    and this isnt a one time release, so what are you suppose to stay in yur bubble for what?  If you really do have it sealed, you have about 8-12 hours of air give or take. If you dont have it sealed, you are sitting in a radiated soup.

    Get the hell out of there is the wise thing if it is indeed possible..

    Bad is never good until worse happens

    •  Seriously, how do you seal against radiation? (0+ / 0-)

      People would just repeat the "seal your house and stay indoors" orders and I would wonder if I was missing something. If you seal up your house against outside air (pretending it is even possible to find every air leak), how long before you suffocate? You have to have an exchange of air with the outside, i.e. replenish oxygen remove carbon dioxide, at least through the normal gaps and pores of most buildings, if not a dedicated ventilation system as in specially-designed sealed buildings. And even in high tech wealthy Japan I doubt many homes have ventilation with the kind of filters you'd need - if they exist. Or maybe if you have enough plants to help provide oxygen and remove CO2 . . . .

      So I presume this is just one of those BS orders issued by authorities to fool people into thinking they actually have some control over the situation?
