So, theoretically, anyone able to find them all and renovate them
would be
the world's seventh leading nuclear power?

Anybody who could find them and renovate them would be able to make
their own without going to all that effort.

The only part of value would be the plutonium. Does plutonium
corrode in water?

Yes. Nasty stuff water. It's pretty damned near the Universal
Solvent.

See for example
www.dhmo.org


DMHO was mentioned in a phone in on the radio recently regarding drugs use
at the Olympics, the presenter got quite upset that the caller was
accusing
all of one particular nation's athletes of taking it, until someone
mentioned what it was more commonly known as.
Oh, it's also used in military aviation. (He says, trying not to get too
far
OT)


Is fun to tweak uneducated greenies with their ingrained fear of 'chemicals'
sometimes!

Aircraft carriers float on it too. Is DHMO though- get it right!




I've heard rumours (unsubstantiated) that brewers are putting it in
beer. Mind you, considering some of the crap that they put in beer, it's
not surprising.

Don't B-52s use it for thrust augmentation? And Harriers? And that stuff has
to go somewhere... I'm not surprised some of it ends up in beer, that
explains a lot!
