    Remind you so that you don't attempt this at home - or anywhere else.

    Back in the day, we used to joke about light emitting gonads. I had to do with standing astride particle accelerators.

    Actually, so folks used to 'sight' beams. The eventually developed cataracts.

    Radiation is harmful to the body. Radiation should be respected for what it is.

    Humans are 'low energy' life forms. We live in a very narrow band of tolerances with respect to temperature, water and oxygen.
