If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

there IS no comparison. 3 mile island could have been much worse than it was but it really was nothing compared to Chernobyl.

yup a friend of mine posted this up not too long ago and it took me a bit to get the chance to read it all.. but well worth it.. I was amazed at the history of it all and the effect it had on everyone as well as how the plant delt with the situation.. after reading her story I looked up Chernobyl and read some more on it and she really knew her stuff she did a very good job explaining it all and gave alot of insight into the disaster and some of the lives stories she unveiling through their personal belongings that were left behind...
With her Dad being a scientist I can understand how she could go into that area with her meter and explore.. she knew what was acceptable.. I don't know if I could though...
