    That's a map of the I-131 doses received by Americans from the Nevada atmospheric nuclear bomb testing in the 1950's. With a half-life of around 8 days, the threat posed by I-131 is no longer current.

    I can't be the only one here who finds the 1950s to be a fascinating era. I wish I could have been around in those days. What I really would like to see is a good, old-fashioned above-ground nuclear test. Mushroom cloud. Not that I'm a proponent of what those nukes were used for, but I'd still like to watch a test firsthand. We live in boring times, my friends. :(


    If you're up for an interesting read, check out The Plutonium Files by Eileen Welsome. It's as thick as War and Peace but I couldn't put it down.

    Darn, and here I thought this was going to be a thread about my favorite video game series of all time. Still a pretty neat map showing the spread of the fallout from those tests, though.
