Facebook causes Radiation Hysteria In Unalaska

OK, So Lets just Breakdown the Facts here: http://www.epa.gov/radiation/rert/radnet-dutchharbor-exp-rate.html This is actual Data collected here in Unalaska and the Port Of Dutch Harbor. The People monitoring and reporting on the equipment are staying right here at the Hotel. As you can CLEARLY see, the radiation levels have never gone much above 0.01 MILIREM. So What does that mean in perspective? Basically all of the people that are on Facebook today freaking out about how much Radiation we are getting here since we have the highest in the Country are actually getting about 10X more Radiation from sitting in front of their computers making comments. You know, it's pretty sad when I have to be the voice of Reason. Have a great Day!

Soooo.... are you saying that egg I put in a pan outside my house might take a little longer to fry up? Damn it! Yet another great example of the island counter culture. Thanks for keeping us in check. :)

There is nothing on Facebook except the link to the ADN news and facebook friends joking about it. You are once again being led down the garden path by your spies that know nothing about what is really going on. The hysteria is being caused by people that are NOT on facebook. Go back to your Sarah Palin blogs. Same mentality.

Has Unalaska received any Japanese items washing up on shore yet? Apparently California has debris from earthquake damage.

Alaskagal98 great comment - you got right to the point, and summed it perfectly! Couldn't agree more!

Okay...you CHOOSE to read a blog that you were not forced to sign up to follow, then read something you don't agree with, so you tell the blogger to stay out of your life! Is it just me, or is something off there? Just askin'.

Uhh, pardon me for stating the obvious, but who does Alaskagal98 think she is? Preaching about people getting a life and staying out of hers, but she's the hypocrite who can't resist stalking this blog. Pot, meet kettle! Be gone, Alaskagal98! You have no power here!

And Just so EVERYONE understands, I based this joking update based on what CNN reported of the Comments on Facebook about people not wanting to eat fish or crab from Dutch Harbor because of The Radiation. Just Google it online and you can see comments about two headed fishes on almost every article out there.
Did I specifically say ANYTHING about the Local Facebook Community?
No.
I was talking about the general hysteria caused by two many people making comments with very little evidence to back it up, Not making a Slam on Local Facebook Users.
Unlike some people, if I have a problem with you I will say it to your face, not with backstabbing comments placed on a blog or Facebook page.
That some people took it this way just means that they are ACTIVELY LOOKING to find fault with anything I do and say, so NO MATTER WHAT I SAY OR DO they will find fault with it, take things out of context, and probably bitch about it on FaceBook.
Kinda Sad Really.
Although, unlike some I think everyone has the right to their opinion, and no comments will be deleted, no matter how intentionally hurtful they are.
Have a Great Day!

Sounds like CB is actively finding fault with FB. Why not blame Twitter, CNN , Fox etc, instead of people having fun on FB. Alaskagal. You hit a nerve.

Facebook is friends only. Your blog is open.
And what the hell does Dan Y mean by island counter culture?
Alaska girl asked you to stop commenting on Fb crap.
Many people on the island are concerned about radiation, but this did NOT come from FB.

Well, can't leave it at 13 - bad, bad juju! Both of you (anonymous and alaskagal98 Sonia) - get a life somewhere else - if you don't have nothing nice to say, don't blog it! I for one appreciate all that CB blogs about and to have some idiots get on here and stir up controversy - well, I guess you got it because you got me going and all the way from the lower 48's.

CB - On a lighter note....have you found any interesting sea glass lately? Have a great day!! Mary

HEY CB how is Alexander? I always enjoy seeing pictures of him, he has grown so much. Has Mr. Otter appeared yet in the bay?

I'm sorry but those who post under the tag name "Anonymous" get a life and go back to your Baby Barry Life. As others have suggested, why don't you disinvite (I know, it's not really a word) yourself off of CB's blog.
BTW MR. A, how did the O Family enjoy Latin America? I heard it's marvelous this time of year, especially when those of us who were stuck with snow (yes, we had snow in NOVA while the Obummers were down touring who had to shovel because my husband is off to somewhere near Libya-oh that's right it's not a war is it but some kinetic action?? but I digress) so I'm glad that Michelle, Barry and the girls had a fabby time on our dime. If you are so insulted, I would suggest you find a way to disengage.
To CB and everyone else-I always enjoy reading what everyone has to say.
