Madam Curie was Wrong

Marie Curie stated "Nothing in Life is To Be Feared, Only to Be Understood"

She was wrong on several levels.  

1) Her pursuit of her Precious killed her via leukemia.
2) Some things in life are to be feared, even after they are understood
3) When a Pro-Nuker is speaking, you should fear the fact than many People will believe them based on confusion and the so called sanctity of science.
4) Grizzly Bears - no matter how well understood, should be feared


5) Cherubs, always fear Cherubs


  1. Duck and cover ! Here comes my Christmas song...



    Lethal rays, lethal rays, lethal all the way
    Killing life from Arctica to California Bay
    Lethal rays, lethal rays, lethal all the way
    Coming in at Christmas for
    some million years to stay

    [all together now !]
    Lethal rays, lethal ra...

    Pathetic, I know.

  2. ...
    Raising cancer rates in
    an unprecedented way

    Poisoning your neighborhood
    until the final day

    End of life on planet Earth
    is only months away

    Please enjoy the side-effects
    of Cesium decay

  3. Now I'm spent... where's the pool ?

  4. I had thought radiation killed Mousiour Curie too, until i saw the 1943 movie "Madame Curie".

    He was killed in a traffic accident with a horse carriage, when a wheel went over his head and fractured his skull, apparently. Very sad.

    Quote: "Pierre Curie died in a street accident in Paris on 19 April 1906. Crossing the busy Rue Dauphine in the rain at the Quai de Conti, he slipped and fell under a heavy horse-drawn cart. He died instantly when one of the wheels ran over his head, fracturing his skull."

    Did that happen in persuit of "the precious"? The movie indicated that he was returning from purchasing earrings for his lovely wife. Perhaps i am in err though.

    As human and hopefully humane-kind we all make mistakes.
    Of course, that is a big problem with "nukular" power, especially when unwilling to admit fallibility, no?
