Someone needs to forward this lady and this article to National Geographic or perhaps Time or newsweek.



This will be something to think about for the next year or ten.

bluesman, most people in this country couldn't even identify states in our own country, much less know Belorussia from Ukraine. Kind of like an engineer I know that can't change his own spark plugs.

Yea this been bumping around the internet for a while from what i understand.



I have seen about 3 different versions of this. Some of them have slightly different pics and what not. The current one is the most extensive i have seen though.

Hey, that's not fair! I'll bet a lot of people in the Ukraine believe we're still fighting the Indians out west. I know this to be true because there are people living as close as New York who still think so.

I sometimes wish I could still afford to live there.

Sobering, shocking, unbelivable!

And some politicos in this country want to revive the nuclear power industry!

Even with the technology we are using in the west, it is very possible to have the same thing happen anytime, we were just lucky at three mile island. This lady deserves an incredible amount of credit for revealing such a graphic and brave story. Give her free lifetime membership.

Been there. Done that. I took a vacation out there riding. Un-friggin' impressed.



You can have Highway 1. I've got the Dragon. You can have the Pacific, I've got the Appalations. You can have your socialist, gun grabbing, high tax, low horsepower crap.



I've got no state income tax, cheap gas, and where I live, you don't have to be a millionaire to get a concealed carry license. We think poor people should be able to protect themselves too.
