I personally want to sign up for operation human shield if the big house is in danger. I would prefer to pad the new scoreboards with my carcass but any place would work.
OT- Possible nuclear event type "dealy" in South Bend area
If my hair starts falling out, I'll be sure to let you all know.
Too late my hair is already gone...
Notre Dame was just trying to replicate Denard's dilithium core

Wow thats crazy. I AM a scientist and this seems a little creepy. I live a little north of indy so I am not too far away. that being said If the radiation levels really are 5 to 7 times then its nothing to be worried about. Finland usually gets about 3-4 times the amount of natural background radiation the rest of europe gets. There are places on earth where people live that have up to 250 times the normal background radiation and they are fine so it shouldn't be a big deal.
Nothing to see here, please disperse!
the leak at the nuke plant in Ohio is in the Sandusky/cedar point area and is not cause for concern as it is only a very small amount of cooling water that is fully contained. the stuff going on in sw mi and northern in could be something to worry about.
Good thing I just got my lead pants back from the dry cleaners.
Dying from lead poisoning instead?
The asbestos lining in the pants prevents him from lead poisoning.
The nuclear event thing (actually reported by some random ass lady in Texas with a geiger counter first) is probably just a slight increase due to a solar wind event. Nothing important. The booms and chinooks and apaches, though, is something completely unrelated which probably is more interesting. I'd like to know why THAT's happening.
Is this real or some late night bs???
Once reddit went to work, they discovered that there was an equipment malfunction that caused the unusually high radiation reading, and there is no cause for alarm.
You will not wake up in the morning with boobs or anything unless you had them before you went to bed.
Thanks for the info. I was looking at every news site and not one of them said a word about this.
You will not wake up in the morning with boobs or anything unless you had them before you went to bed. Dammit. I wonder if the hotel in South Bend I booked for my wife allows for refunds...
Leave it to the South Benders to overestimate something that should be pretty marginal.
Yes and the government never issues cover up statement do they huh haha
Marginal? Irrelevant? I'll have you know, in the 1920's South Bend had the best escaped nuclear radiation in the nation.
Notre Dame: RETURN TO GEIGER!
In other news, does anyone know what the heck is going on with this:
For those who don't like clicking links, it's AnnArbor.com's' Twitter feed, and it states:
So there that is.
What??? To much wierd crap going on tonight.
In other news Brady Hoke is the new coach!
Is it December already? Maybe the end of the world takes 6 months to warm up.
That's what she said.
Wish I hadn't read this. The hypochondriac in me is going to have a hard time sleeping tonight.
But if I wake up with freakish mutations, at least I'll know what caused them.
Don't worry about it. Radiation is rarely does damage unless it is significantly stronger than this (where you risk getting radiation poisoning) or over a long period of time (where you are at risk of getting cancer). If this keeps up (without an absolutely astounding increase in energy, which creates the risk of poisoning) for the 10 years, then you should be worried. Otherwise sleep well, maybe in the morning we'll know more about what happened.
Also you wouldn't have any major radiation induced mutations (like an extra arm), thats only a risk in organisms that haven't undergone development yet, and there is some mutation to a Hox gene.
somehwere, a health physicist just died because of this post
"Health physicist" is a job? Does it involve saying things like "that velocity is bad for your cholesterol?"
I bet Denard would make a good health physicist.
if you wake up looking like Mike Martin.... then we know what happened!
Is that hairstyle supposed to ward off aliens or attract them?
Must be from Prometheus opening tonight. PS go see it, twas amazing.
Good call. Prometheus was a great movie.
Wait what? I live in SW Michigan and work in South Bend and I haven't heard anything about this all day. I actually just got off work and I can't believe no one came into the ER to get their radiation level checked. We had several people come in several months ago during the solar flare storm or whatever it was because they thought it was affecting them.
So the bottom line is nothing is really going on?
It appears as though it was a number of coincidences that culminated in the perfect storm on Reddit. There were a couple of fairly minor incidents, but nothing really to get worked up about.
Essentially there was an incident yesterday with a leak. The president happened to be flying over the area, which accounts for all of the military aircraft, and some sort of test.
All of those things came together at the perfect time, resulting in one of the most upvoted threads in Reddit history.
just watch out for those radioactive zombies headed towards Ann Arbor!!!
and his staff?
...I'd like to move that we open the floor to Brian Kelly jokes.
Looks like Brian Kelly is our first victim of radiation overexposure.
Wait . . . what? He always looks like that?
I thought he was the source of the radiation. What was the color warning level of Kelly's face last night?
I was traveling on I-80 eastbound yesterday by the illinois/indiana border and passed a convoy of 20 military hummers going eastbound.....therefore.........zombies!!
The same ones that shot Kennedy?
We have it all wrong....It is these guys coming!
Hockey Bear repelled the assault though
I thought this was somehow conference expansion related.
Nonetheless, this could indicate an impending loss-of-pressure or loss-of-coolant event in someone's core, correct?
I was too late. Should've known.
It was only a zombie attack on the President. They decided they could attack our government by causing an earthquake in Ann Arbor, which inadvertantly resulted in minor damage to two nuclear reactors near Cedar Point and South Bend. (Zombies are experimenting in causing the perfect storm and got a little out of control.) The military responded by blowing up all suspicious looking objects from Pennsylvania to the Illinois border. Everyone calmed down as soon as the MSU zombie studies team showed up. The MSU team persuaded the zombies to enjoy a Coke, and sing Kumbaya with the Sparty Mascot. Now...
Let's be thankful we are so close to East Lansing: It should give one a good feeling of security, and reassurance. Reports of couches on fire were false rumors caused by an alien host with a lousy sense of humor who were on their way to destroy another planet. That is all.
Avett Brothers Paranoia in B flat
So now we know why Brian Kelly turned into the Purple People Eater.
I have a few friends who are nuclear engineers in the area, and one actually just checked out the area with a geiger counter and it read completely normal.
Good. I don't want to catch the cancer. Plus I think the winds blow it away from Madison anyway. Good luck with the mutants & zombies, Ann Arbor!
I hear it was caught on film though...
"Nucelear", Lisa.....It's pronounced "Nucelear".
This went down...
