It’s not something that’s in school curriculums here. Even I had no idea this happened until I found some stuff on YouTube one night.
Rewatching HBO-Chernobyl. This time with my little sister who’s 16. She’s incredibly fascinated with it. She’s never heard of this disaster until now...
I've only seen clips, it looks like a good laugh as from what I've seen it's on par with a Godzilla movie in terms of the science. "Oh my God, his boot is cut, the evil magic will seep in!", or "if you remove uranium from water, and put it back in water it will go off like a thermonuclear bomb!!!1".
We don't even cover our own nuclear accidents very well. Most people in the US think that Three Mile Island was the first nuclear accident within the US. There was a partial meltdown at the Fermi 1 plant near Warren Michigan more than a decade earlier.
Not quite, there’s a scene where a firefighter picks up a piece of graphite and minutes later he’s screaming in pain... I don’t know how firefighting gloves would’ve affected radiation burns, but it seemed believable... about the only things I had trouble with are the scenes with the old man in the meeting with the big speech. The last bit about “we seal off the city, and cut off the phone lines to reduce the spread of misinformation” was believable, the rest, ehhh. There’s another part where the firefighters wife got through into the hospital while everyone else was blocked out....
Altered Carbon season 2 was binged on Saturday. Not as deep or dark as the first season but nowhere near as bad as the reviews I'd read made out.
I keep forgetting about it, I'm 3 eps in. I guess I just don't have the time, or if I do, I forgetI finished it last night, binged the last 3 episodes.
It took me 5 episodes to really get into that series, so to me it started weak, but ended strong.
