Who thinks we could talk a Texas governor into demonstrating the safety of the electric chair in the same way?

Did he swallow it? Hari Kari the slow way. Definately a hard act to follow. Must have been a Jim Jones follower-"Hey guys, the kool aid tastes great!".

This from a culture that once routinely practiced ritual suicide. Nothing will convince me that it's safe to drink outta that punchbowl.

Uh, yeah . . . how long does it take for the effects of radiation poisoning to show? Unless the answer is "immediately" I ain't trustin that water. We'll see if this guy's alive by this time next year, THEN I'll consider it.

It's like them saying on the news tonight that Disneyland had been serving toliet water that has been treated. I'm not exactly thrilled to hear that. I'll stick to the buying the filtered unit water systems. Thanks Agnes

We all should be concerned about health fallout from this disaster. How safe is any seafood anymore, between Fukushima and Gulf oil disaster. We need to get moving on solar and other alternative fuels

Yasuhiro Sonoda San drinking radioactive water proves nothing, except perhaps that he is a fool. During the war I witnessed an officer eating a tablespoon full of DDT powder to show that it was safe.
