Is Fukushima's Earless "Nuclear Rabbit" A Harbinger Of The Mutations About To Hit Japan?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

This is not good. From the RT clip: "A nuclear rabbit has sparked online panic in Japan. Amateur footage shows an earless mutant rabbit, and the person who made the video claims it was shot just outside the exclusion zone near Japan's crippled Fukushima plant. The clip has given rise to fears the radiation threat in the area is far worse than previously thought. The funny bunny has caused an online frenzy, with predictions that babies in Japan may soon be born with mutations."

Okay people, Fukushima scares the shit out of me, but we must check our facts.  Earless rabbits are not that uncommon.  From what I have read it sounds like it can happen when the rabbits are young and the mother overgrooms them, basically licking off the little ears.  Google "earless rabbit".

Rabbits raised in captivity have little use for ears. The energy put into creating ears which won't be eaten are betetr spent on "fattening" up the rabbit for consumption. This bodes well for future japanese food supplies. Long Yen!

The Japanese have really Fuk'ed up this time.

Be well aware that every member of congress and the president knew full well how serious the Fukushima "event" was and failed to inform the public. They also know exactly where they're going on the bogus debt ceiling fiasco. As usual, the public will be last to know.

Prepare for armageddon or make a pre-emptive strike if so inclined.

If I may be allowed to refine your statement?

Japan's median age is one of the highest in the world and climbing. The young people care more about their little gadgets than interacting romantically. Long term exposure to ionizing radiation and particles will cause cancer in otherwise healthy young people and progressively degrade the reproductive success of the entire population.

reptiles, birds, fish, insects, plant eating mammals are first up.

I'm surprised that the knowledge of the northern hemisphere being covered in radiation hasn't created a scramble for the equator and the southern hemisphere countries. I guess the desire to destroy one's self  is stronger than I thought. Long on Houses in Bali! Long Thailand!

It is very interesting though that the radiation maps have shown the radiation kilometers away from Thailand's southern coast, yet not hitting the coast. Perhaps all of those trips to the temple are paying off for the Thai's!

I'm still quite wondering exactly how this radiation will end up affecting humankind, as the amount currently swapping over the northern hemisphere is, I believe, more than Chernobyl. What terrifies me is that this radiation in the atmosphere, water, and food supplies is not so much as create a higher level of cancer, because that is likely. What remains to be seen is the scale of it, and how much more cancer becomes a part of our daily lives. What is very concerning to me is what effect on IQ levels this will have for the northern hemisphere. Is the radiation going to affect some/all of us and give us hyper-concentration or memory powers? What I see more likely is a reduction in attention span, decreased ability to concentrate, and perhaps more short-term memory problems, although I'm not a specialist in this field. Basically, I fear the movie Idiocracy coming to life because of the side-effects of the radiation in the atmosphere. I would love to hear from someone qualified exactly what is in store for the human psyche inundated with daily radiation.

So... Long West Africa! Start convincing yourself you like to eat white bread and mayonnaise in the morning for your breakfast, and go! Until Brazil and Argentina fight over dwindling horse supplies, and the next Carnival turns into a massive brawl, a tragic circus accident!

Still, the radiation from ME or Paki-India would follow its natural course, and from the spinning of the globe  would gravitate northwards. So I think Malaysia and Indo would be fine, Australia would be just splendid that time of the year.

So, Long durians bitchez! Brain food!

Well, what about sexual desire?

Upon the subconscious realizing there's going to be nothing but blanks there, maybe the sex drive would shut down.

Or maybe it would go full 2012 mode and just fuck anything that moves in some wild primal desperation to continue one's line.

So which way is it going, guys? Thinking with your dick a lot more than usual, or have you been tucking that between your legs a lot more lately, instead getting more interesting in lavender baths and poetry?

I would love to hear from someone qualified exactly what is in store for the human psyche inundated with daily radiation.

I think you've given us enough of a glimpse for now...

This earless bunny has nothing to do with the Fukushima accident just like the mutant babies in Iraq have nothing to do with depleted uranium.

This is one rabbit that can't be pulled out of a magician's hat.  Tepco's new mascot.

Why huge pumps and generators weren't airlifted into Japan within days of the earthquake/tsunami is a mystery to me.  Why they aren't digging a huge mote around the reactors now is a mystery to me.  This poor rabbit is not a mystery.  Heartbreaking.

Much better to catch a rabbit by the neck,  it tranquilizes the rabbit. Torn ears happen.

It can't help it, it was drawn that way...BTW the government has raised the estimate of airborne radiation released from the accident a wee tad...I mean, well, doubled it.

My bro in law just finished the program that will run the kurion at fukashima.

It will clean and circulate tha water in the reactor cores. The waste will then be stored safely, so they say.

Japanese companies wouldn't touch this clusterf@ck so they hit up California nerds. One of the fellows that is there installing this thing wouldn't go on site because his radiation Sherpa wasn't there (a guy that knows all the various radiation hotspots and can show you where to walk)

This just may save this industry...

There is a Soviet submarine leaking radioactive STUFF for about 30+ years off coast of Norway.

I saw a report on 60 Minutes probably 20 years ago they showed fish with 3 eyes.

I noted that Alexander Higgins blog, which had lots of SCARY but TRUE stuff re Radiation and also Big Brother, was hacked last week don't know if he can get it back up, it wrecked his server.

I wonder how any engineer can think that reactors can be controlled and contained properly at all times.  This is crazy.

First, the reactor, having damn long life cycle, is a matter of probabilities and time to cause a catastrophic failure.

So we should install reactors as if they were to be "entombed" easily if catastrophe arises.

Forget about secondary valves, backup cooling systems, etc.  That would help to recover from a transitory problem, but do nothing for a critical failure.

It is like astronauts:  no way to recover you back home.  If you are out there, you are on your own.  At least don't fall over land or a city.

We need to grow our scientific knowledge with our ethics.

The whole engineering reactor model is a joke.

Reactors should be built CONSIDERING catastrophic failure as a fact, be built to be converted into a tomb before it spewes radioactiviirt+.  We are naive.
