at least it's better than my other hobby. If they try to dump my collection of geiger counters and radioactive samples its likely to set of radiation alrams at the dump and result in a big bill for the clean-up ;-)

The true report would not be correct without a traceability certificate and confidence interval for the TOD indication, motivated by the measurement inaccurancies and established TDEV measures.
Naturally the next of kin doesn't really care, as they now can dump all the junk collected in the basement. The real mourning of the deceased from fellow time-nuts comes when they realize just how much of precious gear has been lost forever.
