(Daily Star)   Chernobyl secret documents released for first time in 34 years from the world's biggest-ever nuclear accident show that the Soviet cover-up was bigger than thought. It happened before the time they said it did and had already spread across Europe (possible nsfw content on page)   (dailystar.co.uk) divider line

But a sea of grown-ass adults can't do the same? Covid wouldn't have been so horrible. Chernobyl wouldn't have been so horrible. Pretty much every major incident past and present wouldn't have been so horrible. Pride is a weak source of vigor.

As far as trump is concerned:

His primary rules are: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

/Sadly, it's actually not a quote about trump... It was the psychological analysis the US wrote about Hitler.

Iczer: Kit Fister: ObscureNameHere: The person who released these better hope they don't get a S.T.A.L.K.E.R on the Metro...

I'm replaying Stalker via Call of Chernobyl, so I'm getting a kick, etc. etc.

I have at least one of that series on Steam and can't play it for very long. Radiation is one of those things that scares the ever loving shiat out of me. I know it's everywhere in minute levels and isn't always lethal, but the way it kills just completely farks with me. About 30 minutes into the game and I get to an anomalous zone and that Geiger counter starts rapidly ticking away...


It's only 3.6 Roentgen. And there's no graphite on the ground.

Maybe I'm wrong, but wouldn't a good cover-up preclude that?

No shiat.

The record of national governments (all of them, not just Russia and China and us) being truthful about disasters is not confidence-inspiring.

What I've learned from "9/11," Katrina, the current disaster of an administration is, whatever is going on, assume the government knew about it before it became public, and it's worse than they are letting on.

In the aftermath of Chernobyl's Reactor 4 exploding on April 26, 1986, thousands of people died from radiation poisoning or conditions related to radiation,

Stopped reading about here. There is nothing like thousands of people dead from radiation poisoning or conditions related to radiation.

There are about 60 real deaths and about as many projections with any number from low hundreds to tens of thousands, depending on which propaganda outlet one chooses to believe.

No, I'm pretty sure we all knew he was a black man who wore a tan suit a couple times and liked Dijon mustard on his burgers.

I think we all know that one day a similar report will come out regarding how our government farked up the response to this pandemic. I remember when I was younger and everyone used to mock the communist countries for having such malicious and self serving leaders, and all those party members just going along with the leader and screwing over the people. It makes me think of some Bob Dylan lyrics.
