Fukushima radiation hits San Francisco
« on: January 07, 2014, 01:33:55 PM »
Back in October it was Hawaii's turn. Now San Francisco is getting bombed. So any radiation experts in here? Its funny that none of this is on the news.

We're all looney here anyway.  Who would be able to tell the difference?

Probably because it's harmless if it exists at all.

The level of radiation within 500 yards of Fukushima is so low that the dose you would get if you went for a swim in the ocean is equivalent to what you'd get from eating two bananas.

Detectable, yes, but immaterial.

It's not really funny.

I probably did the math wrong, its why I asked for experts but.....  45 days (continuous) on that beach at 150 CPM would bring you to what is considered a years worth of "safe" exposure.

Where's Walker when we need him? He hasn't logged into .net since Halloween, and I don't think he's a member here.

Yeah, there's lots of hype about it but the reality is that it's not much at all.  Measurable, but insignificant.   :thumbsup:

Yeah, but it's not caused by radiation, man. It's like, far out dude.

Yeah, but the amount we're talking about on the west coast of North America is roughly equivalent to 0.006% of background radiation levels- as I mentioned, measurable but not significant.

Other than bums, who spends 45 days continuously on the beach? In San Francisco?

Denver residents are in more danger than any given resident of the bay area. Danger being a very relative term.

Speaking of bananas, anyone heard from Sammy Seaman, or whatever the hell his user name was?

As for Sammy- we chatted Monday night a bit.  Things are busy, but good.
