Granny, Why Are You Glowing?

Sheez, those Japanese. A group of middle aged pensioners have set up a charity called “Qualified Veterans for Fukushima Nuclear Plant No. 1”. The aim? To help in the reconstruction and decontamination of the leaking nuclear plant.Reason? They consider it better to sacrifice their own  lives rather than let younger people risk theirs. Yep, the “we’re nearer to death” ideology. The group was formed after they heard that authorities were finding it difficult to find enough people willing to go into the contaminate area to help clean up and rebuild . So far they have 450 volunteers (all in their 60’s) willing to sacrifice their lives and of those 90 are quite happy  to work inside the plant. Hmm, makes you feel bad for not standing up for them on a crowded bus now, doesn’t it?

    How selfless are these people? That’s amazing but don’t they have men in special suits to do that job?

  2. This is an idea they should extend to other life-threatening situation as well – let the young men stay at home and raise families and send the auld codgers out to fight wars instead !!!
