Brian,  I read Radsafe in a digest mode so your note below was nearly a 
week ago, but the "fuel pellets" I'm familiar with were not fuel at all, 
only plastic replicas.  ANS used to distribute the "pellets" on a card 
with energy equivalents (i.e. one pellet = nearly a ton of coal, that sort 
of thing) as a means of promoting nuclear energy.  They don't do that 
anymore and the cards have become somewhat of a collector's item.

I'd like to get one or more inert fuel pellets for demonstrations, 
etc.  I've heard that they used to be handed out as souvenirs by 
various vendors, so I expect this isn't too strange a request.  I 
will even pay (reasonable amount).
