Yes, that says RADIOACTIVE

Here's my arm, complete with the 4th, successful IV, and the nice radioactive injection I just got. The nurse is flushing with saline. Ah, all the familiar terms and experiences.

For those unfamiliar (like I was), the injection does not fill entire container labelled "radioactive," just the syringe sticking out the top. The container is big, however, because it has half-inch thick lead walls to protect the rest of us from the contents of the syringe.

Well, I'm glad to have that cleared up. I thought perhaps, with that amount of radioactive substance, they'd be giving our Calin superpowers. Like, the ability to melt metal with her eyes. Or scale buildings like Spiderman. The latter would be cool, of course, but the former might be tricky. Like, if she accidentally unleashes her power every time she sneezes or something...
