    Short term exposure to uranium ores isn't an issue. Long term exposure is. A few puffs of a cigarette wouldn't hurt you but you can be sure of some health issues after 30-40 years or even sooner. Same with uranium ores. 

    We had a long time member of this forum who mined uranium ores and passed away much too soon from that type of exposure.


    Breathing in some Uranium Ore dust would be such a good Idea,  eaaa?

  2. Most Uranium ore is  not radio active enough to be a major health threat.  Hell Salt Substitute  can be just about as radio active as some.  Did you know Bananas are radio active ?  LOL


    Pick your self up one of these CHEAPO Geiger Counters.   I play with one from time to time .   https://www.banggood.com/Assembled-DIY-Geiger-Counter-Kit-Module-Miller-Tube-GM-Tube-Nuclear-Radiation-Detector-p-1136883.html?rmmds=myorder&cur_warehouse=CN


    Potassium Chloride
    Radioactive Salt Substitute:
    Salt substitutes contain Potassium Chloride, rather than Sodium Chloride (common table salt). As it turns out, approximately 0.01% of the Potassium found in nature is Potassium-40, a radioactive isotope with a half life of 1.28 billion years.

  3. All three of my FaceBook accounts are under lock and key at this time.    It would seem I ruffled more then some feather .   One account is permanently locked for posting e-bay links to items I use and were at a good price.  SPAMMING they called it.      Some day I'll understand the Code of Conduct ?

  4. I learned to carry a Comb because of that crap.  You work the comb between you and them and FLICK them off.   


    When your out and about and get the Erg to do the thing,  Always check the heels of your boots.


    Failing to do so could be BAD Ju Ju when you go to squat.


    Yep, Been there.

    The thought of this... had me in stitches. :25r30wi:

    I have always hated hats of any kind. Finding one that fits my weirdly shaped head has always been a challenge. Mostly, I wear a bandana that I soak regularly, but it dries out too quick to be real useful.  I have to wear a hard hat at work, but I could probably squeeze a small towel or something under it. It was hot down in the pit yesterday and I just started completely soaking myself with the water hose. That felt real good. :yesss:

    Never wore hats most of my younger days.    Learned to HATE the darn things in the military.  Forced to cart one around 24/7.  Especially the Retarded Absolute epitome of STUPID hats the Dress Blue Service Cap.  Yea,  the Dumb azz Buss Driver hats.  WORTHLESS.  And they costed a bomb when ya messed one up.   The fatigue hats were cool.  You could just crunch one up and stuff it in your pocket.  The Female Body Part Hat (C Cap) hat was ok to carry and actually kept your head warm when it was cold..  You just tucked it under your belt and forgot it was there.    Today I don't go outside with one..  LOL  I prefer a Ball Cap or a Boonie type hat. 


    Getting it Done Sir.

  6.  What kind of PMI and Maintenance would this thing require.  Or Be Prudent ?     Pull the Heads for a Look see every 50 Hours ?   Valves adjusted periodically ?   Replace bearings every 500 hours ?  Heck the Bearing would be just going Right at like 500 Hours.   As Performance Indicates ?    Not much I guess ?
