Think a teenager can’t build a nuclear breeder reactor without getting caught? Think again. David Hahn, aka the Radioactive Boy Scout, was able to easily collect radioactive and highly dangerous materials to experiment with nuclear energy. Just when you think the story can’t get crazier, it does.

    Nuclear shennong put tea on his ding dong, so all the doomed world can can sing along,
    God made an entire continent,
    Of people who didn't do nothing wrong,
    Ebola came around to right the wrong, but white man saves the day,
    So it can spread everywhere,
    Twice as strong,
    Praise Jesus

  39. Rob Rod says:

    Why are you making it seem like nuclear energy isn’t a positive for our world? Its much cleaner than oil or coal, and much safer than most people believe. Stop propagating the idea that nuclear energy is bad. It isnt.

  40. MoMo Baklava says:

    All the time and energy David spent building this as a kid… u can tell he was on heavy daily doses of Adderal. As he got older Adderal turned to Meth, leading him to his mugshot, covered in Meth scabs.
