Acute radiation poisoning happens when one is exposed to high amounts of ionizing radiation.
But there is a period of time where the person seems very healthy. This can last for hours or even days. Shortly after, they die immediately. Hence the term “walking ghost”
Why does this happen?
This is because what radiation poisoning does is it destroys the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces a lot of blood cells, so new blood cells can’t be made anymore.
However, the the blood cells that are already present in the body continues to circulate around and temporally work until they are “used up”
A similar effect happens in the intestinal tract.

TV show meme ➔ [4/5 female characters] Kaywinnet Lee Frye (Firefly)
I don’t believe there is a power in the ‘verse that can stop Kaylee from being cheerful. Sometimes you just want to duct tape her mouth and dump her in the hold for a month.
#I adore Kaylee so much #because her character is just so rare#someone whose soul is just so pure and sweet and good#but free of the assumptions that come with that #she is sexual #she is competent#she does crime #and none of those take anything away from her inherent innocence#she looks at the universe #and even though she has seen so much strife and pain#she still focuses on the beauty and the goodness #and I love that about her (via jaxin88)

How To Deal With Thirsty Mofos 101
The recent release of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" reminded me of one of my favorite ape vs. man films – this 1932 video that shows a baby chimpanzee and a baby human undergoing the same basic psychological tests.
Its gets weirder – the human baby (Donald) and the chimpanzee baby (Gua) were both raised as humans by their biological/adopted father Winthrop Niles Kellogg. Kellogg was a comparative psychologist fascinated by the interplay between nature and nurture, and he devised a fascinating (and questionably ethical) experiment to study it:
Suppose an anthropoid were taken into a typical human family at the day of birth and reared as a child. Suppose he were fed upon a bottle, clothed, washed, bathed, fondled, and given a characteristically human environment; that he were spoken to like the human infant from the moment of parturition; that he had an adopted human mother and an adopted human father.
First, Kellogg had to convince his pregnant wife he wasn’t crazy:
…the enthusiasm of one of us met with so much resistance from the other that it appeared likely we could never come to an agreement upon whether or not we should even attempt such an undertaking.
She apparently gave in, because Donald and Gua were raised, for nine months, as brother and sister. Much like Caesar in the “Planet of the Apes” movies, Gua developed faster than her “brother,” and often outperformed him in tasks. But she soon hit a cognitive wall, and the experiment came to an end. (Probably for the best, as Donald had begun to speak chimpanzee.)
