As Right As Rain

Rain water is about as radioactive as a tadpole! According to a recent study, that is. The results have shocked scientists, who previously believed that a single drop of rain water contained about the same amount of radiation as a blade of grass, or a marble.

The study hasn't been without its detractors though, with reports that a rival group, who had been hoping to prove the link between levels of radiation in rain and the prevalence of velcro, dramatically committed mass suicide in protest.

The result comes as good news for microwave manufacturers, who hope to one day harness the natural power of the rain to heat a cup of tea that you've left lying too long and want to drink instead of making another one.
