“A million residents of the Chelyabinsk Province in Russia found out what happens when radioactive waste is not properly stored or cooled, between 1948 and 1990 -not that they were told what was happening. The Worldwatch Institute calls it the “most polluted spot” in history.” mental_floss

Why yes, that is me standing by a lake in Chelyabinsk. How picturesque.
