skeptical of a paying this much for a Russian watch. I mean, first I'd want to pass a geiger counter over it. Then I'd like to know what on earth the watch band is made of. Leather? Dissidents?
Looked at the price and thought the same, but you’re paying for the titanium case.
As to radioactivity, be more concerned with the ongoing leak at Fukushima, which is pouring millions of bequerels of radioactivity as we speak. They at least finally placed the concret sarcophagus over Chernobyl.
All good points. Nostalgia aside, there are people and things currently going on in Russia that I wouldn't want to support, even indirectly.
Not wild about the president they helped elect either, now that you mention it.
"Russia, if you're listening--go fuck yourself"
From an ionizing radiation perspective, you might want to be more concerned about literally everything around you (Concrete, asphalt, drywall, etc.) than Fukushima. Unless you are literally at Fukushima, you get higher doses of radiation from eating bananas or generally existing than from Fukushima.
This isn't to say that leaking radioactive material isn't bad, it's just not as bad as "millions of becquerels" sounds at first glance.
Da, good point!
Perhaps then I can interest you in little Chernobyl timeshare opportunity?
Competitive pricing, very quiet neighborhood!
It’s always good to go back to the science. In Fukushima, you still have ongoing fission, right at this very moment. The debate about ongoing criticality in the plants meted cores, where the corium actually is(we don’t know), and how we can’t even send robots in to view for longer than a few minutes is an important. The plant is being doused with seawater continuously, and what isn’t being kept and stored in tanks is going right into the sea. Our planet’s amazing food chain does the rest; concentrating things up the food chain - most notably Cesium 137 and iodine 131 which are beta and gamma radiation emitters.
im not worried about this watch though. Although reading about the history of stolen watches in Hiroshima is interesting; looters stole personal belongings including watches in the chaos after the bomb dropped, only to later succumb to radiation poisoning.
You serious bro? You've been watching to much cnn :)
Am I detecting Fox accent, there, Comrade? That probably means this conversation is out of your “sphere of reality” so to speak, pity!
Fox sucks too but whatever you say there genius.
😂 those Chernobyl timeshares are flying off the shelf right now!
So, getting your truthy news these days from whom?
I get fifty rubles for everyone sold!
and the things the usa do everywhere in rhe world are OK?
I'm sure that Russia has been long overtaken in the production of dissident leathers…
Though Russia has people of all skin colours and types, we think of Nobel-Class Russian Dissidents as white. I am here to say that there are dissident skin colours that go better with the slate of case/face colour choices here. No, if you want good-looking, good-quality dissident watch straps, you must think 'more globally'!
(Wow! When I stick my tongue waaay into my cheek, the view is WAAAY different on your side of the street, Ray…)
My side of the street? I suspect you've wondered down another blind-alley!
My bad, of course, O Great One!
PS. Your fan club sucks!
You haven't sent in your monthly dues so you missed out on the August dividend. Everyone else got a free case of Macallan Lalique 55 Year Old Single Malt Scotch, and a family pass to Knott's Berry Farm--they're not complaining!
Awww, man! I love berries & scotch… Cheque is in the mail, Sir
