I Think I May Have a Heart Attack and Die of Not-Surprise

Guess what they found in a dump. Go on, guess.

Whatever you guessed, you're probably wrong. They just found the first batch of weapons-grade plutonium made in a dump, in a beaten up old safe in Connecticut. Edit: Totally screwed this up. It was at the Hanford site, NOT Hartford. Thanks, Charlie!

What else would Uncle Sam do with radioactive, fissionable material? The only surprise for me was that it wasn't in New Jersey.

I think it was Hanford, WA, not Hartford, CT.

It's definitely the Hanford site, not Hartford. Reading comprehension for the win! Thanks for the catch.
