    as you pointed out, yet folks still have a hankering to take and store the glass. And, yes, illegal to take home. I once had a private tour of the big A-holes (the other kind) at the Nevada atom bomb testing place, and that stuff was all over the place. But not for me. I mean to take home. I also found out once the bomb site was open to the public, and I forget what year that was, people pocketed a lot of Trinitite, and one rumor claimed some guy had taken a bit too much home, and ended radiating himself to a perilous end. I have never confirmed that story, but it does seem plausible. Anyway, thanks for posting your comment on the matter. Actually, you're the first to do so.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
