In approx 1.5 months Im off to South America and am slowly gathering photography accessories from the studio. One item I have always taken on trips both domestic and abroad is the staticmaster brush.
I rarely read the fine print and its gonna bite me. Evidently, the staticmaster contains POLONIUM in potentially lethal doses!
I have been carrying this frickin thing like a tooth brush on all my domestic and foreign travels. Shit - it is radioactive material.
Being of southern Italian decent, my wife is always kidding me that I look like a terrorist. I always make sure that I speak with my southwestern American accent for security personnel.
I have traveled in the South Pacific, the U.S, Europe, and South America, through every type screening possible and never has this been an issue.
Any of you who are not terrorists want to buy a vintage staticmaster brush? No dirty bombs accepted although I may consider a dirty lens.
Please PM me at GBush@fbi.org
Seriously though, how should I dispose of this thing?
