(I am in an honors physical science class and we are looking at nuclear reactors as part of our nuclear unit. We are discussing where they store the waste.)

Teacher: “…And they store the waste in giant sized swimming pools.”

Student: “Wait, do they go swimming in the pools?”

Me: “Yeah, [Student], they go swimming in those pools.”

Student: “Wouldn’t that be dangerous?”
