Not a good idea.

Gotta love the speed by which the Japanese authorities operate.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority notified police of the sale in January last year after finding the advertisement in November 2017.

Maybe they needed to use their old Geiger counters to find these guys… change the batteries, dust them off, see if they still worked… :)  

No mention of where the material originated or what the volume was…

Only took a year to act. And now they are just questioning them voluntarily. Wow.

Plenty of radioactive material in Japan that allowed a drone operator to land a quantity of it on Shinzo Abe’s roof....

The penalty is so low that it must make it worth the risk.

To hell with the consequences for the rest of humanity, I guess.

The powder was enclosed in a glass tube and put on sale under the name of "Uranium 99.9%" at a Yahoo online auction website.

Haven't these dummies heard of the black market? Or some dimly lit parking lot to do their stupid action?
