Stephen, fellow time nuts,

[DISCLAIMER] I should really know better than to attempt internet
discussions or comments first thing after waking up. Didn't stop me
today though (oops)

So...

Did I just make a fool of myself?

Was I mistaken?

I tweeted the author of this article, trying to point out that (as I
understand) "radioactive decay" is not relevant in any way for cesium
frequency standard/reference thingies:

If someone more authoritative and/or experienced (or at least more
awake) wanted, please let me know if I was confused and such
