    Do you think they could be contaminated with radiation?
    i dont know where or when they were shipped out, but its a paranoid thought.

    They aren't. I checked mine when I got it and it had no traces.

    They're made in China. So I doubt it very much.

    Even then they probably check themselves before sending them.

    Plus there haven't been any reports.

    Look, they were shipped way before the radiation got anywhere near China- no radiation, it is safe

    I think some of you are looking for the EoF.
    This isn't it.

    I take it this is one of the guys in America who panic-bought Iodide Tablets (anti-radiation sickness meds) despite the fact that Japan is across THE LARGEST OCEAN IN THE WORLD from them.

    Utsuho told me that the reactors are fine, she's taking care of them. But, just eat a Yatagarasu and you'll be the leading specialist in nuclear fusion.

    Except some news agencies in the States were talking about getting (and some suggested TAKING) them as a precaution... that is until they were smacked down by people in the actual medical field saying NOT to buy them.

    Also, radiation has been found in the rain of Boston and snow in New Hampshire. No where even REMOTELY close to even be THINKING of worrying about, but still. Just shows how far and fast it can travel.

    They found radiation from Japan in Glasgow Scotland today, Not enough to do any harm to anyone though.
