For linking this compilation of best/worst student analogies.
I had seen the “solar eclipse” one, but not most of the others.
It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids around with power tools.
Amen, brother! And a Dogpile search turns up a site where credit due is credit given.
Oh this is epic.
My favorite: The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law George. But unlike George,
this plan just might work.
Linked from here, I think, where it was translated from the original:
Same site, on plutonium and strontium dispersion in the plant radius, but I can’t make any sense of these maps (from Sept. 30):
Hmm, even in the original document the maps are of such a bad quality that they are pretty impossible to read.
Ok, got the full text of the original document to work. You will need to install a language pack.
Point #2 is about the details for the ground extraction of material. 1st period June 6th-June 14th and 2nd period June 27th-July 8th. Plus the teams in involved. Strontium is shown as a “deposition flux”.
Final graph talks about a span from 1999 to 2008. It’s a pretty boring read from what I could deciver.
Anyway. Japanese media has more detailed information: http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/20111012p2g00m0dm111000c.html
Roof top sediments. Which makes sense.
Two samples. What kind of samples? Where were they found? What are they? Is it in the soil? Is it in the fugu? Is it in whatever else? Nobody says that. It’s only “OMG! STRONTIUM! WE’RE GOING TO DIE!”
I want data. Real data. And the comments there. Jeez. Idiots ranting against “modern society” and wanting “normal society” and similar jackasses.
Also: http://www.asahi.com/english/TKY201110110214.html That’s a buttload of earth.
And, while we’re at it: http://www.asahi.com/english/TKY201110110209.html Now that is quite interesting.
I figured I’d get fuller info and analysis if I punted this to WORMites. It’s always worked before.
I wouldn’t judge the Japanese guy’s site by the comments section. I wouldn’t want WORM judged by my comments . . .
