Put up all radiation shields and go to warp drive. The Blue Green place has either been swallowed by a Quasar or is to far gone to risk a landing, and with those readings there co be no truly intelligent beings on it . Lets get the flock outta this quadrant and take our bailout money somewhere else.

How do solve a prob-lem like Fuk-ku-she-ma?

How do you hold a New-tron Beam in your hand?


Apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein

You don't get neutron beams from random bits of fuel lying around. This was a criticality accident.

If Ann believes radiation is good for you, why don't she take this opportunity to move her sorry azz to downtown Tokyo?...No doubt she can now get a real deal on real estate.

I am ambivalent about Ann Coulter and I don't know what her position on radiation being good for us is.  What I do know is that there is a significant number of health physics professsionals who believe that radiation in small amounts stimulates the body's defensive mechanisms just as exposure to viruses and bacteria does.  Therefore, a conclusion that small amounts are actually good for you.  Everyone is exposed to naturally-occurring radiation every day.  Some more that others due to their geographical location and/or time spent in structures that contain relatively high amounts of radiation-emitting materials such as granite.

Sure, that radiation is called sunlight, and it promote the bodies production of Vitamin D.  Being pelted with ionizing radiation causes tissue damage.  You can set up a health tourism trip to Fukushima.  See how that goes for you.

I wonder how many 'sidewalk nuclear physicists/biologist wanna-bes' actually read the piece she wrote; odds approach zero the louder the aspersion cast I think ...

Yet to see credible case made/the cite where her arg is shown false, mostly subjective unquantified, fact-free aspersions ...

So by this brilliant Nietzschean (that which does not fatally irradiate me, makes me stronger) logic, people in Denver have lower incidences of cancer? 

Did this "low-level exposure" as studied happen to come solely from within the subject's thyroid? If not, isn't your position (which mirrors (M)Ann's BTW) a complete non sequitur? Can you see how suggesting such inane things during a nuclear crisis might be taken as an almost sociopathic lack of empathy by sane humans?

and gold's at $1437.5 and rising. Yes! Get up there you beauty...

We should pause for a moment and try to reflect that 1500 is merely a point on the path to 2000...

and that 2000 is merely a moment on life's rich and entertaining trek to 3000...

and spare a mere moments silence for our dearly departed dollars.... and pounds...and euros....and yen(s)....and so on and so forth.
