  2. I was born on April 26 and so I've always had a fascination with Chernobyl. It's insane where these guys went because I know from my readings that they were stepping on the most dangerous places on earth. That bridge was a direct line of sight into the core of the reactor and people who stood there were essentially doomed. That amusement park has radioactive parts buried beneath it and on the wrong day you can get up to 3-5 Rots being a 100ft from it. Whats scary is that the reactor inside the sarchophagus only let out 10-15% of its radioactivity. If the sarchophogus collapses (because it was only supposed to be temporary) then the Ukraine (and us) could be seriously fucked. You know, there are places in Scotland where they can't eat the sheep because the Cesium-13 that the plant let out got in the grass and made the sheep toxic. Fucked up.
