I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

36 pounds of plutonium is way too much to suit me. Glenn Seaborg, the co-discoverer of plutonium, called it "the most fiendishly toxic substance known to man". Some pro-nuke people dispute this.

His partner in crime, a guy named Joseph W. Kennedy (no relation to to JFK) went to my undergrad alma mater, Stephen F. Austin State. Our claim to fame...the plutonium guy. LOL.

That....and we once won the Georgia Poultry Bowl in NCAA football.
