Amazon.com: Uranium Ore: Electronics

Obviously a harmless item. But look at the "Customers who bought this also bought..." part.

Did you see they have one "used" uranium ore? From looking at the "also bought" items, I don't think I want to go near it.

Well Bunny, I know you are not a terrorist. So which of these "also bought" products were you looking for?

I thought all uranium ore was "used".

Read the reviews...I love the one from the guy who bought the uranium thinking it would make watch hands glow in the dark. He confused it with radium....

Even better, read the comments on the reviews. Its tough to figure out which are more hilarious...the funny ones or the people who took the reviews seriously and wanted to correct misunderstandings...

"Well I already said that. If my dad knew his Uranium from his Radium we'd already be getting glowing reviews on our new watches. Now we are stuck because we financed this whole thing on our credit card and a second mortgage on the house (with an adjustable rate, which it turns out is not good! - who knew this!!!) and we have to buy the material with the last credit card so we figured Amazon is the way to go. So we end up maxxing out the card on Uranium Ore here and then we find out that Uranium does NOT glow in the dark like some posters suggested and we are sitting on a basement full of useless Uranium which is probably decaying like mad anyway and Amazon's return policy is not good on Uranium, let me tell you now!"

Looks like the radioactive Boy Scout has been at it again.

WARNING: Gross-out alert (scary mug shot). Before clicking on the above link, please set down all frosty beverages, swallow all nasal-capable liquids, and back away from the monitor.

Apparently Ken Silverstein has managed to turn his old magazine article into an entire book. Amazon.com should recommend that with these uranium sales.
