards for these things are very strict.

8. This is Hanford.
Hanford made plutonium for nuclear weapons in a huge hurry with new untested technologies. Occasionally they even spilled radioactive toxins on purpose to better understand what they'd been monitoring from the Soviet Union.

It was a very ugly business having little relationship to modern nuclear power technology.
