>>Curl up in a ball as you hit the ground.

Good idea. Back in my high school days, I had to calculate the blast radius of a 100-megaton hydrogen bomb. [Khrushchev 1964] It's nasty when the base of the mushroom cloud is almost the width of your state.

By the way, notice this open source news?

3 Arrested in Radioactive Sale Bid
By WILLIAM J. KOLE – 12 hours ago
BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (AP) — Three people have been arrested for trying to sell more than two pounds of an unspecified radioactive material, which officials then seized, police said Wednesday. Specialists were examining the radioactive material, which the three were trying to sell for $1 million, said police spokesman Martin Korch.

Conflicting reports as to whether it was weapons grade or merely refined. Good thing the DIA/NSA/CIA lets the Slovakian police take the credit.

Those guys must have been like Dr. Evil...One MILLION dollars ... [pinkly to mouth]....
