Why are they warning people to stay indoors? wouldn't radiation vapors just seep inside anyway? would not a full evacuation be more protection to get those people as far away as possible from the radiation


Staying indoors will reduce your exposure to irradiated particulates. The key word being "reduce." Going outdoors is apparently not a good idea at this time!


Yes, it's probably too late for some of those people to go outdoors and leave the affected area safely without heavy radiation exposure. They waited too long for the government warn them.

or is it 3 strikes and were out


let's say that there is a bigger problem, if the government of Japan or USA says that there is a big threat with radiation, it would cause a mass hysteria, right?


yes, some people would panic.... so it makes you wonder if they would be honest about it, or how it effects the rest of the world.

it looks like the only way to know is if your hair starts falling out, which creates a problem for middle aged men or wayne rooney who are starting to receed.

There are two important prayers in Japanese-

The Prayer of Amida Buddha:



Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu...


and the Shinto prayer of thanks to the Universal Spirit:



Arigatou Gozaimasu, Tenchi Kane No Kami...


Prayers of all faiths, even just scientific good thoughts (like mine) are about all we can do for now;
Heartfelt thanks to everyone on this thread--

I will check back in tomorrow.

I have lost all faith in Christianity due to my increasing need for scientific information and some life experiences but I will say that that since the travesty began my thoughts have went out to the Japanese. I tear up seeing them on TV crying and weeping and cant help feeling horrible being able to lay in my warm bed every night knowing that there are 1000's cold and suffering.

I cannot express in words what I really feel inside but if there is a God... Please help them and give them the strength they need to pull through this and prevail.

Again it is proven so well, that the stewards of the world are nothing more than a bunch of bungling morors, walking around saying how smart they are, and when really they are lucky if they are able to properly wipe their own arse.

So I have a very simple question.

All these redundant containments were created. BUT...if there isn't anything that can contain it after it goes into a meltdown, then why in the world is it even built?

Talk about a big game of russian roullette.

My heart and prayers go out to the people of Japan, and all life forms that are and will be affected by this terrible incident. This is one of saddest moments in history, One that for sure will never be forgotten.

I found this link that has official reports World Nuclear News for more info visit the link.

This world is officially cashed in.

There were all sorts of warnings and signs that people could have used to have awakened. But, people kept listening to the droning of the skeptic..."Nothing to see here, nothing out of the ordinary. Its preposterous to think otherwise, in fact, its preposterous to think."

Good job A-holes, You've helped to expedite the speed of this sinking ship.

It's an invisible enemy. Radiation has a really big problem with our biological functioning, and essentially halts it. You could be severely affected and not know the worst effects until years down the line.

The radiation you're working with (in the case of the very, very brave Chernobyl souls) who were having to shovel debris from a roof that had so much radiation it caused their hands to cramp up, like arthritis. It caused intense heat and sweating.

When you hear suggestions of taking iodine to prepare for nuclear fallout and the like, it beefs up your ability to resist the radioactive material that goes to your thyroid and causes cancer and defects.

It's really nasty stuff, and people from Chernobyl are still affected. Radiation can cause intense skin burns, loss of hair, cancers... but that's generally reserved to massive amounts of radiation over a very short period of time, like in the cases of Chernobyl recovery workers (who were exposed to more radiation than you can fathom -- it's sickening).

Here's an article that will put the side effects into light with the recent developments:
Health effects from radiation

Think about all the nasty stuff that the sun would do to you if its rays weren't filtered through our atmosphere and all that... directly going into your lungs and organs, and how that would immediately effect you and for the rest of your life.

OK this right here - scariest post I have seen in a while. That right there means that they don't want photos of fires and smoke.

If you are enclosed in a plane, are you at risk of radiation or explosion if not flying directly over the plant?

Am I wrong or can that rule only be to protect us from the truth?

The Japanese NEED to get those Fuel Rods as Close to absolute Zero as Possible.

Then on a Quantum Level things should slow down enough to encapsulate the Rods and Bury them Deep, Never to be seen again!

Main Issue is Remote Controlled Robotics/Mechanisms have to be able to pull the rods and with stand the extreme temperature.
