(NaturalNews) Does all the physics terminology from Fukushima news reports have your head spinning? Have no fear, NaturalNews readers: I've assembled this handy dandy dictionary of all the terms you need to know to follow Fukushima developments as if you were a double-PhD physics geek. Enjoy!

Editor's Note: Fukushima is no laughing matter, of course, but the lack of understanding of the laws of physics throughout the mainstream media is sadly hilarious. Laughter and humor are healthy for relieving stress, and right now, a lot of people need some stress relief over this situation. In no way does this take away from the seriousness of the Fukushima situation, and we will resume our serious reporting on Fukushima in the days ahead. See the bottom of this article for additional notes about Fukushima and this satire piece.

Dictionary of Radiation (and physics) Terms:

Half Life - How much of your lifespan has now been taken away by listening to the misinformation being spewed out by the mainstream media's reporting on Fukushima.

Table of elements - The place where all the seafood from Japan is now resting while we try to figure out if eating it will cause our hair to fall out.

Reactor Number Two - What happens in the toilet stall after you eat McDonald's Happy Meal Combo #1.

Under control - Hopelessly out of control and probably likely to explode at any minute. As in, "Reactor No. 2 is completely under control now."

Neutron - The new sci-fi movie starring Jeff Bridges, as opposed to the "Old Tron."

Cesium - Part of the answer given by nuclear safety workers when asked, "Where is the Fukushima safety manager?" The reply? "I thinks I cesium somewhere around here..."

Safe - The new government euphemism for "more than enough to give you cancer." As in, "The radioactive fallout from Fukushima is now SAFE."

Millisieverts - Something related to Becquerels, or curies, or something physics sounding, but nobody really knows, and it has something to do with the inverse square or something else we probably should have learned in high school physics but we weren't paying attention because we were all too busy trying to figure out how to cheat on the final exam.

Geiger counter - Obama's new nationwide employment plan that involves millions of census workers ("Geigers") aimlessly wandering the streets of America trying to count how many people there are if they would only hold still for long enough.

Nukular - How George W. Bush pronounces "nuclear." To master the "nukular" pronunciation, simply start with the word "nuclear" and then subtract one hundred IQ points.

Fission - The result of the collision between one loose cannon idea and a spherical critical mass of bureaucratic corruption in the power industry. The resulting explosion gives off two additional loose cannon ideas that go on to cause a chain reaction throughout the entire government leading to a total meltdown of integrity.

Inadvertent recriticality - A clever way of covertly rephrasing, "The damn thing is melting down for some reason and we have no friggin' clue why."

Inert gas - What's actually coming out of the mouths of the nuclear industry spin doctors who continue to insist nuclear energy is the future of "green energy" on planet Earth. Apparently, nuclear energy will only save the planet by killing off human civilization first. Pure genius!

Preparedness plan - What the U.S. government now officially describes as "doing nothing other than staying informed" which, of course, means sitting on the couch watching TV while consuming McDonald's Happy Meal Combo #1.

Editor's Note: Please do not misinterpret the intention of this satire piece. We take the Fukushima disaster extremely seriously and have published numerous stories urging people to stay informed and get prepared. We have also donated $12,000 to Fukushima rescue efforts (https://www.naturalnews.com/031744_rescue_eff...) and helped thousands of NaturalNews readers get prepared through our NaturalNews Store.

This story is intended to bring some levity to the heavy, heavy use of physics terms that now seem to dominate the news, even though virtually no one outside the scientific community seems to understand what these terms even mean. In fact, the media itself seems to be wildly ignorant of physics (https://www.naturalnews.com/031935_mainstream...). And the government seems to be just inventing new laws of physics as it goes along... "Oh yeah, you can eat radioactive fish, no problem..."

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
