      Those pics are amazing, the slidey before/after thing was pretty nifty though.

      I prefer the before images.

      Here's my past life when I lived in Kiev.........

      When in Kiev you should take a right and drive to:



      Then you arrive at a security post 30km from a power station?



      Then you try and convince the security guard you are from the International Atomic Energy Agency. (Note VAG Content!)

      We failed



      I understand you can tours these days. Radiation levels were next to nothing when we lived there back in '96-'98.

      Yep, the green one near the top left is a 20-footer like the ones we get shipped down from Asia regularly. Thrown around like lego blocks. Just crazy...

      I honestly cannot believe what I read there (the Facebook stuff). How can anyone even think like that today? As a child, I was told about the cruelty by Japanese soldiers who invaded Malaysia (just hours before Pearl Harbour actually). Things like rape of Chinese Malaysian women was far from the worst. Try acts such as throwing babies in the air to land on a Japanese soldier's swords. Both sides of my grandparents were from the city where the Japanese stormed ashore Malaysian soil, so there were many horror stories that they and their friends endured. It was one of the cruellest occupation in history (but one that is little known), with the purging of 50,000 Chinese people in Malaysia/ Singapore. Anyway, my point is, eventhough my family were directly affected by Japanese actions some 70 years ago, I do not know of any family member who would ever come close to thinking the way those pathetic Americans do. That is just so sad, so so sad.

      Does that mean we will see less new Camrys on the roads! Oh wait, those are made here.

      Even sadder that you're getting so worked up about a bunch of ill-informed inbreds.
      Just take comfort in the fact that many of them will develop type-2 diabetes, have their homes reposessed or be bled dry financially due to crippling health insurance costs. God bless America!

      hahahaha ****, you just made my day. Mostly because it's true.

      It's been interesting watching all the bull**** that is being reported - so called journalism, my arse - what happened to verifying things first? And not as hard as it seems - have been listening to a guy in Japan who is translating Japanese news reports into English, and so far has proved to be the most accurate by far. When everyone else was screaming "chernobyl' in their shrill ill-informed voices, a few of us were hearing what was actually going on, and it was backed up by people actually living in Japan at the moment.

      And despite the Internet allowing this kind of bull**** to spread faster than speeding light, it also allows those of us who don't believe everything we read, to actually be in contact with those actually experiencing what is happening. After Christchurch and Japan, I really don't trust what I hear from the Australian press and TV news - even ABC24News was hours behind in their information.

      And to be honest, over there they are more worried about the aftermath of the quake and tsunami, even though the foreign media seems to be transfixed on the nuclear plant issues. The 'sensationalism' of the quake and tsunami isn't as good as the 'possibility' of a nuclear meltdown for their bloody ratings.

      As mentioned by someone else, if any country can handle a disaster like this, it is the Japanese - they have their s*it together!! And also mentioned - if they have nuclear plants that were built around 40 years ago close to the epicentre that have survived a 9.0 quake - what other 'guarantees' do people want? Life is inherently dangerous FFS and some of us don't need to be wrapped up in cotton wool!

      You watch the Japanese resilience unfold - it will be impressive!

      I'm lucky enough to get NHK on my cable TV service, and it seems to be by far the most accurate TV source.
