Mutant Food And Animals Found in ********* AreaFollow

It might be wise to steer clear of vegetables from Japan's ********* area for, oh, say a few hundred years. A Korean website assembled this image collection of produce from towns and villages surrounding the ********* Daiichi nuclear power plant. And they are NOT pretty pictures. From Siamese-twinned corn cobs to what can only be called peaches with elephantiasis, the region's agriculture appears to have taken a heavy radiation hit from the nuclear disaster in 2011. It's not clear yet what effect eating the produce might have on the population, but you never know. It could be pretty dangerous, but you never know — in an ideal world, maybe it could give you superpowers.


Here's a [link=
http://imgur.com/a/Ne2bP#0]link to an Imgur gallery with more victims. Personally I think the Tomato-Hydra is a step in the right direction, at least until it grows a mouth and teeth. Smiley: um

Edit: Now with 100% more Imgur links.

Anyone remember the Gilligan's Island episode where the radiated vegetable seeds wash up on the Island and the castaways gain super-powers?

I luved that one. Smiley: smile

Lol, no!

What's up with that?

It was called Pass the Vegetables Please...

"Pass the Vegetables Please" 1625-0503 September 26, 1966
A crate of radioactive experimental vegetable seeds washes ashore. The castaways plant them, and they grow remarkably fast. Then they begin to sit down to a garden banquet, each castaway feasting on his or her favorite veggie, before they discover the "radioactive experimental" part of the crate they came in. Most notably, Mary Ann gets incredible eyesight (from eating carrots); Gilligan gets super strength (from eating spinach) and Mrs. Howell gets unlimited energy (from eating sugar beets).

I wonder how much of that is radiation and how much is normal botanical goofiness. The photos of the flowers show one messed up bloom among several normal looking ones on the same plant. "Siamese corn" isn't all that bizarre. Consider how much corn is grown in the US and random chance. Some of the stuff was rather tame (a cucumber with a leaf!)

That's not to deny that ********* would have had any effect on the surrounding area; of course it did. I wouldn't take the photos as anything more than an amusing curiosity though.

Cucumbers are the fruit. That leave means that one of the seeds inside of the cucumber started growing due to being activated by the radiation. Same for those tomatoes. Literally the radiation accelerated/activated the chemical process of germination.

So yea, it might not LOOK ****** up, but it's ****** up.

Navel oranges are mutant freaks as well. Maybe we'll get seedless tomatoes!

Literally you don't know that from a photo. In the cucumber picture you can't tell if the leaf is breaking through the cucumber skin or growing off the outside of the cucumber. Not that either situation is normal but you can't just take every botanical oddity and say "Radiation!!"

Tomato from Kyoto, 2006
Mutant beefsteak tomato, United States
Mutant Heirloom Tomato -- Tomatoes are easy since a host of viruses and parasites cause them to do weird things.
Siamese Squash (1), (2), (3)
Rogues gallery of mutant fruit

So on and so forth. Which isn't to discount the possibility of radiation being the catalyst of some of the OP photos but I wouldn't jump at saying it's the cause of every goofy looking fruit and veggie.

We can totally submit these all to the Ankh-Morpork Times "Humorous Vegetable" section.

Although I think they prefer ones that are shaped like penises.

These were my thoughts as well. Most of those pictures looked like **** plants do normally everywhere.

What the photo doesn't convey well is when they turned off the lights it glowed.

Much of our mass-produced produce is intentionally irradiated. It's also genetically engineered, sprayed with pesticides and chemically ripened.
