    On the bright side (sort of), that claim has a source!

    As one of my physics professors was fond of saying (he did high power laser research), "And then you get the grad student to flip the switch..."

    Apparently it was a Russian who volunteered back during the Cold War.

    That reminds me about "HCN has a almond-like odor that can be detected at concentrations ten times higher than the lethal level".

    Jokes aside, it didn't have to be someone tasting plutonium for a purpose - could be some kind of accident. Not saving the information about the taste would be a waste of opportunity.
