I read yesterday that the Japanese government resisted the demand to re-open some Japanese nuclear plants. I was surprised because I did not know they were all closed.
Of course, Japanese citizens are resisting because they cannot forget the thousands of their neighbors sickened and killed by radiation leaks last year, right after the tsunami.
In this connection, it is noteworthy that the French authorities still keep under lock and key thousands of specimens of two-headed fish and several hundred octopuses with legs coming directly out of their heads from their South Pacific possessions. The French had more than 200 atmospheric nuclear tests in that area in the seventies with the expected consequences on the local fauna.
PS There were no Japanese citizens sickened or killed by radiations last year. There are no two-headed fish anywhere. Octopuses with legs coming out their mouth do abound in the South Pacific. In fact, that’s what they look like everywhere, always have looked that way.
Why would you believe that kind of stuff? Worth asking yourself, isn’t it?
