A Canadian actress with the name of a French radio station photoshopped onto her tank top is a reason to vacation in Bulgaria?

Remember folks, when crap got so slimy that the KGB wouldn't touch it they had no problems getting the Bulgarians to do their dirty(ist) work.

I remember years ago seeing a story on TV about what a toxic hellhole Romania was. There were reports about kids being born blind and with cancer and all types of scary crap. Some of the factory towns were just gray toxic dumps.

Romania is pretty bad when it comes to cancer rates but so is most of Eastern Europe. I'm not sure if it stems from Chernobyl meltdown or the lack of regulation when it comes to all types of toxic waste but it's pretty bad.


As far as the headline goes, back when I lived in Romania and even until mid 2000s (I left in 94), Bulgaria was much cheaper to vacation if you wanted to go to the beach. I don't know if their tourism has taken a huge hit since joining the EU though. Both Romania and Bulgaria got a really bad deal when they joined the EU and even the strict regulation of allowing people from those countries to work in the rest of the EU were not allowed to expire as they were supposed to in 2013.

Did anyone else notice the picture referring to "North American pollution" was STEAM coming off the top of a nuclear reactor cooling tower?

Yes.

CSB:  Our high school band would take a yearly trip to to Cedar Point, OH.  On the way, you could kinda see the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station.  I would hear "OMG, look at all that radiation!".  I was a huge nuclear technology buff at the time, with plans to become a nuclear physicist (changed plans though), and tried to tell them it was just steam, but to no avail.

This is why it always worries me when so-called journalists try to get into the science-y stuff.  They simply don't know enough, and then the people reading the article get lots of bad info.

CSB:  My high school band also took a yearly trip to Cedar Point (ah, the A.P. Hello Kitty toy, such memories).  I don't remember seeing the nuclear power plant, though.

We came down from Michigan, and for some reason always got off the freeway and went through some Northern Ohio back road (appears from a map to by OH-579)

We came down from the Metro Detroit area, but we took highways almost the entire way there

I went on a skiing holiday in Bulgaria years ago. Skiing was great. Food was terrible.
