The Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award
The FFFF Award was a staple of “Laugh In”, an American comedy program in the 1960s and early 1970s.
The “Fickle Finger of Fate” Award was not given to anyone physically present on the show, but to someone who had earned the wrath and derision of the producers of Laugh-In..Sometimes the Pentagon or some other government organization..Often an individual that had made an outrageous claim.
It just seems fitting to present this most prestigious award to the Environment Ministry which opened a new office (with a staff of 70!) in the city of Fukushima to “spearhead the work of cleaning up buildings, soil and waste contaminated with radioactive materials.” Right. How did that turn out in Chernobyl?
Thus, the FFFF award today.

Part 3 of the report on how parents groups are forming to share information on food safety. One group, the National Network of Parents to Protect Children from Radiation has between 5,000 and 6,000 members.

Mothers first to shed food-safety complacency
Walmart bringing ‘real’ Japanese food to the United States
12 September, 2011
Some have expressed concern that Japanese food exports have been tainted by radiation as well. In fact, Taiwan’s Atomic Energy Council discovered radiation in fava beans imported from Japan, though this radiation was said to be harmless to humans. In 2009, Japan exported $3.3 billion worth of food products (less than 0.5% of their total exports) while the value of their food imports was near $53 billion. This is not a widespread concern, especially in the US, where Japanese food exports account for about .12% of our total agricultural imports, the majority of that number consisting of seafood.

Reactor Operator: FOIA response shows US knew in March that Spent Fuel Pool No. 3 leaking — “Flooding of pool may not be possible due to damage”
“I was a senior reactor operator at a CE plant and was trained on a Westinghouse plant. I also got my chops as a maintenance engineer and outage planner. In 2007, I was on the B.b.5 project for coming up with mitigation strategies for events like the Fukushima event. My BWR experience is as a contractor for various license renewal preparations and a stint in work control at Clinton.” (SOURCE)
Interview with Chris Harris, Nutrimedical Report, Dec. 22, 2011:
- They knew way back on March 29 that SFP 1 had been boiling
- SFP 2 had boiling in it for a long time
- You’re getting fuel damage
- SFP 3 pool leakage existed
- There were no real reports on that back then
- It seems like they were trying to cover that up
