Polonium-210, which has recently become well-known as one of the deadliest substances in the world--is available for purchase on the Web.I feel so much safer. I can't take a liquid over 3.4 ounces on an airplane but someone can ship Polonium-210 through the mail to me.
Trace amounts of the radioactive substance--about 100 billion times as deadly as cyanide--are for sale for $69 on a site run by a physicist and flying-saucer enthusiast, according to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle. It will then be conveniently delivered to your doorstep via the U.S. Postal Service or United Parcel Service.
Thanks but no thanks.
