The Chernobyl Wildfires Are 2020's Latest Little 'Surprise'

In case anyone was still waiting for an April disaster to happen, perhaps this is it! 

For anyone not yet in the know, forest fires began burning on April 4th in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine. The fires came dangerously close to the site of the infamous Chernobyl disaster of 1986, and have released radioactive contamination into the air. The good news is that the fires have been contained, although the area has since been deemed the most polluted in the world. 

What else could go wrong in 2020!

'The X-ray Is Safe, Don't Worry' Memes Hilariously Cement Our Mistrust Of Doctors

If you've ever had an x-ray, you've probably found it a bit odd that the doctors or x-ray technicians are quick to assure you of the procedure's safety, just before hiding behind a wall to complete the process. We're certainly not the first to believe that something doesn't add up, and that sentiment is being reflected in one of our new favorite meme trends. While scientifically speaking the occasional x-ray is harmless, memers in the r/dankmemes community and on Instagram are really milking anyone's doubt. And we're loving it.

Dank memes about x-rays being safe, doctors, x-ray techs, safety.

28 Unsettling Photos From Chernobyl That'll Give You Goosebumps

These haunting photos show the aftermath of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The incident occurred in the now-abandoned Pripyat, Ukraine and required the evacuation of 40,000 residents. All image context provided by Imgur user ex9gagger

EDIT: An HBO Mini-series about the Chernobyl Disaster was released in 2019 and as a result there were many Chernobyl memes that came out around that time as a result of people learning more about the worst nuclear disaster in history. Even Russian president Vladimir Putin's media had a tough time handling the exposure that the Chernobyl miniseries caused about an event that's been covered-up and hushed-up from the moment it happened. The continued Russian reluctance to recognizing the severity of the disaster, and constant Russian attempts to suppress information about the subsequent mishandling has caused a sort of Streisand Effect and added to the mystique and allure of the otherwise taboo subject. Russian authorities were so worried with the...wait for it...fallout (pun intended) that they made the disaster worse than had they just admitted their mistakes right away.
