Yeah, Chernobyl is pretty effing terrifying. I can't believe it's been 27 years. I still remember the news coverage.
Slightly different scary topic
The building of Atomic Bombs, also known as the Manhattan Project, took place not too far from my area in 1942. Oak Ridge TN. People found eviction notices on their door asking them to be out of their town in 2-6 weeks, many were forced out without compensation, the area was acquired, and the factory was built. My Grandmother worked there, like many other women. Waste was dumped into creeks, and it was rumored that barrels of waste were hauled into my state & county, and other counties in the area, and buried. People would see the loaded trucks come in, and they would leave empty. I do not doubt it, and I have plenty of strange reasons not to.
