Hilarious guys, I know a few people who retained their mullets to this day, we call them "The Mullet Mafia".
I did find this on fish absorbing a large amount of radiation from Chernobyl:


Fish absorbed radioactive iodine very quickly but the levels decreased rapidly due to radioactive decay . Bioaccumulation of radioactive caesium along the aquatic food chain resulted in high concentrations in fish in some lakes as far away as Scandinavia and Germany. The levels of strontium-90 in fish did not lead to significant human exposure, particularly as it accumulates in bones rather than in edible parts.

Protect yourself by hiding in the very back of your cave and not coming out for at leats 12 years. Otherwise you will die!!!!!!!

your local on your avatar. And it's easy to laugh back at you.

I'm 37, I live in the UK & I remember Chernobyl very, very well. I was even sporting electric blue moonboots that day.

I reserve the right to call this ere thread fear mongering.


At this point, comparing the situation to Chernobyl is so absurd that I believe anyone doing so is either completely ignorant or deliberately dishonest.

dude, there's got to be a better way
to check for radiation than to drag out
my fishing pole and go fishing !!! lol

on 2nd thought, might not be too bad.
reminds me of that country song where
Paisley has to choose between his woman
and going fishing ........

"Well I'm gonna miss her ..... when I get home"

Yes people are mistaking "iodide" with "iodine". I stocked up on water, apples, oranges, and other food for a couple of months yesterday, I think I'm going to go back and get a little more today.


Iodide / Iodine...You say potato etc etc. lol
But seriously, I didn't get none then & I sure as hell aren't likely to get none now either.
What I AM sure to get is a hot shower & a good night out at the pub. Therefore I bid all ATS'ers a good, calm adieu.

Wait, you can predict the future? Wow, impressive.

And all I can do is talk about the facts. I really suck.

Harry, i'm sorry this is very alarming to me, tell me why I shouldn't prepare "in case" something happens or gets worse?

Yup, yup... Thats why I believe the mountains are the only thing thats going to stop the winds, and theres going to be a thick build up that will fade slowly after we get anuff....


How high is the jet stream? The sub-tropicals are 33,000-52,000 feet. Mt. Lassen, just to use a West Coast example, 10,462 feet. Mt. Whitney is the tallest mountain on the West Coast at 14,505. So do you really think the mountains are going to "stop the winds"?



Maybe not all, none the less... some particales might build up, spread out and stay for a bit.

even if its not "alot", being exposed for along while is still not healthy for anything.
and dont say it is


Back up here a sec. You SAID "mountains are the only thing thats (sic) going to stop the winds." Although I did not use the term, I pointed out that idea was ludicrous because the winds are so much higher than the mountains. Now you have come back and suggested "some particales (sic) might build up."

How, exactly? You have not shown any kind of mechanism for that to happen.

And I NEVER said prolonged exposure is healthy.

The whole idea of the West Coast being somehow "at risk" due to Japanese radiation is much ado about nothing. No one has produced ANY evidence showing you ought to take any precautions whatsoever. I know it can be kind of boring without something exciting to stir up your blood pressure, but you are under considerably more risk crossing a rural road than you are from any radiation exposure from Japan.

If you want to get your jollies over this, knock yourself out. To promote it to people who may not know any better is the sad thing. ATS: "Deny Ignorance" Well, now is the time.

Hello ATS members, I just joined but I'm a reader for a long time. Anyway lets come back to the subject, from what I see, relaying on the community driven network of radiation stations in USA, not much is coming here as of now, maybe we have to wait a little longer?

Since we move to the Tarrytown, this town is located 15 miles south from Indian Point nuclear power plant we decided, well it's time to know if there is any radiation coming from the power plant. They saying it's safe, well better to be sure then sorry. I decided to get the Geiger counter and setup it for constant monitoring, it's bean up since 2008 and so far all looks good, no radiation detected at all. From my personal observation when we have rainy days then number of CPM goes up but that to be expected. Link to monitoring station: www.aspnic.com...

hey thanks for the link on Indian Point.
those readings go up to high side of
about 80 cpm which is pretty good
considering their proximity.
I think we should only start worrying
when they get above 120-125 range.
So they look ok right now

By all means, prepare for the worst. I don't have a bunker or a N-B-C suit, but I have potassium iodide pills and my gear can be loaded and I evacuated at a moments notice.

That being said, everyone knows that the radiation from Japan was going to spread around the world - that's what it does. But Japan is over 5000 miles away from the West Coast of the USA, and there is absolutely no evidence that the radiation that is descending or that will descend will be any much more significant that the normal, everyday background radiation. None.

That means don't panic - don't take KI pills yet (what a bummer it would be to go through your KI pill supply BEFORE you actually needed it, right?).

But watch the web, be vigilant. Be prepared.

very sound advice and would agree
on every point you made.
have a star bro


just like you I have been expecting
to read an article somewhere where
some idiot OD'd on Potassium Iodide.
Thank God it hasn't happened yet
that I know of and hope it stays that way.
