    California-Hawaii dream faded.

    ever since i was a young surfer i wanted to live in California or Hawaii. Now with the radiation threat on the west coast i have never been more content with being an eastcoast surfer. Dress warm and all your wildest dreams can come true.

    Me too, now get ready for Brew.

    I'm still not content here though.

    I see you're new, so there are some recent threads kicking around about this. Fukushima leak update, I believe.

    Are you aching for the ultimate discontentment? Well if you are I have the place for you! Go west young man. No not that west, the west coast of Florida, where disappointment abounds. It can kill stoke in a Belmar minute. Try it, you'll hate it.

    I wouldn't let a few blog articles passed around social media scare you from moving out west.
    I haven't seen any true evidence that there is anything to be scared out regarding radiation affects in CA, HI from the japan disaster. I would be more scared of earthquakes out in CA, or maybe smog in LA, or maybe great whites in norcal. But, dont take my word on it, do your own research.

    Beach residents in Washington State have been picking up stuff off of the local beaches from the Japanese earthquake since last spring.

    Nobody, as of this writing, has yet to fall over, mutate or glow.

    This is what our lovely governing humans did (and still do) to their fellow citizens:

    "During the 1950s, the mushroom clouds from atmospheric tests could be seen for almost 100 mi (160 km). The city of Las Vegas experienced noticeable seismic effects, and the distant mushroom clouds, which could be seen from the downtown hotels, became tourist attractions. St. George, Utah, received the brunt of the fallout of above-ground nuclear testing in the Yucca Flats/Nevada Test Site. Winds routinely carried the fallout of these tests directly through St. George and southern Utah. Marked increases in cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, bone cancer, brain tumors, and gastrointestinal tract cancers, were reported from the mid-1950s through 1980."

    There's a great documentary called The Day After Trinity that covers the Manhattan Project in it's entirety. A lot of the physicists involved were interviewed, several of them in tears when discussing the implications of their work. Also interviews residents living nearby at the time, one of whom mentions how the test explosion was so bright that her blind sister saw it. In my humble opinion, the day we figured out how to recreate what happens on the sun is the day we sealed our fate.

    Seen, well said. And I'm going to check out that doc, thanks for that referral.
