    I saw those pictures yesterday, they are heartbreaking.:(
    The images are burned in my brain now, i'm still shock knowing that there's a kid living with it's brain outside the skull.

    I read the timeline of how the "accident" ocurred, it almost sounds like the plot of a really bad B movie, but i actually happened.
    They ignored a lot of safety issues and warnings just go foward with experiment.
    At the end, the guy in charge was covered in radiation and had to be buried in a lead coffin!!!:eek:

    Yep and the Soviet Government did not release the reactor blew for three whole days...then they released some small article buried in page 10 acting like it was nothing, held a parade in an irradiated area. That Soviet Government was so inept back then, not much better now I am afraid.

    I didn't say it was difficult, just obnoxious.

    That wasn't his butt, it was more like a flesh fannypack that's holding his kidneys.

    This is unbelievable. What's worse is that I've never even heard of this incident.
