Snake haired bitch. I found it on the internet therefore, it must be true.. The is the closest humanity has ever come tn creating Medusa. If you were to leek at

I found it on the internet therefore, it must be true.

The is the closest humanity has ever come tn creating
Medusa.
If you were to leek at this, you would die instantly. End of story,
The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of
the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It' s called the ' s Feet and
weighs
hundreds torts, but is eney a couple meters across.,
Oh, and regarding the Medusa thing? This picture was taken
through a mirror around the corner ofthe hallway. Because the
wheeled camera they sent up to take pictures of it was destroyed
by the radiation.

Radioactivity decays over time, in general what is completely lethal today can be fairly innocuous in some years or decades. Depends on when the different photos were taken.

Radioactive elements have half lifes, which shows how many atoms decay and send out alpha, beta, and other forms of energy hazardous to humans. The pure corium would still fry your ass within seconds. It'll take hundreds of thousands of years for this to become safe enough to be within fifty miles of

i want to know why someone took a picture of the dude taking a picture
User avatar #95 to #18 - truffle (07/13/2013) [-]
to prove that the dude who took a picture , was actually the dude who took a picture?

is there a picture , of the dude who took the picture to prove: a dude took a picture of a dude taking a picture of the elephants foot? in that case i'd want to see it!

i actually had to read that twice.

The original was taken around the time of Chernobyl, while that lava is cooled a not a radiated than it was when Chernobyl happened.

"The original was taken around the time of Chernobyl. That lava is cooled and not as radioactive as it was when Chernobyl happened"

Sorry, my brain just kept tripping all over your sentence.
#275 to #142 - anon (07/14/2013) [-]
There were three stages to the contamination resulting in the elephant's foot.

The initial stage where it was above 1000 degrees Celsius, the cooling phase (still extremely high, but less so) and the condensing stage, which in the end was exposed to water, further increasing the contamination.

The first and third stages meant certain death.

what is this?
User avatar #26 to #20 - ivoryhammer (07/13/2013) [-]
Yeah it's from STALKER, a series of games set in an alternate future in an area called "The Zone", in Ukraine where the Chernobyl reactors blew up, the player is a STALKER, which is a scavenger that looks for irradiated relics, you compete with other STALKERS, and the military. It's worth checking out. Very buggy, but fun.

Radiation dies down after long periods of time, and you can survive being radiated, especially if you can get medical attention. I would also like to point out that someone took a photo of the guy taking a photo of it.

User avatar #115 to #112 - RiflemanFunny ONLINE (07/13/2013) [-]
Or it could be that the radiation died down due to the fact that that was taken several years after it.
#276 to #115 - anon (07/14/2013) [-]
This was taken during an intermediate stage in the formation of the elephant's foot.

It's still deadly, it's radiation level HAS dropped, but not nearly as fast as many people think.
User avatar #282 to #276 - RiflemanFunny ONLINE (07/14/2013) [-]
Yeah. Even in ten years, I wouldn't go near it.
User avatar #119 to #112 - folkflunky (07/13/2013) [-]
This picture was taken about a decade later. The radiation levels lowered, and even though it's still radioactive, dying because of radioactiveness is pretty strange, since there aren't a lot of places that have too much radioactiveness. Worst case scenario, you'll feel sick as **** and puke a lot, but you won't die, mostly with special medical attention.
#63 to #32 - jancz ONLINE (07/13/2013) [-]
he just took some rad-x and radaway so he is alive

Okay, so I get the whole thing that radiation is pretty bad.
And that this ************ sends out so much radiation that it would instantly kill you if you were to appear next to it.

But what I never understood is how it kills you.
I understand that radiation during a long time will give you cancer, but how does this intense one-time radiation kill you in seconds?

Is it so hot that it will reduce you to ash?
Does it give you supercancer, which grows to lethal sizes in seconds?
Does it mess with the nerves in your brain and kill you that way?

Picture only moderatly related
#87 to #83 - WrightVGC (07/13/2013) [-]
**WrightVGC rolled a random image posted in comment #4748 at The Cider Barrel ** Radiation is just tiny alpha, beta and gamma particles. Small enough to literally push through your body and cells. I imagine you were exposed to enough of these particles instantaneously you basically just cook. Just an educated guess but google is your friend.
User avatar #109 to #87 - shadesofbacon (07/13/2013) [-]
>Gamma particles
Dude, gamma radiation is a wave.
#143 to #109 - tranminh (07/13/2013) [-]
gamma rays are waves, but alpha beta and gamma particles do indeed exist and they are related to radioactivity
#91 to #83 - zekaizer (07/13/2013) [-]
In the long term, it breaks your DNA, and kills you by making your body malfunction in huge ways, one example is cancer.

In the short term, it basically cooks you. Think microwave, but a much higher wavelength.
User avatar #242 to #91 - popkornking (07/13/2013) [-]
Shorter wavelength, higher frequency though
#262 to #242 - zekaizer (07/13/2013) [-]
What this guy said. There's a reason why I was useless in physics class...
#110 to #83 - brisineo ONLINE (07/13/2013) [-]
What happens really is that the particles, given a large enough dose, destroy DNA, cell walls, and other important molecular structures.

With low doses of radiation, of course, cancer is a huge risk because cancer is pretty much a cell malfunctioning. While most of the time cells just die, or so many chromosomes are distorted you'd be better off not making anyone pregnant anytime soon, if broken in the right way, the radiation breaks the genes that keep a cell from becoming cancer and it spreads.

With high to fatal amounts, you experience a large amount of cell death; body functions cease to work as the walls of each cell on the surface of your organs begin to disintegrate, a lot of white and red blood cells die, along with the bone marrow, and the DNA which dictates how cells run is messed up, causing more internal damage. At fatal doses, you'd feel near immediate effects such as vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, etc. as your digestive system gets hit the most. (And at this point, if you don't get a marrow transplant, you're dead)

Then, if you go all out and want to give yourself a 1000+ rad dose and decrease your lifespan to mere hours or minutes, the radiation is so intense, your nervous system begins to degrade and you'd be unable to concentrate, feel dizzy, tremble, stop vomiting and eventually just pass out, have a seizure and die.

But not to worry, it isn't a silent death. You can actually feel radiation. At high doses, (reported by Chernobyl victims exposed to around 3-5 rads per sec. before they died) it's said to feel like a burning pins and needles, with a very, very metallic taste and smell. There might also be speckles of light in your vision if it's any higher.

This morbid, nightmare inducing information was brought to you by Wikipedia.

It simply makes you die.

I visited Chernobyl last month, it's not that ******* scary, obviously didnt let me into the powerplant and Pripyat has become a jungle with a building seen occasionally.
User avatar #124 to #73 - folkflunky (07/13/2013) [-]
Imagine that Pripyat was once an incredibly beatiful city, with lots of children playing around, fathers that worked and had a well amount of money per paycheck, and the mothers didn't worry about their sons and daughters being outside because it wasn't dangerous. Now see Pripyat. It's horribly terryifing to even imagine how the people must've felt. Also, imagine the fair, perfectly working, filled with childs and their fathers and mothers, all happy. And now how it is?


In this point of view, everything becomes horryifing to even think off.

User avatar #4 to #2 - theaflackduck (07/12/2013) [-]
Just read up on it, It's pure Corium enveloped in a layer of Silica. It's gives off 1000 Rads/Hour. A lethal dose is 500 Rad in 5 hours. At this rate (2.8/s), you would die in under two minutes. Although those are based on findings from years after the actual meltdown.
>tl;dr this ****** legit, but not as extreme now.
#6 to #4 - MaelRadec (07/12/2013) [-]
reminds me of this...
#39 to #4 - bazda (07/13/2013) [-]
You wouldn't die in 2 minutes, but you would receive a lethal dose of radiation in that time. Then you would die a horrible death about a week later from radiation poisoning.
#243 to #39 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
If you only stay 2 minutes and than receive no more radiation on your way out. If you stay near that thing for 2 minutes, you will probably be dead within an hour.
