When you sit down for Thanksgiving dinner this week, it may be a good occasion to contemplate how your Thanksgiving meal may play out next year. Close your eyes and imagine roast-turkey rubbed with butter and iridescent sage. Piping hot from the kitchen comes, oh my, grandma's savory steamed topsoil with pureed plutonium and americium. Yum! Smell the lemon-poached chlorine. Or the tarragon-mustard phosgene! "Please pass the blue-cheese cesium-137 salad." "Do you want more of the green beans with mushrooms, cream and strontium-90?" "Is that cranberry cobalt-60 compote?" "There's no slow-sautéed europium-155 and turnips left. I didn't get any!"
