an exerpt from "The Mindscape of Alan Moore"

"Quitting my day job and starting my life as a writer certainly was a tremendous risk.
It was a fool's leap, a shot in the dark.
But anything of value in our lives- whether it be a career, a work of art, a relationship- will always start with such a leap. And in order to be able to make it, you have to put aside the fear of failing and the desire of succeeding. You have to do these things completely purely without fear, without desire.
Because things that we do without lust or result, are the purest actions that we shall ever undertake."

an exploration into chernobyl

Of course i know about it...that it happened. But i've never taken the time to learn any specifics about the most expensive disaster in our history. So i looked it up on Wikipedia and found out there are some levels to the story...for example:

"The operators were given respirators and potassium iodide tablets and told to continue working."

Here's the link for all the deets if you're interested.

Better yet, i just found this cool doc, The True Battle of Chernobyl Uncensored:
