Week 4 on Jericho - Oct 11, 2006 - Walls of Jericho post #1  quote:



When Jake and Heather locate a stranger on the side of the road who is sick and disfigured from the radiation poisoning, they must decide whether to help him and risk contamination or do nothing and allow him to die.

Well, who knows what will happen? Once you have radiation poisoning, can you get better? I really don't know anything about it.

According to how much you get. If memory serves, the scientists at Chernobyl looked over into the reactor and were dead within hours. And Jack's boss on 24 breathed in some radioactive gas, and it got in his lungs, and he had less than a day to live.

If the guy showed up like in the previews, all burned from it, he would have less than a day. I think you can get over it, if the dose is small enough. You might get cancer down the road.



Actually, though I said I would shoot him, I wouldn't. I'd try to help him out, but in a way I didn't have to get to close to him. I would make him camp outside the city, set him up something to live in, and bring him food and medicine.

Yeah, I would be like you. Set up something, outside of the town, and provide for him... but, I wouldn't go near him without one of those suits on! It could be like "The Stand"

Chances are he will die, and if he was was that bad, I'd take him back and get him some meds to go to sleep.

Shouldn't they be trying to get gieger counters for them to check out anyone and everything?

Also, and I may be wrong, but I heard somewhere, a gieger counter only works till it reads a certain amount of radiation, it peaks the counter, then it stays there. I don't think it goes back down, it doesn't clean itself of the radiation, it becomes useless to use after exposed to a high level.


Must have read that in a book. But I never researched to see if it was true.

I'll try to ask Ron when he gets home. He worked at a Nuclear plant for a while, so he knows a bunch of stuff the rest of us don't about radiation.

I used Geiger counters when I worked at the nuke plant. They count disintegrations per minute- the higher the count the more radiation.

I dont think they can get 'used up' once the radiation goes away it will just read a lower level. They can , however get contaminated (a radioactive particle gets on the counter) the ones I used were stainless so if this happens you just wipe it with a rag and throw the rag in the contaminated pile.

Inside containment you are suited up from head to toe. You assume everything you touch is contaminated as is your protective clothing from the moment you enter.

You take classes on how to remove your clothing without getting yourself or the dressdown area contaminated. You go immiadately from the step off pad to a Geiger counter. Now you go through the beta booths to exit the radioligically conrtolled area (rca) to get in the locker room to get your street clothes back on. You re-enter the rca and head back to the control point where you must pass through another beta booth. You are now out of the potentially contaminated area (the rca) , but you must pass through another beta booth to exit the plant


This isnt all of it- I didnt want to bore eveerybody with all the details

Oh man! My Carhardt pants would collect radon gas and set off the beta booths so I couldnt get out of the rca. Radon occurs naturally when granite decomposes and if the wind is blowing the wrong way the radon levels are already high. I had to stand in front of a fan for two hours one time just so i could eat lunch

If the guy showed up like in the previews, all burned from it, he would have less than a day.

Not nescescarilly, if he was just radiated fron the outside with the type of radiation that stops when it hits something (beta i think), he would just have superficial burns. If his internals were radiated (gamma I think) his goose is cooked (pardon the pun). The danger to the rescuers is the potential of contamination. If he has microscopic radioactive particles on him, just tuching him might get some on you, without a Geiger counter there is no way of knowing

Actually, though I said I would shoot him, I wouldn't. I'd try to help him out, but in a way I didn't have to get to close to him. I would make him camp outside the city, set him up something to live in, and bring him food and medicine.

You can get better, depending on the dose. There is however, a point where you are better off letting Dave just shoot you, unless you want to break the record for number of cancers dying from, currently held by the helicopter pilot from Chernobyl

And, I think that I will pass for the most cancers to die by. I just wanna go in my sleep, peacefully (like most people want).

Man, last nights episode was great (as usual). There is a lot going on...

I thought that the radiation dude was going to be found outside of town. Nope... right there, in the midst of their safe haven. And that he's associated with Robert Hawkins. See, I don't like the guy... and he's got a laptop that he's communicating with something. He knows something big... and I wanna know what it is.

I wish Dale would tell miss high and mighty up on the hill to "F" off. She's a b!tch. The way that she treated him, in front of her friends.

I love how Dale stocked up the store. But, WHY are people spending their money on stuff? It's just funny. Because I don't think that there is a reason for it. But, what do I know.

I want to slap Eric for all the time he's spending in the bar, drinking, and hanging with his fluzie, while his wife is bustin' her butt to save people at the hospital.

Jake is awesome, as usual. Oh, did anyone else see those dog tags around his neck, when he was getting out of the shower, and talking with Heather? Was our boy in the military, for 4 years?

Robert Hawkins is bad news. I think that he is behind the bomb somehow.

I loved when Eric showed up, at the hospital, and he was all... "I got 75 gallons of gas" His wife said... "Thanks, but we've got it covered!" SLAM! That was great.

I don't think that Hawkins was behind the bombs. I think that he is a gov't official, who either knew that it was going to happen, and they had a group of families that were to seek shelter. And, I think that he knew that Jericho would be a town that was safe.

I was watching it with Sandy and my mom, and I missed a lot of stuff. You know how women folk talk.


Anyhow, I got the idea sick dude was supposed to meet up in Jericho with black Cia dude and coordinate something, but he screwed up and tried to bring a bunch of people with him.

That sound about right?


But what I don't get is the traiter part. He said there was a traitor, but I missed who got betrayed, and why they think there is one....

Yeah, I think that he was supposed to meet up with Hawkins, but went back for other people. Why? Was his daughter the reason? Did she leave to get others, and so, he went back? Or was there more to it?

He (Victor... aka radiation dude) said that there was a traitor. When Hawkins pushed him for the answer, Victor said "You... know" So, either he was saying that Hawkins is the traitor, and he's now trying to cover his tracks, or someone else is a traitor, and they are out there, somewhere.

OOOO! Something I noticed. The EKG leads! It said "lead off". and the monitor was empty. Notice that he was dead when they came back in? The guy took his leads off so that the alarm would not sound. He had to have killed him. I'm telling you, they wouldn't show a shot like that unless something foul had happened.
