    Unfortunately a sub is required to read the article (although I see you can get a 30 day "free" trial).

    Sorry, I was quite sure that the Times of London had a paywall but allowed unlimited free access via link. Apparently I was mistaken.

    Just watched the fifth episode.

    Will Season Two feature all the new superheroes as a result of the radiation over-exposure? :cool:

    I agree ... it's the same as if they were showing a young innocent person who becomes a "soldier", handed a rifle a told to shoot and kill people. He would have to psychologically process the whole concept, the fact that HE is now "one of them" who is able to eventually point at his target and pull the trigger and move on to do it again and again. In this case, the target was domestic pets.

    I’m probably a jerk for thinking this, but claiming a “close family connection” to the tragedy based on not much proof seems like a stretch. So basically anyone who got wet in the rain in that area of Scotland could have been affected I guess.

    I know it’s not the point of the article, but I’d be interested to learn more details about the cancer that those guys died from. While it certainly is sad that it happened, it seems a bit disingenuous to attempt to tug on people’s heartstrings based on just a “belief” of the cause.

    We're all going to hell:



    You may have to open that link in youtube. It doesn't work remotely linked.
