The Radioactive Boyscout isn't looking too good.

This guy can’t seem to get enough radiation, even going to the extreme of stealing smoke detectors for radioactive material. At least he got his merit badge for nuclear energy.


A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and irradiated.

Who the hell wants to be the gamma male?

The hell happened to the guys face?

Yeesh, he looks like he’s been grouse hunting with Cheney!

Clean, yes. But Sterile…? :dubious: :smack:

“Police say that Hahn’s face was covered with open sores, possibly from constant exposure to radioactive materials.”

Sounds like he was just smart enough to know what radioactivity was, but somehow not smart enough to know that you shouldn’t fuck around with radioactive materials if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Next headline:

Radioactive Boy Scout Turns Invisible and Flies Out of Custody

What a dummy. $5000 fine and jail time for stealing about $150 worth of smoke detectors?

Especially since he got his first batch for free…

I expect the goggles did nothing.

Someone needs to sit this lad down and explain, “Dude, you’re not going to get super powers or incredible strength from exposure to radiation.”

As I recall, there is a poster here who purportedly served on-board a Navy nuclear-powered surface vessel with Hahn. Hahn was spinning some tale about not being able to enter the engineering spaces because of his lifetime exposure limits, but the true reason seemed to be more on the order of that he was too much of an idiot to trust with anything more dangerous than a plastic Slinky.

Or to quote Larry Niven: “Think of it as evolution in action. Average human intelligence goes up a fraction of a percent.”


They’re phasing out the ones with americium in them. Might be hard to buy them, easier to steal them.

You would think the guy would get a clue as to the problem with his hobbies every time he looks in the fucking mirror, though.

Dude, everything about that guy, from the harebrained project to the skin to the look on his face, screams METH. :eek: :frowning:

Dumb he may be. But to me, the story just yelled “obsessive compulsive, possibly with a suicidal component.”

Smoke detectors have nuclear components?

From here.

I’m as shocked as you.

This guy needs to lay off the giggle juice and find some old lady to walk across the street.

I’m sure he got glowing recommendations from his last employer.
