A few weeks ago my physics teacher decided to get out the schools cache of radioactive stuff, i can say i was sitting 2 metres away from a Gamma radiation source. but in all honesty radiation is all around us, were constantly bombarded by it and we even have radioactive sources in our home, just take a mallet to your fire alarm and eat the americium that comes out, congratulations you've just re-enacted an assasination!
"Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohhh how how how, you're a rock n roll suicide"
