    Dude I want a radioactive key chain. I don't see what the big deal would be as I am sure the radiation emitted by the keychain is not that much greater then the radiation we are bombarded by everyday from the sun, microwaves, and cell phones. Hmmm also I do have a nasty habit of losing my keys

    Microwaves and cell phones are not radioactive. The emit radiation, but in other (not dangerous) wave lengths. If you say it so you should add radio stations, gravitation earthquakes and so on.

    Ahh thats just insane, The amount of radiaition is so slim, it wont affect you. I just wanted to say thanks everyone, i got a message from someone with a website (local) that sells them and got some on order. i also ordered me some uranium ore and some other neat toys to play with. All legal of coure, to that person who says they were not [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Technically, everything made of atoms is radioactive.

    So, even a cell phone that is turned off is radioactive.

    Human beings are radioactive.

    None should be of concern of going critical though.

    Radioactively Yours,

    To be prefectly honest I would probably be first in line for a nuclear keychain, It'd make a great conversation piece.

    You sure about that tweek? to my understanding an atom thats radioactive is an atom that lacks a stable nucleus. out of the 3 kinds of radiation (alpha, beta, and gamma) i doubt we produce any of the 3.

    That glowring isn't anything to worry alot about, if you guys have smoke detectors in your homes (which legally you have to have) you might want to know that smoke detectors contain americium-241 which emmits alpha radiation. It works by having alpha particles travel at high speed and knock electrons from molecules in the air. The ionized air completes a small electrical circuit inside the smoke detector. When smoke enters, it breaks the circuit created by the ionized air, and the alarm goes off. Don't feel like going near your smoke detector now do you? I think the "we fear that in which we don't understand" quote ifits well in this situation..
