About the Fukushima nuclear power plant and its leaking radiation…

by wfgodbold

The World’s Only Rational Man has this to say (H/T Jonah Goldberg) about the radiation leaking from the power plant:

Just imagine that the radiation level has increased a thousandfold!  OMG!!  How much danger are you in?!

You are in incalculable danger.

It’s incalculable because 1000 times an incredibly small number is an only slightly less incredibly small number; given the background radiation you’ll soak up over your life, and dental/medical x-rays, any cancer cases caused by an increase in radiation like this “will be totally lost in statistical noise.”

Read the whole thing, as they say.

  1. Thank you for the link! I like your blog title

    • No problem; thanks for the radiation info.

      The title was originally a placeholder until I came up with something better, but I never did. Now it’s grown on me and I’m too lazy to change it. 😀
