Bloomberg will come up with a bullish angle

Tens of millions of Japanese will flee to China, Australia, Europe, and America with their fiat Yen in hand and buy houses to reignite the property bubbles.  They will all need new clothes too, as theirs are soaked in radiation; reigniting retail.  Air travel will be sold out for a few weeks, and since the Japanese only eat organic, they will all shop at Whole Foods, or just live in Europe.

The markets began to price in the coming exodus going into yesterday's close.

And that's why you should stay far away from the post office.

But as long as [Miyagi and Ibaraki] people are indoors, and preferrably under their desk, when they drink radioactive water, all should be well, yes? Something tells us this total and utter bullshit, will lead to at least one more TEPCO executive profuse crying bout in front of the cameras within 48 hours.

+1

Your tears will not save these obedient sheep.  Japan, do not allow this innocent blood on your hands.  Stop the obfuscation, info blackouts, and lies.  Don't tell your people just outside the 14-mile evac zone to "stay indoors".  Your people will never trust you again.

But the government has decided to spend huge amounts of money (burdening the people's future labor) to keep the Nikkei up (at thus other world stockmarkets) and keeping the Yen down, cause we don't want the Japanese people to have to much spending power.

The Government loves it's people. They are there for you.

These are negligeable levels. I wouldn't worry about it.

So much DOOM for an event that will never reach the Three Mile Island level.

Once the initial hype and doom about Fukushima disappears, we'll be on our way to DOW 16,000 before June. 

Buy the Nikkei. It's a unique opportunity.

" An inter-agency analysis concluded that the accident did not raise radioactivity far enough above background levels to cause even one additional cancer death among the people in the area. The EPA found no contamination in water, soil, sediment or plant samples."   http://www.epa.gov/history/topics/tmi/02.htm

Chernobyl, well we'll see, but I think it's safe to say that we're way beyond TMI.

From another AP article there were reports of Spinach being found with radiation levels exceeding the legal limits (though I wait with baited breath for the legal radiation limits in food to be revised upwards) 75 MILES away from the plant.  Sure the Iodine-131 degrades after 8 days, but the Cesium and Strontinum, take many years to break down, and are readily taken up by plants from the soil.  The upshot is, Japan is far too small a country, with far too little arable land, for such levels of contamination to wipe out the usable farmland in a 75 mile plus radius of the Fukashima plant.  I'm not sure where Japan stands as a net food importer or exporter, but regardless, this sort of cropland damage in such a densly populated country will probably wreak havoc on already unstable global food prices.

the problem with the water? 

it's probably just due to a little ambient radiation in that last tanker-load of fluoride from up North.

TexDenim:

"Not a dangerous level" to whom?

Not dangerous to adult males weighing over 135 pounds?

Or not dangerous to newborns and infants or pregnant women?

Or not dangerous to elderly or children under the age of 10?

Or not dangerous to skin cancer patients who've been warned by their doctor to avoid even dental x-rays?

Let me know.

Which would be the lesser of two evils?  Tell the truth and cause the peasants to panic, since none of them familiarized themselves with the term normalcy bias http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normalcy_bias or lie to them and do the best to figure out how to break it to them, giving the best and the brightest of the Japanese species time to escape before the lesser intelligent heard clog up the travel pathways, thus allowing the Japanese bloodline to still retain the best DNA for continuation.

Hey slewie, not laughing at your situation by any means. My point of all of my posts is to get people to start thinking for themselves, do their own research and put two and two together. Sites like ZH are few and far between. These are dire times for everyone, fear is a tool they use to keep you in a subserviant mindset and give up control of your person and your 'freedom'. www.vigilantcitizen.com if you go to this website you will see the different ways they use entertainment, news and music to spew their propaganda worldwide. Its almost like a culling of the peasants(current form of human) on a global scale. I feel bad for Japan, I really do, but if people dont wake up... dont know what else to say.

When any Government says that radiation is within acceptable levels in your water it is time to leave ASAP.  Ask yourself this " If your water had levels of Radiactive Iodine in it would you let your kids drink it?" 

If yes... you are literally drinking the Governments koolaide
