  • Oh, holy crap. If something were to happen, you would know WAY before hand. Your kids would be with you (unless you plan on leaving the country for weeks on end).

    Why are there only two camps here? The uninformed fear mongering camp that says "This is EXACTLY like Chernobyl!! OMG!!!" and then the "It's nothing to worry about".... For fuck's sake, all anyone can actually do is be informed, and make rational decisions based off of ACTUAL information, not opinions or fears.

  • If you want to live in fear that is your choice. How far do you feel like taking it? The next time you go to the grocery store you could get hit by a semi truck. Does this mean you won't go to the store anymore?

  • You'll make your health worse by worrying than by the radiation that's blowing across the Pacific. Ther is no need to start a pandemic, when it's not necessary. Turn off your t.v., read a book, play with your kids and enjoy your life.

  • Radiation kills cancer. Just think, some people may be cured without the expense.

  • You get more radiation talking on your cell phone, should we get rid of those as well?

  • I second pps. Don't obsess. Don't watch the "Disaster Porn" on the 24-7 news channels. Don't think in such extremes. I'm picturing that scene from Airplane! Although I wouldn't slap you, I will suggest you calm the hell down and use your brain. If you are really concerned about radiation reaching you here in the US, please realize there are many more dangerous things to worry about. Get rid of your cell phone, your blue tooth, don't drive, don't interact with mainstream society, don't seek modern medical care, and stick your head a little deeper into the sand.

  • some of yall r soundin like asses makin me sound like a crazy person

    but am also thinkin twice when it comes to leavin the house away frm my kids.
    --------------------------------------------

    Sorry that you feel that way but nobody is putting words in your mouth making you sound like anything.

    If you are scared look up Chernobyl. Were you around for that? How much did it have an impact on you then?
