    The Raw Story | Could missing Wal-Mart signs wind up as dirty bomb?

    A little over a year ago, a routine audit at Wal-Mart reported a few missing exit signs at the company's stores and warehouses. As the audit continued, more and more signs turned up missing, and a month ago, Wal-Mart revealed that as many as 20% of the 70,000 signs at its 4500 facilities cannot be accounted for, a stunning total of 15,800 signs in all.

    This would be of no particular concern -- except that the signs are radioactive. They contain tritium gas, a form of hydrogen which is used for emergency exit signs because of its ability to glow in the dark when the power goes out.

    Is this a confession? I hope you aren't dipping your penis in that radioactive sh!t to make it glow in the dark. They have condoms that do that without the radioactive side effects.

    That's sort of creepy. But how easy is it to steal that many signs? Wouldn't it be easier to simply buy them from the same place Walmart bought them from? And how easy would it be to get the gas from a sign to a dirty bomb? I wonder.

    I think the question that ought to be asked is how feasible is it to extract material from the signs in any meaningful quantity?

    Kinda like the irish race.. Harry shouldn't whine all that much after his famous "kunt" comment about two months ago.. if I did that FTW would have me banned forever.. but then again there are two sets of rules here.

    I think the Wal-Mart greeters are doing it ... dipping their dentures into the stuff.

    How would a Canadian fill out this job App?

    depends on what RACE they are, not what country he or she is from?

    I had gone through the post. The details provided in the post regarding the job application are really nice and also understandable. I would like to ask that if the person doesn't belong to these countries, then how would he can fill the application? Please produce some attachment links about the topic and also for the more detailed view.
