What a complete and utter waste of 10 minutes of my life.

most of the people left must have tons of ammo and guns stockpiled and silver buried.  They never anticipated that all of that stockpiling would mean they had no choice but to stay put in a highly contaminated area.  Those who were mobile didn't have to leave everything they had behind

Anyone remember the rabbits that lived around all the traps in Watership down?  Whenever I think about the people living around the plant I can't help but think about those rabbits and how they were pretty much just waiting to die.

He wants you to possess nothing and be poor and die quickly, so you don't use any of his precious oil.

Have any of you stackers ever realistically calculated how much you could carry?

You make a lot of assumumptions and pretend they are facts.  This is par for the course for you, though.

It took you 10-minutes to read that?  Gee, a public school education isn't what it used to be?  Be thankful that there was no math or the shoes would have to come off.

Important hot particle scientific study cited  at Fairewinds/Gundersen:


Lots of folks will be getting cancer in Japan in  next 10 years, in the US there will be some increased cancer cases.

Would YOU do that to your children? Even when poor, and clueless about the rest of the world? It's all so strange!

Prof. Christopher Busby argues there's going to be a LOT of heart problems (heart cells die in children, but are not renewed)

well, my friends, if that's not depopulation, I'm the fucking pope.


he's not popular (obviously), but credit where credit's due; kudos to mister Simon for actually going there. Ehmm did you actually drink the tapwater?

In more ways than one.  Seals dead and dying of mysterious disease in western Alaska reminds me alot of radioactive poisioning.

Like the folks here in Fukushima, most people will simply put up with constant abuse indefinitely.

Like the folks in Montgomery County, Texas, where the Sheriff's Office just took receipt of a Fed-Funded drone with weapons capability.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office in Conroe paid $300,000 in federal homeland security grant money and Friday it received the ShadowHawk unmanned helicopter made by Vanguard Defense Industries of Spring.


He said they are designed to carry weapons for local law enforcement.


"The aircraft has the capability to have a number of different systems on board. Mostly, for law enforcement, we focus on what we call less lethal systems," he said, including Tazers that can send a jolt to a criminal on the ground or a gun that fires bean bags known as a "stun baton."


"You have a stun baton where you can actually engage somebody at altitude with the aircraft. A stun baton would essentially disable a suspect," he said.


Gage said he has no immediate plans to outfit his drone with weapons, and he also ruled out using the chopper for catching speeders.


"We're not going to use it for that," he said. [Promise?]


Video after the jump:


Wouldn't you feel so much safer knowing your local law enforcement officers have this new capability?

Going long on 10 gauge magnums and ultra recoil shoulder pads for Big Bird.  00 Buck?  Often wonder why the kids in the UK don't take out the street video cams with air rifles.


What a dumb ass article.  Japan is an over crowded island in a 20 year depression.  Where the fuck are these people suppose to move too?  Nevada?  Also, there is mounting evidence that the real increase in radiation in the USA is being surpressed,  Keep popping that KI.

Do I need a 50 cal for that or will an AR or AK get the job done. A girl must be prepared.

My guess is that an AK or AR will do unless it is flying really high.

JANET NAPOLITANO: Well, look at that, all the red dummies are blown to hell.
FRANK MURPHY: And a few white ones!
JANET NAPOLITANO: One civilian dead for every ten terrorists. That's an acceptable ratio. 
FRANK MURPHY: Unless you're one of the civilians!

Hmmm....$300K that can be taken down w/a rifle or shotgun costing one thousandth as much?  Sounds like good ole govt cost/benefit accounting.  Well, it aint the county's money, is it?  And Im sure the trough-feeding-pigs at Vanguard Industries are happy too.

It's wasteful now but if this tech follows Moore's Law, by the end of next decade the pigs will have robotic killer bees that cost $100 (in current value).  Their sensitive antennae will enable them to home in on any reefer plume or any wireless connection to Zero Hedge.  Infrared cameras and sophisticated AI will guide them in for the kill.  Protests won't even happen because thinkcrime will be eliminated almost as it happens.  The drones will also be able to sting with tranquilizers when the pigs need to collect someone for interrogation or relocate them to a FEMA camp to work off their unpaid debts.

That's the new Bernankcopter!!  It's designed after Greenspans nose.  The Square black box between the skids is a high velocity fiat printer.  To the front of that is a direct feed, ink-cooled reciprocating fiat cannon. High tech shit.
