Somewhere in West Texas is a 7-inch radioactive cylinder that Halliburton would like to find. Anyone who comes across it is advised to keep their distance.
“It’s not something that produces radiation in an extremely dangerous form,” said Chris Van Deusen, a spokesman for the Texas Department of State Health Services. “But it’s best for people to stay back, 20 or 25 feet.”
Not the sort of thing you’d expect to find laying around, to be sure.
But, by the time you’re close enough to the thing to recognize it (or read the warning), you are far within the 20-25 ft distance.
Holy crap. No.
