Today I spent all afternoon on a mandatory class for new employees at the FHCRC: Radiation Safety Basics for Radiation Workers (part I).
Among other things, I learned that fear is a gift (thank you), that running away may not always be the best answer (really?), that Americans are lazy (I knew that!), that I mustn't store my beer keg in the lab freezer (uh-oh) and that 1 mCi is not the same as 1 MCi (jaw dropped).
I can't wait until Thursday when I get four more hours of this!
