You might get a kick out of this.
Too bad Jim’s already hooked up, she sounds like his type.
er, didn’t anyone tell her the devastating cancer doesn’t occur overnight.
Nor did they tell her about the scientist at the Manhattan project who touched plutonium for some reason to save others in the room and he died a horrific death.
IS this Darwinism at work?
She should try Fukushima sushi.
I have watched these videos a while back. They are excellent.
I remember as a boy in the 50s playing with mercury all the time. You could buy it in some places. In my hands, fingers, etc..... 55-60 years later I write this.
Idiot. Ignoring the danger of radiation poisoning doesn’t make it go away.
If we embrace reality, does that mean that they will stop making Mad Max movies.
My dad played with mercury too. He’s still sane as far as I can tell.
Think I’ll pass on the apples.
I realize that some material sheds radioactivity faster than others and are safer but I think the woman is a fool. She won’t develop cancer overnight but extended repeated exposure will probably end badly.
I’m 50 years old and could probably live out the rest of my natural lifespan there but I’m not going to have children or live forever.
She’s cute. Nuttier than a fruitcake. But cute,
When I was a kid (60s-70s) everyone had chemistry sets and we played with liquid mercury all the time. Yes it's poisonous as are many chemicals, but fear and hype over everything science related is way over blown these days.

Freakishly large catfish? Ive seen bigger.
She’ll figure it out when she starts shedding the lining of her intestines 20 or 30 years from now.
Massive doses of radiation will kill you- the scientist who touched it to save others was a hero and yes died horribly because of it.
But massive doses of anything will kill you- even water
There are even some studied that suggest mild doses or radiation are beneficial. I have even read about ‘radiation tourism’ where people go into old mines to get a dose of radiation on-purpose.
This article shows an example of a report who knows nothing about the topic, and if it is not also YOUR area of expertise it can sound like she knows what she is talking about. There is a name for this phenomenon, something about a ‘bias’ toward thinking people on the news are educated in everything.
But a catfish gene mutation would not grow it into giant catfish, it would just kill it. It was already genetically designed to be able to grow that big- a 6 foot catfish is NOT freakish. It is the equivalent of a very talk 6 foot human, nothing freakish about that (I hope not, I am 6’4)
Genetic mutations take generations to be seen. Big catfish are just big catfish.
It’s probably a low risk situation now.
