Olympics 2020.

It's probably fine, Should be safe.

Greenpeace readings say UP TO 71 microsiev /hr (around j-village), that's a yearly dose of radz between 1-2 days of staying.

Sooooo.. If we go and stay for a week, that's  about 3-6 years worth of radz..

Not the end of the world.   (this is prolly worst case, unlikely).


Now, food wise, it's difficult to say, because if one's really unlucky and the air blows a radz particle into your food (mouth/nose), the exposure will cause localized cancer to form internally, as there is no longer protection from skin and cloths if the particle emits from inside'ya. the particles's half life well exceeds lifetime, so you get ur own little nooqlr generator for life.

Soo..... now, if you bring nabisco saltine crackers, they are ~437 calories per 100g. 1 Box of it is ~2000 Calories,  So every person going only needs to take 7 boxes of crackers, they're ~1 lb per box,  So it's Well within possible for luggage capacity.

And You don't need 7 day s worth of crackers, if you're willing to take minimal risk on some of the local foods.

If it's Windy, a facemask is a good idea for the Radz, but also ontop of the pandemic that's goin' round in asia atm..

Radz masks are specialized, make sure you get the right ones.

For some reasons they had decided to host the Olympics during summer months when Tokyo is really hot and humid ...
I have wondered if that is so that those pesky gaijin who'd visit wouldn't have the energy to do anything stupid while they are there.

It also overlaps with August 6 and ends on the 9th: the 75th anniversaries of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, respectively.

Florida is literally just short of a jungle in terms of humidity. Not that bad? It's basically hell, you like breathing soup?

Wow, HBO is really anti-nooq.

they seem super <progressive>,  and this is just the trailer, the full show is ridiculously damning..  Yikes..

It's relatively safe guys, just don't jump up and down or kick up any dust, or eat too much.

Full episode is available on Amazon Prime.
