Basically, we are talking beliefs here.


We aren't though. An earthquake occurred in a part of the world where earthquakes are a daily occurrence. It's not a matter of any 'belief' system. It's a scientifically verifiable fact.


Yes, an earthquake happened - what we're lightly bouncing around is the actual 'cause' of the earthquake. Did that particular earthquake happen completely naturally or was it 'set-off' by HAARP and/or underground explosions? And therein lies the discussion of 'beliefs'.

Fukushima World Warning!Spent Fuel Melt Down

edit on 30-12-2013 by donlashway because: ...


I had a quick look to see if there were any current images of the steam without success - I would be hoping that 'some' news reporters would be flying as close as 'allowed' with telephoto lenses on their cameras.... has absolutely everyone been silenced?

I wish these were wild ideas - they have far more probability than not of becoming reality. They are speculating that the spent fuel rods stored 'above' in unit 3 is what's steaming? Weeks back there was a thread here about the US military ordering a ton of radiation masks and supplies (about fedbizopps). www.abovetopsecret.com...

Wishes and everyone, the blogosphere reports of steam releases at Fukushima Daiichi (FD) have so far not been examined in detail by any of the mainstream media (Reuters News et. al.) that actually have covered this unfolding disaster in a reputable manner.

Regarding the steam releases, when the tent coverings at FD were first announced, Arnie Gundersen -- independent nuclear engineer at the Fairewinds website -- explained that interior air inside these structures would have to be periodically vented outside so that human beings can continue to do the repair work in these interior spaces. That steam is of course now more visible because it's now winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

Looking at the webcam, I realised that it would be easy to pass the images through a 'filter' to make certain areas of the picture more grainy or blocky than it would be normally. It is also easy to block out anything showing above the buildings. You just use a static image as a mask and show the original parts of the image rather than the current one in places where there is movement of smoke or steam etc. It is odd that you can see a poor-fair amount of detail on the left but very little/very poor in centre sky or right sky of the image.

Oh yes, R3 is, has and was melting down since it exploded, but hey, let's call "news" a temporally arbitrary principle.

A "day late and a penny short" as the saying goes.

So there is this story of Tepco shielding the pool on reactor 4 from reactor 3.
Is it the reactor or is it the fuel pool?
Maybe just the MOX fuel pellets laying around?



fukushima-diary.com...

diary
Tepco decided to shield the operation floor of reactor4 building.

They are removing the fuel from reactor4 pool. However, the radiation from “reactor3″, which is in the north of reactor4, is increasing the exposure dose of the workers.

Tepco states they can reduce the dose rate of the reactor4 workers by 50 ~ 66 %.

3 years are going to pass soon, however the state of the inside of reactor3 hasn’t been verified yet.

www.tepco.co.jp...



Related to this article.. Fukushima plant radiation increasing due to the rising contaminated groundwater / “Covering with lead plate” [URL]
Is this why they stopped transferring from pool 4 after 2 loads? Reactor 3 or pool 3 is so hot (radioactive) That they can't work next to it in another building? Then is it the concern for the people working there or is it so bad there could be the danger of starting a reaction in rods in pool 4?
Is it so bad, they can not get readings of rods in pool 4, because of the now ambient radiation level in the area ?
How bad is it?
Is there a tipping point where the rest of the world must get involved or is it allowed to go unchecked? Maybe that is the answer to conspiracy questions, why we just stand by? Is Active Darwinism the correct term ? Do you except it ? Are you ok with it?

The article has several problems mostly relating to some of the images the video seems to be using, some of which are actually from R4, but most of which are related to the fact it isn't news. R3 is steaming because the ground all around it has fissures. There is a bunch of very hot corium down there and it's raining and cold, and guess what you get when you have something hot and pour water on it in a cold environment...

Let's try to un-knot our panties and remember that the time to panic was a long time ago.

Your article ? That's what is happening, people guessing, trying to understand ?

No panic, I would just like a reaction (no pun ) to what is happening.
Information, no coverup is excepted.
There's plenty of tech to deal with it.
No resource needs to be saved if it's for just the few that survive ?

But I'm not.

Japan is the most seismically active nation on the planet. It is of absolutely no surprise that an earthquake happened there or could happen anywhere else in Japan, at any time.

Exactly - is no surprise to have an earthquake in an earthquake zone. Could be considered a brilliant cover for intentional destruction. They have the technology to create and manipulate any type of weather. They have the technology to drill into the ocean bed. They have every kind of bomb you can imagine. Could it have been intentional? Yes, it 'could' have. There is no way to prove it either way. And in the end as you said, it is what it is and we're left here teetering on the edge of our seats wondering how devastating this is ultimately going to turn out to be. Is ultimately a moot point.

My personal opinion (and is only an opinion) is that it is more likely than not a created earthquake because I understand (somewhat) how the top of the pyramid thinks and I know they have the technology to pull it off.

It then (unfortunately) makes 'sense' to me from this perspective 'why' the reactor was situated where it was situated and 'why' there is no global effort 'being allowed' to deal with it. And as I understand it there are other reactors in similarly 'vulnerable' positions elsewhere, like the USA. The whole nuclear industry is a death machine.

Wishes, Active Darwinism- If we are the ones creating a event or environment that promotes mutation, selective survival of the fittest (by opinion), mass extinction; the events Darwin said drove his evolution.

I needed a word for the idea, there have been many, some believe they can control such a thing maybe?

Hey WERT, looks like those links are being scrubbed, here is a link to the original story that I just found:

www.turnerradionetwork.com...

I am going to also post the entire page below (MODS please allow this, since these pages are being deleted from the internet!!!)

NEWS FLASH - URGENT - December 28, 2013 11:00 PM EST -- (TRN www.TurnerRadioNetwork.com... ) -- Persons residing on the west coast of North America should IMMEDIATELY begin preparing for another possible onslaught of dangerous atmospheric radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site in Japan. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) says radioactive steam has suddenly begun emanating from previously exploded nuclear reactor building #3 at the Fukuishima disaster site in Japan. TEPCO says they do not know why this is happening and cannot go into the building to see what's happening due to damage and lethal radiation levels in that building. Experts say this could be the beginning of a "spent fuel pool criticality (meltdown)" involving up to 89 TONS of nuclear fuel burning up into the atmosphere and heading to North America. Steam photo, full details and suggested methods to protect yourself appear below.

The announcements from TEPCO (in Japanese) can be viewed HERE (12/27), HERE (12/25) and HERE (12/24). You can use Google Translate to convert to English.

On December 28, 2013, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) admitted steam was seen billowing out of reactor building #3, saying the steam appeared to be coming from what's left of the fifth floor of the mostly-destroyed building. It is widely known that persons cannot get inside Reactor Building #3 because it is severely damaged and highly radioactive, so TEPCO cannot state for certain what is happening in that building or why. TEPCO admits they do not know why this steam is being generated, but matter-of-factly revealed today (December 28) the steam was first spotted on December 19 for a short period of time, then again on December 24 and again on December 25.


Nuclear energy experts have told TRN that the ONLY way this could be happening is if radioactive material previously ejected from the reactor explosion in March, 2011 has mixed together with other materials and has begun its own self-sustaining reaction(s), also known as a "criticality." Put simply, another "meltdown" may be taking place.



There are basically two possibilities if another meltdown is in progress:
1) Pellets of radioactive fuel, ejected when the reactor exploded, have mixed together and "mini" meltdowns are taking place with those small clumps of pellets. This would not be a horrific problem and may be manageable, OR;
2) Pellets of radioactive fuel, ejected when the reactor exploded, went into the spent fuel pool located above the reactor and have begun melting down so seriously they are boiling off the water in the spent fuel pool.

Since steam is visible, experts tell TRN that Scenario #2 above is is the most likely scenario and if so, it would be an absolute nightmare -- WORSE than the original Fukushima disaster! The Spent Fuel Pool was situated on the fourth floor above Reactor #3, and if this is the source of the steam, the situation could escalate rapidly out of control.



The As shown in the diagram at left, the spent fuel pool is not a contained structure; it is literally a "pool" filled with water, to keep old fuel cool. (The metal radioactive fuel, once removed from a nuclear reactor, remains hot enough to melt itself for two to three YEARS after being removed from a reactor.) The experts tell TRN that if steam is coming out of reactor building #3 this could very well be the start of a much worse radiation release because once the spent fuel pool begins its own reactions, all of it will be uncontrolled and uncontrollable.




To provide insight into how much trouble this could be, the chart below proves that, according to TEPCO, reactor #3 was loaded with 566 fuel assemblies. The spent fuel pool in reactor building #3 contains 514 assemblies; about 89 TONS. If that "goes critical" there's nothing to contain the radiation which will go directly into the air.




The video below was taken several months ago by TEPCO. It shows that the roof is totally blown off reactor building # 3 and shows a robotic crane being operated by remote control, trying to clear debris from the Reactor # 3 spent fuel pool. TEPCO is forced use robotic cranes operated by remote control because the area is so contaminated, anyone entering the area would die from radiation within one hour.



Imagine, now, 89 tons of nuclear fuel boiling away that spent fuel pool water and releasing 89 tons of deadly radioactive fuel directly into the air. Two to three days later, the west coast of north America would be "fried" by levels of airborne radiation and "hot particles" which could kill.

DO NOT PANIC - - - - PLAN

The purpose of this news report is not to scare or frighten anyone. It is to report the news to allow the public to educate itself on the issue and take whatever personal protective action they deem necessary. There is no reason to panic but there is reason to plan. It is better to have a plan, and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

PREPARATIONS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER ( We do **** NOT **** sell any of the products suggested below )

1) Keep up-to-date on developments via the Internet. The mass-media is not reliable because like the government, they want to avoid any mass panic. While that is a noble goal, withholding information as was done previously when the Fukushima disaster struck in March, 2011, allowed people to get exposed to radiation which could kill them now - or years from now. TRN believes people have a right to know, so as to make an informed decisions about whether to protect themselves or not.

2) Go immediately (RIGHT NOW) to your local home improvement or hardware store for rolls of plastic, Duct tape, WIDE masking tape and a couple rolls of self-adhesive weather stripping. You want to have a roll or two of the type of plastic that is used by painters; (the kind they use to cover your floor and furniture in case paint drips) and a roll or two of Duct tape. Don't deploy this yet, but if the radiation arrives, you'll HAVE what you need and won't be battling a million other people trying to get some when the danger actually hits. You can use the plastic and duct tape things to cover the insides of your windows, doors, AC electric plugs, light switches, bathroom exhaust vents, stove exhaust vents, -- even ceiling vents, to TRY to keep out radiation particles once you know they're arriving. (NOTE: this may not be 100% effective. Houses have loads of nooks and crannies which allow air from the outside to get inside. If you cover the largest ones, you're at least giving yourself and family a fighting chance.) These supplies are available immediately at: Home Depot Lowes Walmart TrueValue Ace Hardware and many other retail stores.

second page :


3) If radiation is identified as heading toward your area or has arrived in your area:
a) Cut sheets from the roll of plastic, large enough to cover your windows, window frames/woodwork, sliding glass doors, doggie doors, etc., and do so on the INSIDE of your house. Once the sheets are cut to size, secure that plastic to your inside walls using Duct tape. You want to cover things inside not outside so the weather doesn't cause the plastic to make noise or perhaps rip off during high wind, rain or snow. The duct tape should cover 100% of the edge of the plastic, making a good seal AROUND the window, sliding glass doors, doggie doors, etc. It is important to note that the plastic should go AROUND the woodwork on the inside the window/door and NOT merely around the inner perimeter of the window itself. Gaps between the window assemblies and exterior walls might not be air-tight; especially in older homes where the silicone weather sealant around windows/doors is worn or in earthquake prone areas where the shaking has loosened-up window/door seals. This will help seal out radiation particles in the air so they shouldn't be able to get inside your home. Those of you in private homes should do this sealing on EVERY opening to the outside (doors, windows, vents) on every floor of your home, from the basement to the attic. Those of you who do not have basements, will usually find vents along the slab foundation which are designed to naturally ventilate under the house. SEAL THESE from the outside as best you can. Similarly, those of you without full attics, will usually see vents of some type for the roof rafter area. SEAL THESE as best you can too. (PLEASE don't fall off any roof or off any ladder. Be careful!)

b) Cut smaller sheets from the roll of plastic to cover electrical outlets and light switches inside the house. Those outlets and switches are breaks in the walls to the inner structure of the house. The inner structure gets naturally ventilated under the eaves and awnings of the house. While the air flow is not generally a lot, it IS there; you want to seal it out. As with the windows, use Duct tape to hold the plastic a full inch or two around the entire perimeter of the light switch our electrical outlets.

c) Cut sheets from the roll of plastic to cover vents: Bathrooms, stoves. Remember, this is just a TEMPORARY situation and the radiation will usually blow-over or dilute within a week or so. While none of us likes the smell in the bathroom after it is used, it's better to put up with that for a few days than have radiation in there from the vents. BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU CHOOSE TO COVER A STOVE EXHAUST VENT; YOU DON'T WANT THE PLASTIC GOING ON FIRE IF YOU'RE COOKING.

d) DO NOT use duct tape or plastic over your main entry/exit door. If, God forbid, there's a fire, you want to be able to exit fast and not be battling duct tape to get out. Instead, maybe check to see the weatherstripping around the door is in good shape or at worst, add a layer of new weatherstripping to what's already there. The bottom of the door sill can be covered with a rolled-up towel if necessary, to prevent drafts at the bottom of the door.

NOTE: Duct tape, when removed, may damage the surface of the wall it was stuck to. It may peel off paint or even the paper covering of Sheetrock when you remove it. If this is a concern, you may wish to utilize WIDE masking tape instead. We do not recommend masking tape, but it may be viable if you are concerned about peeling off the duct tape when the emergency is ended.

4) Get a minimum "NIOSH N100-certified" filter mask for yourself and each member of your family. NIOSH stands for National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) which is part of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), an agency of the US Government. They rate protective gear for various industries and the lowest possible level of mask with any hope at all of filtering out radiation particles must be rated by NIOSH as N100, which filters 99.97% of airborne particles. The masks cost about $30 on Ebay and look like the one in the image at left below. The CDC also lists N100 mask suppliers HERE.


SERIOUS NOTE: There are TIME CONSTRAINTS on the use of the N100-rated mask in a hostile environment. Having such a mask is not a license to go out and have fun. It is a limited mask, with limited capability for a limited time period, to help protect you in this type of emergency.

Of course, you can go all-out and get some super-mask for several hundred dollars, but the minimum you need is an N100 rated mask.

Whatever you do, don't try to get "cute" and figure you can "get away with" a mask that is rated N95 or lower. An N95 mask will NOT filter out the tiny particles involved here and you will be fooling yourself if you buy any mask rated less than N100.

It is important to understand that a "hospital mask" normally used by Doctors, WILL NOT PROTECT YOU AT ALL from radioactive particles. The particles are so small, they can fit right through a typical surgical mask used by doctors. If you breathe-in any "hot Particles" of radiation, they will wreak havoc on your lungs and cause very rapid deterioration of your health. Cancers, Leukemias, Hemorrhaging . . . . you get the idea.


5) About your job and going to work during a radiation emergency . . . .
Those of us with jobs can't simply call-in and tell the boss we can' come to work today because we're afraid of the radiation. So start discussing this situation with your bosses first thing TODAY. See if the company as a whole is willing to develop some type of strategy to deal with taking time off due to a radioactive plume coming onto the west coast of north America from Japan, making things unsafe for a few days. Start the conversation. Don't wait until things spiral out of control and people are panicking.

6) If you HAVE to go out, clothing will get contaminated; be prepared to protect yourself
Wear an NIOSH N100 mask at all times when you are outside your house during the plume's arrival and presence. Yes, you're probably going to feel like a jerk; especially when the uninformed, the ignorant and those "in denial" about the real danger, start poking fun at you. Just remember you'll have the last laugh.

A VERY helpful tool for this situation is a disposable TYVEK suit and booties. You can get them at most home improvement stores and on EBAY for about $8. Tyvek coveralls are one-piece garments, usually white, commonly worn by mechanics, painters, installation installers, and laboratory and cleanroom workers where a disposable, one-time use coverall is needed. They are also used for some light HAZMAT applications, such as asbestos and radiation work but do not provide the protection of a full hazmat suit. Wear it to work, when you get inside, take it off right at the doorway and throw it away in a garbage can near the door. It's done. Don't touch it again. Then go wash your hands and face to wash away whatever may have accumulated on them. These suits are also available at the retailers listed above (Home Depot, Lowes, etc.).

Page 3:

When you're outside, your footwear is going to be picking up the contamination that fell onto the ground. This is unavoidable. What you CAN do, is take those shoes off once you get where you're going, and thereby not track the radiation into wherever you are. You may want to get "Disposable Plastic Shoe Covers" to help avoid at least SOME of the radiation getting onto your shoes. These shoe covers are cheap, and you throw them away as soon as you get inside your destination.

For Eye protection, we suggest a cheap pair of Swimmer's Goggles. They vary in cost from 99 cents to about $10 on Ebay - or your local sporting goods store. The purpose of this is to prevent radioactive particles from landing on your eyeballs. Swimmer's goggles will fit the bill pretty well and you can wash them off once you get to where you're going, and use the goggles again the next time you go out. Radiation washes off with soap and water.

7) IN AND OUT OF YOUR HOUSE
The same procedures listed above for going to and from work, should be used by you and your family when going to/from home. After all, you don't want to bring radiation into your house on your clothes, shoes etc, or walk-it-through the whole house once you arrive. Put a coat rack just-inside the entry door. Put a shoe rack too. First thing everyone does when they walk in the door - ditch the outerwear and shoes right then and there. YOU DO NOT want to be tracking radiation into and all over your house, then spewing it up into the air when you vacuum and it comes out with the vacuum exhaust air. You want to stop the radiation as close to the door as you can. If you prefer, put a clothes hamper -- LINED WITH A PLASTIC LAWN-AND-LEAF-SIZE BAG just inside the front door and change your clothes the moment you get in. When the hamper is full, seal-up the bag, take it to the washer and wash the radiation away.

8) Wash obsessively during the emergency
External radioactive material washes off with soap and water. When you consider that everything you touch and all the air that touches you OUTSIDE can be contaminated, it is important to WASH exposed body parts (face & hands) with soap and water often. When you get home from your daily routine and get out of potentially contaminated clothing, take a shower before anything else. A SHOWER, NOT A BATH. Showering will allow the radiation to fall off you and go down the drain whereas a bath could possible allow the radioactive materials to cling to your body as you leave the bathwater. Sadly, this brings us to one, final, MAJOR, MAJOR, MAJOR problem: Water comes from reservoirs and reservoirs are out in the open; radiation has and will continue to fall into our water supplies.

LOCAL OFFICIALS HAVE ALREADY BEEN CAUGHT DELIBERATELY CONCEALING RADIATION IN DRINKING WATER

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists the maximum safe levels and government-approved methods for removing, radiation in water. Yet according to KHOU-TV in Texas, local and state officials in that state deliberately conspired for YEARS to alter the results from their municipal water tests, to deliberately CONCEAL high levels of radiation in municipal water! If local and state officials in one state have already been caught deliberately concealing radiation in water, can any rational person believe they aren't doing it now in other states -- or won't do it (again) in the future? You can read that story and watch the KHOU-TV news video HERE.

In fact, KHOU-TV found that the radiation in local water was so severe, that it made the underground water pipes and the water heaters inside homes radioactive; in some cases 11 times more radioactive than allowable by law! The pipes and water heaters were so radioactive that none of those things could be scrapped in a junk yard! You can read this separate KHOU-TV story and watch the video HERE.

Given the irrefutable proof above we suggest equipping your sinks and shower head(s) with a water filter. Now, getting radiation out of water is NOT simple. Paper filters do nothing in that regard.

Granular Activated Carbon filters have shown SOME ability to remove SOME types of radiation. Reverse-Osmosis has shown good ability to remove other types of radiation. ION Exhange is the final method which has shown good ability to remove radiation. Yet getting all these types of filters in ONE system is not easy and it is considerably expensive. As such, we suggest that having a filter of some type is better than having no filter at all. Of course, once the filters become saturated with pollutants, they're useless, so expect to change-out those filters PRECISELY in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendation or even more frequently. Yes, this will cost a few bucks, but this is an extraordinary situation calling for extraordinary response. What good is all the safety you exercise with the steps above, if you then eat, drink and bathe-in contaminated water?

9) Potassium Iodate Pills: Have them but DO NOT USE THEM --- YET
One of the major concerns in a situation like this is a material called radioactive Iodine (I-131). Your body needs iodine to function and iodine is stored in your Thyroid gland in your neck. The Fukushima disaster released radioactive Iodine in March, 2011 which has long since dissipated, but could release more if the spent fuel pool goes critical. Since Iodine is stored in your Thyroid, any radioactive Iodine would get stored there too and likely lead to Thyroid cancer. For women, Thyroid cancer is about 95% curable; for men, it is about 95% fatal.

In order to prevent your Thyroid from absorbing radioactive Iodine, your body needs a very good supply of non-radioactive iodine. If your body has the Iodine it needs, it won't try to store more. You get Iodine from your diet but if Radioactive Iodine is released by Fukushima, you'll need to guarantee your body has a supply that is not radioactive; that's where pills called Potassium Iodate come in to play.

Potassium Iodate provides Iodine to your body/Thyroid and when used during a radiation emergency, will help avoid the need for your body to absorb potentially radioactive iodine. SERIOUS CAUTIONARY NOTE: DO NOT TAKE POTASSIUM IODATE PILLS UNLESS AND UNTIL RADIATION LEVELS ARE CONFIRMED TO BE HIGH. If you take those pills when radiation levels are normal, your Thyroid will begin to GROW to absorb the extra Iodine and will not return to its normal size once you stop taking the excess Iodine! If you take Potassium Iodate pills when they are not needed, you could end up with a Thyroid that is so big, it might look like a tumor in your neck; so DO NOT take Potassium Iodate Pills until they are actually needed. You can find Potassium Iodate Pills on Ebay for about $10 a bottle.

The suggestions above are just that SUGGESTIONS. What you choose to do - or not do - is, of course, up to you. One thing is clear, though: Fukushima is acting up again and when it does, the wind and the sea will carry the results to North America within days. Do not "panic" -- Plan. Do not "react" -- respond. With a little planning and careful deliberation, we can all get through this just fine.

In a post above I said Tepco had stopped after 2 loads unloading unit 4 pool.
I was wrong.
From Tepco's facebook page: Tepco facebook


Tokyo Electric Power Company, Incorporated (TEPCO) shared a link. December 27 FUEL REMOVAL FROM THE UNIT 4 SPENT FUEL POOL SAFELY AND STEADILY ONGOING TEPCO has announced that the operations of fuel removal from the Unit 4 spent fuel pool at Fukushima Daiichi NPS, and transportation of this fuel into the Common Pool, are progressing in a safe and steady manner. The operation began on November 18, 2013. As of December 26, 2013, the transportation operation, which uses a cask to transport the fuel, has been carried out six times. 132 spent fuel assemblies, out of a total of 1,533, have been successfully moved into the Common Pool. The operation is scheduled for completion by the end of 2014. In addition, to ensure the structural integrity of the Unit 4 reactor building and the spent fuel pool, periodic inspections of the facilities are performed on a quarterly basis. Their 7th regular inspection was conducted during the period of November 26 through December 18, 2013. This inspection consisted of four items to check, (i) building tilt measurement, (ii) outer wall measurement, (iii) visual inspection, and (iv) concrete strength evaluation. The inspection results confirmed that there were no cracks or tilting, that sufficient concrete strength is being maintained, and that both facilities are in a sufficient condition to store spent fuel assemblies safely. TEPCO will continue to dedicate its efforts to the safe and steady execution of these operations. For details on actual performance and progress, etc., please visit the following websites: ・Fuel Removal from Unit 4 of Fukushima Daiichi NPS www.tepco.co.jp... ・Results of the Seventh Soundness Inspection for Unit 4 Reactor Building at Fukushima Daiichi NPS www.tepco.co.jp...

As we can all see or read all is well...

I'm going to reply with a quote from my posts above:

"The experts tell TRN that if steam is coming out of reactor building #3 this could very well be the start of a much worse radiation release because once the spent fuel pool begins its own reactions, all of it will be uncontrolled and uncontrollable. "

As a person in the explosives field, my first thought here is, let's look at a controlled detonation, we do this crap all the time, in all soil types and weather conditions. First, completely seal off the harbor. Then, map out exactly where the debris field will be.

We do this for several reasons, BUT mostly because if we scatter the corium, it can't detonate.

desperate times call for desperate measures.

I'm just sayin'.

Hey, did they ban Human finally?
