    Question Cody. If TVclip were to shut down tomorrow, what would you do to seek work? Or what would be your dream job outside of the youtube style work? Or if you do have a job outside of youtube, what is it? Love the videos man. I always took a liking to chemistry, though I never thought to get into it like this.

    why the fuck do you just keep sending uranium to different forms of uranium compounds I have no idea what the point of this is

    I've learnt a lot from you Cody. But I've never tried out any or the experiments, I live in a terraced house. With a 20*20ft garden. The only thing I'd get away with is mixing vinegar and bicarbonate soda

    Dude you need to be way more carefull with handling the hydrofluoric acid... that shit will kill you with only a few drops on your skin. And get yourself a magnetic stirrer/heatplate pleas. Makes things easyer and way more safer.

    cody i have a question,if i may. How do you deal with the clean up? i would think the nuclear material would be left in the glass containers,do you just wash them out with nitric acid? and if so isn't some of the radiation left with in the matrix of the glass itself ?

    You can buy uranium metal - I have a big chunk. No need to do it this way. It is an alpha emitter. The slightest amount of that ore dust in your lungs will stay there forever and emit alpha particles. Get regular screenings for lung cancer from now on forever.

    Couldn't you simply use a magnet to pull out the steel bearings and leave the uranium in there since uranium is not magnetic?

    I honestly don't know much about radioactive rocks. That being said, I wouldn't want to piss Cody off in the near future cause I think the probability of him turning green and expanding into a hulking monster has increased considerably since this video was released.

    Cody you should do an X-Ray assay of the liquid waste in order to see what was really in all of it.

    You should've been using a full face industrial gas mask with a p3 filter on it at least that would give you protection and you can maybe find it it hard were store and on Amazon a NBC filter provides waaaay more protection than p3 filters but you can't just go and buy it on Amazon
