Can You Split Atoms at Home? A swede investigates

A Swedish gentleman, citing a a curiosity about whether or not it’s possible to split atoms in one’s own home, has been arrested for trying to induce fission of radium, americium, and uranium in his kitchen. No joke.

After catalyzing a “small meltdown” on his stove he wrote an inquiry to the Swedish Radiation Authority asking if his activities were, strictly speaking, legal.

Keith Richards tells a great story about Charlie Watts, legendary drummer for the Stones.

After a night of drinking, Mick saw Charlie asleep and yelled, “Is that my drummer? Why don’t you get your arse down here?”

Richards continues, “Charlie got dressed in a Savile Row suit, tie, shoes, shaved, came down, grabbed him and went boom! Don’t ever call me “your drummer” again. You’re my … singer.”
