There's a story from the UK. After the first plutonium for bombs had been manufactured at a huge cost, with great security, it was then transported from Windscale to Aldermaston (reactor to bomb factory).
On an Army truck a simple Bedford, with a driver and a Corporal. No other security at all.


If the Coke guy indeed borrowed the hose from an aspirator, then plutonium had also gone down the drain by way of that hose.

That must have been one hot septic tank.
