Nobody really understood the dangers back then and nobody really cared; plus it was all done for national security. However once they built nuclear reactors not to far from residential areas, people became more concern about the potential dangers of radiation.(01-30-2017, 07:18 PM)dclements Wrote:(01-30-2017, 01:19 PM)DaJavoo Wrote:Sounds reasonable enough for me.(01-29-2017, 08:42 PM)dclements Wrote: Anything that is too wild and crazy I don't have the time for even if I wanted to (partly because I have ADHD and get bored easily), but I think the 0.1% or 0.01% out there might be useful information.

Well, dc ~ welcome to the forum ~ 1st beer is on us.
If the MSM could figger out a way to do exactly ^^^ that, there prolly would BE no CT forums/sites.
There's not really any WalMart of CT out there. My advice ~ pick an end of the bone you find tasty and then research (chew) the hell out of it. Either inquire where you find the morsels or post back here with the skinny and a link and let others add/help with an observation or two.
The 2nd part is helpful, as many of us have travelled the road and more or less know where the potholes are. Then again, with fresh eyes you'll see much of what may have been missed.
Best of luck dc!
BTW. In another thread I created a link to a share where I have an UFO/Majestic-12 operation manual and in case you don't see it there I will add it here:
US ARMY - UFO Official Manual.pdf
As I mentioned in the other thread I found it while looking for other stuff on a peer to peer network years back. As far as I can tell it is public knowledge since there are web sites out there that share it too. If you or anyone else that chooses to download it and look at it, please share any interesting tid bits (whether it be something crediting or discrediting it's authenticity or other stuff) with the rest of us.
I have posted a few links in the other thread that I came across by doing a search on the title of the manual, "SOM1-01 to 12D1-3-11-1". I can repost them here if anyone wants me to.
Also I made a post in the "The Fukushima Disaster" in order to try to discredit/reduce any negative news people may have heard about the accident and nuclear power in general. As a person being pro-nuke (my dad was the head nuclear physicist in charge of the clean up at TMI/Three Mile Island) I believe that nuclear power is one of the safest and cheapest forms of energy we have. I understand people fear of nuclear power but my personal belief is that most people have not enough knowledge be able to rational weigh the pros and cons as well as the people who trained and/or actually work in the industry. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if I have knowledge of why certain information is false or fake I will try to share that as well.
Welcome and my nephew too is in a managerial position in a nuclear plant and says the exact same thing.
The magnitude of radiation released during the nuclear bomb tests are probably much, much, higher then anything that can happen during a accident at a nuclear power plant. This is common sense because with a bomb your DELIBERATELY creating a large area that is devastated and filled with radiation and radioactive debris and with a reactor there are nearly endless safety measures in place (whether it be in the US or elsewhere and/or old or new nuclear technology) to prevent harm to the public.
I know that some of the early recklessness by researchers and/or other groups caused people to become frightened by nuclear technology/power, however ALL technology comes with it's own risks and often there are dangers with anything that hasn't been used before. When steam engines where first built, people often died in the hundreds during an explosion on something like a steamboat. However back then the opportunity to get from point A to point B was worth the risk. Nowadays people are often so risk adverse (such as the people who don't want to vaccinate their kids), that they create more problems than if they didn't do anything in the first place.
