Neither of those substances are overly dangerous or radioactive. It's the stuff with shorter half lives that you have to worry about. It decays faster, and pound-for-pound will release a greater amount of radioactivity in a shorter time scale.

PU-238 has a half life of 87.7 years. It will be cold and inert thousands of years before entering another star system.

Comment Only until Snowden receives very needed justice. (Score 1) 285

That will end when he's finally captured, prosecuted, convicted, and put beyond pardon. Worst case, ensure that he and his immediate helpers can do no more damage - in any way possible.

Snowden thought wrong and now he puts US citizens of all types in danger by attacking the NSA. No amount of modbombing will change that.

When one throws away their career, consorts with the enemy, and provides them aid through unauthorized disclosures of information - they lost any ability to be measured as an American.

If you want to find the "better American", it'll be those involved in the capture, prosecution, and conviction of Snowden.

Really? No matter what it was? What if they were kidnapping children and harvesting their organs?

Indirect evidence would show up, much like it has prior to Snowden's actions.

It's certainly a very interesting position you take, that is to say an authoritarian and amoral one.

It is a position that maintains the idea that the US does not submit to the world.

I'd say it was his moral duty as a human being, which is the only authority anyone should ever need.

However, he cannot escape the consequences of putting his own judgment in front of others.

You disgust me. I don't think you belong in a country that is said to be the land of the free and the home of the brave; you're a coward.

How interesting that you're calling me out with a greater amount of anonymity versus my own. At least I'm willing to put my "name" to my opinion regarding the misdeeds of Snowden and their implications throughout the world.
