Dear Radsafe,
     Hope you are well.  According to television  (Ancient Aliens show) 
Dinosaur bones are quite radioactive
(Calcium, K-40, Radon, what else???).  Anybody ever count any???   What 
were the radionuclides
    They also suggest, possibly, that nuclear warheads were  also a 
possible mechanism for ending the dinosaur era.  Wonder who nuked  them????  I 
guess some dinosaurs survived the bombing (birds, some  reptiles, some 
dinosaurs, Nessie (Loch Ness), Coelocanths etc.).  I guess  Ocean water would be a 
pretty good shield against nuclear blasts.
    I guess other mechanisms for dinosaur destruction were  
comets/asteroids, volcanoes, etc.
    If nuclear bombing of the Earth did occur, then one  wonders how 
completely (by surface area) the Earth's surface was  destroyed.  Is the iridium 
layer observed worldwide rather continuous in  extent and thickness, and 
could it have been produced by nuclear warheads?   Or is the Iridium layer 
distribution more pointlike
(i.e. indicated by circular areas on the Earth's surface, i.e. kindof like  
a Poisson Distribution???).
    Maybe some of you can stop laughing/guffawing now.   Time to get your 
favorite Geiger counter or portable MultiChannel Analyzer and  Germanium 
detector and count some bones at your local museum.
    One Ancient Alien Archeology site had traces of  radioactivity, but the 
buildings etc. were still standing.
Did someone have a neutron bomb way back when????  Of course, the  Ancient 
Alien shows never tell you the activity levels present or the  radionuclides 
which were present.
    Regards, Joe Preisig
