That's a very interesting hobby to try picking up.

I hope this guy wore protective clothing before blowing up stuff.

Shouldn't they follow up and question him from where he got access to these radioactive materials?

Speed-Racer1906d ago

Maybe he could have been working in a lab where it's available. Carrying it home would then be a violation.

you get in trouble for doing this like this?

good to know i was gonna try to build a super sub woofer/speaker that would kill the circuit breaker in my house but now i will look up if its legal or something.

Unless you're building the subwoofer out of radioactive materials, I wouldn't worry too much about it...

I wouldn't be surprised if this story blows up.

Speed-Racer1907d ago

If it does, I was not responsible. *runs away*

But if it goes nuclear then you'd get all the points.

Wow, this guy calls the police to see if what he is doing is ok, and instead of telling him its not, and confiscating all his stuff, they arrest him and try to convict him.

It's a hazardous substance that is illegal for non military or commercial energy purposes, there is a good reason it is not available at every corner store.

Take your pick, potential use for a primitive dirty bomb or causing innocent people to get sick from radiation exposure. He likely ignored his countries laws and has to pay the penalty, since the tag line of the article said illegal possession, why the surprise he was arrested.

Next i except to read people questioning why the police arrested a man trying to create anti-matter in his kitchen, some people.

in South Africa you could get natural uranium in Northern Cape as they mine it there
