X-Rays Shoot Out Of Scotch Tape. Seriously.

In a development that can only be met with a puzzled "WTF," researchers at UCLA have discovered that peeling a roll of Scotch tape emits rapid pulses of significant X-ray radiation. Let me just repeat that: unrolling Scotch tape = X-rays. No need to fear casual tape-peeling, though, as X-rays are only created when the tape is unraveled in a vacuum chamber.

Apparently, enough X-rays were created to develop a fuzzy X-ray image of a researcher's thumb. Further research into this... technology... is needed; it could one day mean inexpensive and/or mobile X-ray machines. I don't really know what else to say about this.
