I've been saying since yesterday morning that soooooo many people were going to get psychosomatic symptoms and perpetuate the fear mongering.
I'd like to state again that there have been NUMEROUS impartial experts who keep saying that the radiation will more than likely not carry as far as
everyone thinks it will and that comparisons to Chernobyl in the fallout are inaccurate. Graphite will carry radioactive particles MUCH farther than
what will happen should there be fall out from Japan.
Stop thinking about it people, back away from your computer, turn off the news for a few hours, have a drink, listen to some tunes, read a cheery
book, go see a movie (preferably not Battle: LA (haha) and you'll see...you'll feel much better
I love your attitude! Refreshing on ATS!
Again - this is just a call out - like a research tool - to see how many other people out there feel as crappy as we do today. It is not meant to be
Since I don't believe everything I'm told in the main media good or bad about what we can't see here. I wanted to call out and see what ATSers could
tell me first hand. That's all
Oh, i don't believe everything I hear in the media either...and it goes both ways...I don't believe all of the good that;s said and i don't believe
all of the conflicting doom and gloom that gets said either. However what irritates me more than trying and filter through what the media and/or the
governments are saying (which i do agree that some things are not adding up biut I don't believe it's to the scale that some people think) is
listening to the epic predictions of SEVERE consequences that this will have on all of us when are not weighing both sides of the facts. People want
to listen to the worst and get all hyped up and take their iodine and bunker down and all this when we're not even SURE how much radiation is going
to drift aross IF ANY. Again, there's been a lot of EXPERTS that yes, are concerned for the people of Japan, who have said that the particles will not
likely carry this far and if they do it's very likely we won't have any huge worry.
Whenever I bring this up it gets knocked down again but I'm just saying...if impartial experts (ones not even on news media rather but friends of
friends, or independent experts on line) are not that concerned about our well being then I'm sorry I refuse to panic over this yet. Sure, maybe it is
better to be safe than sorry but i won't whip myself or my family up into a state of panic so that I can be like everyone else and think of it as some
kind of divine intervention when it doesn't happen (not religious at all..no offence to you if you are but i think that would be a HUGE cop out and
people ignoring the facts).
If it happens, well #...it happens.
If it doesn't...awesome...life goes on.
Quite frankly I am more concerned with all of these chain natural disasters than nuclear meltdown almost 6,000 miles away
also i don't think this thread is a fear mongering thing...it's as you said...a question. There's other threads that i think are straight out ultimate
panic mode "we have to pray for the best right now or we're all screwed, you have three days to get out and waste all your money on evacuating on
short notice incase something that might never come happens"
