Bogus Nuclear Fallout Map Fans Flames Regarding Fear of Fallout on West Coast of U.S.

This is bullshit and bad fear-mongering. DO NOT TAKE POTASSIUM IODIDE/IODINE UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO. It can cause serious health risks and should only be taken as a last resort.

I have linked to the Snopes article debunking this fraudulent piece. The mere fact that someone would spread misinformation or disinformation at a time like this is very disheartening to me. While the world praises Japan's lack of looting and ability to act calmly with dignity and compassion during a time of tremendous pressure and mounting crisis, what do the rest of us do? Watch T.V., loot or think about looting, buy stuff we don't really need for ridiculously inflated prices... and try to scare the shit out of each other unnecessarily. What else is new?

Oh, and don't worry so much people. If it gets serious over here, we'll be able to find more Potassium Iodide... so don't mortgage the farm yet just to get yer hands on 14 days worth of pills.

Speaking of which... how many of you have two weeks worth of food, water and medicine stored up?
