If you don't smell ozone, the radiation won't kill you before next week.

There is a maintenance tool known as a radiological isolator whose internal buffer is a rubber tube. Xenonburnout should be familiar with it. Replacement tubes are in the navy supply system. When you order them, what you get is a Trojan brand unlubricated condom. We might have gone through a handful a decade, but they only came in bags of 100. By the time we would need one again, the leftovers from the last time one was ordered would be dry rotted. Therefore, there was often a large supply of unwanted, unused condoms collecting dust and taking up valuable storage space. In today's navy, perhaps they have another way of disposing of them?
