UPDATE: This person is clearly Australian, but he claims to be a traveler and could certainly be living in Tokyo, obviously. However, some are saying he’s a scammer. To what end, one can only guess – perhaps he’s an anti-nukes activist or just trying to get a viral video?

If it’s real, this very recent video out of Tokyo is absolutely heartbreaking. This man claims to have gotten rained on, and his skin is supposedly now breaking out. Weeping, he says, “Thank you, General Electric, for the primitive f**king technology you’ve produced…”

He’s right about a couple of things: The Japanese are very nice people, and they are suffering a horrible blow. He’s also right that we could do without nuclear technology. I say that as someone who was 25 miles downwind of Three Mile Island.
