Hillary's Vast Right-Wing Cons...
Heard this on tv this evening. There was this Japanese guy who went to Hiroshima for a business trip on Aug. 6, 1945. Well, the business trip didn't turn out so well. But he survived the atomic blast and went back home on Aug. 9.To Nagasaki. He survived that one, too, becoming the only person (so they say) to survive both A-bomb attacks.He lived till the age of 93.


Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.

Having read science fiction for most of my life, if put to the test I could probably remember more than 20 (mostly bad) stories about the effects of bombs and radiation.
Not to mention the entire Kaiju movie industry, the best known of which is GODZILLA!!!

Probably the guy really lucked out not only by being outside the actual bomb blast radii but also by not being downwind.

Studies of the effects of the most widely dispersed radiation, from Chernobyl, chart many radiation deaths, mostly due to Cancer, but not that much mutation.
Chernobyl So unless you were a Soviet/Ukrainian clean up worker, of a British sheep, or a Sami reindeer, or a Japanese monster, you're probably okay now.

mikezpen's comment was interesting. Nice to hear that someone could survive what we do to each other.

Saw a lady profiled the other day. She was either a nurse or an aide. Survived the Titanic. Then transferred to another ship in that line, which also went down. Lived until she died.

They actually have tourist trips into the C-noble restriction zone now.Other than a few poorly-formed offspring early on, there haven't been any wild mutations. No Godzillas and no giant ants (from my all-time fav. 1950's sci-fi flick-THEM!) The world was lucky w/that one.I'm beginning to have my doubts about nuke power of late. You mite say that chances of a disaster are minimal, but look what one can do.
