(Author’s note: I was going to write last weekend, but I was in the middle of being sick from Corona-chan. So instead, I am here today, with a different story! Enjoy!)
by Miles H. Rost
An innocent looking tool shed, with 9 blocks surrounding it evacuated for cause.
They had said that the only reason anyone noticed was due to the two neighborhood cats glowing in the dark a day before being found dead.
The young man who owned the tool shed said he was simply finishing his last project for his boy scout badge.
A fully operational nuclear reactor, small in scale but not in punch, was not something that the people of the neighborhood imagined they’d find.
The Department of Energy loaded the shed up, contents and all. The boy got his badge.
Shed the load
Wow, that’s creativity for you. Glad he got his badge.
I wonder how he got all the components to create one in the first place 🤔
Old medical equipment. The linked story of the Nuclear Boy Scout pretty much tells it.
A truly haunting little tale. Sounds like something I would have done as a child if I had had a shed. Instead, I earned the funds to buy an Advanced Life Support Squad for my hometown as my Girl Scout Senior Gold status.
He really deserves the badge for that!
And then he was probably hired by the NRC. Scary good story.
What a great story! Creative and scary 🙂

Not sure I’d give the kid a merit badge or lock him up.
