Hello, it's fucking radioactive!

Since it was filed under the heading, "Diamonds are for Pussies", one could safely assume that most readers would figure out that Xeni Jardin's post on giving your sweetheart a highly radioactive uranium ore sample as a Valentine's Day gift was a joke.

But this is after all, the internets, and Xeni later posted a clarification explaining that irradiating your lover is probably not the most romantic thing to do, as well as a PC acknowledgement that... "it appears to be a product of the same deeply corrupt, violent economic system that surrounds production of most of the world's diamonds..."
