    Transporting lethal radioactive material in such an uncontrolled and unsecure manner is pure idiocy. What if the truck had crashed into a school bus?

    That will be a very a painful and nasty death for the robbers.

    Yes, and it makes you wonder how many times it's done exactly the same way, all over the world, every day...

    Interesting. There's a debate going on right now in another thread about whether or not karma is real. I'd say the proof is in the cobalt-60.

    I'm pretty sure there's a universal symbol for radioactive material.

    My point was, this is important stuff. The responsibility of the folks shipping it should not be lost in the stupidity of the Darwin Award candidates who hijacked it :)

    I get that it's dangerous stuff, but if it's used in hospital machines it's not that rare. They're shipping it from one place in Mexico to another place in Mexico. Why would you wonder about different language markings?

    Sorry Mike, that briefcase belongs to one Marcellus Wallace. And if you needed to know, he does not look like a bitch.

    If I were the owner/shipper, I'd feel bad if some unlucky souls opened it because they could not read what was in it. Maybe I'm just a softee :)
