Nuclear terrorism, or child's play?

Ask a German Policeman.

Or maybe don't.

Because if I were a terrorist planting a dirty bomb, I'd be sure to stick a RADIOACTIVE! sticker on the side.

And now that the test run is over, and the heat is off, this kid makes a dirty bomb delivery to his black market contacts, colorful sticker on the outside, waving and smiling at the ever so trusting cops.

Definitely. You have to be very serious about dirty bombs, because people could get hurt, you know.

When I was young, we played with working computers. This article shows how much the crisis has hit us. Kids can't even afford working computers, all they have is broken junk and their imagination! That's so sad.
I'll be there in 5 minutes. If not, read this again.

The funny thing is, they really can't. Radioactive material is incredibly hard to effectively weaponize; the dirty bomb thing is largely a pie-in-the-sky threat (mainly because it's not terribly effective terrorism to carry out an attack that will marginally increase 30-year cancer risk for people in a few blocks, when its much cheaper and easier to kill people today with high explosive)...
