less arguing about shipping more Chernobyl cat fish

the one closest is named Borya

These guys aren’t even mutated their just naturally that big.

And were probably already considered old when Chernobyl happened

Didn’t they already show that the Chernobyl catfish are actually smaller than normal for their age? They do ingest huge amounts of radioactive isotopes from the silt on the bottom of the cooling pond, and are definitely mutated to some degree, but in the boring real-life sense; stunted growth and poor health.

theyre still fuckin huge fish



KrAZ-256B1, modified for work near the Chernobyl reactor after the disaster in 1984. The driver cab has 3 tons of lead installed in it.

Eighteen KrAZ-256B1s were modified in this fashion to haul radioactive debris during the cleanup. After the cleanup was concluded, they were buried in 

Burakovka village.



“Your testimony today will not be accepted by the state. It will not be disseminated in the press. It never happened. No. You will live however long you have. But not as a scientist. Not anymore. You keep your title, your office. No duties. No authority. No friends. No one will talk to you. No one will listen to you. Other men, lesser men, will receive credit for the things you have done. Your legacy is now their legacy. You will live long enough to see that.”


Friendly reminder that this almost exactly happened. Legasov was cut out of the Chernobyl story while he was still alive. Things he said and did was credited to either other people, or nameless scientists. For proof, read Chernobyl Notebook, written in 1987 when Legasov was still alive. Then read Chernobyl: The History of a Nuclear Catastrophe, written in 2018. It took years to uncover Legasov’s story.
