A Moscow college professor who was detained for having more than 30 pounds (!) of radioactive material explained to police that he needed them to help make his friend immortal. The 35-year-old teacher's friend had convinced him that exposure to "fissionable materials" could help him live forever. The pair apparently even visited the site of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster to collect contaminated items for the unconventional "treatment." While this level of friendship is admirable, we don't even like helping our friends move. Also, they both need to read fewer comic books. The professor could get up to seven years for his collection, which is just enough time to think up an even crazier scheme. [Source]
