When I read the forum title, I thought you were talking about our newly inaugurated president!

Heh, heh! I'm an unreconstructed liberal, and have nothing but joy for our new leader's ascension :-)Do we really need more Messianic metaphors?
Oh, you and your messie metaphors! When he turns my water into a nice Merlot or Pinot, then I'll apologise!

I'm partial to a Carmeniere with dinner, or an Aleateco afterward....and who needs an apology?
Oh, I've said things (not on Instructables) that I should probably apologise for. I have verbally crucified the annoying....I mean, anointed one. But nothing a dry Cabernet couldn't fix!

So what exactly is in the jug (and how much)? Surely not elemental plutonium, since that would be a solid an inappropriate for a glass bottle. The closeup of the bottle is only slightly readable, and looks like it says:
  • <illegible>
  • LaF3 WASTES
  • FOR RECOVERY
  • <illegible> 1-15mg
  • ~ 20g.La+3

Apparently lanthanum fluoride was used as a carrier for the plutonium extraction process. That makes sense since all the lanthanides and actinides ("rare earth elements") have a strong mutual affinity.

Oh, come on, you're not going to bring up Vieques again? I promise, I had nothing to do with that :-)
I just meant all scientists in general and all humans
