[ RadSafe ] Dinosaur Bones

The radioactivity of dinosaur bones is due to uranium replacement under certain geochemical settings. The uranium in groundwater will drop out under reducing conditions as found in deposits of organic rich material and as a result concentrates in bones which are well preserved over time.
The nuking of the dinosaurs part isn't passing my giggle test but there have been reports of fused glass coating rocks and dwellings in India that were the result of a nuclear battle and seems to be documented in the Drona Parva found in the epic tome Mahabharata.
Then there's that green fused glass in Libya, Scotland, France....
If anyone has a chunk of any of this stuff please send me a piece for analysis so I can stop giggling.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Dinosaur Bones
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.
