History of my yellow electric bug

Once again danger had dropped on him with a heavy thud.

Eric was locked eye to eye with the cop.

In the deep dark cool 1971 West Texas night the oddly motionless desert was erect and still under lush and blazing stars.

It was before light pollution was a thing.

Eric had been pulled over, rousted out of the car, credential checked, and asked to open the trunk of his black lumbering stock 1967 Ford Galaxie convertible.

By luck more than guile his two earlier illegal border crossings had gone unnoticed.

Now it was imperative to keep the patrolman's eyes engaged because if the officer so much as glanced down... there were several pounds of self-harvested peyote buttons in plain sight.

As Eric lifted the heavy lid of the trunk, he chatted cordially with the officer, like the best of old friends — always with the eyes.

The flashlight quickly scanned the trunk's contents while not the slightest attention followed the light.

"OK, looks fine. Stay safe," and it was over, for the moment.

Every inch of the ride passing through five states back to the tiny college in Illinois was required to fully decompress before the next problem.

How to set up a dorm room to manufacture the mescaline.
 

More about this later, but first a bibliography and deep dive into alternative fuels with the goal of building a next generation free-use sustainable nuclear power plant in my back yard.

Now you laugh, but later you will say, "Well, of course."

received supposed radium clock though it's unlikely to be
due to research revealing this is a big scam area of interest
eBay seller may themselves have been scammed
(good if it is a scam because then not radium)

(see also "radium disposal and licensing" link below)
http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/how-can-you-tell-if-an-old-clock-dial-has-radium.151643/

"It's not something to take lightly. One kilo of radium under one pint of water will bring it to a boil from room temp, every half hour for thousands of years."

[Just as I thought.]

Deng Xiaoping, a Chinese politician from the late 1970s to the late 1980s, "The Middle East has oil; we have rare earths ... it is of extremely important strategic significance; we must be sure to handle the rare earth issue properly and make the fullest use of our country's advantage in rare earth resources."
