When I told Matt this, he said, "Was it really that bad?" Yeah, it kinda was. It's not for everyone. Some people do very well. But my skin was not happy, and it rebelled. I still have the burn mark, though it's faded quite a bit.
I recently found a little green glass vase in my parents' garage. It's from my grandfather's collection of antiques. It turns out it's vaseline glass, aka uranium glass. It glows under ultraviolet light. It's radioactive. Not dangerous, because I guess it's only beta particles. I will keep it like a talisman.
