Japan is very hush hush about the whole thing. They downplay everything and even refuse help. We offered to send them coolant for their reactors and they declined. Now they've pumped salt water in (which destroys them BTW) and blew the lid off it. Now there is no possible way to keep those reactors cool.

If I were a citizen there I would be furious with the gov't.

Not if Japan doesn't mind fencing the areas off forever like Chernobyl, mass radiation sickness, and crippling the gene pool.

What'* wrong with my sig?

"your" should be "you're" since it is essentially "you are".

Good Grief. Now I need a drink and a pill. At least I got reasons. Thank you both for being enablers.

US naval ships ~50 miles away from Japan had detected radiation in the area and backed away a couple days ago.

I don't care what Japan says, there is some serious radiation problems over there.
