So i'm from Canada eh, and we don't exactly have the finest news establishments here, well in my eyes anyways. Well either that, or my cable sucks. With this, I usually stick to watching CNN to get the important international news.
While watching reports from Japan, I couldn't help but get annoyed that they were live for a few hours of the day, and the rest of the time it is just repeated over and over again.
Now the next big thing, was the stupidity of the reporters. They were all amazed when they found out radiation can be pushed around by the wind. Elliot Spitzer is on saying he only thought radiation was like gamma rays and x-rays and can only move in one direction!!!!11 How can the wind move the radiation around!!!??? Then the meteorologist and himself discuss how they just learned this yesterday.
Apparently these reporters forgot all about Chernobyl. They also forgot that certain elements such as Cesium, Uranium and Strontium give off toxic radiation.
I mean who could have known toxic radioactive elements used in nuclear reactors could be pushed around by the wind!
Fucking radiation, how does it work?
