Nukes & Skulls & Crossbones, oh my, 2007-02-27

Apparently the IAEA’s old radiation symbol wasn’t strong enough. They went and added a Skull & Crossbones just in case.

The IAEA tested the old symbol and “…found that many children mistook the trefoil for a non-threatening propeller.” What’s disturbing is that children are even coming anywhere near this kind of stuff.
