re: #233 Dr Lizardo

Living here as I do in the eastern part of the Czech Republic, I’ve wondered in the past what would’ve happened if that anticipated radioactive steam explosion hadn’t been prevented.

Yeesh. It’s disturbing to think about. There’s a good chance (from what I can gather) that it’d have been the worst disaster in human history, leaving vast swathes of Eastern Europe essentially uninhabitable.

As it was, Eastern Czech Republic got a pretty good wallop of radioactive fallout from the Chernobyl disaster.

During that period, a friend and her family were living in Amsterdam while her husband was working on a joint venture with a Dutch firm on behalf of his employer. A lifetime non-smoker, my friend passed way about 15 years ago from lung cancer; I always wondered if she were another victim from the Chernobyl accident.
