That was the real dragonfire shooting up.
    The IMGUR link shows that the miners they had dig the tunnel underneath mostly died from exposure.

    Yea. The part about not even being able to get morphine because your veins melt was a doozy.

    Liquid morphine in a dropper? Any help would be appreciated at that point I would think.

    And the balls of a miner are much bigger than their nuts. And bigger than anyone in this joint I would guess. Damn.

    Little known fun fact, only a couple miles from the city center of Gaithersburg MD there is a fully functional reactor used by NIST to irradiate experiments. I forget the rating but its there, ironically its about .5 miles from an Issack Walton league headquarters.

    There's a little 100 kW reactor on the University of Utah campus. It's housed in the engineering building. When I was in grad school my project had to do with neutron capture therapy (one of the many radiation therapies used in cancer treatment) and some of our compounds were tested there. Didn't get to see the reactor though...

    Kodak used to have a reactor in Rochester that not many people knew about until they decided to decommission it.

    Agreed, it was very good. I'm glad they didn't spend too much time showing the cat/dog carnage and stuck with shots that suggested a lot more than they showed. I'm even more glad that they didn't make the grizzled Afghanistan veteran into a sadist and repeatedly hinted that he profoundly hates his "job" even though he's pretty callous about the whole thing. The look on the new kid's face in the last shot says it all. And the babushka with her milk? Damn... The podcast expands a bit on what she represents, it's pretty sobering.

    The cat/dog/puppy killing was hard to watch.

    I think they did an excellent job portraying what had to have been a really really shitty job. The part with the litter of puppies was heartbreaking but I think they really showed the gravity of it and how hard it was to do and how much it took out of the soldiers doing it
