NOOOOOOOO!!!

OK, this is the end.....no point continuing to live.

Beer is radioactive...

Life has no more meaning.

Do I treat Glocks like I treat my lawn mowers?  No, I treat them worse.  I treat my defensive weapons like my fire extinguishers and smoke detector - annual maintenance and I expect them to work when needed

Yeah, but looking at that chart, you get more radiation from a banana.  That would probably have been a more interesting comparison for Japan.  Rather than how many banana equivalents, how many keg equivalents of radiation... :)

Lots of people are thinking...Radiation - I can't see it and the names sound scary and people can die or get cancer from it...

Meanwhile our government agencies are squandering this opportunity to educate people. If we had a decent civil defense agency surely they would realize that education is the foundation of dealing with radiologic incidents and be doing something to educate the public. Maybe I missed the educational effort - did anyone else see it?

Nah.  Here's how they think:  Actually giving people useful, accurate information about radiation risk might frighten them.  Better to keep them ignorant - so that if we ever do have a real threat, we can have insane panics to go along with it.

We're having insane panics now.  Yesterday we had at least a half-dozen people come into the ED wanting to be treated for radiation exposure from Japan....

Here is an excellent source of information on the entire incident at the Japanese nuclear facility including details on the design of the reactors:

hmmm...I know of a facility to house those folks in....the nut house where I occasionally work...hahahah!  We got one now that will just start screaming ....I'm having a heart attack...and he grabs his chest and falls down...it's an atttention getter for a mentally ill person....and the really dumb part is, he's a dnr....so if he is having one...there is not one dang thing we can do...so we just walk away...something is really wrong and disturbing with that picture...
