    Default 1950' propaganda said we had nothing to fear from radiation.Duh!


    Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQGdGeP3DT8

    "This film tries to dispell fear of nuclear radiation by such tactics as portraying the human body as a factory run by pixies, telling you you can always get a toupee if your hair falls out, and informing you that you'll be dead before getting a high enough dose of radiation to make you sterile. The naration is alternately patronizing and clueless, making this a highly amusing example of 50s cold war propaganda. ... (more) (less) "

    It starts with the narrator stating that "......complete recovery is more probable" from radiation poisoning.
    "But for me the fact that I had danger on my shoulder made it much more exciting. Itís rather like if you flirt with a girl, itís more exciting than paying for a prostitute, because while you know youíre gonna get it, the other one you donít.Ē"
