    Are you buying Iodine?

    There are numerous reports out on the sudden demand and lack of stock on iodine tablets. Most of this is fed from the video's showing the impact the Chernobyl radioactive fallout cloud had on Eupore.

    Are you buying Idodine? I'm in San Diego and don't have plans to try and look for any.

    A prepared person would already have iodine tablets in stock.

    I do, but not for the situation in Japan.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    "Prepared person" and "prepper" are not synonyms.

    Even though my state is somewhat close to Japan I don't have plans to buy any. If it is confirmed that the reactor has melted down and we start getting reports of radiation coming this way, then we'll see.

    Why would you, anyone, want to buy this stuff? Because of the nuclear non-event in Japan? That's funny.

    Worst case scenario... Since Chernobyl was finally contained in a certain area, the same can be done in Japan.

    That's not what he said. He implied that since this is not nearly as bad a Chernobyl that it should be containable.
