Radiation in England
“In physics, radiation is a process in which energetic particles or energetic waves travel through vacuum, or through matter-containing media that are not required for their propagation.” Yeah, Wikipedia.
The way I see it, radiation is more ‘down to Earth‘.
I am on a mission encouraged by the newest Wachowski movie Cloud Atlas, where possibly harmful environments (or radiation levels) are not stopping my spirit (eh, body) from travelling across time (well okay, across Earth) to do great things.
Inspired by revolutionist actions of a female clone-worker (Doona Bae) and the ambitious Meronym (Halle Berry) with futuristic Star Trek look, I am, too, taking on a post-apocalyptic journey to make the world a better place.
I am carrying the Geiger Counter for the good of human kind. To enlighten and raise awareness. That’s me.
AND my body is marked by many birthmarks, which definitely amount to signs of reincarnation and mysterious connections. I am sure I can make out the Big Dipper on my arm. Even if I am not sharing more attractive shooting-star birthmarks with the protagonists – I am predestined to read radiation levels and live the idea of Cloud Atlas that what we do in this life causes a ripple effect in the future.
Trust me on this.
To prove my point I have taken the Geiger Counter, whom I have named Mr Gamma Scout, to all places in… Cambridge – it doesn’t get more down to Earth than at a historical university town. I also added a few spot checks from London on my way to Cambridge.
Here are Mr Gamma Scout’s measurements.
26th November 2012. LONDON, Gatwick Airport. Very low radiation.
26th November 2012. LONDON, Victoria Station. Radiation way below average.
Apart from radiation I found this street sign at Victoria. They should have these for foreigners reading ‘look left’!
27th November 2012. CAMBRIDGE, main bus station. Radiation is doing so good – why can’t public transport?
27th November 2012. CAMBRIDGE, inside the Grand Arcade. Great and healthy values. Living at a shopping centre becomes even more appealing.
27th November 2012. CAMBRIDGE, in front of the main entrance to the Grand Arcade. Not a significant difference to inside.
28th November 2012. CAMBRIDGE, Milton Road bus stop. Great radiation but sadly also the place of no return once you board the bus to town.
28th November 2012. CAMBRIDGE, Fitzroy Street. Radiation looking splendid.
28th November 2012. CAMBRIDGE, the Grafton Shopping Centre. Radiation generally low, prices occasionally high.
28th November 2012. CAMBRIDGE, Cambridge Arts Theatre, row A seat 1. Very lovely levels to enjoy a British classic.
See, radiation comes from space (and partly from Earth itself) and readings show that radiation is our friend. But mainly, that small actions will have great effects.
I am doing great things.
” Bye now, luv.”
