RE: The Demon Core (I'll throw some nerd down) - That really happened to a guy named Louis something. It was called tickling the tail of the dragon. I had no idea the great John whatsisname was in a movie about it. The coffee cup thing was fake of course but he really did slip his screwdriver and allowed the hemispheres to touch, however it was for a mere second or so. He was sick as soon as he left the building (one of the most reliable indicators of radiation poisoning is how long it takes for you to puke after exposure) and he was dead within nine days. And, he knew he would die not long after the fact.
It was called the demon core because that same exact core killed some other dipshit when he was building a wall of bricks to create a near-supercritical condition, and he biffed it too.
thats strange, according to the story I read, he died instead of being turned into a blue demi god... guess you can't believe everything you see in the movies.
i fully support name-calling and profanity in general.
