Submission + - Were you in contact with any radioactivity today? (

kalidasa writes: A retired police officer on his way home from a PET scan was pulled over by the New Hampshire State Police and asked this question: "Were you in contact with any radioactivity today?" The story (from the Boston Globe) continues:

"I told him I was surprised his equipment could detect the radioactivity in my body," Rosenthal said. But Burke didn't take Rosenthal's word for it. He asked him to prove it. "I was very lucky that I had the documents with me from the hospital," he said. "After that, he was satisfied and sent me on my way."
