Thorium-232 has a half-life of 14.05 billion years, which---though it's about the age of the universe---is still apparently shorter than the half-life of this tedious thread.
@FilmOnly, when you fixate on minuscule risks that have virtually no chance of harming you, while you daily engage (I presume) in other activites that pose orders-of-magnitude higher risks to you without giving them a thought (you DO drive a car, no?), then, sorry, yes, that IS irrational. behavior.
Now, you are perfectly within your rights to engage in irrational behavior that doesn't harm others; but don't call it something it's not, and expect to go unchallenged.
Here expireth my half-life. I'm out.
