    Victorian and Frontosa Keeper

    Post by me on Sun May 01, 2011 10:59 pm

    Hi, my name is Todd, but I am known on COV and Frontosa.com as well as some other forums. I keep some very rare victorians, as well as two Frontosa variants, Mikula and Mpimbwe. I am always happy to meet more fish keepers. I am also looking for the user that registered on COV as Fishandfeathers, not sure if you have the same user name here, but I am the one who owns the parents to your new Vics coming from Fern, and am hoping to work out the shipping of the Fulu with you as well, so please PM me.

    You pretty much have to search independent science and news boards to know the real story here fern. The government is being forthcoming with iodine and cesium levels and ignoring the much more deadly and long lasting elements like plutonium and strontium among many others. 160,000!! spent Plutonium rods in the number 3 reactor blew more than a mile away, many melted, vaporized and exploded, and many others ended up in the Ocean. Plutonium bonds with Oxygen as plutonium oxide so this means it went everywhere including the US despite the media in the US and Japans claims that plutonium is too heavy to go anywhere. If it were solid this would be true. But rods laying around in the dirt melt and thus do not remain solid but become gas. This is extremely significant because unlike Iodine and Cesium Plutonium has a shelf life of up to 300,000 years and one particle of plutonium dust can give a person cancer if inhaled or consumed, and unfortunately this is happening with certainty in Japan and Likeliness in the US. Sorry but fern asked, and someone should give the real news.

    I totally agree. Governments will just cover(media block) or sugar coat it. Are you in a half way safe area (I know there are no safe areas left in Japan)?

    We are about 150 miles from Fukushima. We avoid tap water and all food products to the east. It breaks my heart when locals tell me not to worry because the food is now safe. I want to yell out "they are lying to you!". Economy over people is the way of our governments these days. It's all one silly monopoly game in which no one ever wins, and the sooner we all speak up and send them directly to jail the sooner people like me can stop feeling the need to rant Wink

    Here's a link that cuts through the BS and provides real facts

    Thanks Fern, we are still discussing either that or moving to the far north or far south. Both are much lower levels. I would even go so far to say the far south likely has lower levels of plutonium than parts of the US at this point. Remember the first 7 days after the number 3 reactor blew most of that vaporized plutonium headed strait to the west coast. Kinda the saving grace for much of Japan (hopefully) but also the unseen threat for the US. Trace levels of plutonium are much more significant than trace levels of iodine or cesium. Hence the lack of info. I promise me and the misses are being as safe as possible Fern, but I am not convinced yet that moving back to the west coast is much better.

    Lol, but then I gotta deal with tarballs Laughing

    South Japan is very tempting cause it has white sand beaches and warm water, probably not quite as warm as florida, but there are tiger sharks so it must be close. My wife worries about the typoons, but hurricanes (typhoons) don't scare me as we get hurricane speed winds in Washington fairly often. There is the risk of tsunami down there though. North Japan has the fewest earthquakes, and I suspect the oldest volcano so likely not much worry there. But man I miss white sand beaches. Either way we will probably be hunkered down here for awhile yet. Working on getting a license so we can move with relative ease. I should've gotten my international license before leaving the states, but just didn't know it was such a pain to get here. For the time being I am going to get the lowest class motorcycle license so if S hits the F we can flee at 30mph Sleep

    LOL, well if we move south my official plan is 1) live 100 feet or more above sea level 2) have access to a beach with few people/cars around 3) have a bad ass street/dirt bike that never fails to start very close by anytime we visit the beach. I used to ride motocross as a kid so I am not at all joking. If a Tsunami hits down south watch the news for the chubby American and petite Japanese girl on a big ol bike bombing up the nearest hill !!!!!!!!!!!!! afro
