Moscow police officers have detained a schoolteacher after 14 kg of radioactive material was discovered in his garage.

The police cited the man as saying that he had used the substances to “irradiate” a friend who wanted to become immortal.

He reportedly said the friend had even traveled to the site of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster “to expose himself to radiation and become immortal.”

The radioactive material was apparently collected by the teacher from known burial sites and other “special places”.

    I hope he wasn’t a science teacher.

    He would have done better to irradiate a ‘spider’ and then made it bite his friend. Less material, less danger.
