Just thought I'd pop in and say something real quick instead of lurking,[&:] so here's something funny I found while browsing away at the other section of ebay..
Other bottles that is, and other is right.
Got a little money stock piled for a rainy day so I might just make the opening bid..
Just graduated from High school today, and it has been emotional, but this really made me smile [:D]
have a nice early morning or late evening folks..(depending on where you are)

Poor fellow got nuked. Of course this wise guy thinks offering a larger size makes an already altered bottle worth more. Let's pray that most people have wised up by now!

Just to be crystal clear, as I have not been exposed to these, are you all saying there are no authentic GREEN Bromos? I am certainly familiar with most nuked items but have not heard about other colors such as cobalt blue being nuked. I'm not argueing here, just looking for info.

I have seen talk on the forum of these being nuked. I am too wondering where this theory originated. I am familiar with the nuking process and hqve seen some odd colors but if his offerings are altered,I don't believe its by UV. There are green bromos and have dug a few ,bit they have all been b.i.m. variants.

This is an interesting topic...I have a question for you though. Irradiating with UV light (is that the correct wave) is easy enough. How would they be going about irradiating with Gamma?

Many food prep facilities and hospitals use Gamma Sterilizers Melinda, it's easy for many people to gain access I'd imagine...
