It is none of these either, although you do need to be accustomed to absolute darkness like a vampire for it to work correctly.

Neither of those either. This item does not take pictures, but it does show you something.

Somehow i doubt that very many people will buy toy versions of something that lets you watch radioactive decay in action (or very many kids today who will watch it for that matter).

But he's right. Proof: Google Image Result for http://www.dkimages.com/discover/previews/889/50020034.JPG

Also

You could have just blurred the writing enough to be unreadable... rather than taking it off completely...
