I don't know how effective this stunt actually turned out to be, some strange looks and confused expressions on the faces of passers by. Unless your
informed of what’s going on, or that its even a demonstration in the first place, otherwise it may as well be a television advert for all you
Green campaigners terrified shoppers with a flash mob stunt where hundreds of supporters pretended to drop dead to simulate a nuclear radioactivity
disaster. The demonstrators - spread out all over Zurich in Switzerland - all collapsed at exactly 12.15pm yesterday as office workers were rushing
through the city on lunch breaks.
It would have had to have been a situation in which they were exposed to over 1,000 rems of radiation in an instance resulting in immediate death.
Anything between 600 - 1000 causes weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and then 10 days of horrific agony leading up to your death which would make
for a somewhat different demonstration indeed!
What in the hell is the point? We all know if this were reality, we'd all be dead, so whats the point? Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to scare
the crap out of passers by that havn't a clue what is going on. No offence to you, OP, just the exercise itself is a bit on the needlessly strange
I agree entirely, I'm sure there are allot of other; more pressing issues on the proverbial demonstration list that should be ticked off before we
get to "What if there's a nuclear radioactivity disaster?" This is more in the realms of a television advert or some you've been framed stunt.
This is idiotic. If there were a nuclear attack then well everyone would be more concerned about the fireball, the heat, the loss of power and
communication rather than the radiation. If it was a "lasting effect" message then they wouldn't all die at the same time.
This would, though, be an effective message on biological or chemical based weapons.
Awesome, wish I'd been there to see that, would've been cool!!!! I love theatrics. It's just too bad nobody told them that what actually happens in
a flash you're turned into a pile of ash, no dropping just burning quick from the inside out!
