Why is it laughable to be prepared? It's very unlikely that we will see radiation in the US from anything happening in Japan, but it's not impossible.

I have not seen this reported anywhere other then my newspaper. I guess there getting close to where they can get power back to the plant if so 5-6 will never have a problem as cooling will get back. Just hope that some how 1,2,3,4 can still be cooled by there pumps.

But we will see it may do nothing to help.

Pretty much everyone says that we wont get radiation here in the US because there wont be an explosion like Chernobyl. While there might be one, it would not be that bad. More than anything I keep hearing about the next few days being beyond pivotal and that worst case scenario a large chunk of Japan becomes uninhabitable.

Its funny in a way. No one I know talks about this. No one I know cares. If there is any panic its just people online it seems. Its all a world away.

GE is getting gas turbine generators over there for power, so contained cores can be cooled. problem will be the ones where the outside shell is cracked and the water may be leaking...

It's way past laughable - it's actually sad. The bull-fed droves aren't buying them in buttloads "just in case", but are actually convinced that a layer of green radioactive goo will cover at least half the world.
Might be a slight exaggeration, but it is more than likely to be true.

Someone needs to add compulsory classes about nuclear safety to the curriculum of every school or, at the very least, all the colleges/universities.
I know, that ain't happening, but a man can dream, can't he?


P.S. Try looking up "potassium iodide" in ebay - stuff's either sold out, has numerous bids or is expensive like hell.

LOL, found a "Radiation Emergency Tablet Family Pack" for $2,5k(bid) $5k(buy it now)
Even if I added all the different facepalm.jpg images floating around the internet to this post, it wouldn't be nearly enough.

As for GE sending the generators maybe two late now where was this 3 days ago why did japan not ask for more help 3 days ago. Seems like everyone just waited to long seems out of control now.

Have u been checking every pharmacy in your area?

I had friends and family planning to visit Japan, I'm so glad they waited a few weeks before going, no need to add to the death toll. So sad D:

We are talking about the nuclear industry here, VERY secretive all around the world. They won't admit to major problems until it's too late.
