    Well, not for a million years or so.  This stuff isn't like normal chemical toxins that kill once or twice and get metabolized into something else, something more benign.

    Some of this stuff has a half-life of a million years.  It kills for a million years.  A very small quantity of it will drop an elephant.  And to paint an even cheerier picture, there are hundreds of thousands of tons of it sitting in swimming pools out behind nuke plants all over the planet.  The Sphinx is only 30,000 years old, give or take 10k.  You think those swimming pools are going to last that long?

    We've basically guaranteed the end of life on the planet so go ahead and enjoy the Internet while it lasts.

    The meek shall inherit the Earth that the stupid destroyed.
