Acute radiation poisoning happens when one is exposed to high amounts of ionizing radiation. 
But there is a period of time where the person seems very healthy. This can last for hours or even days. Shortly after, they die immediately. Hence the term “walking ghost”
Why does this happen? 
This is because what radiation poisoning does is it destroys the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces a lot of blood cells, so new blood cells can’t be made anymore.
However, the the blood cells that are already present in the body continues to circulate around and temporally work until they are “used up”
A similar effect happens in the intestinal tract.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

I love mongoliantiger ‘s AC actor AU to bits! And I was inspired by their recent post about it to combine two of their ideas together.

  1. Ziio typing something down on a laptop whilst still wearing her costume.
  2. When Haytham jumps off and was supposed to land on Connor in the abandoned church he misses.
