Uranium

Found another abandoned uranium mine today, chocked full of carnotite. You think Iran and NK check eBay? How 'bout it DP, need some more yellow cake?

Have some connections in the hood that can provide you with the centrifuges you so desperately need...

US environmental and OSHA regs probably mean such mines couldn't be used even if there was enough ore of commercially viable quantities. Let the Canadians or those brown people in Africa dig it out. I mean, the Africans are brown already, right? (High sarcasm intended).

BTW you get something like one percent fissile U-235 U-238 etc. from the ore. The rest is non-fissile (or not used fissile) isotopes.

Import/Export . . .

Some years back I had an inquiry for six Lycoming T-56 turboprop engines. Buyer repeatedly assured me "They aren't going to Libya!!!" Now why would he be so adamant about that? Turns out there is an airplane known as the Aeritalia G222 which looks like a smaller, twin engine version of a C-130. The Lycoming T-56 is the standard engine EXCEPT for airplanes bound for Libya - they get a less powerful engine from somebody else (Safran?) because the T-56 just happens to be on the embargoed list for Libya (or it was, anyway). Who could have imagined such a thing? But your honor, the buyer ASSURED me they weren't going to Libya . . .

Then there was the client I had who actually owned a Russian diesel submarine. (This was just after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. If you saw the Nick Cage movie Lords of War, all that hardware really WAS available, and cheap, too. You can still buy a just flyable AN-2 from Romania for a whole two thousand dollars, but then you have to get it here and the FAA won't register it.)

Anyway, he had it on a barge and towed it to Sydney Australia for display. The barge arrived on a weekend and of course nobody was around to receive it. He started making phone calls and the only part anyone actually heard was "Russian submarine in the harbor at Sydney!" That definitely woke them up and got them ALL excited. Eventually, things calmed down when they realized it was on a barge for display only and wasn't about to torpedo the opera house.

Best Regards,

I wasn't here, this conversation never took place, we were never on the Russian Front, and I don't speak English anyway so I can't understand a word you are saying.

As a mineral specimen, looks interesting.

Ebay may actually be a decent venue.
