There are only two possible explanations: It's the power source of an early model Stargate, or else Tesla crashed his nuclear-powered time machine in Africa.

That was the same year that a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... them.

I love a website that gives me info on like a third of my screen at Reader's Digest For Old People size font. I don't feel that my mouse wheel finger gets enough exercise, since I have the World Scrolling Finals coming up next month. It's sites like this that keep food on my table.

Meanwhile, millions of West Africans continue to breathe deep sighs of relief this is only two billion years' worth of accumulated, natural, nuclear waste, and not a significant proven crude oil reserve to provoke all kinds of freedom and democracy.

OK, this actually gives us a way to determine if we're living in a DC or a Marvel universe.

We go there and look.  If it's Wakanda, we're in Marvel.  If it's Gorilla City, we're in DC.

The obvious answer is to bury all this waste on the Moon

 2 billion years without a meltdown.  That's a pretty good safety record.

YAY! Nuclear power is safe, natural, and there is no way anything can possibly go wrong.

Also, burying all our shiat at Yucca mountain is a good idea.
