They can have my Geiger Counter when they pry it from my glowing hand

at 4:35 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, Insane Equipment, Other, What Were They Thinking

OK, NYC has it’s reasons to be a little careful but Richard Falkenrath, the NYPD’s deputy commissioner for counterterrorism may be just a little bit too careful. As the Village Voice reports that the city is just a little worried that the good citizens might just report too many false alarms. If you read through the comments, a couple of people had the same thought I had. Smoke alarms give false alarms very, very often, and if you have an alarm system the firetrucks are coming just in case. Don’t some smoke detectors measure radiation increases?  Plus in the greater New York area you can’t sell a house without a Radon Test and in some houses there is a powered radon detector so you get a warning if the abatment system fails. So if I can’t have one of these.

Can I use this?

 

(I had one of these as a kid. Of course back then we thought nuclear energy would save the world. )

It’s not a ""Geiger" counter but detecting alpha particles is better then nothing,

I wonder what Mr. Falkenrath’s reaction be if he knew I could get this –

    Actually, ionization smoke detectors detect a decrease in radiation. There is a radiation source (Am-247) that ionizes the air which carries an electrical current. When smoke enters the chamber, it blocks the radiation which cuts the current tripping the alarm.
