Wow. How about Jesus? Dont see him on your list

That is the kicker... Many archeologists have found evidence that a man did exist during that time frame that could be jesus (real name or not).



There werem't any Mexican back then.


I am so going to hell for laughing till stupid at that...

oh and you are an oh so cruel nuclear nut job....;)

I am a radiation maxi pad. I will wear a thick fleece jacket and run around outside with my arms spread out, a Dirt Devil in each hand.


Arigato very much.

Ivo Shandor: Bennie Crabtree: I don't see "Ci" on that chart.

"Ci" is the symbol for "curie".


Awesome. Now, I need to go find out what a Curie does. I imagine that if my next door neighbour eats a Ci of radioactive fish, some of her poop will be radioactive, get in our water table, and eventually spread all over the farking place. Not to mention the Ci of radioactive fish fillet material left on her kitchen counter, touched by her kids, who will put their grubby mutating radioactive hands on my car, will snot their radioactive snot on their sleeve and spread it all over their grade four classroom, and generally kill us all, because a Ci of radioactive material will be radioactive for a thousand farking years, no matter where it is. Which is why the Pacific Ocean is pretty much the most frightening death-dealing thing on earth to irradiate. Well, actually, my neighbour's grade four kids are. They have a lot of snot and they have ADD so they'll kill us all because of their love of fishsticks, I'm sure.

"The emission of radioactive substances from the stricken plant is about 10 percent of the amount that had been detected at Chernobyl, the agency said on Tuesday.

However, an official at Tokyo Electric and Power (TEPCO) said later Tuesday that they are concerned that the radiation leakage could eventually exceed the 1986 disaster.

"The radiation leak has not stopped completely and our concern is that it could eventually exceed Chernobyl," a TEPCO official told reporters."
Link (new window)

So it sounds like the Japanese nuclear agency is trying to downplay the rating upgrade, while TEPCO officials are now breaking down and saying that this could end up being the worst nuclear disaster in history.

Human civilization has been propped up by many premises, one being that we always do something dumb before we learn from our mistakes. From the first guy who ate poisonous food to warn the tribe of things not to eat, to the guy who found out that having dead people/shiat near your drinking water will make you sick.

Sadly nuclear power is just another notch on the wall for us, my question is how many more nuclear problems do we need to have before people learn that the only way to utilize something capable of killing people on a mass scale is to keep it the fark away from the masses, especially if you have your plant near a densely populated area?

Just imagine right now we're struggling with nuclear power, so you can only see the dilemma when we embark on some Star Trek shiat with matter and anti-matter.

itazurakko: cluelessnewbie: To put this in context, there were local elections in Japan just this last weekend. I'm not saying there's a connection, but a lot of Japanese suspect there is.

What? The elections were scheduled long before the earthquake even happened.

Mind, certain routs may have been affected.


No, the timing of the announcement is suspicious coming so soon after the election and after it has been widely known for weeks that the scale of this disaster surpassed level 5 incidents like Three Mile island.

itazurakko: ThunderPelvis: That depends on your reaction. If your reaction is, "Wow, that really sucks and its a serious nuclear environmental disaster and major problem for those unfortunate people who lived inside the exclusion zone and it will take years and years to clean up, and a full cleanup may even be impossible in our lifetimes," then I don't think you're overreacting. If your reaction is, "ZOMFG, RUN FOR THE HILLS!! EVACUATE JAPAN NOW!1!! I LIVE IN WITCHITA, BUT WHERE ARE MY IODINE TABLETS!!11!" then I think you're overreacting.

This. No one is denying that there is a problem and it's a helluva mess. But it's not the whole damn country, and it's not even Tokyo.


I've figured out the arguing style of some people around here. They claim that others are saying "OMGTHEWORLDISENDING" and then overstate the shiat out of something in terms that are pretty obviously not true, when no one actually said anything of the sort, and then they tell them how full of shiat they are for overstating everything.

It works really well if the person who made the original statement only posts once or twice and doesn't dig in for an extended hyperbole fight, like the hyperbole fighters do. Dude, you're arguing with yourself.

So old, so tired.

B) I get the feeling that you'd be pretty happy if Tokyo were a museum right now, because that would fit the horrible narrative that you try to construct in every one of these threads.


I don't see any name calling there, just some simple facts.

If it makes anyone in Japan feel better, he's obsessed with cigarette smoking giving guys ED also from the threads I've seen him in. So, nuclear power and flaccid penises seem to be his obsessions. Even in Japan that's probably a little weird.

ThunderPelvis: bigdavediode: nstoppiello: I think denying is equally as bad as overstating the problem. It's worse than it was expected to be, but not as bad as it could've been.

The only thing that made it better than it could have been was the prevailing winds at the time. If the wind direction had been different Tokyo would have been a museum.

I propose that we allow Japan to recolonize the declining cities of the USA. Start with Las Vegas, and throw in maybe Detroit and Fresno.

bigdavediode: Yes you did, and you probably need x-rays for all the spinal column damage that you did there. "Nobody said X." "Yes, a lot of people said X." "Oh, well not on the news they didn't."


Sorry. My line on this has been the same from the beginning, and that is to shake my head at all of the hysteria in the English language media and the US in particular implying that the Japanese news is purposely lying in some grand conspiracy, that they are calling things "safe," that no one is taking measurements, that Tokyo will be in ruins soon, that people are on the verge of dying of radiation poisoning. THAT is what I have a problem with. Because it's crazy.

Add to that all the breathless reporting which seems to have no clue where anything is in relation to anything else.

Tokyo very much is not a part of the "disaster area," nor does it consider itself such. Never mind the entire other half of the country.

Ivo Shandor: stillfeelgone: Why does no one ever mention the radioactive unit BEQ (banana equivalent units)?



Based on this morning's sample, it would be a Twinkie banana ... half a mile long, weighing approximately eight thousand tons.


That's a big banana

You know he said 35 feet long and 600 lbs. But there's no way a twinkie can be 35 feet long and only weigh 600 lbs. It's physically impossible, I don't care how light n fluffy they are.

Wow, Corvus, you sure have a shaky grip on the facts. Despite all that has gone wrong, there is NO danger of a major radiation release from the Japanese plants. The situation IS under control. The WORST case is that the plants will be wrecked and safely decommissioned. If anything, the events we are seeing is the best advertisement for the safety of these plants you could ask for.

In short, you are a nut.


Hmmm really?

Essentially what JSTACAT does is take the absolute worst possible scenario and pushes it as if it were the most likely. "

===============================================================
Now look, i didn't mean to slap y'all around but,
until the denile is shoved out of the way, who can think up what to do about this?

Yes it matters what everyone thinks, the Earth itself is in trouble.
Git off you complacent selfish buts and start taking this seriously.
Get in touch with legislators, make sure people in your world are informed.
Take simple steps that could pay off later, keep you out of hospital.
Like, maybe quit cutting lawn & etc if fallout increases.
own vitamins and minerals.
Get staples that are in supply chain now, which are still clean, etc.

All these folks here should have known from the start that man can not control Gennie or Her Piles.
enough about theoretically safe and all that dooky.

nothing real is gonna get done until we all feel the threat personally.
Ok?
I hate what man has done to himself and earth,
nothing can be done about the radiation,

lets see if we can beat the devil to the other ones, and bury them properly.
We need to prepare, overtime, all of us.

Fark ye if you don't take this seriously.

so 3 is a seven, two is a six and one is a five... that's an 18 dood
My understanding is that the sand-bluff readings of the ocean a mile south of the plant have passed 150miliseverts per hour.

This means that Tokyo bay will be unusable within a year.
Japan's stint as a nation has ended due to incompetence, secrecy and their inability to admit failure.

MrSteve007: Knara: As said many times, Chernobyl is a totally different situation.

This is not Chernobyl. This is a nuclear accident that was serious

The funny/sad part is that now even TEPCO says this may become worse than Chernobyl in total radioactive release - yet the fark experts are still in denial.


No, what people who have studied the issue will understand is that the severity of Chernobyl, given the massive acute amount and type of radioactive particles released, will far exceed the severity of the Fukushima accident by orders of magnitude. No one is saying this accident is not serious, but I stand by my analysis that this accident is not currently nor will it ultimately be ruled as bad as Chernobyl. The previous statement will be true even if the integral radioactive release at the Fukushima reactor is counted higher than the integrated radioactive release of Chernobyl. Why? Not all radioactive isotopes or associated radiation present the same biological or environmental hazard. Most (not all) of the released radioactive particles are or will be from short lived particles. The Chernobyl release was a much more dangerous mixture of isotopes released from a catastrophic explosion of the entire reactor. Of course there will be many who will argue the opposite, and if you dont take the time to research the issue deeply you will ultimately choose to believe what you wanted to believe from the start.

However, it does not matter what people on a forum choose to believe. Time will reveal the truth and even then people will argue about it.

2011-04-12 12:10:10 AM  

zzrhardy: shower_in_my_socks: For another comparison, level 5, which is what Fukushima was at previously, is what Three Mile Island was.


So the timeline of events, roughly:

1. It's not bad, we're putting the fire out, don't worry
2. Why don't we quietly evacuate the surrounding area while telling people it's not a big deal
3. Small radioactive cloud heading for the U.S., but not enough to worry about
4. Radioactive water IS leaking into the ocean, but it'll dilute, so don't worry
5. OHMYGODCHERNOBYL

It's a 7, but it's not a Chernobyl by orders of magnitude. As others have pointed out, Chernobyl went off the charts.


So you're telling me that Chernobyl would have been Over 9000?

2011-04-12 12:11:29 AM  

PlatinumDragon: I clearly underestimated the amount of decay heat possible, and the length of time it could potentially persist without consistent coolant flow (alternatively, how long a reactor needs to be actively cooled before it can be safely "left alone").

I don't think I'm the only one.


Quite frankly I think we were given bad information to work with.

Though this bullshiat would not be happening if the Japanese had bought our farking CANDU Reactors!
