    I can't stand Ann Coulter either, but what she's saying has some basis in fact: Radiation Hormesis. The Taiwanese example she cites was a poorly done study but the workers who were involved in the Windscale fire were studied until they died and I recall they had a lower rate of cancer than the local population, although being a small cohort it's not the sort of evidence that would get me standing near a nasty nuclear source.

    I like the clock on the nightstand. Got just the right retro Venture Bros. look to it.

    I had to go and look up Venture Bros porn after reading Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer's chat with io9. They were right, some of it's actually very well executed.

    @Alastair
    Sorry to be pedantic, but it read:

    dead

    and was changed to:

    Not dead.

    Important difference, as it's mine!

    @celan,

    Maybe I'm just damaged, but all I could think was "why on earth are they wasting all that bacon?"

    No, you're on the right track. It is, if you believe some of the commenters, a $263 million waste, which supposedly could have been prevented with $63 million worth of medicine for Hoof and Mouth Disease.
    Totally disturbing regardless of my feelings about the deliciousness of pork products.

    @Lemon Laser Betty

    ...lolwut.

    I mean, what the fuck is there to push up on a seven year-old? I've heard in the past that people seem to be going through puberty sooner with each passing generation, but CHRIST, it can't be that soon!

    some countries do not medicate or vaccinate for hoof and mouth, and this may influence South Korea's reaction to the outbreak

    Currently, the World Organisation for Animal Health recognizes countries to be in one of three disease states with regards to FMD: FMD present with or without vaccination, FMD-free with vaccination, and FMD-free without vaccination. Countries that are designated FMD-free without vaccination have the greatest access to export markets, and therefore many developed nations, including Canada, the United States, and the UK, work hard to maintain their current FMD-free without vaccination status. (wikipedia)


    considering that the US hasn't had an outbreak of the disease since 1929, it's hard to critique the approach. on the other hand the UK had two bad outbreaks last decade with the same status.

    on a related subject, if you eat pork raised in the US, this shouldn't disturb you. pigs raised in the US as pork wouldn't know the difference if they were buried alive.

    *edit: the last comment not assuming anyone on this thread eats smithfield pork

    Now I'm curious about
    these two.

    Also, this is a great short on Vimeo which I can't embed. If you know how to, be my guest.
