Radioactive Items in a Household and Everyday Life

Radioactive Items in a Household and Everyday Life

In this video I demonstrate some radioactive items that are (or used to be) a part of our households or everyday life. For example, Fiesta Ware dishes, uranium glass, thorium lantern mantles, smoke detectors or radium watches. I use my 1962 military Geiger counter RBGT-62 and my homemade digital Geiger counter with an alpha sensitive (mica window) Geiger tube to measure the items.

Warning: Those items may be dangerous, especially when broken or opened!

    Hi maybe u selling one unit.love ur acent in videos.best greating from Lithuania

    Ty musíš být čech 😀

  5. Fadi F. on September 3, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Can you please give us a link to make that radio activity detector ??

  6. Против Глобал on September 3, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    3 milli Roentgens per hour??? D:

    Wear that watch 24/7 for 2 years and reach a mximum dose of radiation that you should receive in your whole life…

  7. CFS Fire Alarms on September 3, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    That’s a cool smoke alarm. Where did you get it?

  8. Brotang Youst on September 3, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Anybody smart enough to know how or if those plates and cups are actually dangerous with that level?

  9. bill benkovski on September 3, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    normal radiation is 2 clicks per second, any higher – run away,
    this guy is a cancer candidate handing all this stuff WITHOUT gloves … dude – good luck

  10. Steve Mack on September 3, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Yes, I just made another video of radioactive items in my home👍

  11. mattikaki on September 3, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    I remember when I was a kid in 50’s and watched our alarm clock under the guilt. It looked so beautiful. And that explains why I am so bright. Hehehe. You have one sun glasses lens over the seven segment display. That’s good idea , must keep that in mind.

    Sobotka style

  13. CassetteMaster on September 3, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Gotta love radioactive smoke detectors! I have an old detector that has 13.4uCi of Americium 241.

  14. Martin Vojtkovszky on September 3, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    3,6 rontgen/hour not good but not terrilible

  15. Julian Stanev on September 3, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    It’s very low level radiation, not so dangerous

  16. Snow Villiers on September 3, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Hi, please write name and model this ckocks, thanks!

  17. Aniquin Stark on September 3, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    I own a makeup brush from decades ago that contains radium. The packaging claims it had skin benefits lmao

    Čech? Prízvuk :)))

    What about a smart electrical meter?

    I Already Have A Geiger Counter And Uranium Glass And Radium Watch Hands And Americium-241 Source But Not Old Uranium Radioactive Fiestaware (New Fiestaware Does Not Have Uranium) Thorium Gas Lantern Or Welding Rods

  23. KarbineKyle on September 3, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    These sources are nice, but not that dangerous at all here. Avoid ingesting any of it somehow, especially inhalation, like removing the radium paint. Nobody should worry about these. I have a collection of sources, and I look for the hottest sources I can find. I have almost 500 μCi of Am-241 alone. You won’t get radiation sickness from items like these. Dangerous would be in _roentgens._ Not microroentgens or milliroentgens per hour. That’s low level.

  24. Đorđe on September 3, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Now go to Chernobyl with that thing and catch a catfish there. When you catch a catfish shove the probe up his ass and put the earphone to the microphone so we can hear just how much radioactive the fish is.

  25. thomas hardin on September 3, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    At 6:57 the cellular phone sounds it’s radiation! 😉⚡️📡

  26. M.K.G. empire on September 3, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Eat a bit more garlic. That is good to fight with cancer that radiation can couse. Just a tip after this video.

  27. ale scipioni on September 3, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    nice video, I loved it, but I also liked your self-built machine for the tadiazioni, you can kindly provide me the wiring diagram with the list of components?

  28. Gacheru Mburu on September 3, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    😱

  29. Michael Sandoval on September 3, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    What the hell did this freaking guy say? Can someone translate?

  30. A. R. Jasso on September 3, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    i mean, its not like those items are Chernobyl reactor 4 hot, but still, not very healthy i guess…

  31. Crash Nebula on September 3, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Try the banana

  32. john dalton on September 3, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    It was black

  33. GNU_Ninja on September 3, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Bananas are slightly radioactive too. Maybe try measuring the emmision from a banana 😊

  34. karen l Smith on September 3, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Doesn’t the smoke detector that is radioactive accumulate the particles in the home. Can people breathe it? If you put paper in front of the detector do the particles still go off to the sides?

  35. Против Глобал on September 3, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    What formula you use to convert counts per minute to uR/h?

  36. André Ferreira on September 3, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Top!

  37. KarbineKyle on September 3, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Nice! What models/calibers are those watches? I have quite a few radium watches; mostly Soviet watches with radium. It looks like you have 2 Маяк (Mayak) watches and a Победа (Pobeda) watch. If so, then I have that one with the black dial, with the white track that goes around (except at the 6 o’clock position). Also, those americium-241 sources are "sealed sources". They won’t come apart unless you really grind or file them up. The Am-241 is pressed between thin gold foil.

  38. Scandinavian Tiger on September 3, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Taka otazocka, ak polozim na detektor koure, alebo do tesne blizkosti nej nejaky predmet, a ponecham ho tam delsi dobu, bude tenhle predmet pak take zdrojem radiace ? Ptam se, ponevac jsem mel na stole delsi dobu detektor a byl jsem liny vymenit baterii, a kolem jsem mel spoustu predmetu, napr i slunecni brile v tesne blizkosti…Nerad bych si dal zdroj nejaky radioaktivy na hlavu…dekuju za odpoved

  39. zulu flight on September 3, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Diode Gone Wild-Is it possible,that you show us the circuit diagram of you selfmade geiger counter? and also explain it?
    That would be really great.

  40. Rafa Salcini on September 3, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Schematics of your diy radioactive detector ??

  41. iProgramInCpp on September 3, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    What unit are you using? Micro sieverts per hour?

  42. Californium-252 on September 3, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Best isotope, ²⁴¹Am.

  43. Demisian on September 3, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    i love your accent <3

    that was cool

  45. Michael Sandoval on September 3, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    He died the next day of radioactive poisoning:-/

  46. Michael Fisher on September 3, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    They add uranium to Fiestaware to make it orange but add uranium to that jewellery and its green?!

  47. brickson98moto on September 3, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    For future reference, when you’re speaking in English, try to pronounce your words a little more clearly. I understand it’s not your first language, but you were a bit hard to understand in this interesting video.

  48. Buff Barnaby on September 3, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Holy hell my fingers fell off

    I was thinking that you are saying "ringen" but you was saing roentgen

  50. Anna Paulinovna on September 3, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    my surname is thorium because my father is thorium mining engineer.
