Now we have to worry about Bin Laden's "radiation bombs?" : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

Gee, as if we didn't have enough on our paranoia plates, now comes news that Bin Laden is apparently (and I emphasize apparently) trying to put together the ingredients for a so-called radiation bomb, which uses conventional explosives to spread high-level radioactive material over a large area. See

Wonder what his target list looks like.

Oh, Cash,

How can you and all of us worry about such trivia, as this business about radiation bombs.

We have to concern ourselves with the Cuban Immigrant problem, as this is far more important than some little bomb.

To get serious, I suspect there is far more to worry about in this area that we can possibly imagine. We've got a long, hot Summer ahead of us.

I'm reminded of a post somewhere wherein Flint said he lost 30 lbs. worrying about Y2k. I'm in the market for a 10 lb. worry...15 lb. max. Any suggestions?

Anita, have you considered worrying about YXk (Year 10,000). Might not eliminate ten pounds, but you gotta start somewhere. 8^)
