    Rattlesnake and radioactive uranium (& open bottle of cheap whiskey) found during Oklahoma traffic stop

    GUTHRIE, Okla. - Two people were arrested in Oklahoma after police stopped a stolen car and found a rattlesnake, radioactive uranium, and an open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe, according to KFOR.

    Stephen Jennings is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container of liquor, operating a vehicle with a suspended license, and failure to carry security verification form. Rachael Rivera is charged with possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.

    The traffic stop was made at 11 a.m. in a Guthrie neighborhood because the tag was expired. Jennings was in the driver's seat and Rivera was in the passenger seat. Police said a Timber rattlesnake inside a terrarium was in the backseat.

    While Jennings was informing officers he had a gun in the console, police learned the vehicle had been reported stolen.

    "So now he's got a rattlesnake, a stolen vehicle, firearm, and somebody under arrest," said Guthrie Police Sgt. Anthony Gibbs.

    Police also found an open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe next to the gun. During a search of the vehicle, officers found a canister of radioactive powdered uranium.

    "When that happens of course, we call in a company that deals with that specifically and it's taken safely into possession," Sgt. Gibbs said. "The uranium is the wild card in that situation."

    Police are still working to determine why the suspects had uranium in the vehicle. Officers also said there were no charges related to the rattlesnake.

    "It happens to be rattlesnake season at the time, so he can be in possession of this rattlesnake because he has a valid lifetime hunting and fishing license," Sgt. Gibbs said.

    And you thought "carjacking with a snake and crashing a pole vaulting contest" was a helluva topic.

    Note to self - uranium trumps rattlesnake.

    AFAIAC the only good rattlesnake is a DEAD one.
    Thus let me live, unseen, unknown; thus unlamented let me die; steal from the world, and not a stone tell where I lie.

    The best place to be in the event of a nuclear explosion is anywhere you can say: "what the hell was that!?!"

    I am suspecting the vehicles owner may have some explaining.

    Hey, maybe they were looking to trade up for a better stolen car.

    Officer, I pulled the gun on the snake, he coiled around and threw the hot rock at me, he offered an apology, we drank his cheap whiskey, and he asked me to drive him home in his ride. Honestly, I didn’t know it wasn’t his car.

    Anyone know exactly what powdered uranium is used for and how radioactive it is?

    That's pretty good. You could put that to music and make a video.

    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    Thanks. Leave it to a bureaucrat to call it something other than what it is!

    Used in minute quantities in "sputtering" or giving window glass a thin sun reflective film, used to be mixed in with glazes to coat Fiesta ware cookware with, and sometimes a catalyst component in the fuel refining industry.
    In the amounts used in those industries, it's not much above background radiation levels in terms of radioactivity.
    What they had couldn't have been used for a dirty bomb, uranium needs enrichment for that use.

    Need to order some of this? Or other isotopes? Or whatever element you desire? Just contact this company-seems they have everything under the sun (and materials to make liquid sunshine) available. Just put in a pricing request and get it delivered........
    Seriously though-YIKES!

    Powdered uranium might be "yellowcake" - which is middle point of uranium in concentration.

    You could be short term exposed without hazard, but inhalation might eventually kill you similarly to silicosis.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellowcake

    The uranium in yellowcake is almost exclusively (>99%) U-238, with very low radioactivity. U-238 has an extremely long half-life, over 4 billion years, meaning that it emits radiation at a slow rate. This stage of processing is before the more radioactive U-235 is concentrated, so by definition, this stage of uranium has the same radioactivity as it did in nature when it was underground, as the proportions of isotopes are at their native relative concentration. Despite its long radioactive half-life, it has a shorter biological half-life, 15 days.[4] Yellowcake is as radiologically harmless as natural potassium-carrying minerals or thorium-oxide mantles used in paraffin fuel lanterns.[5]

    Maybe he was going fishing?




    I went fishing this morning but after a short time I ran out of worms.

    Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in its mouth.

    Frogs are good bass bait.

    Knowing the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog in its mouth, I grabbed it right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.

    Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit. So, I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth. Its eyes rolled back, and it went limp.

    I released the snake into the lake without incident and carried on fishing, using the frog.

    Not long after, I felt a nudge on my foot. It was that dang snake… with two more frogs.

    I'm impressed the officers recognized the mineral as radioactive. Do they carry Geiger counters? Must be a legacy of Karen Silkwood.

    The plant where that happened is just up the road from Guthrie.

    I drive by it occasionally, my Nukealert doesn't go off tho.

    What is surprising to me about this is that, nowhere in this article, or the headline, do I see the expression, "Florida Man."
