Google Translation of The three-eyed fish from The Simpsons was an Argentine, Infobae (Argentina), October 29, 2011:

A group of fishermen caught a three-eyed wolf fish in a lake near a nuclear power plant in Cordova.

The discovery occurred in the reservoir lake called “Hot Water Jet”, which is located near the nuclear power dam, as published in the site Cordoba String3.

“We were fishing and we got the surprise of getting this rare specimen. As it was dark at that time we did not notice, but then you looked at him with a flashlight and saw that he had a third eye,” Julian told Zmutt, one of the fishermen.

Zmutt said it was the first time that happens and that the discovery began to worry people because “they start talking about nuclear power.”

He added that the copy is in the freezer of one of the fishermen and that after some tests he thinks make embalming.

[…] Mr Zmutt said this was the first time he had caught a three-eyed fish, and said local residents are now complaining that radiation has spread from the plant into the lake. […]

In an early episode of The Simpsons, a three-eyed fish named ‘Blinky’ was caught from waters near the Springfield nuclear power plant where Homer Simpson worked.

Fishermen in Córdoba, Argentina caught a three-eyed wolf fish in a reservoir fed by a local nuclear power plant, which will surely hinder the plant’s owner’s attempt to run for local office.

[…] The fishermen say their discovery […] has begun to worry local residents who live near the reactor.

[…] probable high levels of radiation […]

    That Argentine fish lived by a Canadian reactor. At the Bruce nuclear complex, tritium is released to the station cooling water effluent stream (Condenser Cooling Water) which discharges into Lake Huron.

    CANDU reactors are the largest Canadian point source of tritium

    http://www.friendsofbruce.ca/Special%20Reports/Tritium_in_Drinking_Water_Notes.html

    The UN Committee on the Effects of Radiation (UNSCEAR) noted that Canadian CANDU heavy water reactors generate about 30 times the amount of tritium of a light water U.S. reactor – Canada allows 30 times more tritium in Canadian drinking water (than the USA).

  • brucecandu brucecandu

    Maximum concentration of tritium in drinking water – correcting my Math in the above post: Canada’s drinking water allowable tritium – USED to be 54 times higher than the US – Canada changed it – now it’s only 9,5 times higher. That’s not so bad is it? Canadians can do with a nice warm drink – irradiated water for a cold country.

    Canada (Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality) has recently lowered the limit for tritium in drinking water from 40,000 becquerels per litre (Bq/L) to 7,000 Bq/L. In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)* sets a limit under the Safe Drinking Water Act of 740 Bq/L, almost 10 times as restrictive as Canada’s recently reduced limit.

    * The limit for “beta-emitters,” in the case of tritium, is 20,000 Picocuries (a Picocurie is one-trillionth of a Curie). One Curie equals 37 billion becquerels.

    these three eyed fish are everywhere!! the three pics at the bottom of the page is me out with the girls…..im the good looking one!! ………the fish is not good looking though!!

    Predicted ‘lemming year’ arrives
    May 5, 2011

    “Predictions that 2011 could be a ‘lemming year’ appear to have been correct, as the small, notoriously short-tempered rodents have begun popping up all over the mountainous areas of Norway, scaring skiers, swarming across roads and even attacking photographers.”

    “Norwegian rodents disappointed with being irradiated with isotopes attack any thing bipedal. Also, lemmings have spread to the internet where they are causing confusion and disharmony, spreading illegal information and generally taking the piss out of the nuclear lobby. Most Norwegian scientists agree that lemmus lemmus does not spread disease (especially the Norwegian ones).

    The lemmings refuse to cease their Nordic/internet rampage until all nuclear reactors are being shut down in preparation for de-commisioning … paid for by share holders (strange bipedal shadowy figures). OH AND SCRAP HALDEN!!.”

    And theres more here….lol!

      …”One urban legend that is popular in Norway is that lemmings can explode when they become very, very angry.”
      LOL
      Thanks arclight, for brightening up my Sunday morning.

        the picture on the norwegian link attacking the photographer is one of my daughters…pretty eh!! im so proud of the occupy norway/lemming movement!!

    Anybody not in USA ever watch “The Simpsons”?…
    one variation of the opening sequence for the show features
    a three-eyed, downstream-from-the-nuke-plant fish! Or Frog?
    I have years of Simpsonia to catch up on, once they grab me
    and put me in the bunker.

      I have been around for a while..years even..talking about the fallacy of nuclear energy.I am marked.I am African and from Afica and live in Africa.I know about DU ..been reading about Helen. Lauren..Busby, Arnie even before enenews.So I will NOT shut up now cuz you said so..You DO NOT OWN THIS PLACE..or may be you do. [REMOVED BY MODERATOR]

  • ENENEWS Staff

    Yes, we are talking about nuclear issues… energy issues are also of interest. However, the religious postings and information about sexual orientation are not what the comments section is intended for. Let’s keep the topic on the nuclear/energy issue, more specifically on whatever the title of the post happens to be. If you’d like to talk about something not concerning the topic at hand, please comment in the General Discussion forum for the current week. Thanks everyone.

      You’re right Admin, I should’ve not lost my temper. But as I see above, it just turned out how I expected….

    • arclight arclight

      but irradiated and irritated lemmings are cool and on topic??

    • WindorSolarPlease

      Hi Staff,

      I can see keeping things on the topic. Even I have at times drifted away from it. It’s hard not to chat once in awhile, but I will try harder to stay on the subject.

      You can count on me not to say anything sexual, I’m an old lady.

      It’s to hard not to say to put God as number one on your list of preparing, that one I can’t promise not to say.

    The Chernobyl Wolves special on PBS made it look like the Wolves were surviving. However, a Wolf lives on average about 8 years. So the time it takes for cancers to do their damage is much less on the living subject. (genetic mutations is a different story) Unfit offspring will most likely be killed by the mother or die soon after birth. Humans, now living longer than ever, at least for now, have more time to develop illness’.

    Women used to marry at around age 12. (not so long ago) A women over 20 who was not married or who had not had children was considered an old maid. I know that sounds weird now, but it might be key to the continuation of our species. It worked before.

    Not to get too off topic, but has anyone ever thought that it may be possible that the “sexual preference gene” may have accelerated mutations because of Nuclear Testing Fallout. (?)

    I have seen my uncle do his work as a mortician. Like a doctor you see everything. When I was younger and considering becoming a doctor I would watch him work. I have seen people with 3 nipples, 2 vaginas etc… When I asked my uncle about this his reply was that such things were very common. I did not know about fallout then.

    I wonder what the incidence of being born a hermaphrodite used to be and what it has become since 1945? As Seinfeld would say, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that…”.

    I didn’t realize Argentina had nuclear power plants; so now people planning to escape nuclear contamination by moving south is moot. Nuclear power plants are accidents ready to happen. I just can’t figure out how anyone could possibly think nuclear power is worth the risks?? It makes me so angry. Where are all these countries putting their toxic wastes?

  • WindorSolarPlease

    I thought Argentina was a safer place that didn’t have Nuclear Plants.

    Are there any places in the world that is safer from this radiation that we all seem to be breathing in and eating?
