Amazon sells Uranium Ore. How many friends can say they have Uranium? This is the second time I've said this on Reddit, so I'm pretty sure I'll have a "pizza delivery van" across the street soon.

Unrefined uraninum ore is pretty safe and can be purchased on amazon. I'd suggest putting it in a vial of water to eliminate particulates though.

I don't know, but my gut tells me you can't do it unless it's shown to be safe with a Certificate of Measured Radiation.

u/IIIBlackhartIII · 23 pointsr/changemyview

I'd like to point out that you can, in fact, buy uranium ore as an individual- there's even uranium ore on Amazon.

What I think you're talking about is refined uranium-235, the kind which is used in the creation of atomic weaponry. Even supposing that you're not using it to attempt to create a bomb- and you are indeed hoping to use the product for research or development on medical or other purposes, why should individuals be allowed to obtain such a volatile material? There's the dangers of radiation poisoning, of the creation of weapons, etc... if you're truly hoping to use the uranium for research purposes, why wouldn't you go through an established university, institute, or lab? This way we make sure that qualified professionals with the equipment and know-how to make sure that it is handled safely, and for genuinely useful purposes, are the ones with access to it. And there's accountability to make sure it doesn't just end up in the hands of a bomber.

It's like if someone wanted to obtain samples of smallpox for research purposes- why would we trust just anyone and run the risk of it being mishandled, when there are established procedures and institutes to make sure it is properly contained?

u/Aldebaran-Shellmouth · 22 pointsr/AskReddit

Your life isn't complete without a tub of uranium ore. I would also like to mention that these rubber testicles somehow showed up in the search for "uranium", so you should buy those too.

Just to prove how easy it is to obtain uranium, you can literally buy it on amazon. It’s commonly sold for testing instruments.

u/10ebbor10 · 16 pointsr/news

>Uranium that was given was most likely used to add to Russia's nuclear weapons arsenal.

You do realize that what was sold where Uranium mining rights, right? It's not weaponsgrade, it's not even torn out of the ground yet. In addition, uranium ore is not scarce, you can buy it on the open market.

Hell, you can buy it on Amazon

Russia gained nothing out of this for their weapon programs.

u/cryptovariable · 11 pointsr/youtubehaiku

You're being downvoted because you, and everyone else who brings this up, all try to frame a positive as a negative in complete opposition to the facts.

Additionally, you lay blame for the "evil" deed on the wrong person because you are ideologically opposed to that person and will use any ammunition available, even if it is comprised solely of lies, to harm that person.

The uranium deal was great for the United States.

  1. It strengthened the uranium market in the US, protecting jobs and providing export revenue.
  2. It provided a product that Russia could have obtained from anywhere in the world to the Russians and added a layer of assurance that illicit uranium transactions could be traced because geochemical and isotopic signatures in the uranium mean that even if it is enriched and processed, if it is sold to a third party and the US obtains a sample, it can prove that the uranium came from the US and was part of the batch that was sold to Russia. Geochemical and isotopic analysis can even tell you, in some cases, what specific mine an ore sample came from. Most people don't know this, especially people who like to spout off about uranium without knowing anything about it.
  3. Even though you can buy a moderately radioactive sample of uranium on for about $40, there isn't a big market for it. This means that large-scale uranium mining operations are rare and they are highly dependent on government involvement. By selling such a large quantity of uranium to one of the largest consumers of uranium, the US suppressed the market for uranium output, which changed the economics of uranium mining and probably scuppered more than one project. Mining projects in Asia and Africa being stalled because a drop in demand means fewer sources of illicit uranium beyond the control of the United States.

    To top it all off, none of the Russian firms that purchased a 20% stake in US mine output can export any uranium from the US. They have to go through US-controlled entities and get the relevant NRC and AECA/ITAR permits and permissions.

    Russia: We need uranium for our reactors and radioisotope medical devices.

    US: Want to buy a stake in our mines? We have excess capacity.

    Russia: Sure

    US: Ok. You can buy the rights to 20% of our mining output. This means you don't have to buy uranium from China, but because of our laws you must go through and intermediary and get permission to export the output, if you want to export it.

    Russia: Sounds great! All of our nukes use plutonium and we have 100s of tons stockpiled from the Cold War so dealing with some paperwork to get uranium rods for our reactors and isotope samples for our nuclear medicine industry is no big deal.

    Some rando on the internet: $hillery sold us out!!!

    Well. I mean. That's why I downvoted you.

    And when now-President Trump brings this up in an attempt to whip some anger and rage into his ignorant base he is being a, and this is putting it mildly, shit-headed fucktard who has no clue (Donny, you're out of your element) about what he is regurgitating.

Resources they have available isn't a problem at this point in the story, because of Coil. Untraceable firearms are a non-issue when one is willing to wait a few days, and (at least in post-9/11 Earth Aleph), uranium is available on Amazon.

> For the same reason that we prohibit people from purchasing any other number of dangerous goods, such as radioactive materials or hazardous chemicals.

You can literally buy radioactive materials on Amazon.

>Again, I agree that it's highly unlikely anyone will use anti-tank rounds to shoot a guy in a robbery.

Side note: .50 cal - even armor-piercing - is completely useless against a modern tank. They're anti-materiel rounds; they'd be great against something like an engine block, and they're not very well-suited to killing people (compared to cheaper, lighter alternatives).

>But people have done something similar

North Hollywood was a problem for two main reasons:

  1. The perps used body armor, and the police didn't have anything that could penetrate it.

  2. The perps illegally converted several rifles to fully-automatic, and knew how to use the automatic fire effectively (including having a huge supply of ammo, using suppressing fire, and avoiding stoppages).

    The first would obviously not be affected by this law. The only point on which this law would affect the second is where it concerns magazine capacity, and the provision would be incredibly hard to enforce. In any case, at Columbine, VT, and plenty of other mass murders, the murderers usually only fire an average of around 10 rounds per magazine anyway, and in Aurora, the large-capacity drum magazine actually caused a jam; North Hollywood is exceedingly unusual in that the robbers used larger-than-standard capacity magazines effectively.

How easy is it to get Uranium in the United States? Pretty damn easy considering you can buy the stuff on Amazon.

Your professor seems to have fallen into the classic liberal trap of talking about how EASY it is to get Uranium, instead of how HARD it is to make it weapons grade.

Uranium starts out as yellowcake Uranium, which is .07% U-235 and 99.3% U-238. Reactors typically enrich the U-235 to about 1-5%. Nuclear bombs REQUIRE a U-235 enrichment of above 90%. Below 20% enrichment, Uranium it is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR URANIUM TO EXPLODE.

Enrichment is typically done using the Gasseous Diffusion and Gas Centrifuge methods, both of which require large, obvious, expensive facilities that can be easily tracked.

Is it easy to get Uranium? You bet your fucking ass it is. But it's nigh on IMPOSSIBLE to enrich it to atomic bomb levels secretly.

u/thawizard · 6 pointsr/worldnews

> You can buy "Uranium Compounds" on Amazon.

You're now on a watchlist.

u/vahntitrio · 6 pointsr/worldnews

About as well as you could.

The reason uranium still exists on this planet is it decays extremely slowly in it's natural state. As such, you can handle it without any protective gear. The stuff that is dangerous is uranium that has been brought to critical mass before, and that stuff is considerably more difficult to acquire.

My guess is they have uranium with a pretty natural rate of decay. As such, the bigger risk from a dirty bomb would be heavy metal poisoning (like you would get with lead) than the actual radioactivity of the uranium.

u/TommyJazz17 · 6 pointsr/KGATLW
u/Halowary · 6 pointsr/nottheonion

Haha you can find Uranium just walking around outside, he wouldn't be able to make anything at all with it. It's little more than a bit of rock really. You can buy Uranium on Amazon.

u/cait4g · 5 pointsr/CasualConversation

Uranium-238 has a half-life of about 4.5 billion years. So it's slow to emit radiation, and most of it is alpha particles which your skin will stop. The only danger is if you eat it. Heck you can buy uranium ore on Amazon.

Once it's been through a cycle (burned is the phrase used), and a fuel assembly will be used 2 or 3 times depending on the reactor type, there is a ton of byproducts like thorium, iodine, etc. They have increasingly shorter half lives as they decay down (I think, is been a few years since my rad con training) which means they'll emit a lot more radiation and of the stronger beta and gamma types that will cut through you and fuck up your cells.

Another fun fact, younger people are more susceptible to radiation because they have more frequent cell division. So there's a higher chance a cell that was wrecked by radiation splits.

u/idonotcollectstamps · 4 pointsr/guns

You could consider manufacturing your own armor piercing ammunition. You need to find a good stockpile of depleted uranium for the best man portable anti armor ballistics penetration capabilities. Here is a good site to get you started on accumulating a sizable weapons grade amount.

Or if you want to bypass all of that hassle just order it direct in bulk

Mind you I believe that it is illegal to manufacture depleted uranium ammunition. Then again it is illegal to jaywalk and jaywalking now a days might possibly net you a beating and or tasing/pepper spraying or all three.

And hey dumb ass what do hemorrhoids feel like? oh that's right they feel like butthurt.

u/OrigamiRock · 3 pointsr/worldnews

I'm sorry to say your understanding has been wrong. Unenriched (i.e. natural) uranium is present in the soil and in seawater. As the originator of this thread said, you can buy a can of it it on Amazon for $39.95 (+$10.49 for shipping). CANDU reactors run on natural uranium, but the fuel itself is safe to handle before it goes into the reactor. Here's a guy holding a CANDU bundle (here's another) with no shielding (the gloves are there to prevent damage to the zirconium sheath and to give more grip so the guy doesn't drop it). As I mentioned earlier, the only danger it poses to a human is if you swallow it in large quantities and get heavy metal poisoning.

Natural uranium is also not used for medical applications, because it's a) an alpha emitter and b) because it decays extremely slowly. Medical and research applications tend to use things like Cobalt 60, Molybdenum 99 and Strontium 90 because they are gamma and beta emitters and because they decay pretty quickly. (n.b. radium 223 is an alpha emitter and is sometimes used in tiny amounts to kill cancer cells.) And because they decay so quickly, it's not really useful for a bomb either because you'd either have to use it right away or a lot of it will have decayed away by the time you do.

We don't know the nature of the research that was being conducted in this case, but chances are it was chemical, not radiological.

u/Racheakt · 3 pointsr/Conservative

Argument to absurdity. But I will play along.

So you think absolute free press includes lies and fabricating evidence, and that free speech means yelling fire in a crowed theater?

The means to fabricate a nuke is beyond an individual for the most part in this nation (note you can buy and own uranium legally), but if we take the "only a militia" can on arms, then the collective could in theory amass the means to make one and be within the realm of the "it is a collective right" argument more so than the individual argument.

So to some degree I agree, but no more than I agree that absolute free speech means screaming fire in a crowded theater is ok, or for news to use fabricated stories as fact.

Actually, it is legal to own up to fifteen pounds of U-238. You can buy it online. Amazon currently has uranium ore in stock, but not the pure element as far as I can tell. This is the "classic" place to buy uranium ore. They appear to currently be sold out of pure uranium-238 metal. It's totally illegal to own fissile U-235... and all this assumes you live in the US.

u/argv_minus_one · 2 pointsr/gadgets

Partially-spent nuclear fuel is not usable as a nuclear bomb. Fuel has to be very pure in order to sustain the rapid chain reaction that happens in a nuke, and spent reactor-grade fuel isn't even close. At best, it has to be heavily refined first.

Plus you have to actually design and build the bomb itself, which is extremely difficult. The bomb's casing has to withstand the explosive force of a fucking nuke until the fuel is consumed, and only then give way, or else it'll fizzle out. Good luck.

Edit: Also, you have to somehow make the bomb not explode prematurely. Uranium is unstable, remember. If you have a chunk of 100%-pure uranium, a fission chain reaction will be started immediately by its own radioactive decay, and then you no longer have a chunk of 100%-pure uranium. (That's why highly-enriched uranium does not occur in nature.) So, you have to figure out how to make the fission chain reaction happen, but only when you want it to. Again, good luck.

Spent reactor fuel might be used to make a dirty bomb, but the effectiveness of dirty bombs as actual weapons is highly questionable.

Anyway, we already have more than enough nukes lying around—some of them unaccounted for, and probably in terrorist hands—to go full Fallout.

Fun fact, by the way: you can buy uranium on Amazon. Seriously. You can even buy it as a gift, amusingly enough.

u/3IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIID · 2 pointsr/woahdude

I think it is important to note that the system they are trying to develop doesn't use highly enriched uranium. It would use low enriched and a smaller amount. There is a video in this thread somewhere that explains it better. I mean you can buy uranium on Amazon ,if you didn't know, but how enriched it is makes the difference between no big deal and dirty bomb.

Your wish list item, should you choose to accept it, is this super useful for every day life uranium ore! With this item, you'll get to experience life with enhanced anatomy features, likely get to see your very own CIA spy drone, and have a legacy that will last you beyond 4.7 million years. What more can you honestly ask for?

> Uranium is used in nuclear weapons. That's why you don't sell it to everyone, and you don't sell it to political rivals like Russia, or Russian companies.

I can literally buy uranium on Amazon. Here's one example. Uranium is extremely common. What a nuclear bomb requires is enriched uranium, which is extremely difficult technologically to do. That's why for example Iran needed all those centrifuges; to turn easily obtainable uranium into the actually useful stuff.

> If you can't figure out why giving Russians easier access to uranium is a bad thing, you're probably dumb -- oh, I see you are a global warming cultist.

I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised that someone who doesn't understand how nuclear bombs work at all is also a global warming denier and is so far down that hole that they've decided that people accepting the evidence must be cultists. Sigh.

u/gngl · 1 pointr/todayilearned

From the available public sources and from common sense. Didn't you study this stuff in high school? I was spending hours in the library virtually every day.

The least remote possibility of weaponizing naval reactor waste would be separating U235, but due to the level of burnout, that's highly unlikely (remember, the proportion of U238, while small, is still non-zero, and it increases as the U235 disappears, thus forcing the need to re-enrich the extracted uranium which is no less difficult than starting with natural uranium in the first place, and that is more accessible to anyone than any military waste), and even if successful, nobody in the 1st world uses U235 in weapons anymore, least of all the US Navy (which was the core of your claim).

u/conspirobot · 1 pointr/conspiro

Theseusperse: ^^original ^^reddit ^^link

Depleted Uranium emits non-iodising radiation, like radio waves and microwaves and radar, you can easily buy some uranium from Amazon and test this yourself at home. It isn't dangerous at all unless you eat / drink it. You can hold it in your hands with no side effects what so ever. Radiation isn't some magical substance that can get into everything, I suggest you educate yourself on the different types of radiation and how they all act differently and effect us differently.

Not only can you legaly posses it, but thanks to the wonders of the internet you can easily purchase it on Amazon for about $40 USD. As others have pointed out, naturally occurring Uranium ore, and DU are legal without too much restriction. But for Special Nuclear Material (Enriched U-235, Pu-239, other isotopes capable of a critical reaction) you would need a NRC License (in the US).

u/Luckinhas · 1 pointr/brasil

Que existe exclusivamente na internet? Provavelmente não tem muita coisa.

Que é difícil de achar apenas andando num shopping e olhando vitrines? Muita coisa.

Eu, por exemplo, acho que seria bem difícil achar essas facas de CSGO, urânio, ou brinquedos sexuais estranhos pra vender em lojas físicas.

É maís prático em alguns casos também. Quando fui comprar as peças para o meu computador nos EUA, eu podia ir na Amazon e escolher cada peça individualmente e especificamente, de uma seleção gigantesca de possíveis peças. Em lojas físicas eu ficava limitado à uma seleção muito pequena.

But give the code to someone else since I already got one and used it to buy some games yesterday lol.

u/cephalien · 1 pointr/AskReddit

We've got a (considerably more expensive) sample in our lab for testing our geiger counters. It's just radioactive enough to register, and perfectly legal to own (since it would take tons of the stuff -- and a bunch of huge centrifuges) to get any fissile material.

u/Hypocritical_Oath · 1 pointr/Buttcoin

Can't trust a third party, so buy a uranium ore sample, a 3.5mm to USB cable, and a Geiger counter with a 3.5mm out, then use that to get you some random ass numbers. I'm sure someone's written a program for that that takes the Geiger counter as input. Oh you may also want to fracture the ore sample in a semi-random way, and then use that instead of just the standard sample, just cause.

Total price, 450$, ish.

(disclaimer, I don't know shit about Geiger Counters or getting them to feed data into a computer)

u/edman007 · 1 pointr/longisland

Heh, I'm home now, not on mobile and got a closed look at the actual data and numbers, to compare it to the EPA data. Some quotes from the article:

> The Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center has issued a Radiation Alert for Mattituck, NY on Long Island after local background radiation levels spiked 156 times higher than normal on March 14, but quickly returned to normal.

The NETC doesn't appear to have any tracking sites on long island (at least not public, because I see what appears to be EPA sites). However it seems they sell sites you can setup, so maybe those are what they mean they are tracking. And they don't seem to have issued any active alerts which BTW are based solely on a single stations readings. The site looks like a crazy person made it too, bible verses quoted as a warning on the home page? UFO chat in the forums. That doesn't looks like a legit site backed by science.

> According to local Geiger Counter equipment, the one-year average background level of radiation in Mattituck is only about 10 counts-per minute. Yet on March 15, the radiation level suddenly skyrocketed to 1565 Counts-Per-Minute (CPM)

The Yaphank data from the EPA above shows an average of 2500CPM with with a spike that's over 5000CPM, that data looks average, and inline with NYC. 10CPM sounds like a bogus number, and the EPA plots their data on a log scale, with a full order of magnitude of variation appearing in normal data. Couple that with the fact that the NETC seems to get their data from crazies buying detectors, I wonder if a crazy put a smoke detector on their detector (or bought some yellowcake to play with), I doubt this is a controlled environment and individual stations are unreliable.

> Pursuant to an ORDER dated December 10, 2010 by federal judge Donald E. Walter, sitting at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn, the former owner of this web site, radio host Hal Turner, divested himself of ownership and control of this - and all other - internet web sites. Mr. Turner is barred by court order from owning or contributing to the content of web sites until October, 2015. As such, Hal Turner has nothing to do with the ownership, operation or content of this web site.

The creator of the website seems to be a crazy

> We have been made aware that a small local newspaper, "The Suffolk Times" has run a new story about this on its web site today, and possibly in print issues. They prominently quote US Environmental protection Agency (EPA) spokesperson Elias Rodriguez, who said “We don’t have any validated data that would indicate a cause for concern.” The EPA did not test for radiation in Mattituck, NY and the EPA has no radiation monitoring stations in -- or near -- Mattituck, NY. THAT is why they have "no validated data."

> One final note, the Suffolk Times places great emphasis on the fact that the source of our story "is not a government agency" as if that has any bearing on the facts. It does not. To put it bluntly, most of us already know that the federal government - in general -- is one of the largest collections of liars on the planet. What gives our story credibility is that it is NOT based on government information!

We already know the government is liars? That's why you don't agree with the EPA when they say they have no "validated" sources?

I think that proves my point, the current operators are also crazies and the data has not been professionally analyzed and it hasn't been validated. I don't trust any of this data. I think a blogger needs to get back on their meds.

Fission, not fusion. And no, creating nuclear fission is not difficult at all. It happens naturally.

>It is no more insane to think that a disease could be created, in this day and age, than creating nuclear fusion I would think.

It absolutely is, as creating a disease would require access to a bio lab and a fair amount of education, whereas creating nuclear fission requires a lump of radioactive material, which you can actually purchase online for $40.

I'm confused why some people will eagerly throw out a joke review for a 3 wolf moon shirt, or a laptop table for your car, or uranium.

In your review say you haven't read the book yet but it helped you find your lost solid gold pocketwatch somehow, or escape cannibals, or some bullshit like that. Don't act like you read it if you haven't. Reddit is losing its ideas about community and that makes me sad :(

I need a wormhole, uranium ore, and a realistic Spongebob costume.

My daughter turned 3 on April 1st (not fooling) and her favorite cartoon is Spongebob. I bought her (and my sister) plane tickets to fly over here and visit me since I haven't been able to see her in six months. Her mother, at the last minute, refused to let her on the plane, breaking our custody agreement and screwing me out of nearly a grand. With the above items I'll finally be able to finish my time machine, go back a couple weeks, and fly over there, instead, to see her and let her meet Spongebob!

Of course, I'm going to need a computer to run the time machine. My 6 year old laptop has a burnt out network card and can't hardly Skype with my daughter, much less run Windows 8, and stupid me didn't make the time machine Win 7 compatible!
