Incorrigible Astronaut: staplermofo: FTFA: A Korean website assembled this image collectionThat explains that. God damn Koreans, let it go already.Seriously. We've got obvious issues with race over here, but I didn't realize how much the Koreans and Japanese hated each other until I went to an international electronics show in January. It's just as bad, if not worse in some ways.
Gleeman: neversubmit: BTW Fukushima wasn't fine before the disaster.citation_required.jpg
Rosyna: Thank you for finding an article that demonstrates how much radiation is required to create a genetic mutation. The Red Forest, according to that article, was one of the 5 most contaminated patches in Chernobyl and the extent of the damage is limpy saplings.In other words, radiation from the Japanese reactor is magnitudes too low to have any observable effect on the vegetation there. They just be trollin' in the original article..
Gleeman: radiumsoup: neversubmit: At least that can't happen here.The US Fears the World will Discover its Big Nuclear SecretAs Mitsuhei Murata, the former Japanese ambassador to Switzerland, said in August last year: "In the US there are 31 [sic] units the same type of that of Fukushima nuclear plant [23 are virtually identical to Fukushima]. So, if the accident be spread too far that really embarrasses the US. So that is why the crisis of Unit 4 has been toned down recently. The USA is actually the main reason."And they're all built right on the seashore in an earthquake zone, right? Because that's what we should be afraid of. If, you know, we should be afraid at all.And never mind that Fukishima was fine until the tsunami took out the backup generators. Or that the Japanese GE BWRs haven't been updated with additional vents like the US reactors were in the 90's.In either case his troll source is from an oil industry blog, so I suggest a grain of NaCl.
Pangit: [blu.stb.s-msn.com image 628x316]I have the strangest boner right now.
Monkeyhouse Zendo: This is a picture of a pre-Fukushima Japanese hornet.[top10hm.com image 640x511]Increased genetic diversity due to higher background radiation will only make them stronger. I welcome our giant hornet overlords./not how evolution works//but still fun to imagine
Rosyna: Where is all the deformed vegetation from Chernobyl or the atomic bombs?Vegetation has reclaimed chernobyl but I haven't seen mutations.

utah dude: Rapmaster2000: Kirzania: Rapmaster2000: but I'll take a Korean paper's muckraking of Japan with a grain of salf.Some of these pictures look rather ... old, so this. Also, I feel that the image of the "peaches with elephantiasis" is in some way NSFW.Specifically, the bicolor orange one struck me because I believe that is a rather common phenomenon explained by sunlight exposure. It appears someone forced it into such a perfect symmetry, but it's not something that requires a nuclear disaster to happen.isn't that called somaclonal variation? maybe kinetek can weigh in.

ekdikeo4: I'd love to see results of studies on that stuff.
