Know-it-all Nadin the Drama Queen is BACK!

Know-it-all Nadin is BACK! Back from where, you ask? Why, her self-imposed "break"! What, you say you missed it? You must have blinked. For DUmmie nadinbrzezinki's declared hiatus from posting did not even last 24 brzezness hours.

Let's back up a minute. Nadin had been posting away at her usual furious clip, giving us unenlightened ones the benefit of her superior yet unsolicited expert knowledge. The crisis this time was on how to prepare for the death clouds that will soon be wafting their way over from Japan to America, with the radiation finding its way into Elsie the Cow's teats. In view of this impending apocalypse, Nadin has been stocking up on pallets of Triage Milk, as per the suggestion of submarine commander Captain Nemo and nuclear engineer Homer Simpson. And she told "you people" to do likewise.

Well, Nadin's winsome ways somehow managed to alienate her fellow DUmmies ONCE AGAIN, and they let her have it, essentially DUFUing the All-Knowing One right there on DU itself! Since PJ and I both were too busy to get to it, our own DUFU Pingee, FReeper Choose Ye This Day, documented all the hilarity in this
THREAD, "Not-quite-DUmmie-FUnnies: The Brzezinski Syndrome."

But now we're past the cow-tipping point. When last we heard, the embattled Brzezinski announced she was taking a break from DUmmieland. In response, one of Nadin's few remaining loyalists posted this
THREAD, "Genuine appreciation for nadinbrzezinski thread," perhaps trying to persuade Nadin not to leave.

Well, it must have worked, because Nadin came roaring back, hours later, with this
THREAD, "Since a FEW here want to know the truth." Did Nadin learn from her mistakes and moderate her condescending style? With a thread title like "Since a FEW here want to know the truth," it does not sound promising. But let's find out.

Nadin is BACK, and DUmmie FUnnies has her! Nadin is back, and so is--for today, at least--your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who really does have a reason for taking a break. It's called "Lent"--or, as I like to call it "March Madness for Ministers" or "The Final Forty." But I've got some time today, so here goes. Bolshevik Red, [brackets], you know the drill:

Genuine appreciation for nadinbrzezinski thread.

[For all those not on Nadin's "Ignore" list, which means . . . oh, about two.]

Like most of us, I see her around quite a bit.

[Kind of like kudzu in the South.]

And she's different.

[DUmmie coti, I perceive that you are a diplomat.]

Where some repeat standard beliefs or slight variations thereof, nadin thinks past that.

[Nadin is far beyond us mere mortals.]

Keep it up, nadin.

[DUmmie FUnnies agrees! Keep it up, nadin!]

Indeed -- one of DU's distinct/unique voices...!

[She puts the "DU" in "Distinct/Unique"!]

Deleted sub-thread. Sub-thread removed by moderator.

[And so it begins. The Brzezinski Syndrome.]


[Nadin herself checks in! But, but, Nadin, I thought you were going on "break"??]

I love her clear, intelligent voice!

[CaliforniaPeggy is a Nadin fan!]

Love her posts, her wisdom and her posts about the nuclear-power-plant situation in Japan. She's got a kind spirit that really comes through the keyboard!

[Although, with all the video coming over from Japan, radiation WILL come through your keyboard and into your milk! This is WELL KNOWN!]

I'm not quite understanding all the negative reactions to her posts. . . . All the snark has me baffled.

[Other than the condescension, the lecturing, the erroneous information, the crisis-mongering, the trend-spotting, the "I'm puttin you on my iggy list," and the 500 posts a day, I don't see what the problem is!]

The wind is blowing across the Pacific.

[Hide your cows!]

[Not all are fans, it seems.]


[Well, that didn't last long. About as long as Nadin's "break." So let's go on to . . . THE RETURN OF NADINBRZEZINSKI!]

Since a FEW here want to know the truth

[Miss Congeniality is BACK, speaking truth to FEWER!]

here is very much a WORST CASE for the plant.

[Nadin KNOWS! She met a nuclear engineer in the grocry store! He was buying milk!]

Yesterday the numbers that Rachel showed for what is in the facility, what is at stake, is 1240 tonnes of material. No, not one reactor\pool, but between all of them. That is equivalent to 12 reactor cores.

[Ooh, look! Nadin said "tonnes" instead of "tons"! She must know what she's talking about!]

That be bad, as in real bad.

[Stock up! Triage milk by the pallet! Cheetos too!]

The BEST case right now is a partial meltdown and a relatively small release of radiation... (what we are seeing right now and yes it is relatively small still)

[Catch the "and yes." That is a distinctive Nadin touch.]

If any of you believes in prayer or a good... pray for this to end anywhere CLOSE to the best scenario. The worst case... is not something I can wrap my head around.

[THANKS, Nadin, oh, thank you! We would be DOOMED without YOU to guide our way!]

In the meantime my quake supplies are getting bought today.

[Quaker Oat Squares by the cord!]

The majority of DUers appear very committed to truth

[Nadin's thread title about the "FEW" didn't go over well with this first DUmmie.]

[The Brzezinski Syndrome begins quickly.]

I'm on the West Coast. Seattle was very, very lucky after a 6.7 earthquake in February, 2001. . . . It's better to be safe than sorry, and we're going to be safe by making sure we have supplies on hand.

[This DUmmie thinks Nadin is talking about stocking up on supplies just for an earthquake. No! Nadin is worried about radiation coming over the ocean and getting into our cows! Stock up on MILK!]

We are only 1 month from anarchy. If the power goes out for any extended time there isn't enough emergency services to even scratch the surface... our civilization hangs by a thread. . . .

[Our Drama Queens hang out on a thread!]

Even if all life on the surface is destroyed, those who live underground will survive, and in time will adapt to fill the open niches above ground.

[There would be no shocking memories, and the prevailing emotion will be one of nostalgia for those left behind, combined with a spirit of bold curiosity for the adventure ahead!]

The local media has been reporting an increased probability of significant earthquake on the West Coast due to Sunday's Supermoon.

[The Supermoonbats then devolve into a debate on whether the moon can cause earthquakes. But let's get back to Nadin's point about the radiation in our milk. Milk, Mandrake. Children's milk!]

I'm with you, Nadin... appreciate your information on milk, etc. Actually, last Friday when I heard of the first explosion at the plant, I sent away for a 2 weeks' supply of potassium iodide for myself and my family. . . . Only later did I learn on DU, probably not necessary. But you know what? it never hurts to be prepared. Am now encouraging all of them to keep stocks of spirulina and miso soup on hand. . . .

[Get some NUtella while you're at it! 15 barrels!]

People can bray and laugh all they want. . . .

[Which they are doing! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!]

she don't want no ray of hope! the sustenance is tradegy and misery

[Nadin can find the gray cloud around every silver lining.]

If you are within 50 miles of a US Plant keep the Iodine in storage

[Know-it-all Nadin apparently means "Iodide," as in "Potassium Iodide" (which the health officials are warning against anyways), but our all-knowing expert writes "IODINE"! Nadin is encouraging people to go to Walgreen's and clear the shelves of regular old Iodine, the stuff you put on cuts!]

right there, possible harm could be done by encouraging people that may not need the iodide to deplete the supplies for those who do, encouraged by our resident expect on everything.

[That's our Nadin!]

Postassium iodide... iodide. Say it 10 times. Iodide. Iodine won't do sh*t.

[Picky, picky, picky. . . .]

Do you have a "Kick Me" sign taped on your back?

[Nadin has that knack!]

Do you ever stop fearmongering?

[Only to do trend-spotting.]

If you don't like her posts, why do you even open them?

Cause often times the responses are comedy gold. . . .

[COMEDY GOLD! Yes indeedee!]

The OP has been spreading or trying to spread panic on this subject and others for months if not years here claiming to be informed or somehow an authority on every subject under the moon.

[And Supermoon.]

The OP is stocking up on milk waiting on the end of the world. Excuse me if I find that utterly laughable.

[Udderly laughable!]

Do they have a total of 1240 tons of mateiral? Yes or no? Is 100 tons = 1 reactor core? Yes or no.

[Nadin battles back! She's speaking truth to NUCLEAR power!]


[I detect a note of sarcasm.]

I don't need you to find out what's going on. I don't need your endless condescending nonsense. I don't believe your purported experience as an EMS makes you ANY kind of an expert in this situation. oh and you seem to to have taken the shortest break from DU in DU history.

[Even PITT took longer walk-outs!]

This thread is better than the 'milk' one, but not as good as the 'GBCW for six hours' one.

[Even the DUmmies are now evaluating Nadin threads for their comedy value!]

[I'm no Nadin, but I can spot a trend when I see one.]


[Hee! Hee!]

Locking. This just isn't going well at all.

[The Brzezinski Syndrome strikes again!]

Okay, I come back from vacation feeling rested and restored only to hear that some of my fellow Wisconsinites are buying iodine pills and surgical face masks to protect themselves from the radioactive clouds drifting across the Pacific and the Rockies from Japan!

The DUmmiefication of America. I blame the MSM.

I for one welcome our new radioactive overlords.

I hope PJ & Charles enjoyed their well-deserved vacations but it's time again to put our magnifying glasses upon the ant farm (for good purposes of course). Trend setting. I can dig it.

"Nadin is far beyond us mere mortals..."'s almost as if she had crossed some famous river or other, and left us behind...

Maybe I've been mistaken...instead of the clone of KayInMaine being a match for Troglaman, maybe nadinbrzezinski of DU is a better match. It would be more entertaining that's for sure.

Really a reference to her painfully repetitious use of the phrase 'Crossing the Rubicon,' Skul, though several of our CC buddies, and I as well, have suggested a one-way trip across that Stygian flow as an excellent alternative destination for her.
