[ 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.

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.
