Something weird is about to happen

Some strange coincidences will start to happen.. Not sure if it has to do with maybe something happening to a lot of people with the same name, or something else.. But something is afoot.

A space ship will land and we'll find out that God is a turtle.

The faithful will respond by fashioning eyewear, accessories, and stubby crosses out of real tortoise shell. Fridays will be reserved for holy communion - turtle soup.

Earth turtles will become extinct and Turtle God will ask slowly, "WTF?"

It'll start happening to some people first, and then happen to the rest later. A lot of people will be affected by this thing or things that will happen eventually.

Thanks, r81. Now I'm sufficiently terrified.

Can you give me a better read on this quote from Enenews? It was the translation from the farmer about his cows. It looks like a literal translation and it doesn't make any sense.

[quote]Stop Fukushima plants to die if necessary. We need someone to die, someone must die to settle it down.

Is he suggesting that Japan execute the officials? Or is he concerned that more people will die?

by Anonymousreply 9001/28/2012

r90, I really don't know. I read the transcript too. So sad. Maybe he means only by people dying will the country sit up and demand their country full disclosure? The govt clearly doesn't give a shit by the radiation readings or outside people saying that it is dangerous and the evacuation zone should be larger.

You could ask the Miku who writes the diary.

Did you read about the food given to children at the schools?

What I find is the scariest (and a lot of time hard to understand) is all the workers from different nuclear facilities weighing in their opinion in the comments.

I don't understand why Japan doesn't ask for help. This is a global problem and I would think everyone would help. Bring in all the best scientists worldwide.

They have just recently asked for Chernobly docs. That should have been requested in March 2011.

Also, did you see that the people who mark radiation maps for the USA will no longer be the govt/outside company but a nuclear lobbyist company. F-ing scary.

by Anonymousreply 9101/28/2012

I think the govt and industry is worried about bad p.r.

by Anonymousreply 9201/28/2012

Agree with r92. Japan is still very hung up on the whole "face saving" idea. At the expense of the people living in the area.

I think that's why a lot of this hasn't gotten out to the MSM. If Japan asked for help then the scope of the problem would be known and people would "talk" and bring "shame" to the corporations and the government. Especially now since the problem has just gotten worse. The government would (rightly) be blamed for covering up the severity of the problem.

Then people would demand an accounting and that just isn't going to happen (yet - I hope it does in the end).

by Anonymousreply 9301/28/2012

Agree about PR.

There was an article probably back in Dec about all the over-sized deformed fruits and veggies growing in Japan. Govt blamed it on farmers using too much fertilizer.

And the freakish fish and gigantic clams. The govt said the tsunami turned up the clams from the ocean bottom and those ones are usually oversized.

I am glad I have 2 people here interested in it and to chat to.

by Anonymousreply 9401/28/2012

R94, do you think that Mt Fuji had anything to do with the earthquakes? Is the area around the volcano under any sort of alert or watch?

Let's face it, if that thing goes off, it's going to be like a nuclear winter. In more ways than one.

It's like Japan is getting one disaster after another and I'm concerned it will reach a point where there are no emergency responders.

by Anonymousreply 9701/28/2012

I don't think so r95, but this is what I am reading by the posters on the sites.

Since I am no expert by any means.. we have to wait for others to comments. Because the govt / Tepco don't release info... sadly the experts on the sites I mentioned wait for videos of the plant noticing smoke, "sparkles" (I know, they see something we don't), weird colored flames from the ground, or if radiation spikes in the next few days... to see if a hydrogen explosion.

I do check the blog daily for comments.

I think they are waiting for the 27th's reading from the earthquakes to see if a rise in radiation.

Please excuse my terms or explanations being so simple.. I truly am the last person who should try and explain ;). ha ha

I am going to go look for any external articles on Mt Fuji at the ene site.

maybe 2/3 weeks ago on the diary someone in Tokyo posted a video of 17/20 military helicopters going down the coast.

We thought it was about evacuations because of the possible hydrogen explosions (which will result in the mother of all explosions).

I'll go find it.

Shit, r98, check out this quote from another site about the workers cleaning up the mess -

[quote]"Right now, 70% of workers at the plant are migrant contract workers from all over Japan. Most of them have never worked at nuke plants before. The pay is 8000 yen to 13,000 yen [US$104 to $170] per day. Most of them are either in their 20s who are finding it difficult to land on any job, or in their 60s who have "graduated" from the previous jobs."

Report: ‘Empty’ Reactor No. 4 was actually filled with nuclear fuel — Only a matter of time before melt-out

[...] The nuclear worker is trustworthy. [...] Please read the post below as a story I heard from a Fukushima worker. [...]

Tepco was planning to start reactor 4 in the AM of 311.

(The nuclear fuel was in reactor.) [...]

Soon after the earthquake hit it, meltdown started.

Because reactor 4 was stand-by, cooling system could not be started either. [...]

The damage of reactor 4 is serious. [...]

In the container vessel of reactor4, melted fuel is stocked, but there is no technology developed to pick it up, it’s only the matter of time for it to have melt-out. The longest time would be one year.

If another earthquake hits it, it’s over.

Technically speaking, if it goes melt-out, it would flow to the sea.

Pacific ocean side of Japan and west side of America won’t be inhabitable anymore.

............... it's shit like this I don't understand and the other people do that drives me crazy.

Possible release of radioactive steam at a nuclear plant west of Chicago.

I've been watching the news in Chi-town for several days and they never even covered it!

Which plant west of Chicago? I didn't hear of that.

Two nuclear plants with unexplained breakdowns within a couple days?

r169, I think all the nuclear plants are getting older.

At our SoCal plant, the weird thing was all sorts of "new" generator tubes were showing extreme (80%+) wear.

Forgot the worn tube link:

Worn tubes found San Onofre nuclear facility after leak

February 2, 2012 | 3:39 pm PST

Nuclear regulation officials said Thursday that extensive wear had been found on the tubes inside a unit at the San Onofre nuclear plant, where another unit was placed off-line after a leak earlier this week.

Dozens of relatively new tubes that carry radioactive water in a steam generator showed "many, many years" worth of wear, even though the tubing is 22 months old, said Victor Dricks, a spokesman for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Nearly 70 tubes, made from a metal alloy and formed into a U-shape, had 20% of their interior lining worn off, while hundreds more had 10% of the lining deteriorated. More than 9,000 tubes are in the generator.

Dricks said that some of the tubes will require repair, while others will probably have to be replaced.

But officials for Southern California Edison, which operates the facility and is a majority owner, say it's too premature to make any determination, and that continued tests will be conducted. The unit was off-line for a scheduled maintenance period of several months for technology upgrades and fuel replacement, said Gil Alexander, an Edison spokesman.

It is unclear why the tubes are showing so much wear.

The commission's findings come on the heels of a leak in a tube Tuesday, prompting operators to shut down a reactor. However, officials said it was a miniscule amount of radiation that did not endanger the public.

Japanese government is going to build a remote Japan in India

Posted by Mochizuki on January 14th, 2012 · 14 Comments

Japanese government is going to build a remote Japanese city in Chennai of India by cooperating with private sector.

It can accommodate 50,000 people with factory complex, shopping mall, and hospital etc..

Edano, minister of economy visited Chennal on 1/10/2012 to ask for the state’s help.

Mizuho corporate bank and JGC corporation are going to invest 4 billion JPY on the local development company.

Factory complex (2.3 km2) will start being sold from this summer, they will already start operating the factories in 2013.

Residential area will have 2 km2 area, consist of resort city beside Indian ocean, which will be developed from 2013. Japanese shopping mall, golf course, hospitals with Japanese doctors will be included too.

This plan was announced without any advance notice, and starting the factories in 2013 is really soon.

It’s giving some Japanese people the impression that Japanese government is building the ark only for rich people.

bump because this thread is worth it.

Not yet, OP. Towards the end of summer, I think.

What - I'm not sure yet. Maybe a big volcano or something that causes a lot of ash (not necessarily a fire but something spewing ash).

Yeah, Yellowstone. 12/21/12.

Do you feel like there is this real negative blah energy in the air, like we are on the eve of a real major Depression or maybe WWIII?

by Anonymousreply 18102/19/2012

In some ways, I hope that's true, R181, not so much the depression bit but rather something revolutionary that severely modifies society and government worldwide.

Perhaps the brown men of Islam and the yellow men of Asia are about to rise up and claim their place from the white man.

Up for devastation with a weird touch.

Why can't we ever think that things are on the verge of getting better? Why are things always getting worse, instead of better?
