Hrrm..  Not much better than almost getting a 25mm depleted uranium cannon
round through the chest, thats for sure! ;)

Heh! Gotta love them union workers! Can't fire em, can't kill em, and they
make more than you cause they get paid overtime! (but they sure in the hell
can try to kill you, being salaried and such)

Every job since that one has been a dream.

BTW, anyone know what the chance of survival is for someone with DU
