Red menace

May 4, 2012

And Korea isn’t far.

 

First, black stuff. Now, red stuff turns up too, on Japan’s west coast:

What’s more, only a short stretch of sea separates the west coast of Japan from South Korea.

By the way, readers may be interested to know that as soon as I left Seoul and flew to Southeast Asia, many of my symptoms characteristic of mild radiation exposure — such as irritated eyes and swollen lymph glands — disappeared.

Does this mean it’s time to get out of South Korea too? Not necessarily … but radioactivity readings from Korea would be most interesting to see.

Anyone in Seoul got a radiation meter?
