That's true. I actually looked up my profile yesterday and was shocked at how much changed and how the profile basically has nothing but a single picture and some linked friends.

Whatever the hell happened there over the years it doesn't seem like it's worth any time spent there for sure.

School cell tower blamed for children’s cancer by Vigte in technology

I live in a different country, but that sure looks like a 5G tower to me. I can't be certain because 5G is just going up around here and the 4G towers are easy to identify. 4G works really fine for me and everybody I know, so why? The answer is that probably 5G will be used for nefarious purposes, as reported elsewhere. And why is it that Israel developed 5G but will not be using it? Do they know something we don't?

That's true.

However, the hysterical fear associated with radioactive contamination is well captured by the link that useless_aether provided.

I highly recommend listening to it in it's entirety. The speaker goes into detail about the exact inconsistency that I'm describing.

It's worth investigating.

all radioactive material decays at the rate of it's radioactive half-life.

Half of the material decays at the end of the half-life. Not all of it. So it's always halved over and over and over, every time a half-life's worth of time passes.

Decay involves the splitting of unstable atomic nuclei, which produces both EM and subatomic particle radiation.

Correct, I agree with this and everything after it, it's factually correct as far as I understand.

I'm not sure what prevented the radiation from damaging the film, but that's a separate topic.

The signal was damaged. Just not enough to ruin it. And there was no film, they were piping the images from the robot to the place where they were controlling it, so that's why they got the pictures. It's like a live TV stream from the robot. But the information stream was still damaged by the radiation before the robot shut down and stopped transmitting.

It's difficult for me to imagine how a person could avoid receiving deadly doses of radiation when handling 14 lbs of weapons grade plutonium with shims, and screwdrivers, and thumb holes, etc.

Because it's not supercritical. The elephants foot is supercritical. This means that the reaction is happening in a runaway fashion, and is impossible to stop.

The demon core was sub-critical. To make it go supercritical, you have to enclose it in a neutron reflector shield, in order to make enough of the neutrons bounce back to hit the demon core, to make it go runaway. This is how the device is detonated, essentially, by ramming the two neutron reflector halves around the demon core, so it's completely enclosed and that creates a runaway reaction because of all the neutrons reflected.

Onlookers watching over shoulders, etc.??? I think it's safe to assume that shielding wasn't used, if they were using shims, and screwdrivers, and thumb holes.

Yes, it's super unsafe practice that would never be allowed today, but at a distance from a sub-critical mass, the radiation received is not fatal or even really dangerous. The CIA has been known to dose people with plutonium to induce cancer, but it literally takes years before the cancer sets in, and that's after the plutonium is ingested!

There's not just "radioactive" and "non-radioactive", there is a wide variety of rates of radioactivity. The elephants foot was extremely extremely radioactive, because it was in a supercritical state, meaning neutrons were flying and atoms breaking down actively, and it was going faster and faster.

Whereas the demon core was sub-critical, meaning the reaction would go slower and slower if left alone. A small piece of plutonium emits radiation, but when it's not being bombarded by neutrons, it is not nearly as radioactive, because it's not generating neutrons and undergoing atomic breakdown nearly as fast. Closing the neutron-reflective shell around it creates enough reflected neutrons that it begins to runaway, which is what happened when he accidentally pulled the screwdriver out. Then the two halves completely closed, and the plutonium went critical, which also means the amount of heat and radiation it outputs goes up a million-fold in a matter of microseconds.

So it's important to understand that when a nuclear reaction is in a runaway or supercritical state, it produces much much much more radiation than when it's sub-critical and just sitting there decaying naturally at a much slower rate.

there is also the 007 movie when they handle a similar pu core w bare hands, so it must be doable; as long as its under the critical mass, its fine. movie science! :-)

and the nature and wild animals are thriving around chernobyl. makes me wonder whats the deal w fukushima regarding health risks. maybe its all inflated.

and whats maddening is, we could all have safe, near free, clean, near unlimited energy with the public knowledge tech from the 20th century, and the elites are taking and keeping all the usable nuclear fuel for themselves stashed away for their future needs and/or selling it to russia, while we, instead, have sustainability-depopulation scheduled.

This is interview is remarkable. I don't think I've ever heard anything like it.

Literally, a first hand account around the complete opposite of everything I've learned about radioactivite exposure risks.
Which, supports my previous hypothesized hoax theory.

He even described and confirmed he account of accidental criticality from the demon core account.

TPTB could easily keep this a secret from the public.

All they'd need to do is create emergency medical procedures for radiation exposure that were designed to kill it permanently maim the exposed patient. Doctors with the best of intentions would follow the procedures, and perpetuate the hoax.

If someone survived, and stated that they didn't seek medical attention. The response would be that they must not have been exposed to enough radiation.

There is no way to verify this risk today, which is inherently suspicious...

If this account is factual. Then people who undergoe radiation therapy, and are injured from the treatment; might be intentionally injured or poisoned by something other than the radiation exposure..

Another population control opportunity for Rockefeller medicine.

Well, maybe your right. Let me know what you think.

As I understand it, all radioactive material decays at the rate of it's radioactive half-life. Decay involves the splitting of unstable atomic nuclei, which produces both EM and subatomic particle radiation.

Exposure to the byproducts of radioactive decay is extremely dangerous, and sometimes lethal.

He's an summarized example for comparison:

The Chernobyl disaster's core melted into what is known as the elephants foot.

Allegedly, this core is so radioactive that a robot and remote camera that was initially sent to photograph the core was rendered inoperable by line-of-sight exposure to the elephant foot.

A second robot and camera was sent in, and used a mirror to indirectly photograph the elephants foot. I'm sure you've seen this photo.

The Chernobyl reactor core was not weapons grade nuclear material.. .

I'm not sure what prevented the radiation from damaging the film, but that's a separate topic.

Plutonium is not a naturally occurring element. It is produced by bombarding uranium 238 with neurons, and producing uranium 239. U239 then undergoes beta decay, where a neuron changes to a proton; producing plutonium 239.

Plutonium is a heavier and more unstable element (hence not found in nature), so it's a strong candidate for do fission reaction nukes.

The demon core is weapons-grade, as it was literally designed to be used *as the third nuclear bomb** for use against Japan.*

It was anticipated that it would be ready by August 16 to be dropped on August 19.[3] This was pre-empted by Japan's surrender on August 15, 1945.

It's difficult for me to imagine how a person could avoid receiving deadly doses of radiation when handling 14 lbs of weapons grade plutonium with shims, and screwdrivers, and thumb holes, etc.

Onlookers watching over shoulders, etc.??? I think it's safe to assume that shielding wasn't used, if they were using shims, and screwdrivers, and thumb holes.
This is a loosely controlled environment...

The injured physicists even had a reputation for reckless handling of this material, so direct handling must have occurred on multiple occasions.

If radioactive exposure to weapons-grade plutonium is as deadly as we are told, then how could these two scientists have handled this material multiple times; with audiences, etc. And not have experience serious radiation sickness from direct exposure (not to mention the direct physical handling)???

IMHO: It does not make sense.

Please correct me if I'm mistaken...

Edit:. I'm inclined to believe the Scientists, and their statements. So I'm not criticizing the veracity of this article.

I think you just don't understand how it works.

You can be exposed to plutonium in small doses behind radiation shielding, but when it goes supercritical (as it did when he pulled the screwdriver out, thus ensuring complete closure of the neutron reflector shell) the amount of radiation that comes out is a thousandfold stronger or more, in a matter of milliseconds.

The difference is at one point the plutonium was supercritical (undergoing intense nuclear reaction), and normally it is not. It's perfectly logically consistent. He basically caused a meltdown when he pulled the screwdriver out.

I understand the desire to question things, but I think you should be really careful to deny established and tested science, that is repeatable and proven to physically exist, just because you don't understand the basics of how it works. You're not doing yourself any favors.

Articles like this really have me doubting some fundamental assumptions about the world.

There's is a tremendous inconsistency that needs to be proven.

Either:

Plutonium is legitimately as dangerous as we are told, and momentary exposure is life threatening/certain death.... (Which means this story didn't happen.).

Or...

The radiation risks are inconceivably exaggerated, and manually handling the most dangerous materials on the planet for group experiments like this did happen (shims, and thumb holes, and screwdrivers, and famous witty commenters; spicing up the hoax)...

As I see it, these scenerios are the very definition of mutually exclusive (certain death from exposure vs. manual handling). They both cannot logically coexist.

Maybe the nuclear threat was a hoax by the oiligarchy to suppress limitless fe free energy. It wouldn't be the first time.

Edit:. A more pc version.

The experimenter needed to maintain a slight separation between the reflector halves in order to stay below criticality. The standard protocol was to use shims between the halves, as allowing them to close completely could result in the instantaneous formation of a critical mass and a lethal power excursion. Under Slotin's own unapproved protocol, the shims were not used and the only thing preventing the closure was the blade of a standard straight screwdriver manipulated in Slotin's other hand. Slotin, who was given to bravado, became the local expert, performing the test on almost a dozen occasions, often in his trademark blue jeans and cowboy boots, in front of a roomful of observers. Enrico Fermi reportedly told Slotin and others they would be "dead within a year" if they continued performing the test in that manner.[12] Scientists referred to this flirting with the possibility of a nuclear chain reaction as "tickling the dragon's tail", based on a remark by physicist Richard Feynman, who compared the experiments to "tickling the tail of a sleeping dragon".[13][14]

On the day of the accident, Slotin's screwdriver slipped outward a fraction of an inch while he was lowering the top reflector, allowing the reflector to fall into place around the core. Instantly there was a flash of blue light and a wave of heat across Slotin's skin; the core had become supercritical, releasing an intense burst of neutron radiation estimated to have lasted about a half second.[6] Slotin quickly twisted his wrist, flipping the top shell to the floor. The heating of the core and shells stopped the criticality within seconds of its initiation,[15] while Slotin's reaction prevented a recurrence and ended the accident. The position of Slotin's body over the apparatus also shielded the others from much of the neutron radiation, but he received a lethal dose of 1,000 rad (10 Gy) neutron and 114 rad (1.14 Gy) gamma radiation in under a second and died nine days later from acute radiation poisoning.

This wikipedia article is crazy.
