PLUTONIUM - It's not a Planet

But, like the Moon, it now circles the Earth.
From Ron Paul's people:
"Largely absent from most mainstream media reports on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster is the fact that a highly-dangerous "mixed-oxide" (MOX) fuel is present in six percent of the fuel rods at the plant's Unit 3 reactor. Why is MOX a big deal? According to the Nuclear Information Resource Center (NIRS), this plutonium-uranium fuel mixture is far more dangerous than typical enriched uranium -- a single milligram (mg) of MOX is as deadly as 2,000,000 mg (4.4 pounds) of normal enriched uranium.

1 Gram = 1 000 000 Micrograms

Put in another way, 1 micro-gram (.000001 gm) of plutonium is as dangerous to your health as 2 grams of uranium! Find a dime. A dime weighs 2 grams!

On March 14, Unit 3 of the Fukushima reactor exploded, sending a huge smoke plume into the air. This particular reactor, of course, contains the rods fueled with MOX."
Was it a nuclear criticality? Only time will tell. Is this guy a flake?

A recently published study in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity confirms that the radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster reached Europe (Lithuania), and included plutonium, the deadliest man made element in existence.

According to the study’s authors the radionuclide concentrations measured indicate there was “long-range air mass transport from Japan across the Pacific, the North America and the Atlantic Ocean to Central Europe.

What this means is that half of the planet north of its equator — could have been exposed to some degree of plutonium fallout.

This is worth noting when we consider there is no safe level of Plutonium, and that - like true love - the damage it can do (on the human scale of time) is forever. The half life of plutonium-239 is 24,200 years.

The last mini ice age was only 12,000 years ago.

Radioactive contamination of the Pacific Ocean:

Sushi, anyone? "There are plenty of fish in the sea."
Reactor 3 is known to be more risky than other reactors because it uses MOX. However, there is or was MOX in the Storage Facility Ponds of reactor building 3 as well.

I realized* today why I didn't get Alan Watts.

Alan Watts, it seems, read D.T. Suzuki and then put on airs about being an authority on Buddhism (which to a post-14 year old, he was NOT). Buddhism was a commodity which Alan frequently sold through books**, lectures, seminars, and propounded on Radio and TV. Buddhism was merely a constant source of CASH for Alan. It was a religion - Alan worshipped CASH. And he has quite the legacy because of it.

But, except for "Big Hind, Big Fart," Buddhism is free. It is not bought, sold, traded or bartered. The Beats got that. Alan didn't. Unfortunately, Alan died an alcoholic with a full ashtray - results of a compulsive-addictive personality disorder. Oh well...

Somehow, when I was 14 I sensed that D.T. Suzuki was the source of that which Alan channeled to radio and TV. I read only two of Alans books and discarded both as regurgitation (vomit). The first authentic book on Zen I read was a reprint by D.T. Suzuki in 1964 - 30 years after it was first printed. I still have it today. It has somehow escaped both donations to the library and paper pulping. (P.S. Some of the REAL CRAP® you might have is worth $$$. Check before you pulp it!)

And that Ox is a Zen Figurine (frame 4) from a collection of 10 Ox Herding Figurines from prewar Japan - given to me just 50 years ago. It seems like only yesterday.
