the real story about a kid who decided to prove he was smarter than entire countries. too bad he forgot to read up on the NEGATIVE effects of radiation exposure.

this is a real story by the way. one hundred percent based in fact. that's why it is so scary.

I think he would look better in a gray suit. But then again, they say curieosity killed the cult.

The story itself is true, but it suffers from the Typical Anti-Nuclear Media Hysteria.

Fact #1 is this: The materials he collected were incapable of fission. All he did was concentrate a fair quantity of dangerous shit in a small area and overexpose himself.

Fact #2: The media hyped this up so "bad" that what would have been a simple cleanup procedure around his workshop/shed turned into a massive multi-million dollar undertaking with people afraid to go home because lawyers insist it's too dangerous to do so. Same thing happened to Diaz Chemical here in Rochester.


*shrug* A little research and an open mind will allow you to see the anti-nuclear hysteria for what it is. The media decided (at the oil companies prompting) that anything nuclear is bad, and they deliberately go out of their way to misrepresent facts.

A few years ago I was a "media relations adviser" for a nuclear power plant. My job was to present the facts to the media and then recheck copy before it made it to TV or the newspaper. The media is so convinced that you are lying to them they will go out of their way to present their "facts" and discredit anything you tell them. Very stressful job, glad I'm not doing that shit anymore.
Science can sum up the universe like this:

REALITY = STUFF HAPPENS

Religion sums it up like this: REALTY = STUFF HAPPENS BECAUSE GOD MADE IT HAPPEN UNLESS WE DISAGREE THAN SATAN DID IT.

A few weeks ago my physics teacher decided to get out the schools cache of radioactive stuff, i can say i was sitting 2 metres away from a Gamma radiation source. but in all honesty radiation is all around us, were constantly bombarded by it and we even have radioactive sources in our home, just take a mallet to your fire alarm and eat the americium that comes out, congratulations you've just re-enacted an assasination!

radioation has become the new magic.
Most post-apoc senarios are "nuclear waste lands", but very few are "resource striken lands where once great citys fueled by oil which ran out shotly causeing a massive problem since their was none to fuel the research of alternatives"
