National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation - Radioactive Area
When the Griswolds first go to visit there stupid cousin's, theres a radioactive sign hanging on some fence. Later the cousin with the plate in his head tells Clark that they tested H-bombs on the land where they were at. H-bombs are not radioactive, so there would be no need for a radioactive sign there.

We also need to take into account that Eddie is a complete moron. How could he tell the difference :)?

I would like to point out the H-Bombs are extremly radio active. I am not sure what type of bomb this person was thinking of, but any type of bomb that uses nuclear fusion, is going to put out an extream amount of radiation. just an FYI Bryan

Fusion is not the combination of hydrogen and oxygen. It is in fact the fusion of isotopes of hydrogen. Usually tritium or deuterium. Fusion as we know of it releases huge amounts of Gamma radiation as well as incidental fallout in the form of irradiated materials related to the fission trigger of the device. Additionally radioactive debris is produced as everyday earth air and salts etc etc. are exposed to huge amounts of neutron radiation well. Incidentally the former Soviet Union, The United States and Great Britian had agreed to stop performing above ground nuclear fusion burst testing specifically to eliminate fallout of radioactive materials.Your country was a big reason this happened. But wasn't the look cool on Clarks face when he saw the chicken. I lamao.

H-Bombs are indeed very radioactive.

Actually, the reason he can cook chicken on a rock is not because it is radio-active, but because the outdoor temperature and sun is so hot that it heats up the rock.

I'm definitely not an expert on radiation, but something must have 'landed' on Eddie's land to enable him to cook his steaks on a plain old rock, wouldn't you agree?

Both of you seem to be confused. First off, the h-bomb in question takes an amound of hydrogen and oxygen, and combines them, releasing large amounts of energy. This action takes place all the time in clouds, etc all over the place, and we are not dying of radiation poisoning. Secondly, fusion releases no radiation, unless the things being fused themselves were radioactive. However, fission does release radiation, due to the fact that the substance is both radioactive before it is fissioned off, as well as after, when it is split to a lower grade element. I'm not sure of the ignition source for a non-existent H-bomb, but it could be a small nuclear charge, which wouldn't have much of an effect on the area around it, and the radiation released from it would dissipate rapidly due to air currents and other things.
