Have you heard about the stained shadow left on the steps?
What is it?
It's literally so crazy
But when the bomb was dropped the closer you were to it the worse it was, so this man was standing on the steps and the bomb like vaporized him and stained his shadow it's honestly the craziest thing i've ever heard.
Have you learned anything from your book?
I'm starting my book tonight. I'm a little late because I have had so much to do for 1st block.
Same dude. Like I have work for history and I never have time to do it because i'm so focused on this class and ughh my grades lowering we sometimes don't have enough time for all this work.
So on the very first page of my book it talks about how a man can still be seen on a bridge and women on the steps of a bank. I'm going to look into it more, and research the permanent shadows.
Okay remember that we are going to put that in our presentation because thats crucial information and i feel like not a lot of people know about it.
My book keeps mentioning black rain.
Does your book mention that at all?
Yea mine says it lasted only a few minutes and they don't know if it really did rain or not.I din't know if that helps but in mine he says that the hospital he was at suddenly caught fire and that before when he was in there it wasn't enough space for everyone so it was cramped and they peed, pooped, and vomited all over the florr is that in yours too?
Ok also at the beginning they didn't really talk it was quiet is that the same for you?
No, at the beginning of my book it talked more about the bomb itself and some of the science behind it. It also talked about what happened to the bodies when the bomb struck.
Did they talk about a hospital in your book?
Yeah only one but i forgot the name i'll look it up.
Also where is the things fall apart book?
It was called Hiroshima communications hospital before it burned down.
Ok never mind I finally found the Things Fall Apart book.
They talk about that hospital in my book as well.
Do they refer to the bombing as "pika-don" in your book?
Also does your book talk about how they're clothes are gone and the radiation sickness?
I don't think they called it the pika-don but i'll go back and check and yeah they have the radiation sickness that's making them have diarrhea and in my book it said that some people have 40 or more bloody stools in one night, so they put them in isolation.
^^^^^ their* yikes
I got to a part in my book that talked about what happened in the hospital and everything you said earlier was mentioned in my book as well.
Okay also in my book it said that people were walking around like scarecrows with their skin hanging off their bodies and that some people drowned in lakes in pools trying to get away from heat and that people from other cities saw it but they thought that they were okay and that one little bomb wouldn't hurt them that bad.
Oh wait one more thing the soldiers they said it looked like that had no faces that it all melted off and their ears too so you didn't know if you were looking at their face or their backs and I was wondering if that's in your book too.
I finished my book and wrote my essay.
My book said stuff like that too.
There was a part in my book that said that people thought if they ground up the bones of those who died and ate it, it would keep them from dying.
What the world. Okay so to your earlier reply I looked and they do say pikadon or just pika
Yeah, mine refers to just pika more than pika don
Did you hear about the dead on the person on the bike.
Yeah, where half the body was there?
Yeah and he was burnt.
Yeah that was mentioned in my book too.
My hospital ran out of supplies and they had to travel to go get more what about you.
They talked about running out of supplies in my book too.
Did your book talk about what happens to a body chemically if they were at ground zero?
No. What happens?
They're compressed into a gas and carbonized.
I'm going to research it more to see how accurate it is.
Ok there is a word that they use that means i'm in so much pain but i forgot it do you know it?
I don't remember something like that being said in my book.
Oh in my book in the hospital everyones always screaming that
My book just talks about what is happening to people in the hospital.
Like relating to the radiation sickness.
Oh i'll find the word and put it on here.
Did your book talk about people having premonitions of something terrible happening before the bomb hit?
No they were like they were having a good day and didn't excpect anything out of the ordinarily
Did your book talk about what the bomb did to people's vision?
As in eyesight.
No all mine said was that they had painful bowels and kept throwing up everywhere.
My book said that one man's vision was corrected, or he could see clearer with out glasses than before.
It also mentioned that people went blind or had poorer vision so i guess ill have to look into it.
My book mentioned the explosion interfering with people's tooth fillings.
I'm not sure how true it is though. Did yours saying anything about that?
Yea I think so we should research that
I might add it to my investigation of truths paper if I have extra time to research more information.
Did your book talk about the buildings being fluid?
Mine said they were plasma, completely gone, or just the outer shell remained.
Yes and it said that they just fell into themselves and that all that they left was a big pile of ruins
Did your book say anything about teeth being more resilient than bones?
In my book, it said that the bones were completely burned to ash, but people's teeth were left behind. There was a part where it said there were just teeth laying on the sidewalk and nothing else.
It said that when the soldiers face was melted off and that all was left were their pearly whites.
Do you think thats actually true or is it a research question.
I think we should research it.
I already finished my investigation of truths, but you could use that for one of yours.
Alright works for me.
My book talked about what was happening with the Americans who dropped the bomb.
It turns out that the plane that dropped the Nagasaki bomb was low on fuel and couldn't make it back to a U.S. base.
So do you know what happened to it?
Yeah, they had to land on a recently liberated island in the pacific.
The pilot just wasted a lot of fuel by circling around a possible target city before flying to Nagasaki.
Does your book say that hiroshima wont be habitable for 75 years?
Also do you have the Aioi or T bridge mentioned in yours?
So for symptoms of the bomb it says vaginal bleeding??
Okay also it's said that the bomb was heard from 20 miles or more what the heck that would explain the deafness right?
Do they mention in the days after how unbearingly hot it is?
