A Swedish man has been arrested after attempting to split atoms in his kitchen, claiming that he was only doing it as a “hobby”.
I must say that I’ve never thought of taking up a hobby like that. Mmmmm.
Handl, 31, said he had tried for months to set up a nuclear reactor at home and kept a blog about his experiments, describing how he created a small meltdown on his stove.
The best bit about the article is the comments that follow.
“If he sold his story to the tabloids, he could make a bomb.”
“I think my wife split some atoms in our kitchen this evening.
She called it 'dinner', but I have my doubts. If I glow later on, Let me know.”
“Didn't he know that the easiest way to split atoms is to put them in a box marked "Fragile" and send it through the post?”
“Blue Peter has much to answer for “
Finally another man who won’t be getting any how’s your father any time soon.
“Judging from my wife's attempts at cooking and the frequent 'meltdowns' which occur in our kitchen, I think she has proven beyond all doubt that 'cold fusion' DOES exist.”
