Nuclear Disarmament

Fun fact of the day: ten percent of all electricity in the United States is made from the recycled fissile material from disarmed nuclear weapons.

Given that our university is powered by a nuclear reactor, there is a 45 percent chance that the electricity powering my computer right now came from a Soviet nuclear weapon, and a five percent chance it came from an American one.

This makes me feel good about life.
